Re: Adventure spec bashplate ktm 990 adv

I did think about doing that, but was worried about the nuts and bolts catching, and either bringing the bike to an eye-watering halt or just being driven up through the plate like nails.

Re: Out of the frying pan? The 53rd State is born ...

I bet the official version of the London stabbing will be 'someone with mental health issues'.

Laptop/tablet ban I feel would be more likely to be about someone either blowing an aircraft up, or somehow hacking its avionics.

Re: London Terror Attack

there's no shortage of armed police around Westminster...and they have dealt with the guy who was carrying a knife.

And people who think the police should be routinely armed should read this:

Re: good riddance

The 'victim' mentality is understandable...it's what encouraged McGuinness, Adams etc to join 'the cause', and did the same for countless others on both sides.
