    That is SO COOL!

    This Brits are woosies for not allowing it. It should be encouraged, perhaps even given a government subsidy.

    And the New Zealanders have finally figured out how to cool a pint of Guinnes:

    Well now, as a Brit who used to commute and also do a lot of UK miles, often to visit clients, on a Ducati (ST2, the faintly civilised one)

    Any views that the Brits are civic and cooperative on the roads - oh, after you vicar - is a fiction from the 1950s. And, a motorcyclist might have occasion several times on a typical ride to murmur "Well I say, m'good fellow, but I think you'll find that this parcel of road is currently occupied".

    And, I don't know how I know this, but I do - a moment's full throttle and a quick off/on with the kill switch can be surprisingly deterrent to the enthusiastic fellow who's a bit close to your back tyre.

    Goodness gracious, great balls of backfire

    So for us cyclists it would be a matter of carrying a lighter and packing a few burritos in the jersey...


    (c'mon, someone was going to say it)

    You would be arrested for excess NoX emissions or would that be NoXous emissions.
