Hi newbie here, but looking at some of the names, it could be that some of you were on the old LB site.

I'm a born and bred Londoner, and looking to become part of the Unity family.

Hi Allan

Welcome to the forum and the group. Its a complete coincidence but with another hat on I was staying in Bideford on Friday and Saturday just gone, it was a tour organised by the Bellringing Motorcyclists and we had a fantastic time. You certainly live in a beautiful area and lovely town!

Back to the USRs and I hope to meet you soon at a future event. Currently most of what we do is based around the London/SE area but we are slowly spreading further west and who knows, may start to get some more events in the South West as numbers grow in this area.

Thanks for letting me join your group.
My name is Sid Collyer / Dobin. I have been trying to meet up with you all from August last year but things got busy. 
I became an IAM Observer for TVAM and the meeting dates have just clashed each time.
It will be great to finally meet you all at Kempton Park this Sunday.

This is why I have separate amber light not connected to my indicators, this way i am able to give a clear indication when I'm turning, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it

I am interested to know what the USR committee thoughts are on using hazard warning lights while riding, as i have noticed more and more USR's are doing this, The highway code is very straightforward with it's information that they are not allowed to be used on moving vehicle other than a very short period on motorways to warn other vehicles,The Highway Code says:
“Hazard warning lights. These may be used when your vehicle is stationary, to warn that it is temporarily obstructing traffic. Never use them as an excuse for dangerous or illegal parking. You MUST NOT use hazard warning lights while driving or being towed unless you are on a motorway or unrestricted dual carriageway and you need to warn drivers behind you of a hazard or obstruction ahead. Only use them for long enough to ensure that your warning has been observed.”
[/color][/size]I put the above as a comment on face book, as there were members using the hazard lights while riding (4 way indicators)  i was not [/color][/size]referring[/color][/size] to the bikes with orange lights fitted [/size]additionally for warning of a hazard.[/font][/color]The only reason i asked the question was a mate of mine (Hampshire traffic policeman) was with me while watching the [/font]video's and he commented about this being [/font]illegal to do so. I did know this and would not use mine while riding as it could cause an issue if another road user only saw one of the indicators, and thought i was turning.[/font][/color]I did not mean to cause a stir with this subject but just thought i should check the committee's [/font]guidance on this issue.[/font][/color]
