    I have witnessed some bikers driving like the want to die. Doing 100km on the middle lane in town, some just like swerving the bike for no reason at all. Lifting the from wheel is not ayoba. Mind the Car Bikers

      we do try mind the car, but have you seen how some nutters drive? Too busy texting; doing makeup or picking thier noses to pay attention. As for speeding, it goes both ways, only the bike takes the hit.
