To the learners, the novice’s etc...

To the learners, the novice’s and those lacking in confidence...

Remember, you are a road user with the same rights and any other road user.

You might not have the experience, but you have the rights.

Is someone damages your bike (or car), get their details, and get contact details from any witnesses.

On this post :
http://www.aberdeenbikers.co.uk/phpBB3/ ... =1&t=17122
The rider was a learner and young.
I got the feeling that she would have left with out the drivers details if I wasn’t there.
There is no need to pick up the expense for someone else’s error.

I am very sure that most bike riders will stop and assist another biker if they can see they need help.

Or if you need advice/help, phone a friend, or phone your breakdown service (RAC / AA) if you have one.

If getting intimidated, I would phone the police on the non emergency number 08456005700.
You can distance yourself from the offending party by saying someone is ringing you, then call for help.

Not so much as “any port”, but as she was human, female and still warm, so the three main boxes were ticked for me :2up

But she was also attractive, pleasant to speak too and had a motorcycle...all attributes that a situation close to a dream :cheers :boozer :hippy :biggrin2
