It's coming. If people won't do the right think by choice, and the scenes from Italy make it pretty damned obvious that we need to then there needs to action to remove the choice and make it mandatory. I suspect the government is concerned about rioting such as in Tottenham a few years ago or mass demo's like XR by all the retards. BTW speaking of retards St. Greta has been very quiet lately?

f**k

I am presuming the government may need the legislation before they can enforce it, although some are arguing over the depth of what is being asked for and the length of time they will last ffs like Boris is going to turn into Hitler, he even had the wrong colour hair.

I can see bikes been banned unless your a key worker and it's your only transport.

I'm off to get a job at timpsons, either that or domino's 😁

It was the same at Abergavenny yesterday. People were keeping their distance for the most part but not everyone and definitely not when it came to queuing at the café where it all went out the window. As much as I feel for the business owners I don't think cafés etc should be open even for takeaway. Would you trust a burger van operator facing maybe months of no income to shut his van if he got a cough? I wouldn't.

We decided it would be safer to go somewhere a little less busy. The Peregrine falcons dive bombing their prey provided the entertainment.

That's what I saw on Saturday but not being completely stupid I didn't stop. Couldn't believe my eyes to be honest.

I just avoided all the usual biker haunts because I had an idea they would all be there like headless chickens and also the power ranger brigade would be out in force, I just headed to the lonely hills.

I went out on Monday 23rd for a solo ride. I took a bottle of water and something to eat. I saw at least 3 groups of 6 or more bikers!
I stopped at the top of the Lincolnshire Wolds to eat and drink in a lay-by. A car pulled in just as I was taking a photo of the bike. I walked back to my bike and out the water bottle back in my top box. When I turned around an old gentleman had started to approach me and offered to take a photo of me on the bike.
I stepped back sharpish and politely declined.
Wtf aren’t people thinking? I thought. I put my lid on and f**k ed off home.
