I wonder why it was critical to mention the brand of bike.

Nice riding shoes I wonder if they make an off road version.

I think the BBQ man from last year had more going for him than this bloke.

i like this in the comments of that link:

"I saw an even worse one last week...saw a motorcyclist going down Old Windsor Road with both his arms crossed..not just for a short time either...almost looked like he was reclining in a chair. Still got no idea how he managed to keep control of the bike & keep it in a straight line with no hands????"

No doubt never ridden a motorcycle. No harm in doing this on a quiet straight road

Whilst this incident seems grossly stupid, there are implications to found in the followup. That shortcut over the median strip, that lane splitting on the way to work. Are they all fodder for desk bound prosecutors receiving a stream of phone images from concerned citizens?

And not one comment on this direct result of multiculturalism but many can identify the style of shoe.
Funny how they all care about what will happen when he crashes with no socks.

What kind of socks do they want us to wear ?

The comments tell us the IQ of readership
