Re: NHS and other similar workers putting it on the line for us

Re: Tyres...Mefo v Mitas v MotOz????

Thanks.

Not fitted the tyres yet...life's a bit 'home-based' at the moment.

But a new office to paint, polytunnel coming for the garden, dogs to walk and my two main work outlets are going to keep publishing through the crisis, so I'm luckier than most.

Re: covid dystopia

The vile Kirsty 'three houses' All-slop has been writing articles about how she brought her infected family down to Devon from London, then had a visit from her sister, who then cleared off to Scotland.

Re: Fantasy Garage

Good game... I remember we had one of those HD Cafe Racers in stock as a new bike at Three Cross Motorcycles in the late 1970s. It attracted no interest AT ALL.
