Unleaded at record prices, General Election on Thursday - bikers take action
AROUND FOUR hundred motorcyclists took to the M62 at the weekend in a go-slow fuel protest against the soaring cost of petrol and diesel. The cavalcade rode at around 25mph along the motorway, causing miles of tailbacks, in protest at the country's spiralling fuel costs, which have risen to, on average, 120.5p per litre for unleaded fuel. Organisers said Saturday's protest was a chance to show politicians ahead of this Thursday's General Election that fuel duty must be cut.
"The cavalcade rode at around 25mph along the motorway, causing miles of tailbacks"
That will make us popular.
What is this supposed to achieve other than p*ssing all other motorway users off, who are also being shafted by fuel prices?

High fuel prices are here to stay,with over 2 million extra vehicles a year coming on the roads in China, another extra 1 mill in India,plus the growing populations in the rest of the world,more planes flying etc, enjoy the fuel while it lasts. In a few years it will all be gone and we'll be riding electric vehicles charged by wind & nuke power generation.

Maybe time to convert the bike to chip-fat oil like what I run the van on.
