I can't think of any other way to phrase it. I really do feel like I've been the victim of something unjust. Theft, essentially.
On my way back from renewing my CBT ready for big bike test, and having been complimented on "flawless riding" from the instructor, I was in South London heading back Central, when a copper told me to pull in to the next road. I did.
He pointed out that my chain was loose. I thought, what a nice friendly fellow motorcycle enthusiast to point that out for me. It wasn't that slack in my opinion, but I told him I'd tighten it when I got home, and thanks for pointing it out.
But, no, he'd stopped me to issued a £60 fine, 3 points, and revoked my MOT with immediate effect so I had to wait over two hours for a tow truck (told me I'd be arrested if I tried riding it), and missed a massively important meeting.
The MOT on the bike is not even two months old, and it's otherwise pristine because I look after it.
I must have been cocky, or done something else? Nope. He said my riding was absolutely fine, it was all down to the chain.
So now I'm not going to be able to do my test next week because I have to send my licence off.
Really, what's the point when you can just be done at random. I'm not a qualified MOT tester. The chain looked fine to me (I do check it). What else could I have done but get the thing MOT'd before every ride?
Maybe this biking lark ain't for me. I'm so upset by this.
