Re: Vaping - links with pulmonary disease!

The health risks of vaping were known from the start but ignored

The fact that they have the very particulates known to cause issues in polluted areas is a classic example

Emit them form a car... dodgy
VApe them.. OK then

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Just as the GFA didnt come with an agenda, so the soln to the Irish border has to be approached in the same way, with an open mind - thats some thing the EU refuses to have. It wants to settle things in its favour what ever the cost to other parties involved - that isnt what politics is all about? ...

Re: Is electric the end of the bike as we know it

In any case, I always thought that the main point of a Harley was the noise - in comparison with the other motorbikes in the neighbourhood a bit like Concorde among the 727s. Less objectionable, too. Nothing that a noise generator cannot fix. In the early days, electric vans were showing an increas...

Re: Is electric the end of the bike as we know it

I think it's important to understand just how man people in NL cycle well into their 80's and even 90's,which in turn a fall for such elderly people more often may lead death or serious injury,that a young person may just shrug off. The link I gave ( Interesting PDF to download ) does a lot of that

Re: Date This Photo

A great photograph, whenever it was. :) If it was me racing at the time I would have tried my best to win the set of cutlery rather than the other silverware. And what is the purpose of the step-ladder to nowhere I wonder. :lol: I believe ordinaries would have been popular at the time.... mounting ...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Maybe the prospect of leaving the EU was the final nail, but it's been going downhill for a while. There weren't meant to be any final nails, it was all sunny uplands! Seems to me we've had so many "final nails" over the past couple of years you'd have thought we could have kept a steel f...

Re: Is electric the end of the bike as we know it

I don’t know why cyclists see ebikes as threat, they are almost a different form of transport, people that ride them would probably have not made that journey by bike. They are a greater threat to the safety of everyone including the user, we've read on here the exultation of users being able to go...

Re: E-bike riders get nore exercise than regular cyclist's

There are those who just have a hatred for e-bikes. Certainly not I and I hope that doesn't come across in my posts on the subject. I do have reservations about them but that is more on a philosophical level than a practical one. I was not referring to yourself. There are a few who, who with no exp...
