    Im kidding, but some of the cars moved a little more out of our way whenever the next biker passed them (hoping for another wave of appreciation I assume haha). Some only moved after I had passed and others were completely out of the way by the time it was my turn.

    I must admit I had a bit of a chuckle when when they were suddenly halted by the construction barrier.

    Last time I inquired, TB doesn't sell them any more. Had a construction company hi-vis on though.

    Ask the guys behind me this morning I look like Noddy in traffic.
    I often speak to cagers to heard their point of view. A lot of them gets very upset if they make way and you don't thank them. A lot of the cagers keep to the side and don't "move over" so I rather thank everyone than skip someone...

    Due to my busy weekend schedule, I missed this one. I will keep my eyes open for the next one. It's next monday, right? The 16th?

    Riding faster than everyone else only guarantees you'll ride alone.

    Also, can we get a topless pillion on the last bike to hand out flyers?

    Road Runner….if I may…. I think this is the way Think Bike awareness should be done….by getting your buddies like you do to lane split in a convoy and at the same time to have banners on the bridge….so people see the banners but at the same time this convoy of bikers come past and they actually don’t’ just see the banner but that actual “thing”. Great initiative.
    I don't have an attitude I have a personality you can't handle.....
