Motorcycle Monthly

The MCM legal column is compiled by managing partner Andrew ‘Chef’ Prendergast and his bike-riding barristers and solicitors at White Dalton Motorcycle Solicitors.

The firm deals with personal injury claims and its sister company, Motor Defence Solicitors, deals with all the motoring offences.

White Dalton lawyers have a vast knowledge of bike law, and they have full bike licences, too. They don’t act for insurance companies or the prosecution.

White Dalton is Britain’s premier specialist motorcycle law practice, and if its professionals don’t know the answer to your question, there probably isn’t one. Don’t rely on the advice from your insurance appointed solicitor, get proper independent advice.

I was on my usual rat-race run out of Rotherham when I got stuck behind a bus, which was stuck behind a truck. Gridlock! I had a sneaky peek around the side and decided to go for a cheeky overtake.

Caught drug driving

29 Aug 2019

I popped round my mates on the way home from work. We have been smoking weed for years, and I admit I had a couple of joints. However, as am used to it, it’s really no problem in my books.

I ride the same route to work everyday on my Yamaha MT09 Tracer. Part of the road involves a fast, sweeping A-road. It’s always puts a grin on my face.

Like loads of bikers nowadays, instead of a sat-nav, I use my smartphone mounted on the handlebars.

Oh deer

Oh deer

11 Apr 2019

I traded in my old bike for a second-hand BMW R1200RT. Since the start of the spring I have put about 5000 miles on it. All was well until I had to yank on the anchors last week as I thought I saw a deer.

Storage calamity

I bought an Africa Twin about six months ago. It was the first new bike I have ever had and to say it was my pride and joy is an understatement.

About three months ago I bought a CBR600RR track bike from a dealer. He told me the bike was fully serviced and track ready.

When I left home the sun was shining so I duly put on my lid with my black tinted visor (race-use only).

I live in London and have had a scooter gang come after me twice to try and nick my Husqvarna 701. Thankfully I managed to outrun them.

Fastest Takeaway

Fastest Takeaway

22 Nov 2018

I make deliveries for the local Chinese takeaway on their moped. I was dispatching sweet and sour chicken with noodles to one of my regulars when I got something sour but not very sweet myself. A ticket from the Old Bill.

I was on my Ducati Scrambler (my first ever new motorbike – I am weeping while I write this) following three chaps who were setting off on a tour around Wales.

30 Aug 2018

As the sun has started shining I wheeled out my GSX-R600 for a weekend blast with the lads. I admit we were speeding but only about 55mph in a 30mph, so not ridiculously fast.

Seized Triple

I recently purchased a ‘pre-owned’ Triumph Speed Triple from a dealer about 2 weeks ago. It had 12 months MOT and had just been serviced.

Daylight robbery!

I ride a Triumph Street Triple as my daily commuter. I have fully comprehensive insurance and therefore I can ride other motorbikes as long as I don’t own them.
