I was out for a ride up the Old Pacific Highway on Saturday to give the bike a good run and to pepper myself with thousands of flys, when a bike rode past me in the opposite direction. I gave the nod and he raised his left hand to his own head height, and while pointing in the air made a swirling motion. I straight away assumed that to mean that the cops were up ahead, and so I slowed down for a few Kays only to discover that there were no cops at all. In fairness, he was coming from the opposite direction just after a bit where the 2 lanes are separated from each other for sevaral kays, so the cops could have been on his side of the road and not visible to me. So is that the universal motorbike symbol for the cops? Or was he a wandering proctologist looking for work?
