Man i hate when the media/police say stupid shit on TV.

the guy that got hit on his bike today up in auckland when a truck in front of him decided to do a U turn and turned in front of the bike while he was passing, the news said that police said "IF" he was wearing a hi vis vest the accident "MAY" have been avoided.

"IF" the truck was obeying the law and pulled over to the left and looked over his shoulder before comencing the U turn like the road code say's, the accident "DEFINATLY WOULD" have been avoided.

IF his Granny had balls she would have been his Grandad!

I nearly got taken off my SR by some prick on a 67 BSA on my way home from the Calssic Racing Festival. He was dressed like a typical "Bike Enthusiast "and he must have got pissed that I was on a Yamaha cafe racer and not a "real bike" so he tried to get a close to me as he could when he was passing. Pricks like that bugger us all up. Funnily enough I got round the next corner and a traffic cop had pulled up a Brit bike. Pity it wasn't the BSA but it was a rare rotary norton.

that pissed me off so bad,it was like last week i think it was,when tv3 showed bike crashes but it was the old footage of the bikers that had run from police and crashed .not all bikers are cracked out & have warrants and need to do runners.and the other thing is the police saying on tv "we gave up the chase seconds before" YEAH RIGHT.just before xmas i watch a police chase out from of our shop, the cop was hard up him when the car wrote off two other cars,we see police chases most days
