Better they're on pushbikes and not in their Nissan Micra's, Honda Jazz's or Rover 75s with you stuck behind them at 50mph

what!!!! they get upto 50mph.. i'm sure that most of the cars round this way have a block of wood under the accelerator so they cant go faster than 40mph.. ohhh and they do 40mph EVERYWHERE.

round this way its the citroen picasso owners you give a HUGE wide berth to. worst drivers on the road by a looooongg way.

Yup, the 40 milers do 40 in 60, 50 40 and 30 limits, not caught on doing 40 in one of the rapidly becoming more common 20 limits yet, but I am sure some of them would. They seem totally unaware of what is going on around then, and surely they never look in their rear view mirrors at the traffic trapped behind.

I was behind a Nissan Leaf EV doing about 30 in a 60 limit, even a tractor was trying to overtake it, my bet was that the battery charge indicator was knocking on empty and the driver was trying to limp home.

Default Smile of the day - What is yours?

Mentioning Polite vests works every time.


It's been a carp week so I've been looking for small pleasures.


BUT the F800 went for it's first service today. Loan bike? R1200RS

Big grins!

Yes, but only when being pushed by an HGV who hasn't seen them

I bought myself a car.

My 7 series needs so much doing to it it's become financially not worth repairing so I'm selling it to a breaker.

Just needed a little run about so I've bought a 1.4 Fiesta Titanium auto. It'll suit my needs fine, and even though it's a 2009 model it's only got 28k miles on the clock as it was bought as a motability scheme vehicle, so came with FSH, all the receipts and not been thrashed by any boy racers either.

We've had Motability cars since 2004 as my wife is disabled. They're always prestine when we hand them back as I look after them. Milage is rarely more than 21k. I've always thought they'd be a bargain buy for someone.

The downside is that some Motability owners don't treat their cars well. They trash them like a hire car and run them ragged.

Saying that I think those owners are rare and they'll get told to pay for any damages that isn't normal wear and tear as essentially the contract is a lease. If a car comes back in good condition the owner gets a 250 award.

Looks like you've done okay.

The car was bought from the neighbouring dealer but this dealer has done all the servicing so they know the car. They gave me 12 months warranty too. I'm going to miss my heated seat!
