"The biker couldn't wait long enough. He revved the GS probably to warn him, but the begger wasn't moving fast enough - some beggers do move slow. He didn't nudge him, no. He put the left wedged hand guard of a bmw straight into the begger's left lung/shoulder at a ferocious take-off speed."

If you read the above, you can tell this was no mistake, and even if it was, riding off makes you guilty. No excuse can forgive that act.

Hit him in the lung/shoulder  .......... with a GS ... ??? and now all of you mirror kickers want to hang the guy  ???
If you had a psychic midget who killed someone, you would have a small medium at large.

It seems you just called me a mirror kicker.   :bootyshake:

How many mirror have you seen me kick? In fact, how many times have you seen me brag about kicking a mirror?  Have you even heard anyone mention me kicking a mirror?  Pray, do tell!   ???

It is a symptom of social discontent.

Beggers always at every intersection, always in the way, pressing their foreheads against your window invading your privacy because they cant take no for an answer when, in point of fact, they should not even be allowed to be there from a safety and traffic flow point of view.

You ignore that and waltz around in the traffic - you take your own chances. Most people will not react so wilfully, but you catch the wrong motorist / biker at the wrong time and things like this could happen.

I don't kick in mirrors and I don't hide behind a big mouth, but I am willing to learn.  When is your next course?   :imaposer:

Eendstop, your comment:-

"The rider's version: Just as I was pulling away this guy moved towards me.  I swerved and was afraid of an attack.  I did feel a little bump and thought it was him trying to attack me and I was fortunate that he merely managed to just bump against my bike in stead of hitting me off it.  I was scared and rode away as fast as I could.  I am unaware that he was injured,  and if so,  it was self inflicted through his attempted attack on me........ Or something to that effect.

I believe JZ is in need of a new spin doctor, with your above spin, I think you should forward your CV, imagine the perks.......

I do not condone the behaviour of the guy on the GS, but comparing his behaviour/attitude to the genocide that is happening to our farmers is ridiculous! FFS!   >:(

All the okes saying the beggar should not have been there obviously have not fallen on hard-enough times to warrant begging.

Imagine having to get up every day, knowing you'll be standing amongst vehicles the whole day, risking yourself for a little bit of mercy-income. Just because lots of most beggars are arrogant, squander the money they get, drink excessively, etc does not mean they actually enjoy being there. Yes, they may be lazy. Yes, they may be beggars. Yes, they are foolhardy to stick around amongst the cars. But is that an excuse to discard their humanity, and see them as lesser humans as yourself just because you don't beg, have a big bike and a steady income?

Yes!!!

Just kidding. I agree and often feel for the guys but that pity comes to an end as soon as I have a bad experience with the individual. And when you keep commuting the same routes you tend to get to know the guy's character.

FFS people!  It does not matter if the beggar was standing there illegally, faking a limp or scratching his balls.  If you willingly hit ANY person on the road and scramble away, you are a coward with f-all integrity.  I cannot believe some of the shit excuses some of you are manufacturing...
