Re: sv1000's are now ULEZ exempt

Political element, and a financial one too - I believe other cities are watching London with interest to see how much of a return there is on this prohibition!
I changed my SV to a later model...

Re: 1st bath in about 2 years

wish my teenage son would use the bath LESS to be fair - usually decides he wants a bath at 11pm, so there's very little hot water in the tank for me at 0500 :)

I keep meaning to hide the plug!

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

The original reports said motorcycle vs lorry, but later ones said it was a hit a run by a "small dark coloured vehicle" - don't know if maybe the collision with the hit and runner pushed him into...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Can only echo the sentiment here, came up from Harlow this morning and found the m11 closed northbound, was afraid to hear that it might have been fatal when I saw that it was lorry vs motorbike :(

Re: Dumb ways to die...

Anything involving a bin bag, chair leg and orange in the mouth is probably a bit on the dumb side, and embarassing for those left behind too :)
