i had a moped (de restricted) on 'L' plates for 3 years and now ive done my license and got myself a bandit 600 ive noticed a massive difference in how im treated on the road, not only by car drivers but bikers aswell!
on the moped u get NO respect what so ever from other road users you get pushed about, overtaken, cut up all the time and near enough EVERY car thats at a junction pulls out on you! Whereas on the bandit ive had none of this.
If i sat at 30 in a 30 limit on the moped id be getting people overtaking me beeping horns at me flashing me sitting right up behind me. on the bandit i get none of this. road users give me plenty of space, dont try and push me about on the road and generally drive/ride as they should.
Everyone has to start somewhere and i bet most of you had mopeds as teenagers! so why is it you give moped riders no respect at all when you have been in their situation yourselves?
