Or we could just leave it as is and be happy that we have the same or even lower fatality rates compared to other developed countries.

Not even anywhere near the most dangerous in the EU and if you take Europe as a whole we are far safer than most.

But they can't catch bikes unless you're going away from rear of the van, but by that time you can slow down.

Is that actually true?

Reason I ask is that I had that on the Rock Road in Dublin a few days back. I'd never seen a camera van there before. If he got me coming towards him, I'm a gonner. If he could only get me after I'd passed him, I'm totally innocent.

It'll only get you if you're riding away from the rear of the van, not the front. There is a camera front facing but its CCTV for crew protection only.

Unless you have a number plate on the front of your bike. That big ass camera only fits in the back.

I hate the cvnts, and I've cut down on wheelies lol

I was leaving work at the same time as two lads on the work bikes were leaving, they pulled in behind me thinking I'd wheelie, I didn't. I was a little bit proud of myself lol

The big GS wheelies handy enough (most bikes do) and comes down nice and easy. Worst bike I had for wheelies was my Z1000, you were taking your life into your hands if you tried a first gear wheelie on it (Jap IL4 litre bikes should never need first gear for wheelies), and if you came down too hard it was like getting a kick in the nuts, and I'm not even joking!. I'd a few painful one's

The joys of light V twins... 3rd gear wheelies.
