He doesn't need to explain himself, you are right. Not yet anyway.



I meant freedom of speech for Ronk... not gpz1100

Ain't it great when people bite like this :twisted:


Not that i am a Fun-Police...

but i agree with hooman.

But out of curiosity about shinning your lights into oncoming pedestrians eyes... what sort of personal gains do you receive from that?

This type of entertainment i feel is just bullying people who are peaceful and cop it. Family man and his dog? Mother, with a pram and infant?

Imagine shinning into the eyes of the wrong people? of a bunch of Arab Bikies perhaps ... You'd sure get some gains from that.

but its your life buddy, you know what your doing

That tends to really wind them up :)

don't worry about bikies,they are very nice people.what about all the charity rides they do.
I would not shine my light into someone pushing a pram or a kid,but a guy walking his dog,that would be alright.

I like running red lights, riding really fast on foot paths clipping people especially really old people who fall over, fighting with anyone who abuses me, having ubber bright lights the psp while speeding of course, doing 60 plus in school zones, drinking the beer out of the cans thrown at me.These are just a few things I love to do :) Oh I forgot scratching cars with my cleats.....

I'm am not trolling,I get a lot of great use out of this website.I did not intend on treading on anyone's toes by creating a post like this.I just bought a new light,having previously having crap ones and was at first shocked by padestrians reaction and then I'll admit found their reaction slightly amusing.I did not realise I would be judged so harshly
I apologise to anyone who may taken offence by my actions,and further to this I will dip the beam and make further considerations for padestrians and others whilst riding shared paths.
the post was intended to be a bit of fun and some replies where great,I'm glad some people could see the funny side of it.
I'd say about 4 people got a dose of 1800 whilst on may way to work over 2 days.probably around 430am.
I apologise to those individuals.
I'm sorry bna,can you find it in your hearts to forgive me.

regards

Does it have the same effect if you're a female cyclist blowing the kiss? Or is the anger-factor lost because of the changed gender? I've been thinking about putting this in my repertoire of hand signals.

i have no problem of you flashn the odd stooopid ped about to step out infront of you with their brain holding devices in their ears, they deserve it.

Wouldnt it be boring if we all did exactly the same damn thing.

I'm not sure if the effect will be the same coming from a woman. You'll have to try it but beware it can send the odd bogan troppo.

ive known of some in my old Neighbourhood of Sunny Auburn in Sydney's South West... and i can tell you.... "nice" is not the correct word to describe them... But hey...They might actually be... if you perhaps flash them with your 1800lumen LED! light :lol:

flashing a guy walking his dog is alright?
well remind me never to walk my dog in your neighbourhood because you might blind me...and i might hold my eyes and accidentally release my dogs on you. :wink:

People have been attacked for things far less than that...
I remember an incident in Bankstown Gym... somebody got stabbed in the head/skull.. due to just looking/glancing at someone wrongly.

like i said before champ, those things can get you in trouble if you happen to land in the wrong place at the wrong time... and in your case.. the wrong person.

Aaaand that'll be the end of that before things go from rather unattractive to downright ugly.
