Re: Mandatory speed limiters to all new vehicles within 3 ye

Lambo and Ferrari were extreme examples.

What about 3.0litre and above Ford's, Bmw, VW, Volvo, Audi etc........ half of most manufacturers luxury, performances, executive car ranges could become very undesirable with a massively reduced customer base over night.

Re: A Tyre Thread

... before they need changing but that's the nature of the riding I do. I tried the 01s and didn't get on with them. Far too flat for my tastes. They were slow steering. I guess if they start off square it takes longer to square them off.

Re: A Tyre Thread

... tyre I have ever used which I thought was shit was the Michelin PR4. It wore in a strange fashion and I always thought the front and rear profiles were mismatched from new. Yet others rave about them.

A Tyre Thread

... bike on track. So Thank you Avon for the extremely underrated tyre, I look forward (when they arrive) to more of the same. (y) Oh yes how much were they ? £154.50 (2017) and now £149.50 (clap) One bloody rear for the track bike cost more than this :^

... of TV game show has almost gone, they are being taken over by the so called celebrity people, which changes the whole dynamics of what These shows were about. Not that I watch tv much, films or box sets seem to be the norm lol..... along with sports.

You tried. It sounds like he was very ill.

Tough day though...

Re: The Oscars

Historically a lot of awards were given to films that were fairly arty, not successful. I’m guessing that leads to a contest for the most arty judge etc etc.

I wouldn't say you failed. Failure suggests you had control over the outcome. You tried. You were there to help a friend and you're still there helping a friend. It might seem like little comfort now, but he passed away in the company of people who cared deeply for him ...

The Oscars

does anyone outside of the film industry give a shit?

I can't understand why the media is so full of stories about it, who wore what, what mega expensive free gifts they were given, who went to which party.

Bunch of self congratulatory arse if you ask me.
