    Celebrating the UK border in Ireland would never go down well with nationalists,

    I think that counts as classic understatement :)

    Comments from DUP in the debate show they are away with the fucking fairies - two tier policing to the detriment of unionists, do not approve of the way these people have expressed their anger. But their fears and concerns are real. Sinn Fein have shown “a barrage of disrespect” to Northern Ireland’s centenary. Away to fuck.

    Good Friday is a bit early for egg action, Day of fasting and abstinence innit, but I’ll give it a go

    Well, the brakes work fine. Definitely possible to stop sooner. Found it is incredibly easy to lock the rear wheel with a quick downshift and get a bit of a skid.

    When you kick down the gears are you blipping the throttle? The idea being to match engine speed down the gear box and avoid locking the back wheel, which can be quite fun but limits braking efficiency.

    The Barton one is also quite stiff. I’ve got a very lightly used one (maybe four wears) if you want to try it, 24mm in blue. I posted a picture a few months ago of it on a Magrette- wasn’t a lairy enough blue for me.

    Is there a forum approved carpenter / furniture maker for sw London- Wimbledon? Got some bathroom fittings and a big mirror cabinet combo where the veneer is starting to go. Mrs is thinking of replacing but repair would be preferable in my book.

    He also had shown himself to be a bit of a blow in with limited links to London thus undermining his super bloke, you know he walked around Afghanistan, credibility / middle class wankfest bromance iirc

    Yes if you’re about to get tacco’ed use your time to manoeuvre but it’s real worth is as an early deterrent and not beep beep but really stand on the fecker and tbh if you can brake you should be able to use the horn as well (unless you’re on a scooter), if anything it may reduce the closing speeds at the point of collision :)
    I’m from the roadcraft school of using the audible warning as much as necessary and if in doubt use it.
    Loud pipes though are just a fucking nuisance.

    That is the sort of scenario where one should also be covering the horn as well. As soon as there’s any drift from the car long protracted use of the audible warning, obviously whilst braking hard and shitting ones self. People seem a bit reluctant to use the horn on bikes but they’re good for focusing driver’s minds

    None of them, they’re a pain in the arse with constant updates and rarely seem to just work without issue. Also when you do have an issue the stock answer is “...it’s your wifi...” regardless of the problem. Wish I’d bought something else tbh.
