    My main bike has 93ftlb at 3k rpm. Still won't pull out in front of a car for giggles.

    The camera van operator who works around the region here has a dirty big SLR with a lense on it about 400mm long for just those special shots the fixed camera doesn't get

    The AA has never liked motorcycles despite the majority of riders also having cars and in some cases - used to be AA members.

    I was a member for decades - then the AA moved from being an organisation that advocated for its members and road users in general to being an insurance company... I also had some professional dealings with them. Worse people I ever dealt with period....

    I'm no longer a member and refuse to touch any product or service that goes near them. I'd encourage you to do the same.

    I emailed the guy who made the comments in the AA, seems his go to topic for the media is petrol prices, I wonder how that qualifies him to comment on motorcycles, or speeding.
    I also copied their magazine editor and comms director into the email.
    It was a rant and I do not expect much from it, I do wonder if they will even acknowledge a complaint from a member (me). If they don't I will follow up by contacting the CEO or whatever he is called directly. I am more interested in how they respond to member issues than anything else. The guy who made the comments is just a knob.

    Dumb shit.

    Anyone can get away with speeding - until you are caught.



    Hmmmm - maybe, just maybe there is a solution here to cover the multi taxing of ACC fees if you own multiple bikes, the speed camera issue and motorcycle safety.

    I'm almost scared to suggest it......... it's kind of logical, even doable.......... Nooooooo

    Just legislate to ensure all helmets must be fluro yellow with a rego number on the front and rear .....

    Front rego plates will be the bizz ... they'll grow on you ... and any pedestrian you run down wont notice the front plate. What (extra) harm could it do .. ??

    Ha - it would imprint into their skin in reverse it you hit them hard enough.

    I keep looking at my Ducati - no way a friggin front plate is going on it.

    Unless the following are available as personalised plates:

    FUCKU

    FKYOU

    etc - you get the idea.
