P.S. - people that don't know how to/have the required tools to fix their own damn punctures get on my tits.

On a recent ride I had the second puncture ever in 40 years of riding motorcycles.
I really appreciated the tools and assistance I got from my riding mates.
Now I will also be able to help others in a similar predicament.

My biggest irritation on a ride is generally when there is more than 3 okes. The more peeps the more potential problems and irritations :mwink:

People that stop to take photos and then come flying past and roosting you only to stop again in 700 meters to take some photos.

Lucky that dont happen on scooter runs :biggrin:

1 = People that continuously talk about themselves. Me,myself and I syndrome. >:(
2 = riders that think their equipment is better than everyone elses.
3 = riders who buy state of the art GPSs and get lost in the first 100kms because they don't know how to use them.
4 = CHEAPSKATES
5 = riders riding with a thousand patches on their tubes

I always tell whomever that wants to ride with me their irritating faults and and ask them to tell me mine and it works out well when we do the trips but I do solo a heck of a lot because it's peaceful.

That one idiot that does not do proper maintenance on his bike and always has some sort of issue on a ride.

More so on plastic bikes, but I have experienced this with DS bikes as well.
