Re: Rusty now in York

Well this thread got a **** response. Think most of the Madlanders are gone. Good to hear from you Russ and if I'm up York way I'll be sure to give you a shout. Still on the Tuono?

Re: GMX - The Applecross Edition 8th to 10th Sept 2017

Re: Gm10, Applecross 1/9/17

It's a case of time off work for most people I think.

What I might do though is come up the road on the Thursday night after work which would be an 11pm or midnight arrival, have a lie in on...

They mistook him for an elephant and put him back in the zoo. He does have the physique and the memory to match to be fair.

He must have some internet access though because he still posts on...

Re: Gm10

The very concept of the GM was to get all those people that go to the AR up to see Scotland.

Re: Involved in an accident- Advice needed please

They've only changed it to "appropriate" to take account of the various marked lanes now painted on roundabouts.

If not indicated otherwise left lane only to be used for left and straight on is...

Re: Involved in an accident- Advice needed please

On a busy two way road that's moving at 60mph, a copper can't U turn. By the time the copper gets a safe opportunity to turn round and turns, the perpetrator has gone, he's a mile away for every 1...

Re: Involved in an accident- Advice needed please

RH, I get the two lane thing and when I filter on my bike I always view and plan that as an overtake manoeuvre whereby the responsibility is on me.

I thought it was a very good post.

It only talks about taking a share of blame after he says "now I've got all that off my chest", before that he discusses the semantics of how right of way works...
