Did anyone watch this weeks episode showing the multi-vehicle pile up where several folk lost their lives (I don't think any motorcyclists were involved)? It happened December 2017.

It certainly hit home to me what paramedics go through and as stated in the show they have more sufferers from PTSD than the armed forces, I can certainly see why after that.

Non of my kids work for the health service but I could imagine the pain of having your young paramedic daughter call you in the middle of the night crying after what she went through..  :'(

I have always had a high respect for the good folk who are out there patching people up, I know one, but this episode certainly reinforced that.

*AHEM* back to stiff upper lip mode..

Part of an article i copied from Drivetribe about the Bugatti Chiron

It's big, heavy, has a W16 engine with four turbos, and can do a walloping 1,500 HP. We knew this wasn't going to end well as far as the EPA rating was concerned, right? It's not like you're buying the Chiron for its excellent mileage; in fact, it's quite the opposite. You might as well be in a contest to see which car can get the lowest mileage.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the Bugatti Chiron returns, wait for it, 9 MPG in the city and 14 MPG on the highway for a combined rating of just 11 MPG.

Using this combined figure, the EPA estimates that the Chiron's fuel tank is good for only 100 miles at best on the 9.1-gallon fuel tank. That assuming you hypermile the crap out of this car, and who wants to do that? Not a Chiron owner, that's for sure.  :o

I seem to have question marks, in the place of some of the emoji's.

Not sure if the link works, if it doesn't I'll read the comprehensive guides on how too later

K Club Humour / AAADD.. Not me i hasten to add
« on: June 28, 2017, 07:38:03 pm »
Recently I was diagnosed with AAADD – that’s Age Activated Attention Deficiency Disorder

It manifests itself like this:
I decide to water the garden,

As I go to the garage to turn on the hose I look at my car in the driveway and realise it needs washing
So I go back into the kitchen and pick up my car keys, then I notice the post on the kitchen table that I had picked up from the hall earlier
I decide to go through the post before I wash the car
I lay my car keys on the table, sort out the bills and throw the junk mail into the bin that is sitting under the table.
I notice that the bin is full.
So I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the bin.
Then I think since I’m going to the dustbin anyway I may as well pay the bills and post them in the post-box at the bottom of the lane.
I pick up my cheque book from the table and realise there is only one cheque left and that the new cheque book is in the desk in my study.
So I go into the study to my desk where I find the can of Coke I had been drinking earlier
I’m going to look for my cheque book, but I need to move the Coke somewhere safe so I don’t knock it over
I realise the Coke is now warm so I decide to put it in the fridge to cool off
As I head back towards the kitchen with my Coke a vase of flowers catches my eye, they need watering
I put the Coke on the kitchen counter and discover my reading glasses that I had been looking for all morning,
I decide I had better put them in my desk so I will know where they are, but first the flowers still need watering
I put the glasses back on the counter and fill a container with water
I suddenly spot the TV remote which someone has left on the kitchen table
I realise that we will need the remote when we come to watch TV tonight, but that I probably won’t remember that it’s on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the lounge where it belongs
But first I must water the flowers
I pour the water into the vase, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor.
So, I put the remote back on the table and get some towels to wipe up the spill.
Then, I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.
At the end of the day:
The garden isn't watered
The car isn’t washed
The bills aren’t paid
The bin is still full
There is a warm can of Coke on the kitchen counter
The flowers don’t have enough water,
There is still only 1 cheque in my cheque book,
I can’t find the remote,
I can’t find my glasses,
I don’t remember what I did with the car keys.
Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I’m really baffled because I know I was busy all the damn day, and I’m really tired.
I realise this is a serious problem, and I’ll try to get some help for it, but first I’ll check my e-mail….
Do me a favour, forward this message to everyone you know, because I don’t remember who the hell I’ve sent it to.
Don’t laugh — if this isn’t you yet, your day is coming!!

K Club Humour / From a car site i frequent
« on: June 20, 2017, 10:15:06 pm »
Two Scousers are riding along the M62 from Manchester to Liverpool on a motorbike. They break down and start hitching a lift.
A friendly trucker stops to see if he can help and the scousers ask him for a lift. He tells them that he has no room in the wagon as he is carrying 20,000 bowling balls but will take a look at the bike for them.
He tries everything he knows but is unable to repair it. Time is getting on now and he's late for his delivery so he tells the scousers he has to leave.
“Hey, c’mon our kid,” they say, “gissa lift…”.
The trucker once again explains that he has no room as he is carrying 20,000 bowling balls.
The scousers put it to the driver that if they can manage to fit in the back with the bowling balls will he give them a lift. The driver agrees.
They finally manage to squeeze themselves and their motorbike into the back of the wagon so the driver shuts the doors and gets off on his way.
By this time he is really late and so puts his foot down. Sure enough the police pull him up for speeding.
One of the officers asks the driver what he is carrying to which he replies “Scouse Eggs”. The policeman obviously doesn’t believe this so wants to take a look. He opens the back door and quickly slams it shut and locks it.
He gets onto his radio and calls for immediate backup from as many officers as possible.
The dispatcher asks what emergency he has that requires so many officers. “I’ve got a wagon with 20,000 Scouse eggs in it – two have already hatched and the bastards have managed to nick a motorbike already”.

How To - Technical Section / Changing instrument cluster units

I've been having a play with the GS911 after servicing the bike (Takes more oil then my daughters Yaris 1.5 T-Sport and the oil filter is bigger).
I reset the service counter and updated the time and date to my laptop.
It gives me the option to change the TPM from Bar to PSI and economy to UK mpg etc.. If i go through and change them it still shows it in metric. I tried changing the ambient air temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit and that worked ok, so I'm not quite sure why I can't have the the tyres pressures in English.

I'm doing this on a MacBook but i can't see that making any difference

Any ideas please

SWMBO must never find out either
As I am now doing all my own servicing. I bit the bullet and bought a GS-911, (enthusiast version I'm not loaded like most of the people in here)  :P

Next job is to work out how to use it, if it's anything like deciphering repROM I'm in for a world of confusion.
Feel free to change my flag colour on the map

..and took it for its 1st MOT. I expected it to pass with less than 1800 miles on it and of course it did.

That's my total K news this year. As you were, back to what you were saying..  ;D
