You Ask/You Answer: When is it ok to give other riders advice?

"There is a rider in my area who I see out often with pillions, he is fully kitted out with helmet, gloves, boots and leathers while the pillion only gets a helmet.

Mind your

owon business. Unless he's a complete idiot, he's unlikely to be speeding with his kid on the back.  Probably riding in 30mph limits back to his house, his kid is in no more danger than he would be riding a pushbike on his own.

Of course it's a fake question

Or you could make a suggestion like 'Hey, mate, did you you know Lidl and Aldi are having a cheap bike clothing sale this week? Money could be a problem.

Basically, you need to be fully confident that you know what you are talking about.

the question is..

"when is it ok to give others riders advice?"

When it saves a life or when it doesnt endanger one. Worst the guy can do is tell you to bugger off, then youre conscience is clear. my opinion

whats with the hating bertieboy. each tohis own.
