Re: Last night I dreamt

... last night. Myself, Kwacky, Frankie and Nutz had gone to the IOM on bikes but on a sailing ship. We didn't stay in a hotel but in a dormitory with other people. One of the people staying there was a stunning looking woman dressed like the Scottish Widows woman but i could not tell if she was real ...

Re: What do you want to vent about today?

With our current crop of managers, they would probably class it as gross misconduct... When I worked for the other large bus company they removed all services from the problem area for a month and then re-introduced them until 6pm only. They also made sure the local community ...

Re: What ails you today?

Re: What do you want to vent about today?

Being told to come in to the office once a week.

What for?

The air con is on full pelt. There's only one other person in this wing. The policy seems daft to me. Unless there's a reason to come in surely we be trusted to decide if a 2 hour round trip is really necessary?

Re: Hybrid Kawasaki

The future is that the UK will be run on a more local basis ( as many other countries already are) with decisions made locally to suit what that area needs.

Re: Hybrid Kawasaki

There's very little private traffic going through London now. People struggle to afford, keep and insure vehicles. I don't think Kwak and other companies are too worried about a limited market like central London. They know that a lot of journeys are relatively short. Working habits are changing ...

Re: Hybrid Kawasaki

It doesn't look that bad at all, does it??

The swingarm is certainly a "no frills" design, but the rest of it looks like any other sportbike, for the most part.

Re: What are you doing today ??

It's a smart-looking car. Made in a Fiat factory in India apparently...amongst other places. Well that would account for the build quality and reliability. I detest it immensely. Plus the indicators and wipers controls are on the wrong sides of the steering wheel, ...

Re: Government proposals to end modification of vehicles

... automation integration systems would be a no-no. I really am surprised we as bikers can still rip cat's out tbh. It's been highly illegal in all other automotive types for years, at least in NZ and Australia

Re: The new improved fitness thread

Met my PT for an hour in the gym. Not an official session, just helping each other out.

I'm battered. He's trying out a new programme for himself. It's like HIIT with weights. My heart was pounding for about an hour afterwards.
