Mirror Kicking
« on: May 04, 2009, 09:55:56 am »
Yesterday on the Ben Schoeman towards Jhb a superbiker tried to kick out my cars mirror since I didn't allow him enough room to pass. Roadworks equals no space for moving OUT OF THE WAY. Eish...I was disappointed  since I travel mostly by bike and always defend my fellow cavemen/woman on two wheels when motorists slander us. For this guy on his GSXR1000 with no plate be careful cos jy gaan nog jou gat sien. Unfortunately he will not read this since Wild Dogs are DECENT people.

Ja, reason why I don't like calling myself a "biker".  I've been told in Oz they distinguish between "bikers" and "bikies", the latter being the unlawful, gang-hanging type.  Has anyone come up with a name for the better sort of motorcyclist?

Se moer, I will run him of is bike, any guy kicking car mirrors is a asshole. And not having a number plate tells you he is spineless twat.

Things like this make my blood boil - we work so damn hard to work up some goodwill so that cagers will give us a break - then some guy goes and with one run up the highway, manages to get everyone p!ssed at bikers for weeks to come - and then we wonder why some people wont give us a gap....

I posted this on TB - without mentioning names - hope the guy sees the post - I would love to hear his view !

Mirrors have a way of biting the foot that kicks them. Natural selection sorts these guys out, just too bad they taint our reputation in the process.
Don't waste any more time.

Lots of wisdom from the WD team. Thanks Moondog. Hope the offender bragged about his "accomplishment" so that someone that knows him can read this and kick him op sy tottie.

So what's your suggestion? Throw him some kisses?

Go for him, ride him of his bike, clap him with a door, throw him with a brick.  :thumleft: >:D :biggrin:

I think you should ride 200kph to catch him and then when you do you should give him a stern lecture on riding ethics.
Isnt that what your hero would have done?
