I did a 150mile round trip in my dear owd SE5, delivering a French Velosolex 3800 moped...(don't ask! :lol: ) to a chap in Cleckheaton, nr. Bradford, this Friday afternoon.

SE5A SE London

Well done on the insurance - just be aware that if regular, modern car insurance lapses by 2yrs. or more, any no claims discount that has been built up is lost! I recently experienced this with a 2005 Honda Civic Sport that I ended up with for 6mths. The quotes were ridiculous.............despite me...

The Ashes.

Cricket should be in the Guinness Book of Records for the most boring game in the world. :w It's anything but!...It's chess with human chess pieces. It's also one of the very rare team games that is also an individual game. It is also a game that can be played at 'village green' level by anyone fro...

Hello from the south of France

I'm not so sure about the wine, well not in my area. We've got Gaillac and Fronton, and I wouldn't really chose to drink either of them :mrgreen: There are a couple of good Fronton, but it's generally headache material. Unfortunately, I "learned" wine in Bordeaux, I used to work for a Négociant up ...

MOT exemption

For the first time in 10 to 11yrs., I let the MOT's lapse on both the Herald & Scimitar earlier this year - one gets taxed beginning of Oct. & the other beginning of November. I let them lapse primarily because from reading info. online it seemed to be the easiest way of registering them both as 'MO...

Famous Scimitar owners

That's interesting, Neil.....a lot of those bands started out at school - famously, Genesis at Charterhouse, I think....I seem to remember the Who had their origins in school - forget which one.
