Slightly off topic but I had a tear up with a paramedic at the petrol garage a couple of days ago.

Let’s hear it. I’m laying around dying of a 3 day hangover and could do with the entertainment. Not my fault btw, the hoorah I passed celebrations got a bit out of hand 😬

That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.

Get a grip Keith. I didn't even know there was safety gear when I started riding over 35 years ago and it turned out it was for me, as did many others. Also what about the whole of southern Europe should they give up riding, I suggest you take a trip down there when you get a bit more experience. I also live in South Essex so pop round and I'll show my touring photos.

Anyway flame me if you must but that's my tuppence spent, as arguing on the internet is like the special Olympics. Even if you win you are still a retard :up:
My grip is firm but subtle, thanks :) But now you know of safety gear you say you "rarely ride without leathers these days" so I'm not sure what your point is there. I, like you, agree with personal choice and know we're all different, but we all have responsibilities. When I started riding over 35 years ago I took precautions as it would have broke my parent's heart had I needlessly killed myself. I even went racing as it was safer than riding on the roads. Now I'm older I have my wife and child to consider, and also that I really don't want to die right now, or spend years having skin grafts and all that agony.

I know about sunnier places than the UK and, if you check the mortality figures, you'll realise just how much worse they are in the warmer countries of Europe than the colder ones. This may be down to mileage covered or lack of proper protection but I'm unsure if any detailed study has been made. I'll leave you to savour your photos :)

Btw, how did you do in the Special Olympics?

Owww this is no good for my currently fragile little mind although there’s a good chance I’d be a contender in the internet special olympics without saying much at all... shiver shiver.

A Tank Top ???
Should be flayed alive and strung up from the nearest lamppost for crimes against sartorial elegance.

Let’s hear it. I’m laying around dying of a 3 day hangover and could do with the entertainment. Not my fault btw, the hoorah I passed celebrations got a bit out of hand 😬
Some muggy manchild wanted a race at the lights. He was in his car, i'm on the S1KR. Obviously, i obliterated him. Manchild not happy with being obliterated, decides to sit up my arse in the upcoming traffic. I then filter away and wave to further infuriate manchild.

About 2 miles down the road i pulled into a garage to get some petrol, as i'm trying to insert my card into the pump, i hear an Irish accent: "excuse me, excuse me". I turn around and a paramedic is standing there.

Me: What?

Paramedic: Did i do something to offend you?

Me: you what?

Paramedic: Did i do something to offend you? Because you cut me up back there.

Me: Go away mate. Don't get all bent out of shape because you lost a race.

Paramedic: I'm not, you cut me up, just wanted to see if i upset you.

Me: Listen, f**k OFF. I'm not interested. Get in your car and f**k off.

A lot of back and forth about road rules followed by one more f**k off by me.

PAramedic: Next time i will just knock you off then.

Triggered me at this point. I follow him back to his car that he is now hastily trying to get into. He close his door but doesn't lock it. I open his door.

Me: Knock me off now you ****

PAramedic: Don't touch my property. Let me close my door.

ME: Come on you mug, let's go. What's you paramedic number( lol, don't know why i said that)

Paramedic: I don't have one you knob.

Me: Get out of the car and knock me off now you mug. Come on big man blah blah blah. (He tries to shut his door, my arm is keeping it open, someone woman filling up says she is calling the police. I let him close his door and then boot his car as he drives back the way he came)

Obviously not exact as to what was said but it was all pretty similar. The only thing that was exact was the thing about knocking me off.

What annoyed me about it all he went out of his way to follow me a good few miles just to size me up and see if i would melt under some light confrontation. When it was obvious i wouldn't, he shit his pants and ran back to his car. What an arse.
