Default Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Mine is my lack of confidence on my Tiger.


I went out for a play into Yorkshire, headed North and felt like a fawn trying to balance on ice for the very first time. No flow, no finesse, no glide.


Bike's worth about £5000 I reckon. Hmmm, Canon EOS 5 MKIII?

Pedestrian walking along so engrossed in their phone that they don't notice that they have walked into a road, then have the gall to give you abuse for not looking where you were driving. If I wasn't looking I wouldn't have seen that you weren't paying attention and slowed down, I would have run you over and not stopped and beeped my horn to alert you to my presence!

You mean there isn't a app they can put on their phone to tell them when you are coming...? How inconsiderate!
