  1. Carwash Spots

    A few recent different cars. Sorry for the blurred double E-type shot Pics should be like the first two now due to new phone The Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster was just driving past
  2. Carwash Spots

    I see lots of nice metal from my office in London with it's view over a hand cash wash () and hadn't thought of posting them. But after seeing these two today perhaps I should.There's some nice cars around (it's London after all) but there's a bit of a cheat as we have this company near by : www.classiccarclub.co.uk/privatemembers/fleet I saw the '64 Jenson C-V8 this morning and now currently their '64 E-Type is going through. Makes a change from all the Addison Lee vehicles
  3. Dream bike - R1M

    A proper tool. Only seen positive reports and I'm sure you'll love it. Did you just not sync with the MT10? Wrong style?
  4. VR46 - Enduro Accident

    Legend status reinforced ... again.
  5. Speed with Guy Martin: F1 Special

    As always he seemed to graft hard and hence did well. I love his passion, commitment and lack of ego.
  6. VR46 - Enduro Accident

    Passed fit today. Incredible!
  7. F1 2017

    Just back from steak and ribs. Bollocks to that rabbit food.
  8. Bugatti Chiron

    Have you seen some of the anticipated figures?! Acceleration I get ... but can you really use this sort of power? "Citing information it claims to have received from a customer presentation, ProDriver magazine reports that the Chiron will top out at 467 kilometers per hour – that's over 290 miles per hour, hitting 62 along the way in just 2.2 seconds. Its speedometer is said to run all the way up to 500 km/h (311 mph). Finding another 22 miles at those speeds is no mean feat. And to get there, the engineers in Molsheim are tipped to have squeezed 1,500 horsepower and an equal number of newton-meters of torque (1,106 lb-ft by our standards) into the two-seatsupercar. Those figures are expected to come in part thanks to a pair of electric turbochargers (and another couple of conventional ones) bolted to the 8.0-liter W16 engine. Of course none of that will come cheap, with a price tag said to start at a cool 2 million euros ($2.17m at current exchange rates). Bugatti is tipped to make only 100 examples every year for the next five. Of those, 130 units have reportedly already been spoken for, sight unseen."

    Incredible. Imagine what that rubber went through!
  10. ...and what would you know about it?!?
  11. Google Ads so clever I've now got wallet adverts coming up in Facebook e.g. https://vanacci.com/collections/carbon-wallets Clever aside from the fact I'm not after one!
  12. expensive numberplates

    Saw this yesterday on the M25. Sounded great as he accelerated away.
  13. If my phone goes down then I'd have bigger concerns than loyalty cards. I don't feel the need to carry more than a credit card, debit card and cash Sometimes I need a couple of ID cards but a few cards with the notes folder around then jut slips in the pocket without any bulk. The one downside is it takes a little while to stop patting yourself down looking for your wallet.
  14. I switched to a money clip (used it for notes and cards) years ago .... and then one day forgot the clip so since then I just have notes folded around the cards. All getting used less due to Android pay.
  15. VR46 - Enduro Accident

    I will obviously tarnish the championship. I hope he's not out for too long.
  16. Slovakiaring : 1st - 3rd Sept '17

    JonC and I did it (along with a group of others) and had great fun. Mix it in with AK47's/Glocks/etc, beer and a vibe that everyone is up for a laugh and these trips are way more than just track days .... however that is the main reason for going! The Slovakiaring is right up there with the most technical tracks I know. I took a while to learn it and was still a real challenge after three days. I think it will become a more common names on big race calendars....and the cafe in the paddock sells pints for €1
  17. JonC, myself and some buddies have just booked. Anyone else interested?
  18. New pants please

    Bike vid : 100% agree with your comments. I've used the "be able to stop" comment numerous times to biek mates but it doesn't seem to register
  19. New pants please

    He must have been 80 with that huge trailer and weight on the very back of it. Luckily no one else involved.
  20. Wheelie To Die For....

    Ooops meant to say "losing your life" but same sentiment I'm sure it did mean something to him but too many people distance themselves from reality in moments of silliness. I was once at an AMD rolling road day in Bicester and they had Thames Valley Police there. They were collecting for a charity which looks after kids who have lost parents in RTA's. They pointed out that many people (men in general) drive pretty sensibly when their kids are in the car .... but when on their own the mindset is that the children are safe at home and they overstep the mark. Tragic for all affected.
  21. Wheelie To Die For....

    That's a really cheap and worthless way of using your life
  22. Carwash Spots

    Either a clown bike taxi or I wondered if it was a camera bike where the cameraman can site backwards etc.
  23. Carwash Spots

    I'll not be in the office for a couple of weeks so the final pics for a bit. A lovely stag and also a random passing motorbike with the weirdest pillion "pegs" I've ever seen!
  24. Carwash Spots

    Agreed. I thought it worth an arse shot too
  25. New pants please

    Jeez. That's a big drop. It looks banged up before the fall so maybe no airbag on landing. Eeek
