Anyone on here if travelling with United airlines would be willing to vacate there seat if asked as the flight has been over booked??
Just picture the scene a 747 or some other type large aircraft over that is booked.
Today United airlines have decided to increase the compensation package for passengers who do willing give up their seat.
The new package will be $10,000!!!! so instead of having one disgruntled passenger kicking and screaming when being dragged off a flight, you will now have perhaps about 300+ passengers kicking each other to pieces fighting to get off.
No doubt about it Ryanair or Easy Jet will follow there lead hahahaha.

So here we are first road race of the season and we already have one fatality. Sadly Dario Connci a 38 year Italian has died. Dario was a regular at the Tandragee 100 this being his 6th visit. He was taken out by another competitor who came off thankfully the other rider was not badly injured.
R.I.P Dario. I have been a road race fan since I was a kid but every year I grow to dislike the sport. Let's hope this is the last fatality this season.
Bulging is not good, think I would be changing them out soon. At the end of the day when you do change them you know they will last a few more years so peace of mind.
Found these on ebay
I come from N Ireland and you certainly will get free health care there as a UK citizen , the european health card should cover you for emergency treatment. Personally I think travel insurance with in the EU is a con job. Only use it has is for medivac back to the UK and I bet then they will try and wriggle out of it.
Well Guy has not got his comeback of to a great start, he crashed out on the first lap taking another rider with him. Thankfully both riders escaped injury.
There is actual footage posted on Facebook, TT warriors group what the hell Guy was doing was just plain bloody stupid. He pulls a stunt like that on the Island they will scrape him of some wall.
All it will need to elect Marine le Pen as the next French President is another terror attack and she will win it.
If Macron wins it don't expect him to do the UK any favours concerning Brexit. At least if Le Pen wins the EU will collapse and at least the UK will be able to talk trade deals with who ever we want to in Europe.

There is nothing to compare it to it is a class of it's own. You cannot compare another 3 cylinder bike that has a 1050 cc engine against an 897cc engine the MT09 costs just over £7700 and the Speed Triple is £10,799, that is like comparing a Skoda to an Audi.
The MT10 I am sure is a decent bike I have had a very short test ride on one when they first came out. The riding position for me was not good , but that was just me as I have knackered knees. I had a good look around the bike and to me the build quality was no better or no worse than an 09. I honestly thought the plastics were pretty poor and to be honest tacky.
I had a 2009 FZ1 18 months ago the build quality on that bike was really good and certainly better than my current MT09. If I could ride an MT10 in comfort I would consider one but that will never be the case due to health problems. My next bike most likely will be the MT09 Tracer.
Concerning power and fun factor the MT09 has ample in both departments, with an upgraded rear shock and stiffer springs in the forks on the twisty roads the MT09 is a match for most 1 ltr bikes. Stick it in A Mode and hold on.

I had a good look at the MT10 when they first came out and sorry but the build quality is on a par with the 09. Very much a budget bike, cheap tacky plastic bits all over, not unlike the 09.Which I love by the way, and have owned one for over 18 months now. It is a 2013 bike, still looks like brand new but there again I live in a decent climate here in SW France.
If I had one in the UK it would be plastered in ACF50 12months a year.
Dudeofrude, you say the Speed triple would trounce the MT09 ?? well 138 bhp 1050 cc v 115 bhp 897 cc it should. Also the Trumpet is nearly £4,000 more the MT09 the only two comparisons I see are, they are both naked bikes and both 3 cylinders end off.
