Off-road with no tax?

Off-road with no tax?

10 Apr 2014

I have just bought a DRZ400 with road tyres It hasn’t got an MoT or Tax, but instead of spending money on this I’m thinking of spending it on some knobblies and going ‘off-road’ for some giggles There are loads of local woods, parks and farmland, so I figured as long as I stick to […]

Dodgy eBay buyer

Dodgy eBay buyer

03 Apr 2014

I put my old Yamaha Fazer 1000 up on eBay, and had a chap visit for a look before placing a bid. I let him have a spin around the block, but he clipped an old lady on a zebra crossing. The police were involved, and he’s getting done for careless driving. That’s fair enough […]

Muppet Solicitor

Do I have to stick with my insurer panel appointed solicitor? He is a muppet. Some ‘spoon’ banged into the rear of my bike at a junction.

Road tentacles

I was riding on my old CB750k2, and there were some of those rubber tubes across the road that measure the traffic, attached to a metal box chained to a lamppost.

Foreign Driver Accidents

Foreign Driver Accidents

19 Feb 2014

In my opinion, in recent years there has been a noticeable increase on British roads of foreign cars. I would be grateful if you could give some advice in case I have an accident with a foreign driver. In the event of any kind of accident involving a motorcycle and a foreign vehicle driven on […]

Dog Vs Bike

Dog Vs Bike

12 Feb 2014

I was riding along my local high street when a chihuahua dog (yes, the really small type) called Twinkle jumped out of her owner’s handbag and ran straight out in front of me, causing me to swerve, crash into a massive pile of rubbish outside the local kebab shop and fall off. Not my coolest […]

Not wheelie very good

Not wheelie very good

06 Nov 2013

I have just got back into biking (I used to have a Triumph Tiger 500 back in the 1970s – good times) and bought a new Yamaha Rl on which to head out on rides with my mates. I had only had it for a few weeks when I had an incident.

Mobility stupidity

Mobility stupidity

30 Oct 2013

I was riding my bike down a main road near to where I live. At a junction to my left there was a stationary white van and as I came closer I could see the driver waving his arms about like a mad man. I slowed down thinking there must surely be something wrong.

Testing times

Testing times

09 Oct 2013

I am new to biking and was on my way to the test centre for my full bike test. My instructor was in front and I lost sight of him. However, as we were using radios he told me to exit off the roundabout using the second exit and accelerate up the hill.

Spotty yoof parking

Spotty yoof parking

02 Oct 2013

A few days ago I look my Yamaha R1 to a bike dealer to have some work done. I had asked him to order in a carbon fibre mudguard and dropped the bike off as arranged. I left my bike on the dealer’s forecourt and gave him the keys.

Can’t see the wood for the trees

14 Aug 2013

I was riding home on my R6 one night a couple of weeks ago. I went around a left-hand bend on a country lane when the front end of my bike just let go and I fell off. I slid across the road and ended up in a bush. Thankfully, the oncoming car did not […]

Motorcycle courier caught in the act

Motorcycle courier caught in the act

07 Aug 2013

I am a motorbike courier in London and was in a rush to pick up a package. The traffic was really heavy so I hopped up on the curb, rode about 100 feet past all the traffic and turned left onto the main road. I then got pulled by the police.

Filtering and/or overtaking and claiming for injuries

Filtering and/or overtaking and claiming for injuries

16 Jan 2013

Even though a biker may not be criminally liable for filtering and having a collision, it is a long established legal principle that a biker who is out of the ordinary flow of traffic by overtaking or filtering places themselves at potential risk and therefore has to take extra care. If they do not and […]

Filtering and/or overtaking slow moving or stationary traffic

Filtering and/or overtaking slow moving or stationary traffic

08 Jan 2013

A great advantage of riding a bike is that you can often avoid getting snared in slow moving or stationary traffic with our larger, wider motoring companions by filtering or overtaking. I have been riding bikes on the road since I was 16 years old and have owned many, from my trusty Honda C90 to […]
