And as far as this " if you come in a car your not a biker " bollocks, get a fukin life and get over yourselfs, half the people on here drive a car and unfortunatly cant ride there bikes all the time. FFs what comes next, if you havnt got tattoo's ? if you dont like the music ? If someones bike dont meet your so called expectations of a biker does that exclude them too ??


Anyway back to the original post --

What a twt in the landrover, he deserves a good telling off, probably has no tattoo's, likes hiphop and rides a bmw

I maybe a bit biast here coz Gal is my mate, but I agree with everything this guy says.............


Except the bit aboout trikes..........

But that's a party - by invite. A rally is open to the public to buy tickets. The reason we enjoy rallies is that they are run by and for people with similar tastes and outlooks to ourselves. If we don't have some sort of gatekeeping, then the ultimate end result is that we end up avoiding rallies, because they've been overrun by people who do not share our outlook. And because we aren't there, the rally will lose it's appeal, and die.

Someone turns up in a car, who is known to be a biker is not the same as total strnager turning up in a car and claiming to be a biker.

I resigned from the BMF the year they allowed the cars and caravans into the Memba rally before they allowed the bikes and trikes in.

And that land-rover driver should have had his scrotum tied to his tow ball and............................

Quite simply, I'll take my family to a rally in the car so they can enjoy the 'biker lifestyle' as well. And i know the kids will be safer at a rally than at some caravan park.
Sorry can't agree with you or KKM. It is probably impractical to take little ones on a trike, but when I had mine I got an outfit - and discovered a whole new side to biking. I had gone to a few rallies on my own on the solo but we decided seeing as it was both our enjoyment for the weekend (rallying) then a sidecar outfit was the answer. And it wasn't expensive - bought for 1600, sold for 2100 (I had done loads of work on it though). We went all over in the time we had it, including Belgium for a 4 day rally with both kids when little one was 5 months old. It can be done - anything rather than turn up in a car.

bit impractical when i goto sainsburys though...as i said, when i take the kids to a rally, i am a day visitor, i do not take the kids overnight, infact i am normally there for a couple of hours........so really what people should say is, IF YOU COME IN A CAR, EVEN IF YOUR A BIKER AND YOU WANT TO BRING YOUR FAMILY, DONT, YOUR NOT WELCOME.......will that include people who walk in from the street and as i have already said, will people start looking at whether or not you have a bike licence as to whether you can go to a rally or not, even if its for a hour or so..... i can see that being popular.....

Back to my point then.

A bike rally is literally a meeting of bikes yeah? So why should it be an event you can, or should even want to, take your family to?

Are there not enough bike-related events that they are welcome at that an actual rally could remain sacrosanct?

One of our locals drives his car to the Oasis Cafe in Abergavenny on bike days, takes a bike jacket out of the boot and makes his way to the cafe through all the bikers, he has never ridden a bike in his life...I was in the cafe last sunday and I looked up to see him heading my way..next time I looked he had vanished...probably didn't want to be seen near me...

I also have a lady who cannot ride due to past injuries and two grandaughters who love to rally. These are the future of biking and to stop them coming is to cut our own throats. My son is on 'L' plates so can't carry one. I used my car to take the girls to rally, then went home to get the bike. Did the same in reverse, so car wasn't left on site. Why severely disabled? why not badly or just plain disabled. I couldn't ride for four years after my accident but wasn't disabled, just in constant and severe pain from nerve damage. I now ride again but stayed on the 'scene' by using the car to rally. Don't judge peeps till you have walked (or limped) a mile in their shoes. The guy in the 4X4 was just a tosser.........

Ok, Been a disabled rider and car driver, I understand all about the car thing at rallies and how some people appear to be pretend bikers, etc.. More importantly! Dose anyone know if the 4x4 wanker coughed any cash for the damage to the bike.. Would the lad or lasses insurance be null an' void because it happened on private land, etc..

I think the 4x4 driver should be stapled by his cock to the highest branch of a very, very tall tree..

Why? I'd rather see sidecars at rallies than cars. At least they've ridden a bike there!

There are some valid reasons for turning up in a car but, as Grav said, some people seem to use them as a reason not to ride a bike there. One excuse I've heard time and again is "I can't afford to get my bike on the road" and they've come in a car that is a few years old. Why don't you buy an old wreck and put the extra money into buying a newer bike or parts for the one you have? Are you a biker or a wannabe? As for the excuse that you're bringing your kids, buy a sidecar and take them in that. They are then seeing what it's like to travel on a bike and not in the sterile atmosphere of a car.

Confession time. I have turned to three rallies in my car (a Land Rover). The first one because it was my club organising the rally and they needed my Landy to transport stuff across a muddy field. The second because my bike was stolen two days before the rally and the third because I was transporting my friend who had a broken leg from being knocked off his bike. All valid reasons in my eyes. Not stupid reasons like "oh, it's raining. Let's go in the car" or "it's miles away, let's go in the car".
