Re: Excuses excuses

When maneuvering in a car park I just use tho clutch, do not touch the throttle, only in first or reverse, that keeps the speed down One should avoid reversing as much as possible, is that in the HC? One should reverse into parking spaces wherever possible in order to be able to drive out forwards ...

Re: Excuses excuses

She reminds me of a friend of mine. Instead of learning from the fine, doesn't modify his behaviour and gets caught again claims everyone else does it and doesn't understand how the rest of us don't have 9 points as well. The fact is that's the one thing she's pretty accurate about - most people do...

Of course the absolutely last way you'd choose to go to the London Marathon is by car.

Re: Satnavs 'cause accidents'?

Most satnavs have lane instruction nowadays. It's a tool, it assists. One of my pet peeves is the sheer quantity of road furniture out there to scan, so something that can narrow the options as you approach a junction is generally a good thing in unfamiliar surroundings. I know there's always the sl...

Re: Satnavs 'cause accidents'?

"Cause accidents?" Not a bit of it — satnavs save marriages. When touring by tandem (Is there any other way?) The satnav fits securely on the stoker's handlebar. This means: — I, as Captain, can concentrate on the road and traffic — Mrs. M-k, as Rear Admiral, can keep me on the straight a...

Re: Satnavs 'cause accidents'?

It is a legal requirement to have a working speedometer. No doubt some boffin will be round soon with chapter and verse over this, but I doubt anyone would ever notice if you didn't have one but relied on keeping below the speed limits by using a device or other. Maybe an MOT tester could notice as...

Re: Newbie question, which bike?

Thanks for the replies, I wouldn’t say I would never use the bike on the road but first thing is to shift excess weight I am carrying and have something with some competitiveness like Zwift or similar that will add a bit of motivation & enjoyment. I had an exercise bike a good few years ago but...

Just like telephoning, switch the **** thing off The brain has two halves, but one cannae do two things at the same time Could you listen to a person in the passenger seat beside you telling you when to turn? That's what a satnav does. Much better than fiddling with a map on your knee, which is wha...
