Rolling while driving takes years to perfect. My mate Roland's dad could do it with one hand.

Anyway, we got back and I asked him ...

Re: 30 years ago tomorrow

This was Rogers car. (we had personal issue back in those days) There were something like 40 points of entry and 20 points of exit. It wasn't just all the bullet holes, but you can imagine the mess inside as well. Anyway, the insurance company wanted to put it back into service. Newbury refused to h...

Re: 30 years ago tomorrow

The feeling of disbelief I had then about the Hungerford massacre hasn't changed, in fact the frequency of similar events elsewhere in the world has added to that disbelief, how anyone could do something like that is still utterly beyond my understanding. I feel for anyone that has lost friends, fam...

Re: 30 years ago tomorrow

Sad sequence of events that day. Why he insisted on taking other peoples lives is a mystery.

I'm sorry to hear you lost a friend and a colleague that day. That can never be easy to deal with.

30 years ago tomorrow

... called down from both Readng and Taplow (the other 2 STA bases) and what we saw I can still remember vividly as if it was yesterday. In all my years in the service and all the fatal crashes and dead bodies I dealt with, Hungerford was the only incident that had what I would describe as a profound ...

Re: Klim clothes - Klim Kodiak Jacket

There's a lifetime warranty and a 5 year replacement service. With the miles I do I'll take 5 years. My current jacket has done 3 years and it's still performing but the Velcro could do with being replaced and a couple of zips have failed. One was replaced. I'll keep the ...

Re: Super Soco Electric Bike/Moped review

In 5years, no. In 10 years? More than maybe. 100 miles would be fine for me for a commuter, as that means I can ride to work and back, with enough juice to spare should I have to do anything other than a direct route. I can ...

Re: Super Soco Electric Bike/Moped review

Why have we gone from not in this lifetime, to 15 years, to 5 years? To answer your question, yes. Although a number of parameters would have to be met... 1. Performance 2. Range 3. Availability of fast charging stations All need to be comparable ...
