    Ahhh. This is bringing back so memories of the Army. Spotting lit ciggies. Bogus 'tail end charlies'. Etc, etc. No matter. The major lesson is (For bikers) is that; Everyone is out to kill you. For almost 40 years of having a full bike licence. I'm still alive!

    Don't worry. I wasn't having a go. The odd thing was. Visibility was one of the first lessons I learned when I joined the Army in '78. We were on a night exercise. Two groups had to move from one place to another (I was in one of the groups). One group would move. The other would try to spot them. The instructors sent up a flare (for each group). At the end of the exercise, we were asked about what we saw. Both groups said that the thing that was most noticed was: Everyone diving for cover (Motion). That lesson has stayed with me ever since. Even now. I don't wear cammo for games.

    As a biker. I'd like to answer that one. Why don't bikers like to wear hi-vis clothing? The answer is: It doesn't work. Now think about it. We're all airsofters here. We're all sneeking around in the woods looking for targets. Ask yourself. What's the biggest thing that gives your 'target' away? The answer is: Motion. Secondly. I don't switch on my headlight during the day. Why? It doesn't work. What's one more light in a sea of lights? It doesn't stand out (but a blank 'hole' does). As for the accident I had. The reason it happened is simple. The Sun was low in the sky and I was riding downhill, so the Sun was directly behind me. The driver was looking directly into the Sun. He wouldn't have seen me, even if I was dressed as a day-glo budgie from Windscale (Although we didn't realise this until afterwards).

    Here's ironic for you. About 20 years ago. I was out riding my bike, when some cager pulled out in front of me. I hit the anchors. The rear wheel locked up and I skidded (sideways) into the car. The impact speed was really low and no real damage was done, but that's not the point. I came to a stop at the drivers door. I looked down at the driver who looked very sheepish. The driver was a member of the same bike club as I was! Now. That's ironic!

    Pictures of Airsoft Stuff You Just Bought

    I admit. I've been on a bit of a spending spree as of late. Mega chuffed with the grenade launcher added to my G36 (loaded with 40Mikes). I found that I couldn't use my drum mag and the grenade launcher at the same time. So I've bought a pistol launcher and pouches for more grenades. Carnage ahoy!

    You really had my interest until I looked at the 2002 model. I've a 'thing' for the 1959. It looks like a Triumph Vitesse on steroids! I had 2 Triumph 13/60 Heralds. The resemblance to the 1959 Buick LeSabre is noticeable.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    An Aprilia RS50 that I rebuilt and sold two years ago was spotted on Ebay today. It was almost exactly the same condition as I sold it. Considering that it was ridden by a 16'er, I'm impressed. It just goes to show that not all teenagers are wasters!

    Oh Lordy. Port and Sherry. I've a weak spot for both of them.

    I think you mis-understood me. The event is un-accesible because of the insurance.

    Jeeze. That's so ironic. She talks about accesibility and gets an award for it. She can't attend because of accesibility.

    I had one of those in a Reliant 3-wheeler. It would go up the road for 100 yards and then conk out. I'd restart the engine. Go up the road for 100 yards and the engine would conk out again. It turned out that the cone of the fuel filter had broken in half. The end was lodged in the end of the fuel pipe, restricting the flow. I removed the broken parts and all was well again.

    Over a period of 15 years. I had 4 Reliant 3-wheelers. The first one fell apart faster than I could fix it. The second one, the gearbox went. The third one I sold as it was a saloon and I didn't like the 'letterbox' boot. The fourth one, the head gasket went. 15 years of amazing fun.

    I had a Rialto saloon. I hated the silly 'letterbox' sized hatch for the boot. It was a right faff; Opening the hatch, then going inside to drop the rear seats so I could get my Dragunov in. At least with the Estates, I could do it all from the back. I ran Reliants for 15 years!

    I've had this before and I refused to pay it. I sold my old Reliant 3-wheeler (Don't laugh. They were great!) to somebody in Bristol. I didn't cancel the remaining insurance. The new owner insured the Reliant. A couple of weeks later, the insurance called me and asked why I hadn't canelled the remaining insurance. I told them that it was cheaper to let the remaining insurance lapse, than it was to cancel it. The insurance company blathered on about a possible claim being levelled on my insurance on the Reliant, rather than the new owners. I replied that I wasn't interested on the grounds that I didn't own the Reliant, nor was I driving it. I still wasn't going to pay the cancellation fee. I got a refund for the remaining insurance. You've got to play hardball with insurance companies.

    Sounds like the North Devon link road. I avoid it like the plague. There's a junction like you describe. Cars are forever getting T-boned.
