Your profile suggests you're in the west of the UK... Crossing to Caen and seeing the D-day beaches would be easier and worthy of a long weekend if you've not been before.

If you are going to Normandy, this place is well worth a visit.

Its category B not A. With Cat A it must be scrapped. With B, it can be repaired but will require a full VOSA check rather than just an MOT to go back on the road. If the frame is damaged, then look for another frame and transplant all the good parts onto the new frame (which will have its own reg number) then once you've finished, send off the V5 for the original with the box for "scrapped" ticked.
You can re-use all the components from the old bike apart from the frame. Scrap yards sell engines and anything else they can from all the smashed cars.

Probably because cars rubbish and only good for carrying the shopping :lol I think on some new cars you can't even check the oil level. The engine is sealed and you have to take it to a dealer to do an oil change....junk!

On my Audi, there is no dipstick, you have to check the level via the computer screen inside the car.

No body has mentioned that when the oil is warm it will have expanded and therefore higher in the window than when cold.
Must admit I've never noticed the difference and anyway my light has never come on so I don't get concerned about it.
I still change the oil at approx 4,000 miles and check the level now and again, but have never had to top it up between oil changes. Bike now done about 55k.
Doesn't take much oil from first appearing in the window to going beyond the top, so a bit of care required at the final stages of filling.[size=78%]  [/size]

Expansion will be minimal. So ignore it.
Oil will be up around the top of the engine when warm rather than all in the sump. This is why it is LOWER in the window when warm and why the manual says to check it when WARM

Well, 8 weeks on and the paralysis is recovering well but the eyes are still playing up. Hopefully I will be back at work soon!

Shingles.  It's really getting ma goat.
Had that nasty cold that was going roond before Christmas - what a stoater it wis - though I managed to struggle through without calling in sick to work.  Just got over it before the new year.  Did notice we had loads of folks off with it.  But then maybe my determination to soldier on is why I now have shingles.
Started feeling odd on new years day.  Just knackered - falling asleep and for unusally long periods of time.  Then the pain started.  Seems to be in my throat, ear and rhs of my face.  Saw the doc on the 4th.  I've had this before so I figured what was happening.  Halfway through the course of anti-virals.

The weekend was absolute hell there.  Still foccing hellish.  Really foccing getting my goat. :(

Hope it doesnt turn into Bells Palsey

The construction and use regulations state that the only colour emitted from the front can be white or amber. From the rear its red or amber (plus white for the reversing light)
Any other colour is prohibited.

A lot of teh chavs get away with teh blue bits under their cars becasue it is reflected off the road etc and not actually visible from the source. The truck lights are illegal but you would need to find a copper (first) that gives a toss (second) before anyone gets done for having them

The equipment on the roof of Gatwick Police Station seems to be about as much use as the Snooper, seeing as the things were flying around the air port for a not insignificant time.     [/font][/color]     
the latest statement from the police says that there may never have been a drone as all they have to work with are witness statements from the general public, police and airport workers.

Sounds like they dont believe themselves :pokefun

Just got a glimpse at the high tech equipment used by the army to combat rogue drones.....Quite impressive I must say.

If you have seen the picture of the roof of Gatwick Police station, you can see one of these there

though the blokes alibi has a strange smell to it. His "boss" who claims he was working all day, is also his ex and the mother of his child.

I am sure that the police have checked it properly though and they do have the wrong people. Just some nosy neighbour who doesn't like the bloke fingering him as a suspect because he has a big drone.

There is a report now that the police have found a damaged drone near the airport so, if that is the drone concerned, it will have some clues to the real culprit.

Also shotguns have an effective range of maybe 100 metres (depending on load), so the chances of being in the right place are pretty slim.

With enough people around the perimeter of the airport, spaced at say 75m apart, we could get it :pokefun
