Just got home from work, was listening to LBC on the radio on the way back. In an ad break they played an advert asking how mny times we've read a page in a book only to have to re-read it because of not paying full attention, or looked at our watch and had to look again because we'd not taken in what time it was telling. It then asks about looking left and right at a junction before pulling out and....
It ends by telling us to look out properly for Bikers, not just a quick glance.
Think Bike, it reminds us. Fair point.
But how come this ad and the ones on telly, and the ones on billboards are all aimed at car drivers telling us to look out for bikers?
What about reminding bikers not to sit in car blindspots?
What about reminding them to excercise extreme caution when filtering through traffic?
What about reminding them not to drive at Mach 2.0 down country lanes where they may come across slow moving traffic around any corner?
What about a simple reminder to these nut jobs that regardless of how good riding their super bas***d nutter bike makes them feel, they're NOT invincible
I apologise to the majority of sensible bikers out there who do none of the above, but it does seem that the biking fraternity has a disproportionate number of imbeciles who give them all a bad name
OK, rant over. Now please, enjoy your motorbikes, but don't kill yourself on them.
