Yep, it is my opinion agreed.
I think you are missing the point..
you are right, you didn't see the bikers cause an accident, probably because they were stopped before it happened, the way they were riding it was inevitable, no one, however good a rider they are could ever say that they were in total control of a bike doing 'power slides' or wheelying up a road doing 80mph....if you do then sorry, you are deluded! it was pure luck that the cameras didn't witness something pretty horrific!!
The police were doing their job, ie, ensuring the safety of ALL road users, including those bikers!! to let them carry on that behaviour would be negligent to say the least. I'm glad they were taken off the road that day!
To ride a bike like that however experienced is suicidal, and yes maybe my post was based on 'what if's' ....your point being??? that is the point, they put other road users at risk with the way they were riding. They had no respect, thats what I have a problem with.
Yes I probably have exceeded the speed limit on my bike on accasion, I won't deny it, thats not saying its right to do that though, its not, and I see the risks in doing so, what I don't do is power slide or wheelie when there are other riders in close proximity to me or cars full of families!!!, if you are saying thats ok to do because they obviously 'had control' (???!!) then I am surprised at someone with your experience and knowledge..
Like I said, I've seen the consequences of the inconsiderate, selfish actions of twats like were on that programme last night and believe me, its not pleasant
