    With bike riding like that you wonder why car drivers get annoyed with bikers!

    Some of that was quite frankly shocking, overtaking on bends, roundabouts, getting REALLY close to some cars, underatking.........the list goes on.
    I am reasonably tolerant of motor bikes being a cyclist, but boy oh boy.

    Me thinks you need to go and get some proper lessons again.

    In a word...........disgraceful!

    And what is worse, you don't that you are doing anything wrong>

    (Now lets sit back and wait for more Mattx arrogance!)

    He did it show off the camera.
    Well OK I must admit it is a pretty good quality video for the cost of the camera...

    This makes interesting reading BTW... In-Gear Motorcycle Training Bristol - The Truth About Filtering on a Motorcycle 1

    @mattx - I am absolutely appalled at your biking skills. 15 minutes of video and not a single wheelie or ramp jump! You should be ashamed.

    i dont feel its extreme. as i already pointed out i wasn't directly comparing it, i was saying the fact that despite the quality of the camera, the actions being shown were unsafe/illegal.

    The plus side of the video is though, all you people upset with @mattx have seen where he parks his bike, so you can go and 'pay him a visit'.

    Don't worry, I actually quite enjoyed the video. People complain about your riding but nobody has yet mentioned that you had various bits of bad driving to manouvre on route, like when that little spam tin pulled out straight into the right hand lane.

    .....everyday we have to put up with drivers like that - if there is one skill you get from being a biker it's being able to read the road ahead - sometimes much more than your usual run of the mill driver too.

    Fun to watch, been wanting to take up riding myself as I rarely take passengers and a car seems a waste. Some daring mvoes you have in that video.

    What and that never happens in a car?

    It's happened to me numerous times...the difference is I didn't compound their mistake by immediately undertaking them...a driver like that is quite likely to panic and veer back to the correct lane...

    As I said being able to read the road ahead I had a feeling the car was going to pull out in front of me so already knew in the back of me head if it did then at the speed I was doing [ 40 ] it would be easier to undertake [ knowing already there was nothing behind me ] - than slam my brakes on. The driver of the car didn't really give a toss about me as they had NOT SEEN ME TO START WITH and would only start to panic if they happened to feel the bike strike the back of their car. As they were not paying attention to start with [ pulling out without looking correctly first ] then I doubt they would even notice a bike raming into the back of them.

    ...but this sixth sense that you seem to think is unique to you didn't mean that you eased off the throttle early to avoid the possibility of hitting the car that you already knew was going to pull out?

    It has nothing to do with my sixth sense - I'm a jedi so therefore have the power of the force.
