They’re supposed to be the best riders on the road, trained to the highest possible standard to deal with any eventuality. But judging by this picture, taken at Scotland Yard, parking isn’t covered.  The five bikes dominoed causing thousands of pounds worth of damage after an officer “slipped while putting his stand down,” according to a police source. The BMWs...

Shame the bunch of tossers weren't on them!!!

It's funny how going for a few donuts before you go out to penailise the Nation for speeding (when its clearly about the money) can cost so badly!!!!

THAT is funny.

How much damage

Where does our tax £ go? £1800 for a driveshaft on a dropped RT at a standstill. I dropped a R1200RT on a car park, held on to it and wound up on topof bike unable to get up, mates pulled  me off the bike,  bloody funny. Damage a scuffed pannier lid and engine protector. mirror clipped straight back on. Cost £35 for a cylinder protector and a drink to a mate to spray pannier lid. A BM is not made of chocolate if a drop like that ruins the final drive then god help us.

a freind of mine recently saw 5 police motorcyclists crash ino one another on a round-about whilst on some training i presume, the second to last rider hit the one in front and all bar 1 ended up on their arses. My friend got out of her car and tried to take a picture on her phone but the police officers involved were quick to prevent her from doing so.

Typical

How typical of today's "society" that rather than help a fallen rider, a muppet would rather take a picture! Pathetic
