#406277 Think Bike

Posted by Lenny on 06 September 2014 - 06:49 AM

A motorbike travelling at legal speeds is difficult to see.
A speeding bike is pretty much impossible to see.
The ability for the driver pulling out to see the rider in time and make the relevant calculations as to whether they pull out or not are severely affected.
I deal with many incidents where speed was a major contributing factor and unfortunately my ability to empathise with someone who basically signs their own death certificate by going at stupid speeds is greatly reduced.


And dont read the following if your eating rite now because its a bit ugh

I used to work with a guy that was part time on call with local fire brigade,
Had a fellow colleague on the opposite shift whom was out sick for five years before quitting due to trauma after being called to a midnight collision typical Saturday night, wet conditions collision with motorcycle and a truck,
Poor guy on bike was decapitated and the fire crew got the job of going around with flash lights looking for it,
The guy out with traumatic stress was the lad whom found it,

I have to say its not a task i would have associated with the fire brigade or one i would expect to become involved in,
I assumed fires and cutting car roofs would be all and shir look away when cutting the roof wont see anything nasty,

He also told me about difficulties in estates with house fire and a drunk guy passing by,
There was a fire inside one of the rooms in the house
And they cant just burst in through due to flames etc.

So they were holding back and spraying water in,
Drunk guy thought he knew better went in and put his right foot through the door lol
Thankfully the fire didnt come through but they then had to cut the door around his leg and call an ambulance for him
Because the plywood door splintered when he pushed his foot through sticking in to his leg if he tried to pull it back out,
Wow what a super hero :lol:

Ah no worries at all Hassen, after I picked up the Mondeo I tended to spend more time over on STdriveRS as there was more goin on for the Mondy, here was different class for the Focus though. Just kinda drifted away then and logged in the other day for the first time in months.
Haha, cheers for the offer, but if I bailed at this stage of the game I could be needing a real sick-note the next time the lads got their hands on me!
Dylan will probably be passing through my neck of the woods too en route. :(

Free Qualifying Gift if you can make it tomorrow Gar,
Thats taking one hom3 for the team aswell pal,
It_ not really a strawberry Cornetto

#406100 Lend Us A Ride Australia.. New Series!

Posted by Lenny on 05 September 2014 - 07:59 PM

Made me laugh Lenny. Love the part where they are stuck in the bush with the bin bag tent trying to light a fire with a flint stick and the other guy says he's got a lighter, classic.

lol yeah that was classic,
Just bits like pretending to be part of a rally but not actually taking part on the same stretch of road atall, sort of put me thinking "what else is fake"
Was cool when they got the skyline,
And going back in to the blue !Removed! was brilliant,

I just think it could have been a bit more serious in the way they obtained the cars wasnt that difficult,
I feel the fame has began to go to there heads with the internet organising a meet to say:
"we are MightyCarMods lend us your car"
I thought that was a bit disappointing, and an easy way out id give em mine if it featured on show,

I am a huge fan of the guys,
And i understand they dont plan and produce everything they do these days because they have sponsors to dictate aswell as a producer
But i think if it was left to the guys themselves perhaps they would have used more scrap yards and modified bean tins to hold it together
More improvisation,

Remember Jeremy Clarkson
Going on a road trip and i cant remember if it was his water pump or fuel pump was broken on the car,
But he had to drive and turn a manual pump periodically to keep the car going,
That was simple and entertaining while costing almost nothing.
They could have imitated some of top gears stuff.

Does everyone know how to use panaramic mode on the Camera?

I assume most people have it since my phone is a 40 euro Alcatel one touch :lol:
Was up in donegal few weeks ago and found out about panaramic images
Just thought id tell you guys about it encase y'all didnt know you had it and would have used it had ye known,

Press button to take picture,
An arrow then comes on screen telling you when to move towards the right,
It then compiled all images in to one wide angle image,
Ideal for ford meet when there all there,
Heres an image from donegal in panaramic mode:



#406025 Tailgate Button

Posted by Lenny on 05 September 2014 - 05:47 PM

If you ever come across one of those screws that goes through the grab recess on the inner tailgate trim, give us a shout, tried 5 scrap yards and 3 dealers!

Will do mate,
Thing thats killing me now is that i had two panels,


One that came on my car as standard i cut the badge off it fitted a red led badge light,
The leds later blew so i swapped it baxk to standard,

I had advertised the Debadged panel on here for a few months,
It didn't sell so im sorry now to say i binned it,
Never thought it would be of use to anyone.
