    Lol, when you are born left handed and your parents make you change to the right you end up using both, guess it applies to feet as well.

    I'm right handed but left footed.
    When my Grandad found out. He was convinced I'd be a star footballer (something to do with kicking the ball inwards from either sideline?)
    Unfortunately for him, I thought puffball was a girls game! o_O

    Amal still use British Standard threads and BSP is British Standard Pipe :) British bikes are very confusing to say the least as you can have a huge mix of thread types on certain years. Even i get confused after 50 odd years
