Bus Lanes - action needed!

iancol, 31 January 2009 09:07

This is taken from Honda Owners' Club website: "Apparently Transport for London are receiving very few comments from motorcyclists about the new London-wide TfL trial of motorcycles in red-route bus lanes. The latest news is that as part of the evaluation of the scheme 'users views' will be taken into account and 'numbers responding' will play a part in this. "It's ...

Safer barriers won't be a priority

iancol, 23 December 2008 22:16

In this week's MCN the issue of the dangers of crash barriers to bikers is aired, including a wish that the UK Govt would follow the French in implementing safer crash barriers. Is this the France where they still have city centre underpasses wuth no crash barriers at all? That apart, there's a statistic in the article that only 1% ...

Another kind of speed camera?

iancol, 22 August 2008 09:32

I saw what looked like a new speed trap arrangement yesterday, in S Yorks. It was a black box on a tripod, similar in appearance but a bit bigger than one of the old-fashioned glass plate cameras. It was in the central reservation, hidden partly by the street furniture and placed to catch rear number plates. I only spotted it ...

Time for another fuel protest?

iancol, 02 November 2007 11:06

The following e-mail is circulating. Sounds OK to me. We are hitting 95p a litre in some areas now, soon we will be faced with paying £1 a litre. Philip Hollsworth offered this good idea: This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the 'don't buy petrol on a certain day campaign that was going around last April or May! The oil ...

20mph speed limit for motorcyclists?

iancol, 22 October 2007 17:10

The recent article by two non-biker idiots caused a lot of comment. Well, I came across these two over the Snake Pass today. I was following a couple of trucks at the road speed limit of 50mph when they suddenly slowed down to 5mph on a double white line section and stayed at that speed for quite a while. I ...

Road debris

iancol, 14 October 2007 21:24

I understand that BMF are to campaign for cleaner roads and quicker clean up after problems. My experience today suggests they'll have their hands full. As I passed a busy junction (entry to a supermarket) I had to swerve to miss a construction barrier that was supposed to be protecting a road centre excavation. Along with all the other 3 ...

Anti-bike petrol stations

iancol, 22 September 2007 20:27

You have to be a bit more sympathetic to the petrol stations. There must have been bad experiences for the helmets-off policy to have been adopted in so many places. It's not universal, thank heavens. My local is a Morrisons place and, even though it asks bikers to de-hat, they don't enforce it. In my case, when I first went in ...
