Re: Mesh armour jackets

Whatever you choose, if you are going somewhere hot avoid black clothes. The lighter the colour the better. Annoying really as I think black is 'cool'. Not necessarily, Bren.

Re: Any advice how to ride with a broken 5th metatarsal on your right foot?

Depends a bit on what kind of bike and what type of riding you'll be doing. Sports bike riding, no problem, almost no need to use the back brake at all if you can't manage it. Same goes for many street/road bikes - you can get away without the rear brake in many situations of course. Or maybe you ha...

Re: Scorpa T-ride 250F 2008

Go on, someone - buy this little beauty. Could be a while before another one of these comes up in great nick with low mileage.

If it was French registered and in my area I'd be buying it no question.

Re: Ural's, I think

Speaking of older Russsian vehicle I still have a yearning for a Lada Niva, esp the new Bronco model I think it is, if I could get one new in the UK for a resonable price I think actually would, a 2020 vehicle that you do not need a laptop to service, now that is a novelty. Maybe also take a look a...

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

Real despair comes from knowing that Boris and the gang were considered the best choice at the General Election which shows how inept the other parties were. Jeremy Corbin and the Labour party top brass should hang their heads in shame. I understand exactly what you're saying, Toni. For many a Labo...

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

I am sure that JMR’s role is too make the rest of the Tory party look slightly less like the bunch of stuck up gormless twats they really are. Good theory. Maybe. In previous administrations it would have been crazy to put up someone like him as a prominent spokesperson with regular TV coverage. Mo...

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

I watched Johnson at the Committee yesterday. It was cringingly embarrassing. If a CEO gave a performance like that at a board meeting they would be out the door like a shot. This keeps happening. Just at the moment of greatest crises, we have the leaders least fit for purpose. Of course he was what...

"Johnson tugged his hair and suggested it would be helpful if only those who definitely had the virus should ask for a test" :lol: Good piece by John Crace, as usual: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/sep/16/boris-johnson-is-tested-on-covid-and-brexit-his-specialist-subjects-of-ignorance

Re: Ural's, I think

It will be truly awful, mechanically and dynamically. You will be out-dragged by Fiat 500s, but they will be dry and warm while you will be wet and cold. All the disadvantages of a motorbike and none of the advantages of a car, with the excitement of motorcycling (i.e. 2 wheels) removed. Buy it only...
