Cruising to work this morning, sitting on around 115, when a Ford Focus went past me (too bloody close for comfort - why do people have to merge with only 3" clearance, especially at speeds like that - and nearly blew me off - must have been doing over 200! quickly followed by a SUV and then 2 green P platers - I guess the race was on, no prisoners either.

I am so glad we are all responsible citizens and would never even contemplate speeds like that...

Morning Tony
Good that you are ok
Pisses me when cars/drivers treat motorcycles as second class !!!!
Some of them seem to recon it's our problem to get out of their way, bastards !!! And they can just barge thru.
Stay safe all

Looks like yer gonna hafta breakout the mini RPG - so satisfying to waste those that deeply deserve it !!!!

My area is inundated with "speed po-leece" at the moment. Speed cameras, unmarked cars and hand held radar bloody everywhere. We're all gonna end up running pedal cars and wearing Michelin Man suits ......

Me doing 80? against my religion. It's a rare vehicle indeed that goes faster en me. I push the envelope pretty hard.

Hey Tony, I got blown off by a Focus once.
On my Hypermotard going up Peachester range, I was seriously toe tapping the bitumen every corner with not enough room or speed to get past. There are no straights on this hill climb and the Focus used a little more road than he should have, but his corner speed was equal to the Ducati.

At the top he gave me the thumbs up as if to say I done good. I returned the gesture.
