How about pig bloody ignorant horse riders that show no consideration for others.
I have lost count how many times I had slowed down to a slow walking pace well back from a horse and rider on a country road only for the rider to plod along in the middle of the road and continue to ride past any number of field gates and safe passing places, knowing full well I'm waiting to pass.
If you do eventually get fed up and attempt to pass as quietly as possible, they usually come out with a load of self righteous crap and tell me that I should not be riding a racing motorcycle on the road. It's a road legal bike you XXXX and how would you like me to just blast past and spook the horse you stuck up prick. Bollox next time I won't bother to slow down for you.
I was stopped on a local byway to allow some fat bint on a plodder to go by. She stopped and proceeded to lecture me on the fact that I was not supposed to be riding there and was reporting me to the police as my bike was obviously a racing machine.
I would not mind it happening occasionally but around here it happens all the bloody time. Why do these people get onto a nag a think that either I can't ride a horse or that they have special rights to obstruct and abuse people. It's not as if they even get their facts right. But no matter, They are horse owners.
Now I give them one chance to do the right thing once the know I'm there. After that, sod them, I'll do as I bloody well please. If the horse spooks and chucks them off, tough. I do give a warning blip on the throttle or beep the horn from way back before passing, loud enough to be clearly heard.
Also why the hell are inexperienced riders allowed on public roads and byways. I've see horses do the dumbest things and riders completely unable to control their mounts.
It's bloody lethal to other road users, not just the rider. I am a novice and would not consider going on the road, even accompanied by an experienced rider.
Sorry to rant. I do like horses and have a close relative with stables, paddocks and ménage. It's the bloody ignorance and arrogance I hate.
