Connie_rider, thanks for the welcome, yes I am aware of the euro forum. I did change my speedo from kph to mph, our speed limits are in mph. Bizarrely, as members of the European Union we are supposed to use the metric system and we mostly do, anything we buy is by the litre or kilogramme but we still use good ol' mph.
Jim.

You still get a pint at the pub?
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

That's interesting as when I go in to buy liquor, I'm thinking fifth.  It hasn't been made that way in more years than I can remember.  They don't make half gallon sizes either.  It's all because of that stupid metro system.

Yes beers are the only thing still sold in pints, any shot of spirit is sold in measures of 25ml. Like I said, bizarre!

Welcome to the fold. My son was in your  city last year as one of the Rocks pro basketball players. Loved the place.

Here is another short video of me and a mate out for a ride, start of November and the weather was great if a bit cool. I'll apologise for the footage as it's uploaded from the camera with no editing. The camera was struggling a bit with the change of light when going from bright sun in to shade.
cheers,
Jim.

Don't you get confused riding on the wrong side of the road?  :chugbeer:   Great video! Any day riding is a good day of riding.

I don't think so as the controls are reversed...
