I'm English but riding around Buenos Aires doing courier work on my motorbike which is not something I'd have envisaged doing if someone had asked me a few years ago.
Ive seen people doing Deliveroo & Ubereats deliveries on a Honda CBR600RR & Kawasaki ZX-6R. Must of been 'bring your best bike' to work day' or something

In my case, the customers expect a moped but get a chopper instead.
I call it premium service and they pay for it, so double win.

A "White lives matter" plane banner has been deemed as racist and disgusting by Burnley FC and the local council as well as many others on social media after it flew over the Etihad during Man City V Burnley football match during which all players wore black lives matter on their shirts and took a kneel as well as held a 1 minutes silence. The police were looking to see if there was grounds for pressing charges and the CPS has decided that no crime has taken place during the banner flying. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8452581/No-crime-committed-White-Lives-Matter-banner-flown-Ethiad-stadium-police-say.html

Now before we all jump on political discussion just remember we may get in trouble for it here, the only piece i will say with the whole BLM thing is that reserve comments until you done some research yourself because i'm sure there are a lot of people that are protesting and not protesting don't fully understand it still.
Anyway congrats to Liverpool FC i guess,move on to a hopeful better finale to a season for next year lol.
The UK is a joke with social distancing, going to beaches,shopping and even now apparently booking holidays already...Like f*ck public service effort right its a big slap in the face to them.
See so many people now walking around as it nothing has changed makes me sick.

Or maybe people are tired of the nonsense governments are shoveling to the public. Covid19 is STILL far less deadly than heart failure, the flu, cancer or car accidents.

On a more positive note... More cuts to public services incoming. Namely the Police, Fire brigade & Public transport. MPs however will still get their 8-10% raise in salary if they havent already got it. Its a race to the bottom with this government.

civs are going to have to find creative measures to protect themselves & their property because there wont be enough police to deal with it. They are already stretched as they are.

Typical of MPs everywhere.
They claim they can't afford stuff, so cut costs in essential services, then give themselves a pat on the back for doing a great job and a pay rise as a reward.

I didn't think we still had a police force, or they're too busy kneeling down trying to seem pc to do any actual police work, they've pretty much given rioters and looters a free pass for the last 4 weeks whilst still trying to dictate to families and people enjoying the weather that they can't gather in beaches and parks, it's a joke, one rule for some and another for others, that's why people don't care and quite frankly I can't say I disagree, though I also work in a supermarket and there's bugger all chance of people staying 1 meter away from me let alone 2 and I also agree with @lexluthermiester

That's because they changed to a service years ago, to appease the PC brigade that thought the word Force sounded to brutal or some crap.

They can't "afford" to increase overhead for public service and clap for them but they will happily increase the people at top that don't do f*ck all.
If the government stuck to their guns with lockdown and not rush easing it down then we wouldn't be in this position in first place, the UK citizens needs their hands to be held because we can't use common sense at all as proven again by the power of news outlet that gets dictated by government too.
The fact there are some people that think what Dominic Cummings did is justified is bull crap as well, he flatout broke his own guidelines and even think its okay to put his own outside family at risk for "child care" when it wasn't needed as he did have friends/family that were closer to where he lived so he didn't need to make that journey from day 1. His wife had "symptoms" so he should have been self-isolating himself and not going to no10 so he shouldn't have made that journey. He also shouldn't have driven 40 minutes worth just to test his "eye-sight" is utter ridiculous, if your vision is impaired then you flat out do not drive.
The fact he got the pass also made us look dumb aswell for even listening to them in first place and thats where the other issue lies in with the whole lockdown and why people are also not listening to them anymore.

Anyway change of subject now before this thread gets lockdown..no pun intended.
The heat wave and hayfever can bugger off now,bring on Autumn,Winter and Spring again please.

It was hayfever during the lockdown now it's pollution fever since the vehicles are back on the roads IMHO.
Many friends and family myself included are suffering again since the lockdown was eased, the real fesh air was welcome.
I wish lockdown could have continued for a least a few weeks more.

I'm a petrol head so the smell of automobile doesn't bother me so much, the old banger diesel cars do though.
Get that sh*t off the road now as they are more polluting than a performance car(Only reason i say this is because a lot of businesses use diesel cars), the clear blue skies though was a nice change though but honestly the UK government while in lockdown they could have made some serious changes to major cities about how to minimise the number of vehicles used but they won't as they just want money.

It looked shit outside so i went for a jog while the rain had stopped. I can hit speeds of 24mph on a bicycle but jogging for 30mins absolutely destroys my legs.

I know how you feel... Can cycle for hours, yet try and get me to jog for more than 30 seconds when I first start, I'm dying and can't do anymore lol Needless to say, I prefer cycling to jogging but there's so few places to cycle without having to either cycle to get there or drive the bike somewhere... Kind of defeats the object for me...

We own 2 vehicles, one petrol the other hybrid petrol. Been there on the petrol head scene in my youth, nothing against car owners. Miss the old Escort Mexico and RS200 :(
I rarely see banger diesel vehicles around these parts but more and more quad exhaust 4x4's. A gulp of their fumes when walking past them makes me feel unwell.
Our local council set up a scheme a few years ago where shoppers could catch a frequent bus en masse into the city and back again leaving their cars in huge car parks outside the city. it failed as privatisation came and the public transport system run by the council was removed. All buses now come at once, at times they don't come at all.

I rarely see banger diesel vehicles around these parts but more and more quad exhaust 4x4's. A gulp of their fumes when walking past them makes me feel unwell.
Our local council set up a scheme a few years ago where shoppers could catch a frequent bus en masse into the city and back again leaving their cars in huge car parks outside the city. it failed as privatisation came and the public transport system run by the council was removed. All buses now come at once, at times they don't come at all.
Damn sucks you don't have those anymore,they are worth a decent money nowadays.
Old diesel bangers and fake exhaust unnecessary 4x4 cars need to bugger off as they are just pointless to have. Its just single people not even a family,trying to show off they have money driving a modern financed Land Rover or Audi or Bmw diesels think they own the roads. Bugger off,taking way too much space and you probably don't even need a diesel in the first place.

Yeah, but they were ten a penny back in the 80's / early 90's. Mate sold his RS1600 for £150 in 1992 and he's still kicking himself.
I don't think it had a spot of rust on it.
Boy racers with bangers and loud exhausts when the sunshine is out, middle aged blond's of a certain age in the 4X4's
I agree about the financed cars, Mercs and BMW's galore....And they can't even drive properly.
Traffic back to choke me with your smoke levels. Need a holiday where the fresh air is (wherever that is) :)

Even funny are those people with super expensive cars that cant park to save their lives and end up shaving a few grams off their alloys. That always cracks me up.... But i digress. I am aware of a few rental car companies (there may be more...) that will lease you a car at a decent price for something like 2-3 years then you trade it back in for another one of your choice when the lease ends - and so a new breed of driver is born... The folks that dont care about what happens to what they drive and how they drive because it isnt theirs so thrash it around
