Mystery Chav Biker spotted
Sorry about the quality of the photo, but I wasn't sure if it would come out at all. In the finest tradition of the Loch Ness monster, UFO's and Bigfoot, the dark fuzzy picture taken in the gathering dusk is the only scientific evidence of the mystery chav biker or to give him his latin name, Homo Arrogantus Stupidicus. This elusive species can sometimes be spotted around south bristol. There's little warning of his approach, just the increasing sound of a motorbike engine revved up, and then whoosh! - he's past you. No crash helmet, no lights, riding an off-road bike on the road (illegal since there's no licence plate) and probably no insurance either. He's not confined to the roads as you can see, but pavements and connecting lanes are also his territory.
I wonder if anyone from Bristol University Zoology Department is reading this. I really think we should mount a scientific expedition to study this wonderfully reckless animal. He's a fine upstanding example to the bikers of the future.
