    I've recently been pondering about 'those' types of riders - they don't seem to go down despite making a effort to get splattered.

    The seats on Katooms they are hard,

    they take but a toll on your lard

    To stay off the grass

    You get off your arse

    and pretend you are riding motard

    I think I only see one person behaving badly, and a whole lot of other people talking on their phones. No.34 of how many?? Sheesh.

    I have been known to look pointedly (sometimes while pointing) at people obviously on their phones while driving, but this guy is just making things worse. He needs another hobby or he's going to get hurt.

    am curious, Mr Templeton can be an interesting character to say the least but I always thought of him as a better than average rider, was he really using the whole road? or was it a case of him using the entire lane? Different thing altogether. In any event, lectures....yeah nah...

    Whole road safely avail to us. He's reduced quite a few of my female customers to tears, either talking down to them, like they're fucking idiots, or scaring shit out of them trying to show them he's the man. I don't send anyone to him anymore.

    Not the first person who said that to me, nor will you be the last, nor is he the only one who can talk down to people. Sad really.

    Back on point, I like to use the whole lane, not at the cost of holding others up though, I know I am not an amazing rider.

    I'll use the whole road if it's free and clear to make things smoother.

    That sort of attitude doesn't help anybody.

    The whole time he was filming people chatting on phones he wasn't paying attention to the road.

    I used to do that, but after reading Ienatch I changed. He advises strongly that you don't even ride with people who cross the centre line which does seem tough, but he has his reasons. For me though it seems a shame to ride for miles then when you come to a nice S bend you just turn it into another straight. That's like missing out on some of the fun.
