    There is a new section of road that is being made on the route to my place of work. The top surface is concrete but being still under construction there is a lot of dust and fine sand covering the surface. Talk about skating to work, this stuff is lethal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    With the size of the heavily laden Artics that use this road those cracks will no doubt turn into chasms!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The sturdiest bike ever made and impossible to wheelie with due to its 400kg frame:

    I hope you used it for solving crime Maz.

    I had a budgie, good for wheelies, not much else.

    What about the Budgie? I know? We'll name it after something pensioners keep cramped in a tiny cage.
