    My triumph has three cylinders!!! ;)

    As for my biker code, stopping as stated is standard; warning for speed traps is another! Nodded greeting to any bike would be 3, encouraging brotherhoodlyness!
    Don’t touch another’s bike without discussing with the owner...
    errr... don’t eat yellow snow!
    Forgive your enemies, but know their names and where they live...

    POLITE’ HI-VIZ VEST WEARERS ARE INTER-BREEDING THANKS TO NEW APP

    Reports are coming in that the unfathomable explosion in bikers wearing hi-viz ‘POLITE’ vests is being caused by the wearers breeding with each other.

    Fed up with other bikers ripping the piss out of them or otherwise being ignored at biking events, the riders have taken to ‘gettin’ it on’ with each other instead.

    In the new dating app, ‘Plodder’, bikers who like pretending they are police officers can share pictures of themselves wearing the vests.

    If they like what they see, the dating app features a map of local police stations they can meet round the back of.
    When we showed the app to Sgt Andy Worral of Humberside Police he raised his eyebrows and said, “This explains a lot.”

    He went on, “We see them all the time with a slightly sheepish look on their faces. We couldn’t work out why we saw so many of them near the station. Now we know.”

    In other reports, research has found that car drivers can actually tell the difference between the words Police and Polite and, instead of taking greater care when driving behind bikers wearing them, have started to use them for target practice.

    :D:D

    Thats an old one..... I think it was Ogri? A term for ordinary people, squares, dinks that drove Ovlovs. You know, deckchair in the boot, thermos flask (plaid) leaves a teabag in every layby it parks in?

    Sheeple?

    Apologies for the duplicate post. Interthingummybob is having a dickyfit.

    That's a new one on me Big Sandy but I get the picture, I'm not the most mechanical soul but I would and have a few times, stopped for any biker looking like they were in bother and changed a tyre on a couple of occasions for the fairer sex who had flats.

    Hilarious - the advice seems dated... keep to the left?!? My arse, that will get you knocked off. As for flapping your arms like a deranged chicken...

    On the stopping to help debate, I presume that doesn’t include stopping for broken down Harley Davidsons? The rider has some responsibility to ride something roadworthy and reliable...

    I remember those days and having to riding in that manor whilst taking my test on 4th January 1967.
    This was the all shown in the Highway Code back then and don’t forget not many bikes had indicators and there was a lot less traffic around.
    I also think that car drivers were more aware of motorcyclist as there were more being used for everyday transport instead of dry weather weekend toys as now.

    Ah, the 4th... I remember it well, a Wednesday. As I recall I had an exceedingly satisfying poo in my nappy that day.

    I think more people could afford a bike, and not a car. One time toffs and rich could afford horses, then treaders, then motorcycles, then cars. The poor masses were left to use the outmoded transport... Motorbikes were seen as a poor working man's transport for a long time.

    Boots on the other foot now suckers!
