"I wonder if there's an opportunity for victim impact statements or such thing.Perhaps if she was confronted with the devastation that she has caused to James, it might help her to understand the impact of her behaviour. It might also help James…"
"Regrettably, the minimum standard for police to go any further than a furtive glance is video. Even then, you will be asked to justify yourself in ways that no other road user would ever be asked to."
"Of note, the CarAdvice peeps were in the later group. Evidently, the firm running the event did not feel that causing grievous bodily harm to a member of the public earlier in the day was cause for cancelling the later wave."
"I've never had the opportunity to drive such a car.But I have ridden a Suzuki Hayabusa (world's fastest production motorcycle).If the McLaren is in the same league as the Suzuki (almost certainly), then it demands respect & critical…"
"I think there's an issue for businesses conducting tests/trials & ride days on public roads with the rest of us.There's little purpose to these cars on the public roads except for exceeding the speed limit, risky driving maneuvers…"
"Yeah, I got caught up in a discussion on Facebook about the victims of this collapse.
Yes, there are some consumers that have no doubt made some significant personal loses and that is very bad.
I just wanted to point out that there's no…"
"Painted like this, perhaps?"Shortly after I was attacked with a deadly weapon (the car), I managed to disarm my assailant by rendering the weapon inoperable. Still in shock, naturally I fled for my safety.""
Surly Pacer - My wet days ride. Built from old parts & groupset, it's a solid reliable bike without feeling like a wheelbarrow. It feels quick like a road bike should but I can bounce off gutters without expecting the crack of carbon!
Surly Steamroller - Fixed, silent & smooth. I often train on this bike. It keeps me pedalling.
Surly Big Dummy - This is my start & end of the working week commuter. It carries everything I need. On weekends it can be loaded up with my 9 & 7 year olds for a nice cruise to the pool or shops.
(Sold 2009)Surly Pugsley - I ride this monster truck of bikes on social mtb rides & the occassional enduro event. With 4" wide tyres and weighing around 40 pounds it will not be taking me to any podium finishes. But it always takes me to a happy place and sometimes I can surprise a few people with its capabilities.
(RIP 2009, It died that I might live)Salsa La Raza - My workhorse road bike. OX true temper steel tubing. I do my commuting, training & Sat morning rides with the Stanmore crew on this bike.
(Sold 2010)Ibis Silk Road - This is my bling machine. Full carbon frame & fork & everywhere else that reduces weight without reducing reliability or comfort. Only comes out on dry days when I really have to do my best. Last year it helped me knock an hour of my PB in the Alpine Classic.
Since I smashed the bike of a friend's older brother I've been obsessed with bicycles. 30 something years later it is my sport, my hobby, my pass-time & my business.
In 2009 I was nearly killed when I was run down on the M4. Two years later I'm nearly recovered. Lately I've been getting keen on cycling again. I always kept riding after bones mended but the mind takes longer.
