    Yeah I saw that, guess people would rather have a longer period of semi-pain than 1 month of being cut off. What I also heard though is that if for some reason the rains come early, they will be...

    That is ridiculous that a shop would be so lazy. Maybe it's a slight "fish eye" effect with the camera being close to the shift cables, but that looks to be sticking out way way too far!

    What's with the flagman signs then? When they pull trucks and equipment out into the road? Cyclists going for their Strava KOM's are not people you want to mess with by stopping them, lol!
