Still going to call it Tymmies Wagon, and this is a Tymmies wagon report. Please forum Admins move if inapppropriate. Started here got a call on the cb i had a load! No brakes on the down hill part, almost a runaway! regained control by sliding into the pallet the KLR motor came on! @Mess take note, solid oak good pallet! Good time for an inhailer.

  3. I had to go to the local postal sorting office to return 2 parcels that were delivered to me over the last few weeks, meant for someone in Colchester, but the post office scratched out their post code and put mine instead. The post office have a single phone line for the public that has a 30 minute wait at the moment. They will not release any email addresses, you go round and round their website when you hit the contact us button as it just suggests solutions to problems but never gives you any contact details. I finally found an online form which I filled in and submitted twice but it refuse

  4. Its the best weekend here in a long time but no bike riding for us. I think if we went out together we'd get pulled.

  5. Against my better judgement, my buddy Phil and I are going to attempt a ride from Denver to Sacramento, California beginning on 8 April, 2021. April is the snowiest month for our area, so we're hoping there will be no major snowstorms happening that week. It'll be chilly both at altitude and in the deserts of Nevada and Utah as we head west. Basic route is pictured below. 1,400 miles each direction with about 2-1/2 days each way to complete the trip with 2-3 days in Sacramento area. As usual, anyone that wants to join us is welcome - just let me know.

  7. Pete was asking about Gold beach and the WW2 Normandy invasion by the allies. I toured around the beaches in 2019 when I was on my way back up through France to get the ferry at Cherbourg. I had a bit of time on my hands and stayed overnight in Port en Bessin and then toured the beaches and sites of interest before getting the ferry back to UK. If anyone else has done the same bung your photos up here...............

  11. Thanks - I think we'll need a fair bit of luck for this ride to even happen. If the forecast at time of departure calls for any snow, we'll have to delay it. Simply can't ride in deep snow.

  12. I found this photo last night. A couple of years ago we're coming back up through France on back roads, we found a cafe in this small village and after a bit of very bad French and some arm waving we sat down outside to eat. We were really just wanting a snack but in true French fashion we got the full works and for only 13 euros including beer brewed on the premises, I don't have a photo of the main course or pudding but this was just the starter

  15. During the 1st lockdown the roads I used to travel to my deliveries where deserted, getting into and out of Reading was a dream, saved me hours!.......the M11 & M25 where empty,, sit at 70mph for the whole duration of the trip, now, the roads around here seem as busy as they ever where.

  19. Lets just say of particular interest then. I've lived in this flat bit of England all my life and know little of the pits other than what was in the news with all the strikes and being introduced to colliery bands by my northern misses family.

  22. Trip will include stops at Cedar City, Utah, Eureka, NV, Lake Tahoe / Reno and a few National Parks along the way. If the weather holds out, it should be a fantastic ride to begin our season. If the weather doesn't cooperate, then it'll suck more balls than have ever been sucked on a bike trip. It will be memorable either way.

  26. Yep, no parts of England, Wales and Scotland where spared, and associated industries where killed too, Dosco (mining machinery), Dowty, Hollybank ( both hydraulic support companies) and Davis Derby (electrical) lost their main customer, even local haulage firms went to the wall, the closing of the mines effected so many other workers, left most without a future.

  28. Only on ones like that which have elevations rather than plan views. My Petticoat Lane market cross section drawing of a trapped road gulley has about 15 coat hangers wedged in it, because that is what the traders do with them rather than take them home, I think i may have put some hyperdermics in there as well, as the drug users get rid of them that way. When we were still drawing by hand on tracing paper I had a punk rocker with a mohawk walking across the road with a large stereo on his shoulder. I also did a proper non technical drawing to show my proposals for a market square many m

  29. It's not so bad now, about 10% unemployment rate, but when the mines where closing down in the 90,s the rate was high, a lot of 55+ years of age men, and their prospects where not good, only ever worked in the mining industry, and the skills they had learned working underground where bugger all use in any other jobs, so alot them lived on their redundancy money till they became pensioners, or died.

  35. There's a secret tunnel that starts in Bethnal Green Road. It used to be in the middle of a traffic island, but the footway was built out around it. It is now between these cycle hire racks https://goo.gl/maps/ecoRLjTFC2dzDvc38 It runs to Whitehall amongst other places, a big network. Big enough for a car to drive along if you could get it down there in the first place. A journalist got down there and took pictures in the 70s and wrote an article about them. When I find the link I will post it. They placed gates along it after he did that to stop it happening again. I and a colleague

  42. Swap it for a fresh one this week......I can say to the coppers (if it happens) I have been shopping for essentials .....don't want to give them any chance of dishing out a fine. My German pal says they are in Lockdown (Oldenburg) in his area, so how can he visit his parents, go for a ride on his scoot, have a coffee with his knock off at a cafe?.......that does not seem like Lockdown to me.

  43. I hope to get out for a hour later, I have (it's a fortnight old) a loaf in my topbox incase I get stopped, which I doubt,, as even in normal times a police car is not seen very often around here.

  45. Only that it was one of the 5 designated beaches, right in the centre between Juno and Omaha... around Arromanches. The problem with visiting the beaches today is that they bear no resemblance to what they did 10 or 15 years ago, let alone 77 years ago, coastal erosion has completer remodelled the landscape, though I believe you can still see the remains of the Mulberry harbours, one of which would have been on Gold Beach, the Other on Omaha. As a kid I studied the naval engagements surrounding D-Day ( obsessed by boats even then. so I could probably tell you what ships bombarded and th

  47. Had a tax reminder for the XR this morning and i noticed it says on it "This vehicle needs an appropriate MOT certificate" when i checks it was right it runs out tomorrow, fucking great a valid excuse to ride the bike i thinks, so phones the place i take it hoping because its raining he'll have a cancellation and fit me in. Sure enough he had three cancellations, i thank god for pansies as gets my riding gear on and off i go straight up the Rhondda Valley a horrible place to drive or ride through even in lockdown the traffic is busy. All goes well with the MOT and its a gentle ride home along
