What's the chances of getting caught unless you get caught doing 100mph+ on motorway?
True but this has nothing to do with restrictions. The police have access to a database of tax, MOT and insurance details only. Nothing tells them a bike is restricted or unrestricted other than taking the bike off you and dynoing it - and they'll only do that if you look or act suspiciously or stupid.almost all police cars have instant access to vehicle details these days. ...
Unless she was running so hooked your right arm off the handlebars.As for being knocked off by a pedestrian at 3mph, how the hell did you manage that!? - 3mph is slower than walking pace so if anyone walked in to you you'd just put your foot down and balance the bike. ...
Nope. Both feet on the floor, me standing up, bike going to the floor with only one of my hands on the bars, in gear so nicks the rear wingSounds more like you were going too fast and not thinking about the back of a bus (which is where all pedestrians like to jump out from!). Lost control trying to avoid said pedestrian, came off the bike and it carried on into a car. ...
On a dark night, in rain, in standing traffic, you are probably right. It was my fault. But what's your point?Now that would happen to anyone not using the hazard perception training given to initally get a bike licence...
So one minute you say they 'stepped from behind a bus' then the next minute they're 'running' - maybe you should get your story right before posting and then changing it to suit your reply!Unless she was running so hooked your right arm off the handlebars.
Wrong, this rider simply asked the forum what the risks are riding unrestricted on a restricted licence, he never indicated he was actually going to do it. Of course we all make mistakes but in your example (unless you change the story again!) it wasn't even your fault therefore no one would be asking if your bike was restricted or not!This new rider is asking forum members if he should ride uninsured. I gave an example of where I made a mistake, to indicate how essential it is not to succumb to that temptation.
Are you, beanfeast, trying to suggest he should gamble that he'll never make a mistake? That only tits like me need insurance? That's not what I thought this forum was about.
Ride safe everyone.
there you go see, insurance assessors know all the ins and outs and will do everything they can not to pay out, wouldnt you?Any accident involving a restricted licence holder and our company insurers will request the bike is tested to ensure it is indeed restricted, if not they counter claim and using the video from the buses usually win costs of £5000+
Any other awards. 6 points on licence under 2 years riding Retest.
