Re: Porridge: love or hate?

Porridge is especially good in summer, it goes down so easily I make it fresh mind, best not to leave it standing overnight in hot weather, might go mouldy Mind, porridge is great in winter too :wink: Can I just say that you should correct the statement a bit? You find - and other people do too - f...

Someone's been painting seagulls maybe?
Not me, as I haven't got any pink paint.

Re: Compressionless brake housings for cable discs.

Back now. £330 lighter after a full service and MOT. :cry: ........ but I did have a nice (anticlockwise) 25mile ride through the South Hams of Devon. Screen Shot 2018-08-15 at 15.48.05.jpg Not doing anything to brakes today, but will do tomorrow. Still concerned about stiff bends at the steering en...

Re: Tree Kills Camper!

When I first heard this on the news yesterday, I immediately thought that the campsite owners were to blame by not looking after their trees. However, reading about it on BBC News website, the poor chap wasn't camped in the designated camping area. A spokesperson for Cornwall Council, which owns the...

Re: Compressionless brake housings for cable discs.

Two things: Well, three really! The new Jagwire outer arrived as I said. I've given it a good looking-at, and I suspect that it's so stiff, it will interfere with the steering where the cable exits the 'bar tape and goes down to the boss on the cross-bar. If I were to fit a front cable too, the stee...

Yes, a prat and a thug, but there's no law about being one either or both of them.

Re: M5 Cyclist

What about cycling on a busy dual carriageway?
Legally, you can do it, but not on a quiet motorway.

What is the practical difference here?

Re: Ben Stokes Discuss

So, what was he guilty of?
Being a prat in my view, but that's not a legally binding offence.

Fights outside nightclubs and pubs up and down the country every night maybe and they are all prats too.

Re: Death by Dangerous Cycling

Still don't agree.
If you kill someone they are dead .......... to paraphrase TC.

IMHO, we should do away with all the differences of vehicles, bicycles, lorries ................. and any other means and have the same charges across the board.

Re: Ben Stokes Discuss

Thanks TC.
Therefore it's reasonable for him to be found NG.
No-one else was fearing for their personal safety.

It was just a fight, and he was being a prat.

I can't.
One is "likely" the other is "possible"?

There isn't a delineation. It's all one thing by degrees.

Re: Ben Stokes Discuss

Chatting about this to Mrs Mick F when the news came on that he'd been acquitted, I suggested that "affray" must have a legal definition. Maybe he was guilty of being a prat, or guilty of fighting, but "affray" is something specific and the jury found him not guilty. Just found t...
