Breaking mirrors is an idiotic thing to do!  If your neighbors pisses you off do you break their windows?
Of course not. You mos can't escape from your neighbor in the traffic and he is going to blijsem you :pot:

... I ride without a number plate on my bike, but have fitted and fully pre-paid e-tags on all my cars. Senseless contrasts!



Only one sin bigger than paying for etolls on wilddogs and that's admitting that you pay.

Vandag op n plaaslike blad. Gelukkig is geen spiels gebreek nie.

Die Ooste verwys hier na Pretoria

Nicolene Fourie‎ to Eks van die Ooste

BIKERS en INWONERS (VAN DIE OOSTE)!!
Aan die "dame" wat gister, 1 Maart (seker jou vervelige Sondag ritueel) by die garage op die h/v Witdoring en Rubensteinweg, jou Sondag koerantjie met jou 3 woefers in die kar, gaan koop het:
Dis onduidelik presies watse haatlike gevoelens jy teen bikers (sekerlik in die algemeen) koester, maar ek wil graag vandag my EIE gal teenoor JOU braak!! Sou dit natuurlik bo oor jou wou doen maar ek verset myself daarteen om tot op JOU vlak te daal!!
Vir JOU "dame", (wat ek wonder of jy aarvoeding ontvang want jou bek is pretty walglik vir iemand van jou ouderdom of is jy eintlik nog in jou veertigs maar lyk net of jy alreeds aan die verkeerde kant van 70 trek?) wil ek s:
* Jy het hoegenaamd geen rede gehad om jou "cool" te verloor nie;
* Jy het 4 uiters beskaafde bikers as "f....n selfsugtig" begin beledig omdat jy te kortsigtig was om te besef dat ons k geregtig is op parkering!! As jy die vorige nag se slaap uit jou o gewas gehad het teen 07:48, sou jy gesien het dat daar 7 ander vakante parkerings tot jou beskikking was!
* Jy swaai met veels t veel gemak
jou middel vingertjie rond en ek WIL jou verseker dat jou barbaarsheid gaan verseker dat jy guarenteed en gruwelik jou moses gaan tekom in die nabye toekoms!!
Indien dit sou wees dat ons NIE beskaafde Harley bikers is wat met geweldig baie trots die patch op ons rug dra (reeds omdat ons klub verteenwoordig en ondersteun waar ons radikale verskil maak in die lewens van geweldig baie behoeftige en minder bevoorregtes - met die fokus op senior burgers, gestremde- en hawelose volwassenes en kinders asook verwaarloosde en mishandelde diere wat deur siek samelewing verwerp is!), beskaafde, goed opgevoede, beleefde gerespekteerde BESIGHEIDSEIENAARS (waarvan een nogal prokureur k is!!), kan en wl ek jou waarborg dat jy waarskynlik die moontlikheid in die gesig gestaar het om helmet (of ng erger!), deur jou ruit te kon h!!
* Jou gedrag word as ROAD RAGE bestempel en indien jou onaanvaarbare, barbaarse optrede jouself nog nie tot insig geruk het nie, WL ek vir jou s dat jy gewetenlose, onopgevoede, disrespected, sot vir die samelewing is!!
Deur jou wens uit te spreek "dat ons in boom vasry", SONDER ENIGE REDE, het ek geen ander afleiding om te maak behalwe dat jou man jou dalk nie gelukkig gehou het die aand van tevore nie en jou droom om op skrikkeljaar "bevredigend" aan die slaap te kan raak, in skerwe is want nou sl jy ng vier jaar mt wag!!
PS Indien jou uitgesproke noodlot karma wending of nadraai sou h en ons verder op die pad op jou sou afkom, sou dit ONS gewees het wat sou stop om jou mediese bystand te kan verleen!!
Mevrou, die lewe druk swaar op almal! Jy is geen uitsondering en beslis nie meer spesiaal nie! Jou gesindheid teenoor jou medemens (en VERAL inwoners van jou onmiddellike omgewing), kan egter positiewe OF negatiewe gevolge h!!
Groetnis! Ons kyk uit vir mekaar ... jou karretjie met veelvuldige brandewyn merke op is nogal onsmaaklik opsigtelik!!

Eileen Saayman Wag... Sy kon nie voor die winkel parkeer nie want julle was eerste daar en sy het haar shit verloor?

Nicolene Fourie Eileen Saayman Absoluut!! Inteendeel, ons WAS NIE eens voor die quick shop geparkeer nie!!! Ons was in die parkeer area geparkeer!!

Eileen Saayman Nicolene Fourie ag my liewe aarde. Dis nou waaragtig belaglik! Baie goed geskryf ook. Dis baie meer ordentlik as wat ek sou s of doen.

Nicolene Fourie Eileen Saayman Ek het met doel gewag om eers vandag te reageer!!


Fokkit, hierdie Nicolene bird is maar ook net so deur die kak. Seker iets in die water daai kant.

Sulke random comments laat my altyd dink aan iets wat my skeinat onnie altyd teen haar muur gehad het:

Took the car for this mornings dark, rainy commute. The only guy that I saw approaching, was the guy with the yellow lens cover and brights. Could move over and give him enough space. The other 3 guys were on dims, and blended in with the car headlights behind me. I only noticed them when they were rights next to me.

You dead right HW  :thumleft:

Cannot understand how people claim to be "blinded" by bike lights... they should quit staring behind them and rather look where the hell they going... ;D I ride orange lens cover, brights on always and believe me they know I am there, whether they like it or not is the least of my concern.... ::)

The debate on bright, or not bright is as old as lights on bikes and will continue as long as there are two bikers alive on earth.  In the end, if you read a bit about inattentional blindness, you will realise that the brightness of the light is nowhere near as important as those who believe in riding on bright seem to think it is.  What is very important is for you to be different to the surrounding patterns and this is where the two extra spotlights, yellow / amber headlight, etc. excel.

Personally, I prefer dim purely because that leaves me with the flasher option.

Nobody cares about you flashing them.  They just keep doing what they are doing...

I have orange lights on with bright and when I come down a straight the approaching car overtakes another into my lane expecting me to move and make space because I am smaller.  I flash...not even a wave to "apologise".

Nowadays I rather use my middle finger instead of  flashing them.  Much more satisfaction

My experience is very different to yours, but I am happy to accept your experience works for you.

We all have these intriguing experiences while riding through traffic. Sometimes quite a few on one day. And some that just stand out because of their strange / funny / so otherwise peculiarity.

This morning riding through heavy, blocked-up traffic, two lanes. Most vehicles, again, made effort to give me space. And I thanked them. Then this one vehicle in the left lane with both its wheels just about touching the white line came up ahead. There was plenty of space to its left.  A female driver. I could see her face in her side mirror. She was eyeing me. From where she was three cars ahead I saw her watching me solidly all the way till I got to her car, not making any move. Fortunately the driver to my right made a space. I passed her. I left the sanctity of her mirror intact, but I gave her the finger. And I enjoyed it.
