    Why in these times are bikers in the UK treat as second class people. having sent off driving licence to adhere to the law on changing address why then do they remove entitlement to drive due to there computer error and it is left to the individual to repair and prove entitlement before they re-instate again this has happened 3 times now to me and i am sure i am not the only one. Todate this has cost me over ?1000 to sort out and having sat my test twice now think it is about time the people sort this problem by refusing to adhere to there mistakes and take matters into there own hands. I have been a law abidding biker as far as insurance and licence etc. but feel we all are at the mercy of a little computer error that can leave us all out of pocket and feeling as i do. I have been riding now for 20 yrs and have only recently come accross this big divide between the biker and the rest of the other road user, when will it all end suposedly when the whole uk biker fratternity travel to there offices and demonstrate that they cannot get away with such things over and over again. The law seems to punish you swiftly but when others make mistakes it takes a long time to sort out, in a recent survey done by a biker mag it found that at least 4000 of these mistakes have occured and of which 1 has been rectified due to there errors which says alot for this type of problem to others it is fraud to a biker it is tough luck do test again therefore in closeing i can see one rule for everyone else second law for bikers WHY WHY WHY. perhaps this dog can sort them out

    It's not just your vehicle licensing departments, it's everything having to do with your government. The UK government stopped caring about British subjects a long time ago. The mindless droids behind the counter know they won't be held accountable if they tell you to bugger off and fix it yourself.

    Maybe it's time you had a nationwide uprising. Hell, the last time you Brits did that it was what, the 1630's? When you did that you lopped off the head of one of my distance relatives (Lord Strafford) - don't worry, I don't hold a grudge. A few MPs minus their top might get you some well deserved attention.

    (don't take me too serious)
