I wonder how effective these are. How many people who dont think bike will look at this on the back of your car and start thinking bike?

Well it's normally the last think they see before hitting the back of a car.
Some think they have better brakes than cars and follow about 6 foot behind.

If you're referring to the biker then most sports bikes will stop in a far shorter distance than most cars

One of the biggest problem for bikers like me is all the A***eholes on their phones whilst driving. It is plain to see they have little idea what is really going on around them - especially at junctions, roundabouts etc.

Not the ones that have hit my van. You just brake really hard and wait for the Big Bang when they hit the back doors.

Plus it's not the bike that's not braking hard enough, it's the human reaction time not being quick enough to compensate for the distance they travel during that reaction time first

Actually according to the law it isn't because their insurance always pays you for the damage. I just keep getting brand new back doors. Ha ha

No it's a league we run at the depot. I only came second last year. The winner was really quite aggressive, he clips them when they pass.
Look out for 7.5 tonners that have little bike logos under the driver mirror.

Ha ha, that's the ones we cut the bikes out of and put under our mirrors.

I'm sorry but I just don't get it, why should drivers have to keep looking out for these **** bikers who weave in and out of lanes or think they have the right to ride down the middle of the road.

You SHOULD be looking out for ANY hazards - bikers or others and as for riding down the middle of the road, I presume you're referring to bikes filtering between lanes? Well that's perfectly legal and if you are going to switch lanes, then you ought to be looking in your mirror and your blind spots

Think Bike
Think Biker
Think Soap and scrubbing brush.

Anti bikers. Anti cyclists. zzzzzzzzz

There should be stickers - "Biker, think!"

It never fails to astound me - why click into a deal like this to put comments like "I slam on my brakes so they hit me - harharhar"
There are of course some nutters out there on bikes, as there are morons out there in cars, each making their respective group look like idiots.
One thing you can be sure of though, that idiot biker doing 90 through traffic is more likely to kill themselves than anyone else.
That moron on their phone plowing through a junction cause they "didn't see the give way" is more likely to kill someone else.

No, I'm talking about bikes going straight down the middle. In a non existent middle lane, why should i have to look out for them. We all get stuck in traffic but us drivers don't decide to drive down the middle of the road. Furthermore you don't pay anywhere near enough road tax. These stickers should be changed, Think bike, think **** driving down the middle of the road.

​If we don't cause traffic (but actively reduce traffic) then why should we sit in it?
that's like saying cyclist shouldn't filter, it makes no sense. There is space to filter, it's legal, safe if your not an idiot about it (and watch out for other idiots of course!) Would you rather I commute in my car and clog up the roads even more?

As for tax, my 800cc sports tourer that can do 60+ to the gallon costs £80 a year in road tax, but my wife's 1l car costs £20 and does 55mpg at best, of course it does 0mpg if it's stuck in a traffic jam. Which of those two causes more road wear and tear? You want to pay less road tax? Get a more efficient vehicle.

Well get yourself a motorbike then - not only will you have more fun but you will get to your destination a lot quicker and leave the grumpy car drivers stuck in traffic jams moaning about bikers.

Could be subtle think from our Government , bike instead of train , especially down the South .

I think you must be trolling as I can't believe anyone really could have an opinion as dumb as this...

Isn't this for motorbikes rather than pedal bikes?

why? are you saying it doesn't happen?

im gonna grab as many of these as i can to keep in my pocket when i ride... then when some berk inevitably sooner-or-later nearly kills me (i have developed super psychic senses to pre-emptively prepare for such occasions) i can grab out a handful and slap them across the windshield.

i am also amazed at the volume of people that, after staring at me deer-in-headlights style, fully aware they would have caused a potentially fatal accident were it not for my evasive maneuver, go into a secondary panic mode and attempt to drive off as quickly as possible when i then attempt to go and explain what they've done wrong and how to avoid doing it again in future...

​probably need to fill pockets and panniers. I'm amazed at how many car drivers seem to deliberately try to kill filtering bikers

golfer2007

Yeah it happens, there are good and bad bike riders just like there are good and bad car/lorry/bus drivers.
If car drivers were a little more courteous and moved over a little then there is plenty of room for a Bike to slip down the middle without causing offence to anyone...chances are you'll even get a courteous thank you wave back from a Biker if you do.
You need to get past this 'us and them' thing you have going on in your head...most Bikers are car drivers as well you know. You just come across as bitter because they can get through the traffic and you are stuck in it in your superior car.
when a Biker IS riding down the middle between lanes you can bet that his/her concentration level is 100x higher than the car driver sitting in traffic playing with the car stereo / mobile phone etc...oblivious to the world around them.

Bikers are people just like you and just like me, the sticker is just saying spare a thought for another human next time you make that right turn, just because you don't like bikes..don't overlook the fact it's someones son/daughter/husband/wife/child...

As for road tax, bikes cause no traffic jams yet still pay far mor eroad tax than most cars due to the old style taxaion classication of bikes based on engine size alone. Unlike cars CO2 figures aren't used to calculate tax on bikes meaning they invariably pay far more than they should.
