Re: Latest Covid 19 News for Motorcyclists in England

I have a friend who believes in every conspiracy theory going. 9/11, vaccines, New World Order, people control through non existent viruses etc etc. If there is anything 'anti-establishment' going around, then he signs up for it. I have no idea why certain people have this bitter resentment of the ...

Re: Latest Covid 19 News for Motorcyclists in England

I do really think you're overstating that one... Chloe Middleton died and the death was reported as COVID19. That's what I'm saying but the main point is that she was not tested, so the diagnosis was based on pure assumption. Coming from the background you do, where hard irrefutable evidence rules,...

Re: What are your thoughts on this

Personally I will stay locked down irrespective of the announcements and the media until I see fit to do otherwise. People would do well to remember that as much as possible you must retain control of your own fate. There comes a point though where there has to be an acceptable level of risk. I've ...

Steve Berry sounded like a total idiot. He was very rude to the lady on the show. Ah you heard it too. I totally agree and tried to get on the show to have a go at him. The councillor he attacked was making a perfectly valid point and even preceded her statement by saying that she has no objection ...

What are your thoughts on this

I was listening to the radio yesterday when the subject was bikers turning up en mass to meeting places like Matlock and Hastings. Apparently you couldn't move for bikes in some places. Local residents are very angry and there have been complaints to government from local authorities. Steve Berry wa...

Re: Latest Covid 19 News for Motorcyclists in England

Rob Which is wrong because there is absolutely no way any doctor could state without reservation that the patient would have died purely as a result of smoking. The fact is that witho...

Re: Motorcycling is a good transport option during Covid 19

I wonder how much that figure would change if you removed all the safety features in modern cars. It wouldn't make any difference to attitudes. All government are interested in is the bottom line. You can argue till you're blue in the face about who causes the crashes but it matters not one jot. Fa...

Re: Latest Covid 19 News for Motorcyclists in England

[ The point can be summed up by this... if a person is in the process of dying from, say, a cut throat and you stab him through the heart at or near the moment of death, it may well be impossible to say with wny certainty whether the actual cause of death was the cut throat or the stab wound.

Re: Latest Covid 19 News for Motorcyclists in England

That isn't what I said. If a person is in hospital COVID 19 syptoms and subsequently dies, then there can be little doubt that they have COVID 19. A test really isn't necessary. Rob How can you possible say that when the symptoms of CV19 are virtually identical to the common flu. That's why I used ...

Re: Motorcycling is a good transport option during Covid 19

It's an argument that's been raging for decades and I'd love to go along with it but unfortunately any advantages our chosen mode of transport has at any time, is wiped out and overtaken by our horrendous accident and fatality rates. At the moment (just going from memory) in the UK we account for le...

Re: Latest Covid 19 News for Motorcyclists in England

If we're at the stage where a doctor can confirm a diagnosis based purely on an opinion then God help us. Using that logic, a patient with painful stomach could be sent home with some codeine, only to die the next day from a ruptured appendix. Its not acceptable. Sorry Might as well go back to drill...

I have to say that cycling is not a pleasure, I do it to get some exercise. I’d like it to be a pleasure! I cycled this morning and was so close (as normal) to turning round after half a mile. I only did four miles and that was enough. I felt exactly the same till I got my peddle assist. I do have ...

Re: Latest Covid 19 News for Motorcyclists in England

The problem we have is that a lot of deaths are being recorded as covid related when other causes are the determining factor. There is a theory that doctors are under pressure to bump up the numbers. A case I took an interest in was that of Chloe Middleton, the 21 year old who allegedly died from Co...

Just want to give a shout out to these people who do custom designed shirts. Basically send them your design, photo or whatever and they turn it into a T shirt.
