Rant...... Was driving home in my car today along a main road with a speed limit of 50 mph.. I was following other traffic, a few cars not much and doing anything between 40 and 50 mph on straights and bends ok. For about 5 miles I was followed by a muppet on a motorbike.
He rode up to the back of me and for that five miles stayed between 30 and 10 ft from my rear end. I myself gave good distance to the vehicle in front of between 120 and 180 ft. one lamp [ 120ft]post between or when going faster I slowed a little to give 2 lamp posts apart. [ 180ft ] At times I would be maybe 200ft behind the vehicle in front.
The biker had no idea of what he was doing to himself or the danger he was putting himself into being so close to the rear of my car. He was I suppose or presumed to be in the overtake position [ which is a dangerous position and shouldn't be taught anyway] but never attempted an overtake and never pulled back to a follow on position.
What a NUMPTY.

Had a ride over to Wakefield today to pay for new toy (z1000st) about 38 miles. Had my first experience of the"smart"motorway
and what pain it was. matrix flashing incident at j31. smart matrix kick in - lane 4 CLOSED use hard shoulder and lanes 1,2,3 speeds showing 60-50-40-60 on matrix all in less than a mile, speed marking strips on motorway just after matrix gantries and more cameras than NIKON can shift in a year. All that could be seen were brake lights on and off and cars infront switching lanes . Good job traffic was light.
