Just looking on 'the other Buell website' and saw this https://www.asphaltandrubber.com/news/m ... ore-146707 we think we've got it bad. Look at the major names that we take for granted in Buell aftermarket world. After chapter 11 for brands. This is similar to calling the receivers in in the UK :o

Which of those names do we take for granted? Renthal, yeah, but the rest?

Sad of course but so too is the increasing cost of pretty much everything in this country as a result of the Brexit vote...

Rather be poor and free! :hehe:

But seriously, didn’t the Brexit thing also expose a lot of crap about elite groups and their activities we previously only suspected? We were being fleeced before 23.06.16! :roll:

May have nout to do with it, but.....

Cheltenham and surrounds are facing a massive housing building program. The local infrastructure is at breaking point and yet our planning depts seem intent on helping developers go ahead. Highways England put a hold on one plan unless an extra motorway access is built. What they should do is build a new town elsewhere next to the motorway, but developers would have to pay millions for new infrastructure, which is unlikely.......NB the roads are approaching gridlock in rush hour and in one village near here you can’t run a shower unless every other tap is turned off! :shock:

Cheltenham is supposed to be a Regency Town, but many new flats including the new student village are making parts of the town look like an East European Cold War getto. :sad1: They all appear to have doors and windows from the same supplier. Who knew? :headbang:

Rant over.......for now. :old:

all new towns should be built on ground not suitable for food production as the population is going to explode, wars and disease permitting, how about a new city on the Brecon beacons?

A lot of people have been involved in exposing those responsible...for a long time before Brexit!
Careful mind!....you may be a target by one of the Facebook sheeple that supposedly think thought like that is the downfall of this site....ANYONE can be made a scapegoat for someone else's inadequacies
