they did not like the back lights

Lack of 'E' marking ?

But hey you got a pass,
I have taken a fair number of trikes to the Avonmouth test centre,
still yet to have one pass first time,
or fail on something that was not a relatively quick fix,
I swear the man is justifying his wage,
but if it gets a 'pass' down to a short snagging list,
then we just got to go with that,
well done just the same,
no doubt there will other minors things which will refine the beast as time passes,
Is it too soon to ask 'on road first impressions' ?

Cheers for the heads up on that one Punky,

I renewed blindly with Adrian Flux as usual back in June,
don't recall price
(I find it better not to, but if it broke the bank, I would remember, over hundred, less than two)
but when I first tried insuring my Subaru,
well the few I phoned before Flux,
all said no after a short pause and me having mentioned 'Subaru' and the cc,

John Lance had had the same with his Saab trike,
(images of Stig Blomqvist flying through air presumably)

So I admit not even wanting to try to swap insurance companies due to the pain
that is dealing with paper pushers on a good day,
I am better with metal and numbers.

I went in to the Halifax, local branch where I am known by counter staff,
tried to open a current account,
went armed with Driving license, Passport, pile of utility bills etc,
driving license current but no photo,
passport expired four days previous but hey nice photo,
no good,
muppet has no answer as to what I should bring as proof of ID,
even a bill from them to me at the address,
why you send me bill if you doubt who I am,
none of it,
I walked.

I wrote to the head man in person,
I questioned the logic of allowing a person thousands of pounds credit,
but having a problem with allowing that same customer to open an account to pay money in to,
needless to say I got no reply.

How Fred Flintstone manages to switch accounts on the TV add I do not know.

Is it me or is the world getting dumber ?
