Me neither....

I do rate Hertz, a bit more expensive, but well worth it.

Last van I ordered from Europcar....

Hello Dr.... we have a slight problem... a customer has come in to hire a van and he has only got a car licence so can only drive a small transit, can he have that and we will give you the larger van..?
Err no! Because it will cost me...
We will only charge you for a small van and no fuel... done!
Then a 5 ton Iveco comes to the collection bay...
Bastards!

Is Bigger not always Better Doc? Panman said it was, thats why his bike is the size of a horse.

Today went well. 

Course was initially intimidating and tricky but I managed to complete it in my first attempt, which to be honest was really my only goal. 

I made s bit of a mistake on my second run which was a bit disappointing, but there was plenty of seasoned entrants who cocked it up both times, so I’m not beating myself up about it. 

Here is today’s course:

I finished it in 2m56, the best time of the day was 2m07

Finding a nice quiet car park I guess.

Having watched these crazy videos of American and Japanese police on agility courses using R12RT and Hog’s.... the only thing that puts me off is its my bike and my bones that’ll break!

Yeah, finding time to do it in is harder though.

The bike bit is why I bought the cheap CRF for it - if it goes over, it goes over and tears wont be shed. It's all pretty low speed stuff where you are likely to tip over so a bump and a bruise is more likely than a break, but obviously thats not guaranteed.

Here's something for the engineers, I could do with:

a - raising the tickover. Bring fuel injected I don't think this is possible.

b - having a handlebar mounted rear brake. I was thinking about a mountain bike lever, or a thumb lever, with the cable leading down to pull on the foot lever. Possible?

Knew someone who had a handlebar mounted rear break - his foot was fooked after an accident
