Metropolitan Polite motorbikers

I overtook a guy out on a white Pan Europpean tonight, with one of those fucking ludicrous Tabards on it, that say "POLITE" on the back... And he had what appeared to be police stickers on the fairings, which I think said "Metropolitan Polite" where the force name would be. He also had high vis blue & yellow stripes on the back of his panniers. He was doing about 55mph on the M66 and had an enormous amount of cars crawling along behind him.

Who do these dicks think they are?! I cant believe that by changing one letter that people get away with impersonating a police officer.

I see a fair few of those Tabards.... Whyyyyy??!!!!!

I like to be charitable and think that it's someone making a decent living by removing cash from people too stupid to look after it :whistle:

If I could make a living selling those tabards to idiots I'd be laughing all the way to the bank but I'd sooner be seen smeared across the front of a bus than wear one myself.

Hmm, I've just been planing a bike trip to Britain next year - I think I might just change my mind!

I can't find the article but this twat was in MCN a couple of years back as he chases down riders he deems are riding too fast and gives them a naughty boy talk then runs to police to tell them all about it..... I bet the police where he lives really love him turning up :whistle:
