  • Daylight robbery

    28 August 2007 by snp55

    I am a security guard working within the Cambridge city centre. I travel just under thirty miles a day on my GSX-R750 to get to work for my night shift.

He saw me approaching him, where, in the outside lane he was "parked" and anticipated my filter line round his right. With a smile he placed his car diagonally, (I jest not), across my path. I...
