    He walks to the train station, so we only hear the roar at weekends and even then it seems to be only occasionally nowadays.

    So much more melodic that those pesky phat exhausts that youths seem to love loudening their hatchbacks with.

    I wouldn't mind being woken by the sound of a V12, but I can see why some people might be.

    Someone once described leaving an Aston in the garage and doing next to no miles in it as being like not sleeping with your girlfriend to save her for the next man.

    Having just returned from the fudging awful hole full of brickclams that is Centerparcs, I think I'm going to go for the Rapide.

    Last week just confirmed for me that the last thing I need is boot space. Hopefully my inability to bring much in the way of luggage will dissuade my family from such silly ideas as attempting to holiday in places where relaxing is impossible.

    A dream.
    Nothing else to add to your stellar opinion of this creature.

    You have my deepest sympathies. No-one should have to deal with that. Still, you did your duty as a husband and father, and I trust there will be some reciprocal activity on your part as reward/mitigation for such horror.

    They can't possibly be mine. My eldest just wants to fish, explore the woods, climb stuff and be dragged around the place on the back of my bicycle.

    I keep myself at a reasonable level of fitness but that week was something else.

    I used to take my son karting but all he wanted to do was play tennis, admittedly the girls he used to bring home from the tennis club were of a much higher standard than you get at a karting track, but even so :rolleyes:

    I hired one!

    If any of you ever see me with a bike rack, you have my permission to open fire.

    I did, the fudging horror.

    Apparently you can't attach a kid's tandem to their electric bikes. I think that's flimflam - they can smell car people a mile off and just want to fudge with us.

    They're the things that tell you to flick your left hand towards you and plant your right foot by showing amber, right?

    Anyone ever been on one of these?

    https://therunto.com/monaco/

    I got some spam through for it and wondered if it's a bit of a con or a real thing.

    Edit: Don't bother, just received the price list.
