If I do all that and they still try to kill me by being on their mobile whilst driving....then can I scream at them whilst saluting. please?There was a time in my riding life where I would have reacted like you Yromulus. At the risk of coming across as patronising, I like to think that I'm older and wiser now. Before every time I hop on the bike I mentally rehearse a little mantra to myself that the only thing that matters is to have a good time AND to refrain from trying to educate or reprimand ANY other person out in traffic. My sole mission is just to stay out of their way, proactively read the traffic, avoid blind spots blah, blah - you know what I mean. Yes, I know 95% of them are morons that got their licence in a Captain Crunch cereal box, but life is just too short and precious to let the bastards grind you down. Even if your hand gesture DID ring a bell with him (overwhelmingly likely it DIDN'T!) there are just too many others like him out there and raising the standards of conduct and driving skills of the general population cannot be done while riding a bike with a helmet on, DCT or not;-)
We're the same age then, and I hope I didn't come across as a ****. Waving is all good!! I'm loving the DCT as well - 1500 k's on it now and the left fingers have settled down. Just got the knobbies on and life is GOOD! Cheers!!You make a fair point - and I actually agree with a lot of it. I'm 54 so I'm not a spring chicken myself and generally I'm fairly laid back.
Scream to your hearts content - don't try this on though, OK?:wink2:If I do all that and they still try to kill me by being on their mobile whilst driving....then can I scream at them whilst saluting. please?
