I put a fiver in the other day. It's going in for service & MOT on Monday and I didn't want to weigh the tank down too much :think

Geordie - Alan Partridge got it right - 'it's just noise'

Apparently he's just had a 6 month driving ban reduced to 2 months because it would interfere with production for his new show.
Shame they didn't impose a lifetime ban. His Partridge character is one of the most unfunny, boring creations I've ever had the displeasure of viewing :z

FFS!! talk about one rule for them and one for us. :wall imagine the response if you told the beak you'd just started a job after being out of work for a while and your new employers wouldn't be to happy about it,after he'd stopped laughing he'd probably do you for contempt. :finger

You would put the car on a trailer and film him, rather than him being filmed talking/acting and driving, which is not much different to being on a mobile.
A lot of these judges get totally suckered in by defence liars.  :rolleyes

Foc me, one of the best English comedy characters ever.  Superb.

Coogan was caught driving his Porsche at 36mph in a 30mph zone, which merits a three-point penalty. He already had nine points from previous motoring offences and faced an automatic six-month ban under the ‘totting-up’ procedure.

Whoops.  He needs to be more careful.

£5?  What?
Splash and dash.

"splash and dash"? it used to be called being a tight arse. :lol
Remember - I don't commute on it and sometimes it can be up to 5 weeks in-between rides so I like to keep the petrol fresh and only fill up with roughly what I need for the blat I am about to do, £5 will cover 50 miles thereabouts. Otherwise a with a full tank the last bit of petrol could be 2 or 3 months old. And besides a full tank of petrol weighs about the same as me.

How come hot sunny weather normally is regarded as global warming - death - disaster UNLESS it comes on a bank holiday in which case its "glorious" "beautiful"   "warm and sunny for many" - "just in time for the weekend". ."Five million drivers hit the roads for holidays and day trips as the weather brightens up"Not one negative remark - even the global warming fans have gone to the beach

 Cars with aftermarket tinted rear lights.  Right now they really get my goat.


VNA just avoided a trip to A&E this evening.  Out on the bike.  Just come round a corner onto a big long straight.  The low sun is in my eyes but not really impeding visibility.   Passed a couple of cars, and zipping along the straight.  It leads eventually into a long sweeping bend with a minor road junction on the right.


I’m approaching the bend.  There’s a car ahead which was moving at a fair rate but suddenly I’m gaining on it rapidly, then it dawns on me it’s maybe going to take the junction and I’m on the brakes like foc – full on emergency stop.


I fail.  Foc foc foc.  As I pass the car I notice the heavily smoked rear lights and a dull blink from the indictor.  I’m at least lucky the young dude checked his mirror and didn’t turn on me.


I stop inches in front of his car.  I turn and chase after him. Find him turning into a farm driveway a few hundred yards down the road he turned off into.


Seriously his lights were blacked out.  Young boy has VNA raging at him.  I’m screaming at him like a madman. 
I mean why black out perfectly good lights.  Why would you not want people to see your brake lights and indicators.  Foccin why?
And why would you want to invite people to drive/ride straight in the back of you.  I didn’t see his brake light or indicator.


Of course, VNA also needs to slow down and pay more attention. :o   That was way too close. :eek

I'm pissed off for not seeing it coming.

It's a big long very fast sweeping bend.My first thought was I was going to pop past him, then a split second later it dawned on me he was braking and going to make the turn. 


Obviously if he hadn't blacked out his lights......... but then we've still gotta read everything that's happening even if the usual clues are missing.

Lucky there VNA, the two guys that got killed outside Lanark were not so lucky, I believe it was two foreign bikers turned on to the wrong side of the road after crossing the Hyndford Bridge over the river Clyde--RIP to them both --so sad.

Jesus Oldgit, that's dreadful.I've read it was a bike on bike head on. 
You just never know.
Have to say I've had a handful of frights with folks on the wrong side of the road.

Just come home after two weeks holiday. Everything in the garden is burnt to a crisp. Why does it never rain at home when I go away?

Judging by the aroma wafting in through my open windows this Bank holiday weekend, you weren't alone :b
