  1. An article on firefighting motorcycles for the UAE was posted a few weeks ago. Interesting that a UK city is trialling them.

    I suspect other ex-Poms like me will be amused that the picture illustrating their use shows a torched Vauxhall Corsa. Presumably, given rising petrol prices, even the car thieves are downsizing, 'cos it always used to be an Astra :D.
  2. What an approach for them to take in the UAE where it is possible to ride about 3 months a year as it is so friggin hot.

    If the idiots there learnt how to drive in the first place, they wouldn't need such a solution :-s
  3. Oops, missed that one.
