Quote from: JimG on November 18, 2020, 17:04:21 pmNot much chance for filtering through traffic now as I am riding a Can-Am Spyder trike, somewhat wider than my bike. (Couldn't offer a lift anyway as my insurance doesn't cover passengers)

Is that some sort of motorised mobility scooter ?. :D  :D  :D

Sywell is my local (full-size) airfield, and yes, the surrounding  roads are basically country lanes.   This is all very quaint and adds to the charm of the place but it isn't exactly conducive to handling a heavy traffic.   ::)

There have been airshows at Sywell in recent years and the roads have been a nightmare. 
If you're planning on attending the event, allow plenty of time to do the last few miles.

Quote from: Brian Cooper on November 18, 2020, 01:47:39 amYes, I am proud to be British.  :uk:
Whilst personally managing to avoid being afflicted with the curiously dreaded disease, I have nevertheless been the victim of it on more than one occasion.
Such is life.
 :study:
.

Me too, proud enough to have served even though I am mixed heritage (the other term is too divisive) as are my kids. We are under pressure not to be patriotic however because of our heritage and appearance.
The dreaded disease in Britain is not envy of success Brian, it's division.
Cure that and all will be well.

Quote from: JimG on November 18, 2020, 11:11:15 amJust found out recently that the management at IWM Duxford have decided to stop hosting Flying Legends dues to "cost considerations". If it goes ahead the 2021 show will take place at Sywell. Looking at Google maps it appears that the surrounding roads are just narrow country roads so can they cope with the sort of traffic involved with Legends? I was at the 2019 show and even arriving early the traffic was backed up for near 5 miles on the A505 and looked like a long queue on the M11. Only the fact that I was on 2 wheels allowed me to get there without a long wait as the traffic was moving very slowly.This was with the need for buying tickets before attending allowing them to restrict the numbers.

Quote from: pheasant_plucker on November 18, 2020, 10:01:21 amYou state that you left the RCME forum because of "the overly moderated dictatorship" yet a very short time in to your membership you present an argumentative front on here which is just asking to be moderated! There's nothing wrong with friendly arguments and banter but arguing and insulting people is not the way to go.

Where did the insults start Gerry?
I don't see the instigator quoted and spoken too on the matter nor his abuse removed? I'll give them their due at least both parties would have been dealt with, probably heavy handed but at least equally.
Too precious I guess?

Quote from: Tabsdad on November 17, 2020, 21:56:30 pmBore off Diana, you decided to insult me so I reciprocated, you don't insult or attempt to patronise me without a similar response. Your precariously perched mask has slipped and you spat your dummy because you didn't like being pinned down by a minnion.
I joined this site hoping to gee it up by trying to create some renewed activity as an alternative to the overly moderated dictatorship of RCME, I also noted the usernames that I recognised from other forums and contacted them asking why they left and what it would take to get them back, from a dozen or so messages your name came up a significant number of times as a reason why they wouldn't, You've now confirmed what they stated.

I tried fellas but I'm trying to p155 against the wind here and that just ends up messy.
Mods do your thing as Diana has bid you, it's no skin off my nose.
