If you're riding with Sandre, Chris, you'll have your feet on the dashboard screaming, 'Sacrebleu! Moins vitesse Madame! Ralentir, ralentir! Essaies-tu de me tuer p*t**n?' :shock: ( :D )

The French are very good and careful drivers if they have plenty of space - it's their parking that's a total disaster. :shock:

Thirty years ago I remember a poster in a gendarmerie ( police station ) saying that 17% of the driver were drunk
It added that if the 83% else were not driving , there would be space enough for the drunk people to drive and not having accidents :roll:

I'm not a speed freak Mike, 70mph tops.
That might sum it up - I've not had Timex that fast yet since the head work! I did manage to overtake a couple of cars today though - and it wasn't solid lines in the middle of the road this time either :oops:

Trikes are unknown here because they're prohibited ( too much dangerous they said ! )
Even if a few of them are becoming allowed to ride now

Hi folks. I've had a reply from the printers. The total cost is £95 + vat = £114 divided by twelve = £9.50 per set. So if everyone who wants a set of stickers sends me a pm I'll forward them my bank details for payment. Hope this method is ok with everyone.

Hi Mark ,
That allright
Could you accept some cash when we meet in 3 weeks ?
I think it would be easier
If not send me your bank numbers for me to send you it
Waiting for your answer …
Thanks forward & take care
