Get ye to Bristol laddie,

Not only is it legal to ride in the bus lanes, but positively encouraged!

Heck, even the taxi drivers are beginning to be aware of the phenomenon (I
can't believe I've just suggested that!).

There are even one or two councils here abouts installing motorcycle parking
bars (i.e. bars to which you can chain your steed) - but then we don't enjoy
metropolitan salaries - so there have to be some compensations, don't there?
