    I'm basing that on my own stuff, last time I checked. Oasis, Blur, U2, FSOL all early 90's, it's post 96 when vinyl stopped getting released. Not sure what happened early 90's with smaller bands. For £70 you should be able to get a 1st Jamaican press of Blackheart Man for example.

    £25 I'm talking about represses. Urban Hymns for example. It was a reply to a comment about the quality of some reissues.

    Pretty much any is not equal to all :)

    I never said all accidents were caused by speed!

    Junctions are a danger, I'm always checking for recognition from drivers in junctions to try and mitigate the risk but there's always the odd ones. Handling T Junctions are key to survival for motorbikes in London. I find if I've not been riding for a while my observations suffer until I have a few little reminders and get back to speed. I don't enjoy it much but it's transport not sport for me, there's never any opportunity to relax and open the throttle in town.

    I've definitely had some responsibility for every one of mine!

    I had an accident where a ped ran out at a crossing where I had a green traffic light. They were shocked and bruised, I had to have an op on my knee. I don't really want to rehash it but you're on the right track. They were put in the ambulance and I was questioned and breathalised before the policeman realised I had a pretty bad injury and was only walking and talking because of the adrenaline.

    My own conclusion as I lay in the ambulance was wishing I had been going a bit slower and a bit further from the kerb. I would normally have been.

    I've only got 2 pages into that report and I'm wondering what I'm doing riding a motorbike.

    If you ever t bone a car with a motorcycle you might live to think about the why's and wherefore's. It could have a significant effect on my statement if the dead could give an opinion.

    I don't want to derail this discussion but motorbikes were mentioned and the biggest safety problem with motorbikes is how fast they travel.

    One of the problems with push bike riding is the incentive to save speed because it requires effort to achieve. With motorbikes it's about self control when so much speed is on tap.

    In the situation being discussed a motorbike rider would rather stop the bike before the obstacle than pass behind the pedestrian because it's a simple risk reward calculation that doesn't cost much physical effort.

    Pretty much any accident you have on a motorcycle is caused by speed. Most experienced motorcyclists will admit that. In most of the cycling cases mentioned it's the same, lower speeds would have lead to less damage.

    Still in love with this one. Managed to wear the Sub last night, it's a better watch but the dial on the speedy just floats my boat. It's also a very subtle watch despite the extra thickness. I could go on about this watch all day!!

    Friends don't let friends buy fake watches :)

    If you wouldn't pay £500 for that watch without the Patek branding then it's a fake and you are throwing your money away. Save that money for the day you can buy an honest watch that speaks to you. If you posted the same watch with no branding for £200 I'd say it was a decent proposition.

    It doesn't bother me that people are wearing fake subs, doesn't eat into my enjoyment of my own watch.
