    I've swiped these from the RoadRider magazine website. They were posted by the editor Peter "The Bear" Theoming (who is a top bloke cos he lovers Coopers ales). My favorite is 3rd from the bottom.

    • Saddlebags can never hold everything you want, but they CAN hold everything you need.
    • Home is where your bike sits still long enough to leave a few drops of oil on the ground.
    • The only good view of a thunderstorm is in your rearview mirror.
    • Bikes don't leak oil, they mark their territory.
    • Never mistake horsepower for staying power.
    • If you don't ride in the rain - you don't ride.
    • A bike on the road is worth two in the shed.
    • Young riders pick a destination and go. . . Old riders pick a direction and go.
    • A good mechanic will let you watch without charging you for it.
    • Sometimes the fastest way to get there is to stop for the night.
    • Winter is Nature's way of telling you to polish your bike.
    • Well-trained reflexes are quicker than luck.
    • The best alarm clock is sunshine on chrome.
    • A friend is someone who'll get out of bed at 2 am to drive his pickup to the middle of nowhere.
    • Never be ashamed to unlearn an old habit
    • Maintenance is as much art as it is science.
    • If you ride like there's no tomorrow - there won't be.
    • Gray-haired riders don't get that way from pure luck
    • No matter what marque you ride, it's all the same wind.
    • Only a Biker knows why a dog sticks his head out of a car window.

    Don't forget you can ride in the bicycle lane for upto 100m if turning left... Except sometimes you might change your mind at the end ;)

    Bicycle lanes are for (slow) bicycle riders. I keep seeing idiots on motorbikes and scooters filter up to the traffic lights on the left of cars, using the bicycle lanes. I expect this'll end in tears for the majority of these fools, going by the way in which this maneuver is usually performed. Car driver's have a very low tolerance for normal filtering by riders. Illegally overtaking them on the left using bicycle lanes will soon see someone deliberately knocked from their bike and police reacting by clamping down on any and all filtering maneuvers, whether performed legally or not. Driving (riding motorised vehicles (which include the new wave of "Eco hippy douches" on powered bicycles)) in bicycle lanes is illegal. Keep doing it and you're simply pushing for that extra Police attention and motorist contempt.
    You can't overtake a vehicle on the left of that vehicle unless the vehicle is turning right or you're travelling in a second lane to the lane occupied by the other vehicle, ie, left lane of a multiple lane road. You can overtake a vehicle whilst travelling in the same lane, provided you overtake that vehicle on it's right side. That means you must keep your wheels to the left of the lane line when filtering between stationary rows of traffic on multiple lane carriageways.

    As I was pointing out however this is actually LEGAL in the regulations, its clearly written last time I checked that ANY vehicle can occupy the bicycle lane if they are turning LEFT with in something like 50-100m at a intersection etc, not that most people are doing it for this reason but once I did it and I was like wow... first time I legally did that :p

    Hadn't noticed Stu, it's not like you to make any statements which might offend anyone......:wink:

    And I reckon that Sundowner's trick is to count to 10 before pressing 'submit reply', something I should try sometimes...:lol3
