Bikers' cry


Added 05 November 2012


Barbados Motorcycle Club president Raymond Belgrave thinks more respect is due to bikers on the road. “Most drivers have no respect for bikers, and this is something I see  all the time,” he said. Belgrave, speaking yesterday after a memorial for deceased fellow biker Patrick Thompson, did however admit some motorcyclists behaved recklessly  on the road. Stating it was imperative for motorcyclists to give their full attention to the road, Belgrave explained: “Everybody likes  to criticize bikers, but the truth is people see them and underestimate the speed a bike moves at.
