I've been driving a car and riding bikes since the early 80's, and in my opinion, (in general) women are better car drivers than men.
They usually drive more sensibly and courtiously than men, and most (but not all) are better looking than men! But.........
What about riding a motorbike? I don’t know any women who ride, and I would be interested in knowing just how good women are at the 'biking thing'.
And around my way, it seems like all scooter riders are absolute arseholes! Don't get me wrong, up until a couple of months ago I was riding around on a 50cc scooter with all the sports bits on it (then I passed me test!), so I don't have anything against the bikes. It's just that they all seem to do the most stupid manouvures at the worst possible moment!
And as a side note, I recently did a little experiment (being bored).
I would stop my bike at the side of the road and take my crash helmet off and look at the side of the engine to see how many bikes would ride passed before one would stop to give assistance. Amazingly, I did this in 6 different places and the first bike that went past each time either stopped and asked if I was ok, or slowed and held the thumb up enquiringly! Would that happen in your Austin maestro?! I think not…..
That’s enough from me for now. I would be interested to hear who you think are good and bad riders.
