Most Useful Photo Thing Has Packed Up
« on: May 11, 2019, 09:31:14 pm »
Arrgh, my most useful photographic thing has packed up.  It's decided not to play any more in a potentially pricey kind of way.  Any guesses?
As usual the prize is free beer at your own expense.

I guess having to invest in own beer has put people off   :-\
The answer is my car.  You need to get to locations, camera gear is a second at best.

I don't disagree, and indeed it would be very beneficial.  But it all went horribly wrong  :(  Tried to buy a bike last year but after many months of hassle and non existent products eventually got a credit card refund.  Maybe Jeremy Clarkson for World Transport Minister has a point.

Just get a BIKE... With engine.

Fixed that for you.

A 125 on a CBT (CBT's cost around £100, location dependant) can get to most places, do 60-70 if it needs to, are far more agile on grotty country roads than a big bike, and best of all, they're cheap to run. I have a full bike license and can ride anything I can insure, but choose to run a 125 to work and back because it does something silly, like 90+MPG silly, on my work run. The "big" bike is more like 20mpg on the work run, being more thirsty than pissed up cavers at HE.
Permission? Wassat den?
