Thread: Good news thread.

Me and the Missus went to B and Q today to buy some things. As we walked away from the van, I noticed a small motorbike carrying two youths, with a weird number plate, I commented to her indoors re the illegal plate, and as we watched they went straight to my van and started to get in with a large screwdriver..............

At that I legged it back, about a hundred yards, with the Missus howling at them. As I got there the pillion was back on the bike, but they had to go around the hedges on the car park.....I went through em.........I had them, thought I............ only to be threatened with a 12" screwdriver. Decision made ..........leave it, even if I had got them off the bike, I didn't fancy that in my tripes.........LOL

Good News ??????

Yeah, I still got my Van........smile d

I got them from Hobby King Steven. They are 1/6th scale

I had ordered some from probuild on back order, called Miracle 1/6th pilots, but they cancelled the order on me.

The ones from Hobby King are not quite the same but are a close enough alternative.

Here's a miracle one in the Moth.

The Boys have settled in, and with a change of clothes and some facial hair nurturing, seem better suited to flying than cloning.

I could, Dwain, but what scoop? I could make one in plastic, facing backwards. Normally I'd make scoops in aluminium!

Martin

My reply was aimed at Ernie really Mate...................blush

but in your case lower and further back sounds right, what with Rx being pretty light these days.

I had a similar prob with the Cessna120 all covered in chrome film (actual metal), so I put the RX in the Cabin.

Can You hide it in the scoop under the fuselage, the price being not clad the scoop but simulate metal with paint ???

Thread: Is it now time for cyclists to wear an identifier and pay a tax?
22/06/2019 00:06:12

Yes, that is the problem we would have here, the roads were designed for horse and cart, before the horseless carriage and even Bicycles were thought of. So our only hope would be for separation. The Cycle paths we have today are sometimes just a line painted on the road, and 50% of the time I have to dodge out into faster moving traffic to get round a car parked in my bit. Also, a lot of people don't know that all tho it's available, it's not compulsory to use a cycle lane, and as already mentioned some are dire and the road is better.

It would be imposdible really, but in an ideal world if we could be put with a cyclist on a bike, walk with pedestrians, sit in truck for a day, ride in a slow moving tractor, out with a motorbike rider, on horseback for a day each.......we would learn a lot more from each persective and have patience and empathy for all othet road users.

And this would rule out any ideas of imposing extra taxes on road using groups as just a knee-jerk reaction.

This does happen mate, but is not widely publicised, mainly between cycles and Lorries/Wagons. Both parties report benefits.

Dwain, the quote you've attributed to me bears no resemblance to the original replies, I'm sure you know what I mean by an "identifier".

I appreciate the link but I asked if the membership fee is used entirely for the cover in response to Will-O asking how the money could be generated.

I know doc, just pullin yer leg.......kiss

The money to get the infrastructure seen in my video link would have to come from the Government, and would be a massive upheaval and need a drastic change in peoples outlook on things, to give cyclists priority on the roads.

British cycling (£24), and cycling Uk (£45). Provide ins plus other benefits such as lobbying and support for the changes needed to make cycling safer for everyone. Cycling is safe, but peoples perception of it keeps them off a bike.

It would be great if this is what we had in the UK. Take time to watch especially at junctions and side roads where Cyclists have Priority over cars.

the identifier question has been largely avoided.

Educate me.

If you need to identify me as a cyclist, that's easy.................I'm the One on the bike, wearing the funny hat with a camera on it................surprise

1. As a cyclist I pay £45 for insurance with cycling UK (formerly the CTC) Ins - Check

2. VED is based on emissions, I produce none while Cycling (unless you want to tax my Farts) Tax - Check

3. I pay for the roads I use through my Council tax. Tax - Check.

Benefits...I am fitter, less stressed, and have more patience with my fellow Humans. heart

What do you say to the people who do not own a car re item 3 ??

It's on page 4 doc, cheeky......... I just put it in the order of vulnerability. When I walk to the shops, I look out for cars as I cross the road, as that is common sense.
