I'm trying one of these this summer.. About the same weight (1.5kgs) with the inner tent or around a kilo with just the fly.

In my recent accident the attending police officer explained that his job easn't to assign blame, but to gather evidence to decide if an offence might have been committed, check the roadworthiness of any vehicles involved, breathalyse the drivers etc.. The blame part of it is down to the insurance companies.

Then informed me that the driver of the offending vehicle would be recommended for prosecution

Re: Bus passes

CTC Forum - On the road - 24 June 2015 - 12:19am
Living in South Birmingham, my bus pass covers a lot of London Midland train routes (inc Wolverhampton, Coventry and almost to Lichfield!). So I can (and sometimes do) load the bike onto the train, got to e.g. a couple of stops short of Lichfield, and have a bit of a pedal around the countryside and back to the station. Or other routes as required.

But on the other hand where I might have rode into the city centre, I'll now hop on a train or bus to get there. Especially since being rammed, on my bike, by a ***** driving a trannie pickup!

Usually the train though, it's a one and a bit mile walk to the station rather than a couple of hundred yards to the bus sop!

Dear Minister for Transport ... What on earth are you playing at with so many defective trucks on the UK's roads? Do something ...
