It never rains in sunny Barnsley  :)

This is why there are so many dark faces about. It feels like a home from home. :)
Noooo......not in Barnsley there aren't.  :)

Surrounding areas...yes.


Perhaps I'm confusing Barnsley with Bradford........which may have one or two 'exotically coloured' residents.

Is this the milk float Jag?

Looks nice if it's the one I think it is. :y

Ah. No. I'm thinking of the I - Pace. Which looks nice enough but starts at around 70,000.

Danni Pedrosa the long time nearly man in the big class of MotoGP announced his retirement after last weeks GP race.His diminutive size counted against him in some ways for muscling the bikes around the track and he always seemed very fragile breaking bones/getting otherwise injured practically by looking at an accident never mind having one.

I would think that his lack of weight gave the bike a better power to weight ratio. The more weight the slower the bike. :)

We had five minutes of drizzle so light it was barely noticeable. Apparently its going to get hotter next week.
Im fed up with it now. The novelty has really worn off:(

If you were still fit enough to ride a large capacity motorcycle you wouldn't say that. :)

The only ones who might give it a tug are traffic cops, not your common or garden plod. When was the last time you saw a proper traffic cop?

The new MOT test has something in it about excessively loud exhausts IIRC, but I'll bet there is no change in the amount of knobs who drive around with a baked bean tin sticking out the back. People can, more or less, do as they like.

This is England.....not North Korea. ::)
I know. In North Korea people are arrested and jailed for breaking the law.

Yes. The little fat man in charge is not very nice. :)
I think he runs this forum very well.  :)

Yes...but more of a dictator than the nice young man from North Korea. :)

By the way, when you next vislt North Korea I suggest you leave the whippet back home in Barnsleywakefield. He'll be on the menu if you don't. :)

It's not really much of a surprise the EU 'wants it's own way'

We decided to leave. Twenty seven others have decided to stay. Not rocket science really.

When we do finally leave I'm starting to  think NO DEAL is preferable. At least we can leave with some dignity and then figure out what to do after the dust has settled. Not ideal by any stretch of the imagination but........ :-X

BRINO which Theresa May is trying to persuade us is really BREXIT MEANS BREXIT essentially means we leave the EU like a whipped dog with it's tail between it's legs.

A total clustertf*uck. :-\

Can't remember seeing any footage of it[it's so long ago now]but it is said that Barry Sheene had a hole in the chin bar of his crash helmet so he could have a fag while sat on the grid without having the trouble of taking his helmet off.

Rumour has it 'Bazza' had a hole cut in the front of his leathers so a  grid girl could straddle him before the flag dropped. ;) :D

Of course, grid girls have now been banned from F1 because the hairy armpit feminist groups don't like pretty girls enjoying themselves. :-\

As I mentioned in another thread recently - In 1985 Keke Rosberg did a lap of the old Silverstone circuit, with a slow puncture in a rear tyre, and a track that hadnt completely dried from earlier rain. His speed over the lap as an average of 160.9 mph !
When he got back to the pits, he got out of the car and lit up a ciggy. Then jumped back in the car and did another lap at the same speed, just for fun.
1985 seems like a different planet now::)

It is.

Presumably 1985 was the era of 'turbo F1' with 1000 BHP and more. :y :y

My only experience of this was with my 2 year old Seat Altea XL, used as a taxi. 135k miles on it with full Seat service history. When I threw it back I did the following to it...

1. Replaced drivers seat base foam. It had collapsed.
2. Removed and washed the rear seat covers. The interior was a medium grey which waterstained badly.
3. Replaced the undertrays. Fully loaded it used to catch the back end of them on speed humps.
4. Gave it a thorough wash and polish.
5. Replaced the binnacle cover. Had a notch cut into it for taxi wiring.

All the above cost about 120 and time.

The bloke who inspected it simply looked around it taking notes and took a few general pictures of the car. His only immediate concern was that the car was driving, taxed, MoT'd where applicable and that the tyres were legal.

Stone chips and the like are acceptable if comesurate with mileage. Any obvious damage or signs of neglect will cost you dearly and with a PCP, any excess mileage charges will see your bank balance battered.

If I may be so bold, look at the numbers for HP over a 4/5 years and hand it back at the halfway point. Check the small print and ask the question directly. But you should save most of the deposit/better interest/no mileage limitations...

HTH :y

What of the outstanding balance?

Can this be done if a purchaser has made 50% or more of the payments?

He's invited Putin over in the autumn, what could possibly go wrong?

Perhaps they'll wrestle each other.


And Frankie goes to Hollywood will make a video of it. Two tribes part two.

Reagan and Chernenko, I think.......in part one.
