Re: Brexit finally happens

Whilst I am aware that a lot of very intelligent people promoted and voted for Brexit this lady obviously was not one of them.

Re: Brexit finally happens

Brilliant the soaraway Sun likens Brexit to an event that saw England taken over by a foreign power, the population virtually halved and most of the rest living in virtual slavery, with only the rich having much chance of a decent life. Perhaps they are trying to tell us something. :lol:

Re: Brexit finally happens

I am sorry but I suspect that those who voted Leave are going to hear the words ‘I told you so’ a lot in the coming months and years. It will not take long for some to realise what they have lost, although others will say that the cost is worth it. It also will not take that long for many people to ...

Re: Brexit finally happens

The problem that many of us who voted Remain have is that whilst we can see the disadvantages of voting leave ( for instance a recent article in Newsweek concluded that the consequences of voting leave have already cost the UK more than our contributions for the entire 47 years that we were members)...

Re: CCM GP 450......was it any good?

I think Pete is spot on. Once they had starting selling the Spitfires CCM lost interest in the GP450 and their owners the customer service I had in the last three months was abysmal. Austin Clews honestly told me that it was okay that I had had to wait three months to get my engine sorted as he had ...

Re: Zero Review

There is a good review of the SR/F in the latest Road (MAG news) by someone who was so impressed he bought one. If I had the money I would be tempted, although the 85mpg I get from commuting on the Himalayan means that I have to have the bike for a very long while before it makes any kind of financi...

Re: Petrol: supermarket vs shell etc

I think the easy way to calculate it is to work out the percentage improvement in mpg versus the percentage price rise. This way is does not matter if you work out the price in litres or gallons. Eg. My Himmy does roughly 80mpg on Sainsbury’s unleaded and 85mpg on their super unleaded. So 85/80 = 1....

Re: Bug Out Bikes

The Himalayan comes pretty close, or an early BM GS 650 twin with kick start. A BSA M20, when you look at what they survived in WW2 they should cope with the post Brexit apocalypse.
