    Maybe, but there are hundreds of corners for any ride we get to do from Welly. I don't mind missing the odd one. Esp if I have Lisa on the back.

    I am sure any rider doing that would certainly change the way they rode if they had a head on collision and survived to ride again. And you lot think I am the muppet rider!!

    Its actually an offense to cross the centre line unless overtakeing irrespective of how clear ahead the road appears to you. Shit can still happen on clear roads.

    It's an offence to go faster than 100kph too. Eat a dick.

    Well, you can cross a solid yellow line on your right if turning right or overtaking a bunch of cyclists, you can cross a solid white line on your right to enter a flush median or right turn bay and I'm pretty sure you can cross a solid white line on your left when turning in to a driveway. Apart from that you are bang on.

    Nah, if she's riding a muppet then we'll have to look out for smurfs. The tooth fairy will be doing speed control and the easter bunny will be on roadworks duty. Please try and keep up, we're practising for a group ride
    If the words I say offend you, imagine the ones I keep to myself...

    this daug says

    Can’t be a muppet rider, you can talk sense to a muppet.

    muppets are entertaining as well, it’s time to light the lights......
