Dark visors

Always use one in daylight. Never been tugged for that or any mention made of it.
I think they have better things to do.

the most recent appointments available in the Charente Maritime are after August 2020. Luckily La Charente and La Vienne are trying something different.
My rdv at La Rochelle is Nov 20th 2019... Made last October.
The lady was not amused when I said I could be dead by then :mrgreen:

Brexit: UK drivers living in the EU urged to get new licence

Brexit: UK drivers living in the EU urged to get new licence

Jamba I posted a link at the start of the thread that explains why. Still seems to be full of "maybes". The 1968 convention pr-dates the EU and came into force in '77. The EU controls the style of the license. The 78 countries (or some thereof) signed up to the UN convention would need to change th...

Brexit: UK drivers living in the EU urged to get new licence

I will still be getting International Drivers Permits 1968 convention version well before my next trip (it is on the cards seven million British drivers will need them.) Why?

Brake pipes

A bit late, but for future reference. I needed a length of cupro-nickel tubing and both ends flaring for the bike. The el-cheapo-delux Chinese tool bought of Ebay is a piza-merde! so I went to a motor factors who said they could have it made for tomorrow, but only in copper. Asked if he knew anywher...

EDF scam

...I asked them how they can sleep at night making their living out of scamming people, and put the phone down. I much prefer stringing them along for as long as possible... much the same was I treat cold callers. I really hacked off some bint from Free a few weeks ago who was trying to sell me int...
