Re: What if.

Daveuprite has explained why Nigel Farage was so anxious to get a German passport for himself, and also why many of my friends in NI quietly got themselves RoI passports a year two back. All this was explained 'before the vote' but dismissed as project fear by those who thought we could have out cak...

Re: Kawasaki...our future is in the past.

If I'm honest, I could sure make use of those forward/rear facing indicators ! Much better than noticing the dash flasher, still on 3 miles down the road after turning. ;) As a small child I recall seeing a BMW motorbike with those in the handlebar end...first time I'd noticed indicators on a bike!
