My general experience has been that most car drivers leave a random distance between themselves and the vehicle in front of them(regardless of speed), but don't consider a motorcycle a vehicle and so completely ignore them.
    True but all that means that bikers need to be extremely defensive.
    I travel at 100 on the N7 and never ever pass a motorbike, but in heavy traffic at peak times when all the gobshites are randomly switching lanes I'm passed by dozens of bikes squeezing between cars and trucks.

          Saw that coming the other way. Always a bad sign when the medics are standing around scratching themselves but the motorway's still closed. :-/

            Two dead apparently. Including one who had a heart attack at the scene. Heard that a few times of people getting in crashes and surviving, but the shock pushes their hearts over the edge. Awful stuff. Some poor fucker trapped in a car at the bottom of the River Lee today also. Two kids in the back of the car who were thankfully rescued. Although that story has been written up in kind of a strange way, as if there might be more to the story. Hopefully not.

                  Agsin usually fairly easy but just check you have a valve adjuster in your boot kit before you head off.

                      Fifa had the name and World Cup. Fifa wanted a pretty hefty wedge for that alone.
                      It's a calculated gamble by ea. They'll have EA Soccer or something next year.
                      FIFA giving up a load of easy money there-no way they’ll find someone to just slap the name on and compete- ISS dead at this stage (no idea as don’t play anymore)
                      EA safe enough especially with the sick joke that is UT

                                    My kid's pal's parents have offered to bring her to Potato Park tomorrow. Want to drop some cash around but not sure of the amount.

                                    Any help?

                                        child ticket is 40 quid, a bit less if booked online in advance. Add in food or whatever, you wouldn't see any change out of 50 quid anyway.

                                        50 quid is a nice round number too, gets awkward if you go to 60 and 70 seems like too much. I'd probably just drop 50 and say you hope that covers it.

                                          And not in that fake American upbeat way, he comes across as a genuinely really nice guy.

                                            Personally, if I offered i would have already known the cost and would be offended by an offer of cash...maybe a nice bottle of champers instead ?

                                              Ah no, I wouldn't be comfortable not giving some money towards it. I've already told her I'd drop some cash around, just don't want to make a bollix of the amount. I was thinking €50, so cheers Dobby for that.

                                                If it were me taking the kid i'd politely refuse your offer and hope it doesnt go all Mrs Doyle. Sometimes people get a kick out of treating kids. A cute way out might be to give the kid a kitty and tell them to please help her spend it.

                                                        Out West. Heading over to Inish Lacken and the water is a bit choppy as the wind is up. Getting a bit wet but it's not too bad. Arrive at our somewhat secluded beach and even that was a little bit choppier than normal.

                                                        Father in Law : Will you jump out, grab the bow and hold the boat steady

                                                        Me : Sure

                                                        Also me : *Fully submerged in 7 foot of water*

                                                        Grabbed the bow and help her steady though....

                                                          Anyone else disappointed with the new Floor is Lava? While the sets are a little more impressive looking they're definitely easier to conquer.

                                                          Where it captured something at the start of the pandemic I think its run out of momentum already. Two years to produce 5 episodes is a bloody shambles.

                                                          Some of the editing/continuity is crap too, random stuff like contestants with dry hair and 'lava' smeared on their arms in the exit interviews (they've obviously been in the shower already).

                                                          Only 2 contestants for the volcano for each team in episode 1 but three there after and no explanation. What, you think we wouldn't notice?

                                                          Just not good enough lads. However JuniorHiFi doesn't seem to mind, despite my incessant giving out about how easy it is now.

                                                                                          She was feeling shortchanged at not having drawm Duran Duran next weekend. I reckon 80% of the neighbours don't use these tickets anyway so she'll probably get a pair for the price of having to chat up some auld wan for a few minutes.

                                                                                            A few of the speedier guys didn't show up, would have only been good enough for about 8th place if they did but still, felt good.

                                                                                            I'd guess it'd be at least 2 minutes slower than a concrete path, so not one for PB hunting.

                                                                                              Went in twice this week on my lunchbreak, such a fabulous place to run, and was only thinking it would be a great spot for a parkrun.

                                                                                              I'll pop down to it over the next few weeks. Surprised it's not getting good numbers.

Take out about an hour before hand the next day and it's amazingly supple and easy to work with.

                                                                                                                          I don't really care either way but there seems to be a clear case of double standards at play.
