Re: First escooter death?

Hi Vorpal, :D :D , The hesitation you mention would be enough to cause a fail in the UK Driving or Motor-cycle test, "Not Making Reasonable Progress", honest. Bloody dangerous, as bad as speeding! Hi Kwackers :D , Yes I think you should flag up a "Humour Warning"! May be like me,...

Re: First escooter death?

Hello Cunobelin, My comments about power output was there because one poster stated that having a peed around 45 mph, without training or testing was what they wanted. The fact that such was in fact a low capacity motor-cycle appeared to escape the poster? The fact that riding anything capable of mo...

Re: British warships in Gulf to be renamed AA and RAC

Hi all, Noel Chevasse was a double VC, never fired a shot! Kings Liverpool Doctor. Both VC's earned in the same year, second postumously. His courage under fire could never be questioned, both awards were for his actions in rescuing men from no man's land. His is the only war grave with the two VC's...

Re: First escooter death?

Hello there, Maybe reading page 55 of the August/September issue of Cycle will help folk become fully aware of the current regulations covering E:Bikes etc? It shows a link to the government regulations site. Wanting a sane level of control for our safety shouldn't cause us to be labelled Luddites o...

Re: First escooter death?

Hello Cunobelin, Name correct by me this time. What parts of my post are baffling you? Nothing complicated in my post, just a plea for people to act within the laws & regulations prevailing! Life on the road is tough enough when people insist on using vehicles beyond their skill level. The car c...

Re: First escooter death?

Hello again, People are free to create new forms of motorized personal transport, which does happen. But until they have been put forward and given legal approval they should not be used in public! Impatience is no excuse for choosing to endanger others . The regulations for electric cycles have bee...

Re: First escooter death?

Hello there Cubolin, My point is simple, there are approved regulations of what may be used on the road. If it doesn't meet those regulations why try to push the parameters? People will always try it on, but the enforcement of the rules should be carried out. At this point I will offer a thank you t...

Re: First escooter death?

Hello again, In this country we have a very poor understanding of tyre suitability, with an even worse attitude to compliance! One must learn lessons from colder continental countries. Many countries make it mandatory to use winter tyres for a number of months of he year, with serious penalties for ...

Re: First escooter death?

Hello there, My view on the tragic Rhyl incident was that the senior Police spokesperson was a numpty! He stated that bald tyres didn't pose the real threat, ignoring the basic fact of road tyre technology that the movement of the tread block areas move to generate heat & grip! Don't recall expe...

Hi Nez, I say "Billhooks", similar to the LibDems! With commercial TV he who pays the piper calls the tune, complete with irritation factor. The fact that it provides awful music is an accepted fact. Come back 1952 TV. TTFN MM

Re: What is a constitution?

Hello again, A two third requirement with any ballot is pretty well just like the "Black Ball" lark, b-all would get done! Even if it was applied only to the actual number of people who turn out to vote it would still create an obstructive mechanism, not in any way progressive. I go back t...

Re: What is a constitution?

Hello all, We keep being told by the controllers that we in the UK have an "Unwritten Constitution"??? So we have experts on hypothetical meanings about non existent rights, with resolute assurances that all citizens are better off with such a system! But for me I support the old comment -...
