....Fat greasy looking wnkers driving Ford STD's that sit on the the back of licence plates at every possible chance while simultaneously texting from a mobile phone and yet doing there up most to block filtering motorbikes from behind (turning 2 lanes into 3 to be sure no one could possibly get passed on purpose)

You sir are a c*nt...

Hoping that this is an isolated case of Fat greasy blah blah blah.
I am a portly chap, whilst the greasy bit, I'm not sure, but I drive a Focus STD.
I don't however sit up the doup of motorcyclists, block filtering bikes etc. sitting too close to anything tends not to agree with the bonny paint on the front of aforementioned C U Next Tuesday chariot.
Being a biker gives me the perspective from both sides. Audi drivers and SV650 riders are equally as bad as each other. Recently witnessed SV650 (red and black) make an absolute fool of himself on Union Street. From forums on Facebook, I hear that he's come a cropper once or twice before. ( unsurprising considering what shocking acts of "biking" was witnessed.
So, don't you really hate it when......... You fall into the category being slated because of a bad egg

Anything would improve my looks.

I was doing about 100 mph (on a private road of course ;) ) when the bugger smacked me right on the nose. My visor disappeared and I never found it. I had two black eyes and was covered in a mixture of pigeon blood and my own from a nose bleed. It was like getting a really hard punch on the hooter.

Luckily the road was a straight one as I had to stop with a helmet full of pigeon guts and virtually no vision.

I hate switch gear in different locations, especially the full beam flash trigger/switch

It is a shame that bike manufacturers put some switches in different locations.

Yesterday when on a wee scenic bimble on the bike, a car turned on to the main road I was on, causing me to quickly reduce speed.
So, in true obedience of the highway code, I intended to let that car driver be aware of other road users (ie me), and I did this by loving thru the menu settings on my Yamaha :???

Now, if I was on the Beemer she would have seen the flashing of my headlights full beam, but on the MT09 I am not so sure that loving between the heated grips menu and the main computer menu did much to let her beware that I could have crashed into her if I adopted her style of observation.
