Watch out for Scooters

Watch out for Scooters

Postby RobM » Wed May 23, 2012 10:50 am

Ride in this morning was interrupted when I caught up to a motorbike/scooter. Im pretty sure these arent allowed on the bikepath (i know some e-bikes are). :roll:
It was definately fuel powered and had a licence plate (which i cant remember now). Driver had full motorbike helmet on and balaclava.

Location: Bikepath next to Jacinda St, Sunnybank

Anyways...i rang my bell which predictably did nothing....but they pulled off on one of the exits and i went on my merry way.

Wouldve been fun to draft him/her down the V1 bikeway tho... :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

urrgh. Spare us. :x

Overhyped, over-commercialised display of mental pygmies running into each other. Run it up the middle for 5 tackles and then kick. Boring.

Beside which side or which code has the biggest ______ debate.

I say if you see the bugger again on the path get in contact with the council and/or police. Rude buggers need to be told where they should be by the law not by us.
