I am just bewildered by the huge amount of Motorcycles tearing all over the Island in groups. Unless Dave Deaths has sold out of its complete stock I have to think that we have groups of Motorcyclists from over the water, in which case where are they all staying when everywhere is supposed to be closed for a few more weeks?

They ride too fast.
I am certain people do not understand that there is a speed limit.

Over the water…. Haven’t heard that for a while along with Dayn Kays, Up Newport and Ayt Freshwawder.
If you recall, Small lived over the water.
He was a bad man unlike Woodford who was an honest newspaper seller.

Why do they have to off comeu from the mainland a lot of bikers/scooterists do not ride in winter months if they have another mode of transport but the nice weather we all like to get our scooters /Harley-Davidson/etc etc out and dust of the cobwebs . Personally I stick to all the speed limits and yet cars still overtake me so if I’m going at the correct speed how fast must the idiot in the car be going so who cause the crash !!!
