Re: Red means STOP! or How I began to hate cyclists.

Can I just make a potential point about you and your cycling? I mean no offence by it just putting an idea out. Could you be excessively making yourself visible and could that be creating a view in motorists who see you that you're someone to give a wide berth? When I cycled with my son in a trailer...

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

Limiting power to 100bhp? Interesting! Domestic use of vehicles isn't the only use, there's trade, commercial and industrial use. Take trade use, which means vans. There's often power break points at 90, 100 and 115/125 bhp depending on the van. Looking at vauxhall vivaro for example the standard po...

Re: Red means STOP! or How I began to hate cyclists.

To err is human, to forgive is divine!

But not when it's cyclists! Grrrr! And they don't even pay road tax! Grrr! They should be made to have number plates, licence and liability insurance. Grrr!

:D :D :D :wink:

Re: Letters: Help! The New Forest is becoming a suburban park

Wasn't it a hunting ground for royalty? Basically a playground for the rich / royalty. Now at least it's the playground of the masses not restricted to royalty and friends. Progress indeed! Spot on! (TM we agree on something at last :D ). Shhh! I'll get thrown out of my local Conservative and union...

Re: Red means STOP! or How I began to hate cyclists.

I might have taken similar threads as an opportunity to whinge about a dangerous double set of lights near a supermarket entrance near us. So I'll take this as another example too! :D It's a double set of lights left to side road then second set off to the right into the supermarket carpark. Slight ...

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

Increase the price of petrol and diesel through increase in price of crude and you'll increase the price of modern life. You'd probably see larger scale poverty in the UK too. Price car drivers off the road you'll price trucks off the road. Unless the population can soak up the fuel cost increases. ...

Rope swinging if you don't mind. Swinging without mention of rope is so passé. It's a seventies thing and definitely not what I do! :D

Re: Hat

I use a merino cycling skull cap on winter bought from Aldi. Too warm except in the real cold days. Washed it as per destructions and it feels tight now. I'm seeing a pattern here. First wash and hats shrink. At least also merino knitted hats a stretch again. I also only wore those merino hats under...

Re: Hat

Do hats stay on baldies better than the hairy of head?

Is it a suction effect?

I'm offended! As a keen rope swinger who does no harm to anyone I resent being linked to the polluting BBQers.

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

Just suv cars or trucks too? All motoring or just the ones you don't like? It's interesting just what you focus on. It reminds me of my brother in law and his company car. It was a Honda suv. He parked at an inner city carpark owned by his employer. Also a taxable perk reserved to managers and above...

Re: Is Trump Mad?

As to sexually offensive name calling. **** has become a common term of offence. It's not really about doing inappropriate things to your mother. It's like questioning your parentage. An insult. As to sexually offensive comments, saying comments along the lines of wanting to sleep with your daughter...

Re: Is Trump Mad?

A senator posted a set of four photographs, three were the us born members of "the squad" and the fourth was the male, white senator posting it on twitter. In the words he basically said only one of us was born outside of America and he's a middle aged white male. Why doesn't the president...
