Bikers from hell not Hull
Since yesterday afternoon, I have been receiving abusive offensive comments referred from three Internet websites these are http://www.superbikeforums.co.uk/index.php/topic,13349.0.html
All these abusive, remarks presumably come from motorcyclists who apparently took exception to me objecting to transport minister Steven Ladyman's opposition to improved European Union road safety laws.
I will admit that my knowledge of motorcycling is limited and all I know of motorcycling is what I have heard from owners and riders of motorbikes, who seem always to delight in stories of excessive speed.
Perhaps my biggest failing, as far as motorcyclists are concerned, is my ignorance concerning the motorcycle lane, now what I do know about the motor cycle lane, is that only a motorcycles are allowed to use it, the lane markings are completely invisible to any other road user, and there is generally an unmarked motor cycle lane on every road.
How do you spot, the motorcycle lane? Well this can be difficult, but on a motorway , the motorcycle lane will be in the middle of two lanes, perhaps the best example of this is on the M2/A2 and can be observed at peak times, what you will generally notice, is a motorcyclists hanging very close to your vehicle generally to the left-hand side of your lane, then when the traffic is at almost peak congestion but it still travelling at speed and a whilst you're concentrating on the traffic in front, you suddenly realise, that effectively, you are driving for two, not only do you have to consider your reactions to the traffic flow, you now have to consider the reactions of a motor cyclist, you don't know who is either dangerously close to your rear bumper, or alternatively trying to find a blind-spot, somewhere to the left of your vehicle.
The motorcycle lane, on a minor road, will generally make itself apparent when you realise that you have either a motorbike or scooter 3 ft from your rear bumper, you can as I do gently tap on the brakes(NOT SLOW BUT TO ILLUMINATE THE BRAKE LIGHTS) , so that the bike rider is aware of the danger, although generally this provokes a hostile reaction.
One of thing you must remember with the motorcycle lane, normal traffic laws are suspended for the motorcyclists.
I suggest you, look at my previous posting on this matter, read-through the comments and at least be thankful that the correspondents have been polite, informative, non-threatening, non-sexist, non homophobic and reasonable dispelling those terrible stereotypical views.
Again I would say it looks like someone orchestrated the abuse, which I received yesterday and presumably will continue you to receive.
I suggest any of my critics get their own at blogsite, stop intimidating people.
Perhaps the most insulting of these remarks found on the above Web links are those that suggests that I hate motorcyclists this is not the case, most of the contributors are clearly filled with so much hate and bigotry, perhaps they just need a big hug wonder if David Cameron would oblige.
It's a pity the administrators, of these motorbikes sites allow such appalling abuse of someone they don't know.
