I have been known to beat up cars and vans, Have not gone to jail yet over that.
I did try and make sure I did this before the cell phone age though.
So not sure how well this will work out for others.

I am on the other side of the country in the South West but I have been giving this some thought, I worked in the dockyard for many years, the bloke spoke Oxbridge and had a regulation hair cut and beard so I know what his job is, I strongly believe in karma so while I am talking to the local bike community I will let it go as I would hate for anyone to think I had anything to do with what happens to this guy when karma strikes.
