Re: 10 'facts' about motorways...

1. The L thing. Even before the latest relaxation, LGV/HGV L plates were allowed.
2. The M25 is not a ring road.

Re: 'Highest'?

so is that mental aspect something routinely covered in AD training? The nearest I can think of is recognising when there is unlikely to be an overtaking opportunity, so backing off. Yes. Perhaps I should have qualified that with 'through IAM and RoSPA'. Care to give some examples? [I know Rc has a...

Re: 'Highest'?

Oh, another: "the most complete advanced driving course available for civilian drivers" It might have been when it was written? It's hardly the biggest fib in the world to claim. I doubt some of these organisations have enough staff to be continually assessing their propaganda. Why would ...

Try GoodSam app?

I had a look at GoodSam - nice idea. Didn't fancy registering at the moment, so don't think I can see the AEDs.

FWIW, on the main screen of my phone I have:
The AA
OS Locate
Save a life (defib locations)
St John
Google maps
W3W
Torch
Camera
CitizenAid

I got excited with the Save a Life one, but the locations need adding/updating! OK if you live in NE or southern parts.

Re: Phone use (again )

AAMOI, OS locate gives me a two letter & six number location. https://support.landmark.co.uk/hc/en-gb/articles/206913765-National-Grid-Reference-Coordinate-Conversion says: 6 numbers are accurate to a 100m square Using Google maps (zoomed in as close as it will go) shows me sat at the front wal...

Re: A few more videos

Looks easy! ;) Bit distracting with that plastic screen thingy distorting the view. Nice straight-lining bit - the RoADAR FB examiners haven't seen it yet! My eyes are 4-5 inches higher than the camera so see over the screen. What I may do in the next video I record (I already have another one I'm ...

Re: A few more videos

Filmed this morning. A demo ride / vlog on a sunny Sunday morning in Suffolk, taking in the forest of Rendlesham, on a journey from Melton to Orford. This is a straight copy from the camera, with no editing apart from the intro/outro. I lowered the camera one more notch for this ride, but I think i...

Re: A few more videos

Interesting at about 3:15 and the justification for no left shoulder check. We've (Group) got a couple of examiners at the moment who are both biker and car Plod and they are critical if an Associate (car) trys to leave a roundabout without a nearside shoulder/blind spot check so I've taken to beat...
