    I use a saved search, and in the advanced options exclude those sellers I find that routinely add multiple listing for the same item.

    Road tax is a con you can only use one vehicle at any one time but have to tax them all

    I could own 4 cars, I could drive the Ferrari, my son could drive the Subaru, my daughter the MX5 and my wife could have the Trabant! We could drive them on the road at the same time...

    I'd rather pay a predicatable fixed price for road tax, than have either road pricing, or increased fuel tax.

    It would not be such a pill to swallow if the money was actually spent on the road's, it probably gets used more to help pay for housing immigrants

    Wouldn't mind it being used to fly all the illegal immigrants back where they came from. Boat to plane gone.

    As far as I could tell, it uses straight forward left bar down to turn left / right hand bar down to turn right and not counter steering... could get messy fecking with a counter steering rider

    I know the lane control on my car catches me out often if I don't indicate to change lanes. I'm sure this feeeling would be amplified on a bike. Not for me I think :mad:

    Hooray Brand new Royal Enfield hymalayan arrived in the new black and red colours. Couple of gentle rides and thought I'd ride it to work. Key in and ; brrrrrtzzzzz, click , click , flat battery . Looked on YouTube and its littered with films about faults , several about batteries , sigh @#$%!
    Luckily I'm well savvy when it comes to the dark arts (electrics or at least I think I am ) and a few measurements later Its the Indian happy crappy battery . Unbelievable.
