I’m already getting the advice of another solicitor, but I would like a second opinion. My current solicitors tell me I don’t have a case, but I think I do.

I was knocked off my motorcycle by a driver who is a well known local scrote. I personally believe he’s a drug dealer, I don’t think he’s passed his driving test, and I’ll be amazed if he had insurance. The police knew him by name when they showed up at the scene and asked him […]

I was quite badly injured after a pillion ride from this bloke I don’t know particularly well. He showed up with a new Aprilia 125 outside a pub and offered me a lift into town.

I went out for my traditional Easter Sunday bike ride this year, which is always the first day that my bike comes out in the New Year. I always have my bike properly serviced before this date, and it’s properly laid up for the winter.

My bike was bumped from behind while waiting at traffic lights, and it was knocked out from underneath me. I wasn’t injured, but there was plastics damage to my bike.

What do you do when you’ve been pulled by the Fuzz? When are you looking at doing porridge and when can you expect a slapped wrist? Worry no more, Superbike’s very own freelance jailbird Bertie Simmonds, goes into the showers, drops the soap and then gets tooled up to find out the answers.

Courting Disaster

Courting Disaster

You’ve been pulled. The copper is glaring at you and you’ve got that sick feeling in your stomach. But fear not. There are always ways and means to turn points into pardons. Sometimes.

Don’t ignore a summons

That’s plain daft. Do ask for expert help. White Dalton are probably the finest firm of biking solicitors in the country and with them on your side you may avoid being bummed by Bubba when you pick up the hairy soap, but as Andrew says, sometimes it can work if you defend yourself: “It can […]

Don’t ride with a dark visor

If he’s pulled you for an illegally smoked visor, the offence is unendorsable, but you can get a fine.

We don’t need to tell you to stick to the 30s and 40s do we? Good.

I was riding my Firestorm back home from a rideout with my mates, just as dusk was falling. I have a smoked visor, with no BS mark on it, but I could see most things. As I came round a bend, I found a grey Fiesta parked half on the pavement, half on the road, […]

I have been pulled by the police for putting my knee down on a local roundabout, which is effectively disused on a Sunday. It is on an industrial estate. The police turned up, blue lights going and pulled me and a couple of my friends over. They warned us that we should expect a summons […]

I was at an informal bike meet when we noticed a guy on a Honda Africa Twin hoisting wheelies. I didn’t pay him particular attention until he lost it and threw his bike into my bike, which in turn knocked my mate’s bike down causing £2,000 damage to my bike and £3,500 to my mate’s.
