...I'm through moving over to let cars pass...they can bloody well wait...give them an inch and they'll take you out for good...no more...I'm sitting in the middle of my lane and they can eat my dust
Are you suggesting that there are people out there willing to deliberately drive OVER a cyclist?John Ponting said:Be positive and let them know you won't be pushed around but remember .... there is no point in being dead right.
Where did you dredge that from? If you want to make up comments then at least use your own name not mine. Read what I typed again.domtyler said:Are you suggesting that there are people out there willing to deliberately drive OVER a cyclist?
Maybe, but I think anyone would be unlucky in the extreme to meet a true murdering psychopath like this.
no hysteria from me and no WTF either.domtyler said:You've lost me somewhat JP, you said "there is no point in being dead right" in response the OPs assertion that he was not going to move over for car drivers any more. I asked if you were suggesting if people would deliberately drive over cyclists and you come back with an hysterical tirade. WTF?
You're out to make mischief you naughty little monkey! I know your game.John Ponting said:no hysteria from me and no WTF either.
You asked if I was suggesting that people would deliberately drive over a cyclist. There was no suggestion what so ever in my post that anybody would do anything of the sort. You seem to be using Daily mail tactics to make up a story.
I said there was no point in being dead right and neither said nor suggested anything else.
Dom, no hidden meaning. Just a simple, oft repeated saying from a Met Motorcycle Instructor. Sometimes it's worth giving a little even when you are in the right. Certainly better than being dead. And accidents can happen.domtyler said:You're out to make mischief you naughty little monkey! I know your game.
Come on, tell us what you mean by "there is no point in being dead right".
me too! i think this is the only place a cycle lane comes in handy... on a bend, especially where you come off an island, to stop them coming in to close to the kerb.stevenb said:of late I'm finding motorists getting impatient going around bends and over taking me on the bend......
