Re: New bike :)

Wikipedia says "The last popular chain drive automobile was the Honda S600 of the 1960s". Personally, I'm amazed they chose to do that at that time. My impression is that chain drive for cars died out, in the main, by the 1930s.

Re: Smart Motorways

Your stop start activates with the car in gear and the clutch down? That's a serious flaw!

Re: Turn left?

If we're just looking for excuses to be anti-social and p!ss other drivers off, while secure in our pedantic "I'm doing nothing illegal, officer", is that an advanced attitude? Converse question - under what circumstances would taking the first exit from lane 2 provide any advantage? I can...
