    Still a longer queue in the non EU passports bit tho

    We were all directed to the EU biometric lines at Alicante airport Saturday. We’ll see what happens at the end of the transition period.🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

    Flew out of Cardiff airport to Spain yesterday one step ahead of Dennis. Woke up thus morning to the news people down the road had been evacuated. And if the Taff had risen a couple of more inches we would have been flooded 😟😟. Rivers going down now so hopefully we’ve been lucky. 🤞🤞

  • First shop bought board was 1973ish by 1978 I had a G&S fibreflex team rider. Fantastic board, a mint one came up on ebay. I bid on it for a while but in the end it went for over £400 !! A bit to much for a bit of nostalgia, for me anyway 😁

  • No it isn’t. Or at least it’s not supposed to be

    ??? Of course it’s indended to be taken after some study.

  • 22/24. Although a couple of those were educated guesses. But your score coming into it cold is irrelevant. The intention is to take the test after a period of study, something to show at least a bit of commitment to your new country. I’m sure plenty of other countries have similar tests.

    I’m more likely to buy a bike if I like the colour rather than if it has the latest must have geometry.

    Neil Hamilton getting elected as an assembly member is between him and his constituents. Perhaps he’s doing a good job and their happy ? I’ve no idea and neither do you I suspect.
    This list seems to show he’s not even close to being our most expensive member.

  • Does it have to be new ? If your ok with S/H I can reccomend what ive got obviously 😉 A Transition Vanquish would suit your needs perfectly. This one on ebay gives you an idea of whats out there.

  • but it seems she thinks she is obligated.

    This is were it’s going wrong, she isn’t obligated. And somehow you have to get that through to your wife. If both of you were happy to have him then fine, but as it’s a struggle already things will only get worse, much worse. He needs to be in sheltered accommodation. If there’s none available…[Read more]

  • I’d heard about these but never really believed they existed.

  • taxi25 replied to the topic Nukeproof Scout 290 in the forum Bike Forum 2 weeks ago

    I had the pre geometry update model. Really liked it and it rode well. But it was stiff, compliant isn’t the word I’d use to describe it.

  • That’s what I’m running aswell. Take the opportunity to experiment with your tyre pressures, NN go from pretty rubbish to pretty good if ypu get the pressure right.

  • Sometimes whats best for the parents is also best for a child. Yes there is an argument that working through a child’s formative years might not be ideal. But so are financial difficulties, and more importantly IMHO is the parents mental well being, work for many provides not only money but good mental health. If your not strong you can’t be there…[Read more]

  • Nope, majority of people will charge overnight at home.

    That’s assuming your able to plug your car in when you get home. I haven’t got off road parking nor do many people. Solutions could be found, but it’ll take massive investment in “public” charging points.

    No one is promoting it.

    How about promoting violence.

    I’m not advising death squads but perhaps a good old fashioned kicking and a tumble down some stairs would shut them up, or at the least leave them eating through a straw for a good few months.

  • taxi25 replied to the topic Brexit 2020+ in the forum Chat Forum 2 weeks ago

    This thread is going down the crapper based on some of the vituperative posts above.

    100% it’s total c$%p now, shut it down and reopen MG’s thread. This is beyond the pail regardless of the morons on the vide.

  • Or in other words, how do you know what went on between Daffy and his family to generate those comments?

    I don’t, no more than anyone who comments on anything their not directly involved with. But if someone posts something on an open forum it invites discussion. Isn’t that the whole point of this place ??

  • Therefore, in their minds, he’s a ****, and they voted for Brexit to try to get even with him for making a go of his life.

    I doubt that was the case, I’m sure they were brexit supporters irrespective of Daffy. More likely the comments made were an angry reaction to what they felt was Daffy’s patronising lectures about the negatives of the c…[Read more]
