What you have to realise with the powers that be and
I worked with them for many years, is that they think
they are too far up the food chain to be bothered about
what you and I think or know, and that we are too thick or
frightened to even complain, it's a long time ago now
but one at least of our road designers did not have a
driving license, and others only used pedal cycles it's
most likely why we now have miles of unused cycle ways
narrowing roads and pushing other road users into
single file NR the middle of the road were head on
collisions are more likely.
No I am not a boy racer and do stick baring mistakes to
the law, at NR 60 years old self preservation is still high on
my priorities, I have driven many hundreds of thousands
of miles in or on things form a 50cc moped to a heavy
haulage vehicle plated at over 90 tons, it's just that
I see my safety zone being chipped away to justify congestion charging and road pricing.
Speaking of Police camera action, if you see the clip
that shows 3 horses on the Motorway the big black
bugger with the white blaze was mine but the incident
happened just just before I bought him.

Currently in Ralph's garage:
Clio 15 DCi 80, Kawasaki W800, Yamaha MT-07, LMS 5MT 3 1/2 inch Gauge.
