Re: Possible house move

that's a shame mate, I bet the other house isn't even that bad, surveys always seem to make people nervous, everything always seems so much worse when written down in black and white, often things are never as bad as they are made out to be but fingers crossed for a fast turn around now.

Re: Speeding charges dropped against 4 bikers

The problem is, you can never easily and safely predict a stopping distance on the road as you cannot control what other road users or pedestrians might do. And what they might be about to do might be perfectly safe if all other traffic was travelling at the speed limit but not ...

Whilst keeping your concentration on that approaching horizon, checking your mirrors or above for helicopters is truly ...

Re: Cannabis

How much to make it law? The same as any other bill we pass through parliament.

How much to implement? No idea. It depends. If its just for medical use then the pharmaceutical companies do the tests and submit the product for approval.

Re: Speeding charges dropped against 4 bikers

Doing 140mph per se in the right place isn't dangerous but when the speed limit is 70mph other road users have a right to expect that someone will not be doing 140mph anywhere around them. This makes for interesting reading. Look how stopping distance increases exponentially ...

Re: Must be getting old

... anything really left to do to the 853, Monty and i like to tinker with bikes over the winter. Plus i don't like the fact i can't see over or round other vehicles very easily when riding it on the road. And age is catching up with me. We will see, its not set in stone. Just an idea i am toying with.

Re: Oil change procedure on Panigale V4

Yes, but the Ducati is as cool-as-fcuk, and something that people can walk into a dealership & buy. A Veyron, on the other hand, looks like it was conjured up by the Captain Scarlet & The Mysterons in-house design team. It's more of a design exercise than anyrhing else, and ...

Re: What are you doing today ??

Great day today. Bit of pottering this morning, then my brother messaged. Went round to his for a impromptu BBQ with family and his NCT group.

Probably sounds like hell to some, but a chance for our kids to play while we have a drink or two and a chat with other adults is great.

Re: Mid Wales Rideout Sat 23rd June

Event Cancelled.

Seems most people had other plans already made and the few who could make it had last minutes changes to plan.

Would be good to do it another time so I'll propose another event and hopefully the date is more suitable and we can get a good group of slappers together.
