    Major Rant :evil: :evil:
    All caravans should be banned of the road until late at night (after midnight).
    Out yesterday for a bit of a play with Edski around mid Wales and the coast, first nightmare was an old fart in a mk5 escort travelling at 35 to 40 mph, we couldn't overtake because of the volume of traffic, bloody hard work riding at 35 mph , me been a law abiding citizen well behaved ? ;)
    We did find some cracking roads with fast flowing corners :D :D :D :D .
    I think I am inbadbooks with Eds wife now for keeping him out for so long.
    But still a great day 200 miles later :D :D .
    As you can see still haven't sold the bike,quite a few time waister's have messed me around :(
    Hope everybody has a great weekend and lots of beer CHEERS ;)

    I've given up moaning about how bad drivers are, i've just bought a siren and a flashing blue light instead

    This was seriously bad. It wasn't just the appallingly slow speed, it was the erratic driving - all over the road, couldn't keep a straight line. And that was just Ian :D Wifey has calmed down a bit now. I said I'd be back for 2ish, got back at 5.30. Oops :roll:
  4. Nige and I had a ride across Dartmour. Painfully slow whilst cagers wtached the sheep and ponies wandering around.

    Unfortunately it's the same EVERYWHERE you go. My only advice (and something I try to stick to) Get out early whilst the blue rinse and caravaners are still eating their cereal. Oh and find some roads that have some decent overtake points ;) I know my favourite routes :)

    Totally sympathize though!

    I avoid bank holidays, to many folk, to many cars & caravans, not enough space
    and of course the plod cashing in. :x
    So I stay in have some beer stay safe and live to ride another day :D
  7. I hate crappervans too......and....FOOKING TRACTORS....last week we was coming home from our honeymoon (got married two weeks ago), and this tractor was in front with about 1 1/2 of traffic behind him, would he pull over.....would he fooook, he had plenty of chances to pull up too and let the traffic past, this carried on for at least 10 mile from Long Preston till Kildwick, i was raging big style, the road (a65) has too many double white lines so it was quit hard to get passed, on the straights a few cars got passed, but before you knew it.....another double white line, and too much approaching traffic....
