well actually i have spent a good few years, 10 to be precise working on various aircraft piston and gas turbine engines etc around the world. when i first started i used to love it but towards the end i had lost the thrill and excitement of it all so i moved into IT

being multitrade i used to deal with all airframe and aircraft systems so have spent a lot of time dealing with very complicated equipment and exciting equipment

dont get excited by it all as much these days, must be old age i guess.

as a hobby it can be dead exciting but as a job the shine wears off over time.

no dig/slant on you so dont take it personally


My english teacher was a W4nK3r as well

but i must say the way you responded to my comments was interesting/revealing take care

I thought it was only teenagers who got bored anyway.

Being bored is a big pet hate of mine as you have to have a pretty sad life to reach a state where you are prepared to sit and do nothing about it.

I dare say some of the things that interest you Chris would not interest me.

Chris

As I said, people saying they are bored, particularly adults, is a big pet hate of mine, caused by a very old fashioned school regime etc.

Anyway, we going to do bikes to the next Church do?
Need to get a fresh MOT on mine before I can ride it and you can imagine how hard it is to get my bike MOT'd.

if the next meet is the 12th of june then that should be fine, if you need details of a place i have found that are more reasonable then drop me a pm.

i can imagine they have a heartattack when you walk in with 15 bikes in 1

A friend/colleage of mine has one - and yes it is a lovely car - but it doesn't seem to behave the same as a normal flooded engine. It still wont start, either if its turned over for a long time or even if its left sitting for a couple of hours. The end result is that "Mazda Assistance" come out and it leaves on the back of a truck to have the ECU reset at the dealer. 11 times in 2 years! It may be a fault with her particular can but the dealer says thats not the case.

I like the wee rear suicide doors, or am I thinking of the wrong car?

Nasher.
I think you are talking about the right car - rear doors open the wrong way (as no pillar between the front door and the back door) - I prefer to think being more like an old black hac.

Pretends to be a 4 door car - but the front seat pasenger / driver still has to remove their seatbelt for the rear sear passenger to get in or out (as no pillar so the seatbelt is mounted on the rear door frame!).
