Are North West Blood Bikes promoting dangerous riding

Why would an ‘advanced rider’, riding a liveried North West Blood Bike, take a right bend and cross the solid white lines in the central reservation with an oncoming vehicle and then promote their website with such a photograph?

This is both illegal and very dangerous!

Dangerous and illegal riding

 

Highway Code

129
Double white lines where the line nearest you is solid. This means you MUST NOT cross or straddle it unless it is safe and you need to enter adjoining premises or a side road. You may cross the line if necessary, provided the road is clear, to pass a stationary vehicle, or overtake a pedal cycle, horse or road maintenance vehicle, if they are travelling at 10 mph (16 km/h) or less.
Laws RTA 1988 sect 36 & TSRGD regs 10 & 26

NOTE: A ridiculous comment has been sent to the website about this photograph.  The sender did not name himself but is volunteer rider himself.

The comment was

That lovly[sic] pic you found of two livery blood bike riders is infact[sic] legal and safe as they are riding in a staggard[sic] posisition[sic]

I am not here to argue with other members, but please do not send such absurd comments.  Crossing the solid white line is ILLEGAL.  There are some mitigating factors for doing so, but  I can assure you that riding in a ‘staggered position’ is NOT one of them.  I could just imagine being stopped by the plod saying,

excuse me sir, you have just crossed the solid white line which is a traffic offence“, and I respond saying,

oh but officer, I think you will find it is legal as the bike behind me was travelling really close to me but slightly offset…

 

It this comment was from you, and you wish to put your name to it and argue your point openly, please do.

 

For the benefit of ‘Steven Kosak’ who has made a comment below.  I have clearly shown the part of the motorcycle that has ‘straddled‘ the white line.

  1. No wonder they got rid of you. You can’t tell right from wrong or your left from right.

    You have a criminal record get over them asking you to leave. Rather than publish your version of events you need to post ACTUAL proof not what you think constitutes proof. I have noticed that you never post negative replies. Nor do you anonymise comments alleged to be backing you up. Clearly a sad individual who thinks the rules don’t apply to you

    • Mike Dabek, I do not have a criminal record. Have have NO criminal convictions or cautions. It seems you are the sad individual. You have been reported to the police for some of your sick and malicious comments that have been blocked from view.

  2. Aaawww still not prepared to post what people are actually posting? You’re the coward, you hide behind a website Paul Ponting (at least I get your name right I do my research first unlike you who just makes everything up an massively exaggerates minor inaccuracies in to something far more sinister than they are)….. if only you could see that everyone is laughing at you. You have no credibility at all. There are videos and other websites mocking you. You only post one half of a tale and even then you offer no real proof of anything other than actual emails outlining irrefutable facts about you, and then you cry like a baby because nobody takes you seriously. When I say no one I mean no one not the police, the council, or any authorities… that tells everyone you are a serial complainer who has a reputation for being a social looser.

    • Mike Dabek, you have been reported to the police for your actions. Please stop what you are doing. I think you need to eat your words as Lancashire police paid £35k to me for their wrongdoing.

  3. Last time I checked we ride on the left hand side of the road so in this image no one has crossed or straddled a double white line. They are both on the correct side of the road. What are you seeing that I am not? You do realise that the photo was taken from the rear of a vehicle positioned in front of the riders?
