Re: Regenerative braking

We've already had to upgrade to ventilated discs & superior calipers to overcome brake failure with the original equipment (boiling brake fluid!). OT but I'd highly recommend a hub drag brake if you can fit one. We're just back from Alps and a rapid 800m descent was no problem - rim brakes only...

Re: COVID 19 testing for holiday returnees - a special case?

Well, we're in France, listening to the rain falling in our campsite, hence time for this post. There is no government advice against travel - quite the opposite, if anything there has been encouragement to "save" the travel industry. We drove here via tunnel, with near zero contact with ...

Re: Jihadi Brides and their Children.

In a civilised society, governed by the rule of law, guilt is determined by a court after evidence is presented. It is nothing to with whether individual members of the public see it or not.
