[quote="genie numpty making a last minute lane change without looking. at least your guy was decent enough to stick around and responsible enough to be carrying insurance.

Does that mean you can drive over there without insurance??

Here in ON, you don't licence without it.
If you have outstanding traffic violations, you don't licence.
If you are late with child support you don't licence.

You folks over there, have a much more "user friendly" system.

First off, glad you're ok. Whats wrong with the bike?

Also, I think every Audi driver drives like a cock so that people don't mistake their cars for the VW's they are based on.....

actually in my neighbourhood the number one dickmobile is still the merc. and in hackney they have the added bonus of having gleaming exteriors but dodgy MOTs and are likely to give you a blast of oily exhaust smoke as they overtake you because they're arrogant twats that can't stand being behind a scooter.
It seems to be a problem with cagers, that if a bike, scoot or any PTW is ahead of them, and holding or even exceeding the limit, they have to be passed.

It also seems to be that the bigger the cage, the more aggressive the attitude.

I don't want to sound misogynistic (and I'm not), but over here the most aggressive cagers are young women on cell phones.

What is your take over there???

Noted! If I'm riding at or over the speed limit (it is possible on a 50, but only on some roads) then more often than not I have some total penis about 3 inches from my back wheel...for ages...and ages...and ages...then they pass, leaving me about an inch of free air between their side mirror and my elbow

But it seems to me that the drivers of smaller and crappier cars are the main culprit in my case Laughing emoticon I think they are bullied by cocks in Audis and the like, then they pass it on "down" the food chain, i.e me on my little orange scooter.

F**k 'em anyway, they are going to have to get closer than that in order to really piss me off enough to kick their door

no, not legally, but that doesn't stop loads of people from doing it... and from driving with suspended licenses, or without any kind of license at all.

it's difficult to generalize since there are so many different varieties of twats on the road. one thing i notice is the number of blokes on PTWs who seem hell bent on overtaking me, only to slow down when they finally pass it happened to me this morning - buddy thrashed it on a straight section of road in order to pass me, only to slow to a crawl in a very nice set of corners at the end of it. Livid emoticon plonker.

Ok, perhaps I'm a knothead. I get the gist of this comment, but merc, in hackney, and MOTs are another language to me. Translation please?

I am glad to hear you and your Berks are OK Kam.
What a rotten time for your scoot to be in the shop.

merc = mercedes

MOT is the annual check-up that all motor vehicles over 3 years old are required to have to ensure that they meet specs for safe operation.

The only cocks that drive Audis have graduated from a BMW.

But they are still cocks.

Agreed Dedorah ?

ooh, this thread makes me want a curry. easily solved with barwachi, and their chef pushpa who's well know in bombay apparently, only a phone call away.

i must say, i don't think the audi was the essence of this incident.

it was the fact that cagers just don't look before they suddenly change direction, whereas any scooterist worth his/her salt wouldn't dream of swerving across the road without looking first.

still, it's friday, i'm on my second beer, and a curry will be on its way in a couple of hours.

life is sweet. despite its mishaps.

I agree about the car. It wasn't the Honda that knocked me down last week. It was the dorky young driver - who did not look. If I had been in a car I would still have been hit. Although I do exercise paticular caution around white SUVs. I have seen enough poor driving in several of these to make me watch out for them, especially near a school drop off zone.


Thanks for the translation above.

You stayed upright and were uninjured - well done you!
You were virtually stationary when a cock in a cum-mobile bumped into you.
IMO you deserve to continue saying 13 years without falling off.
Good luck with the insurance and wishing you another 13+ years of trouble free riding.

Amazing track record and hope that the wounds of the soul heal soon. I am glad that your legshield took the beating but not your leg!

Could this accident have been averted by not driving at night, the probable distraction of the marvelous smell of the BBQ with your parents, (beer, the T-Bones, bell peppers in olive oil slightly burned, some yellow corn that we have in this latitude, companionship, et al) or perhaps avoiding the nightmarish rush hour traffic, and of course seeing the "cum" license plate on the A4 beforehand as a signal of an inexperienced, young, albeit wealthy driver insured? Could we the two wheelers, scooterists, cyclists and motorcyclists be spared of the carnage in our highways (a fact of life and death in Costa Rica), imposed by the four wheelers without any sensibility nor expertise towards us?

Thanks for your account, and may you put a pin in your parka with the serigraphy of an A4 like the RAF pilots used to paint in their planes the Fokewulfs that they downed during WWII!
