In a recent speech, the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, announced that Transport for London are discussing expanding the ULEZ (Ultra Low Emission Zone) to cover the whole of Greater London from 2023. Will the next step be to introduce similar schemes in all the towns and cities across... Read more
World’s best EV charging network will be in the UK… So what?
Transport Minister Trudy Harrison reckons the UK government is going to help create “one of the best EV charging networks in the world” so that we can all get electric cars and bikes and help save the planet. There are still quite a few issues when it comes to... Read more
MOT Tested and Dangerous
When searching for a ‘new’ second-hand bike to buy, I, like most people, would always favour the bike with a current MOT certificate. As well as suggesting a level of mechanical soundness, it means you don’t have to mess around taking the bike to an MOT station to get... Read more
Is the Government trying to ban bikes from green lanes?
The government have started a consultation process which could see an end to motorcycles being allowed to use green lanes. In early 2018, the government asked the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to do a review into whether the management of National Parks and Areas of Outstanding... Read more
Daylight robber given 9 years after stealing the same KTM… twice.
Not content with nicking a new KTM once, daylight robber and utter scally from Kent, has another go at the same bike after being released by police. When Jacob Winnett (yes I imagine he did get bullied at school for that name – see ‘winnit’ on Urban Dictionary) was... Read more
The NIMBY lot are at it again.

The shocking state of UK roads
Lots of people get really upset about the state of the roads in the UK. For the amount of road tax we all pay, they should be pristine, shouldn’t they? But they’re not. Potholes continue to grow and multiply, drains remain blocked causing vast swathes of highway to disappear... Read more
Why antisocial behaviour is our friend in 2022.
Since 1998 the authorities have been handing out ASBOs (Antisocial Behaviour Orders) to scallies and scumbags across the UK. I think they call them ‘Civil Injunctions’ now but essentially it’s the same thing; a punishment for ill behaviour. And whilst I’m sure no member of the vast 44Teeth community... Read more
Why (some) people hate motorcyclists.
Have you ever wondered why we motorcyclists seemed to be sneered upon, by all the other motorists on the road? Despite paying our fair share of road tax, we’re hated almost as much as cyclists, and I’ve often wondered why. So I’ve had a really good think about it,... Read more
