Re: Four friends fook about in france

Fantastic day. Thanks a lot Stevey. Yes, Phil did take the smoker - I know because I have a sore throat tonight! And it's bloody loud too. Lots of stupid slippery ascents and falls. Matt ended up at 45 degrees with his head wedged between three tree trunks. Steve had a spectacular cross-rut, and I d...

Re: Brexit finally happens

It's so ironic that brexiters have decided to believe that leaving the EU gives them freedom, when it is the very freedoms conferred upon them by years of EU membership that they are about to lose. Dave that is a completely false assumption, no socio-political system of government/control/legislati...

Re: Bethany Ride in Canada

Good stuff. I suppose the bears bugger off when they hear the bikes? Or do you ever see them?

I really liked Ontario, especially just above the lake, but bears were a constant issue camping at night.

Re: Brexit finally happens

Not really, as a non-EU citizen you will be subject to the normal visa regulations as all other non EU tourists, ie 90 days in 180. Then the EU healthcards that give you entitlement to healthcare all over europe, no more. If you own property within the EU, you can't live there without seeking resid...

Re: Brexit finally happens

Hiya Dave …. yes I plead guilty to unfortunately possessing a false sense of optimism .. and also to being born with a misplaced commitment to loyalty to people and firms that dont deserve it .. as well as believing in the goodness of mankind .. all of which often leave me in great distress and an ...

Re: Brexit finally happens

but feel a bit aggrieved to `hear` them whinge about their present temporary situation, which I feel sure will improve. It's not temporary, Gary. You don't seem to be aware that before brexit I am an EU member state citizen. After brexit I am a TCN (third country national) living within the EU. Tha...

Re: Brexit finally happens

Is this post(s) still going PmRf4q8tYAJxfVKVb6.gif The problem is, a wafer thin majority of the electorate four years ago voted for a decade or more of disruption to their own economy and culture. So don't be surprised that others have a problem with that. Brexit ain't going away for a LONG time. Y...

Re: Today I are mainly listening to ...

Rush RIP Neil Peart He was a proper ADV rider too. Went on a long distance ride around America on a GS after his wife died. I was never a Rush fan, and I hate his Ayn Rand-inspired lyrics, but Peart was one of the most talented drummers of his time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSToKcbWz1k[media...
