Thumbs up Pig Baiting

This is an artical from PB a few months back, i thought it was so funny i took the ime to type it out - Enjoy!

Bikes. “Pig Baiting” (PB, May 1997) received some massive criticism from the Sam Brownie wearing bike clan but huge respect from young easily inspired bikers like myself (well I was then!). For those of you who are still in your 20’s “Pig Baiting” was a fly on the wall article about a group of lads armed with ZZR1100 (then the God of the road), a plank of wood and a transit van. The idea of the game was to wind a few police up with silly antics on the bike, disappear for a fast game of cat and mouse on our wonderful highways with Plod in tow, and then disappear into the back of the van using brute force and a plank of wood, as if vanishing into thin air.

As a youngster I was amazed and captivated by this, the adrenalin, rush, the thrill of the chase, the speed and the fear. However, at the time I couldn’t consider playing the game; not only could I not ride for toffee, I had a GPZ550. And I didn’t have any mates! But times have changed………….. I have a fast bike, riding experience under my belt, a mortgage, a good job, a wife and 2 kids. I still want the thrill of the game but as I got older the thought of loosing my licence, loosing my job, spending time inside and probably death made “Pig baiting” and unrealistic venture.

That’s when I came up with “Monkey Baiting”, The same game but with the 4th emergency service. All you need is a bike, a years breakdown cover and your away – no van, no plank and more importantly……. no mates.

Plant yourself on the hard shoulder of the nearest motorway (M2 between Faversham and Canterbury is good), call the breakdown company and wait. The suspense and tension rises as the minutes tick on, minutes turn to hours, then you see it; flashing lights. Jump on your bike and slowly creep away, not too fast or you’ll loose them! And you’re off, the chase is on! You won’t believe it but these guys hunt you down like your Red October – Flashing lights, the works. And at a fairly hefty pace – I’ve had a ton out of a green flag. Consider it no loss of licence, no impending death but loads of laughs!!!!!!!

The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
