Re: Our tax money at work

Big construction projects frequently enjoy cross-party support. One lot gets bunce for their mates/donors, and the other gets lots of paid up members for their paymasters.

Re: Rambling

The US president has a lot more power than our PM.

Pretty much everything in the UK has to go through parliament, or is subject to oversight by parliament. In the US, their president can do quite...

After three months of tedious lockdown, if you were given the choice of a luxury weekend away with your wife, or a barbeque with your mates, would you choose:

a) Burgers

If you're looking at a candy colour it's three or four coats depending on the state of the underlying plastic:

1) High build primer (optional)
2) Metallic silver
3) Clear colour
4) Lacquer

Re: Cyclists riding 2 abreast on busy country roads

It was a long time ago, but I'm sure when I learned to drive they told me never to rely on the advice of other road users. Always decide for yourself whether it's safe to proceed. So if the motorist...

Re: Candy Blue YC2 Aerosol or Local Sprayer - Cambs

I might still have a Candy Blue seat cowl stashed from the days when I had an '03 SV650 if you can't find the paint.

Re: mmm prison food

I might have a friend who hit 150mph (GPS, not speedo) on a UK motorway many years ago before the days of speed cameras hidden behind motorway signs.

At 150mph our motorways aren't close to flat,...

Re: Dropped SV and Issues

Shouldn't be a problem. The tipover switch will have stopped it before the lack of oil caused any problems. The SV engine is pretty robust too.

Re: Dropped SV and Issues

Yep, bikes have a tipover switch which cuts the power when the bike is on it's side. Sometimes it takes a couple of minutes to reset after you set it upright. You also need to check all the usual...

Re: Roof cycle racks

I have a spider style rack which secures to the tailgate, but my last car (Golf GTi) had a plastic spoiler along the top of the tailgate which got bent out of shape by the top straps. So I'd suggest...

Re: give up booze for Covid?

At the start of the Covid-19 outbreak the alcohol shelves were well stocked. These days it's looking a bit emptier, just like the rest of the supermarket.
