Smart mate. Can't wait to get rid of the work one...nothing worse than advertising that you work for an energy company


#483127 100 Parking Ticket!

You going to do a guide?


#483111 100 Parking Ticket!

Posted by Invisible Man on 06 May 2015 - 01:37 PM

I got one of these tickets for parking in the Peel Centre in Stockport. I know that it is free after 8.30pm and there is a Frankies & Bennys on there. Arrived at 8.28pm. Had a cig and went in after 8.30. No ticket.

 

3 weeks go by and they send me a £100 ticket for not paying during operating hours, again reduced to £60 if paid within 14 days.

 

I knew that you had to enter a reg number into the machines when getting a ticket, but I always assumed that was so tickets weren't transferable to other folk in the car park. Turns out the car park has ANPR technology and it matches up your car to the ticket.

 

So in short, I had to pay £60 to park my car in an empty car park for 2 minutes.

#483108 Idiot Children On Scooters

Posted by Invisible Man on 06 May 2015 - 01:22 PM

There is/was a young lad near me who used to tear up and down the street on his dirt bike. No lid, no leathers, nothing.....popped a wheelie, back end lit up and he went straight into a concrete lamppost......

 

That in itself should have been enough to teach him a lesson, 3 months later he was flying up the maiin road that I lived off, car pulled out in front of him at night, no lights on, and he went flying over the car and hit a wall. I think they hosed him down.

 

I had bikes for about 10 years, rode them like an old man in built up areas, but when the roads opened up so did my throttle.

 

It took a serious crash and me ending up under a bus and on crutches for 6 months for me to realise they were dangerous.

 

But going back to your original point, they let anyone have a CBT these days at the age of 16. Going back nearly 15 years now, but the day I did my CBT, there was a girl who was about 20 years old. We drove around the test centre car park for half the day and then went out on the roads after dinner. She went to pull out the car park and went straight across a main road and through a fence on the other side.

 

The instructor made her pick the bike up and carry on. She passed.....tells you everything you need to know about the types of incompetence they allow on the roads

Yeah....i think i may end up just seeing what turns up as part of the kit. I might have to construct something to make it work more efficiently. But for £170 it should be damn near perfect

Posted by Invisible Man on 20 February 2015 - 10:34 PM

I ended up going to a local tyre place. He used a pneumatic chisel to put a grove into them and then turned them off using it. Took him 15 minutes. Charged me £10

I'm gonna stick with my current 17's for now. They aren't huge. But I like them. I have seen some replica ST wheels for £400, but they can wait....

And, I know I could do with some new locking nuts
