No, I'm one of the lucky ones. My deafness affects my hearing exclusively, and doesn't cause any issues in other areas. I can ride a bicycle perfectly well!

Re: Just pondering

I'm profoundly deaf, so my hearing loss is in excess of 81 dB. I think it stands at 90 to 95 dB currently. That means with my hearing aids, I just hear, what I call, environmental sounds such as cars, wind roar, etc etc. Without my hearing aids, I'm about as deaf as the proverbial post. Consequently...

Just pondering

Hello. As folks here know, I'm profoundly deaf. Now I was lazily perusing these forums as I do like the idea of getting a motorbike purely for fun when I'm older. No commuting on a bike for me, if I'm doing a boring journey regularly I'll take something with air con and a comfy seat thanks! But anyw...

Re: I did a bad thing. How do I improve?

I've been thinking about fitting a dash cam. I wonder how (or even if) it would affect my driving. Has anyone else fitted one and noticed a change in driving styles after doing it? If it made me think twice before incidents like this happen, but didn't negatively influene anything else, then it mig...

Re: Bubblecar Museum

I used the know chap with a Messerschmidt. Apparently to go into reverse you just started the engine in reverse rotation (basic two-stroke). Interesting concept. So does this mean you could achieve the same top speed both forwards and backwards? As if you have 3 forward gears, and you're running th...

Re: Bubblecar Museum

Very good pictures. Rather amusing to think there's at least 10 years between me and the youngest car on display! :mrgreen:

Re: Reg Local - Autobahn Driving (new video)

It is rather a great shame that Reg Local doesn't subtitle his videos, I'm extremely interested to watch them but am unable to access them due to being profoundly deaf. The option for Auto-captions has been left on for his videos. Just click the left of these icons in the bottom right of the video ...

Re: Trying to find someone.

I typed Liverpool in the search box, top left. :) A master of thinking! I'm afraid I've become a bit 'hard-of-thinking' lately :oops: That's the one! Thanks, my brain's been a bit fried lately, it's the excessive amount of relaxing I've been doing the last two weeks or so! :mrgreen: How's the sleep...
