David J Waring

Thank you Carl for injecting a welcome note of optimism into this discussion.

Some 15 or so years ago, when our Government decided to exempt pre 1973 vehicles from road tax (vehicle excise duty), countless people put on their pessimistic heads, thinking that it was the beginning of controlling and curtailing the use of such exempt vehicles. The sooner the current negative views fade, the better, and we await the response of insurers.

Regarding Carl’s comment “Many fatal motorcycle accidents are caused by car drivers who say that they did not see the motorcycle”, I always wear a high visibility bib, or reflective flash, which I would recommend to all bikers, even those with modern machines that have good lights – the bike may be well illuminated at night, but if you come off, following motorists may not see you in the road, only the bike.
Safe riding !
