They are fantastic-looking machines. I don't know if you read Classic Motorcycle Mechanics, but one of the contributors recently finished a decade-long restoration of a Stinger.

Re: Loan question (student)

Agreed - I think the installation of average speed cameras on sections of the A5 (west of Corwen) and on roads around that area has meant fewer camera vans being deployed. I don't actually mind...
