New car incoming - a Skoda VRS.

Honestly, I think Skoda make better cars than 95% of the market lol.

Edit: I've just spent around 3 months looking at new cars for around £37 - 42k and every time i looked at what you got and what the drive was like i always had the Skoda at the top. Even trying to be objective about it, the Skoda came top. I really wanted a new merc 220d estate AMG line but it was a pile of shit.

anyway, cool story, i'm buying a 2nd hand skoda and keeping the rest.

I wish not wearing a mask disqualified people from getting medical treatment. All the gwamps of the world would just drop dead, with their last breath cursing 5G and coronahoax.

Maz, you're going too far.
Don't wish that to anyone.

Lady Carlos has a Merc B Class as neither of us could recommend it; the quality just isn't there

Testdrove the VW ID.3.
Not the comfort that you'd expect from VW. The tech is topnotch but right now not worth the price for admission.
Maybe next year.

Gramps, why do you exit each corner with a little swerve inwards?

Great. Here's a tl;dw for this video:
- The video is edited like someone who has just discovered text effects and transitions in Adobe After Effects would.
- Gramps is like an obstinate teenager and plays his music so everyone can hear it.
- They're riding at geriatric speeds.
- Gramps can't ride for shit. I'd love to see Kracus tear into this as well. It's incredibly clear Gramps treats his bike like a lounge chair with wheels. I'm sure that's a common Harley Davidson rider thing to do, but it's just so sad to see. He also wobbles through corners, doesn't follow a sharp line through but kind of veers off to one side and back again. It's like someone is riding a bike with a complete disinterest in the method of transport. Gramps could be in a lounge chair carried by four Mexican kids and he'd still act like he's all tough and shit.
- Gramps can't spell "national". Writes it as "nation" in the video title and "nathonal" in the video itself. Come on Gramps, proof read your shit.
- Gramps chews gum like a mouth breather.
- It's too long, I didn't watch. It gets incredibly dull.

So the noise of the engine doesn't bother me at all, it's one of the few defining characteristics of Harley that I actually enjoy when it isn't amplified to a ludicrous level. That's about the extent of what's good about this video though. It's all downhill from there so Gramps, this is where you should stop reading, I mean it's not a video so you probably didn't get this far.


It's hard to judge how good his riding is because it's akin to judging a monkey riding a jungle jim. The fact he's able to maintain that riding position for longer than 10 minutes is honestly impressive. Almost as impressive as his patriotism, I mean once upon a time it was considered an insult to America to drape the american flag on anything but a flag pole. Today however, it's perfectly acceptable to use it as a bug stop while chewing what I assume is tobacco because that somehow seems way cooler than bubble gum for the entire video. Like, is he talking to me this entire time? I'm not sure but the accompanying music says a lot about this man, it says I'm a real american but I also like eurobeats so lets mash country music and disco together and then proceed to blare it out at everyone I ride by while wearing a salad bowl on my head. Should I fall face first on the ground I'll be protected by patriotism and shattered glass in my eyes like a real man.

I am however very jealous of those roads. Those are the types of roads I crave to toss the bike around and get excited about. Gwamps however is seen providing tree's a modern rendition of cotton eyed joe while simultaneously riding a barn through the scenery. His desire to find the center line is somewhat disturbing but not surprising given that his bike is the width of a car, I guess I'd probably have a bit of a wobble on take offs too if I had to handle the weight of 3 bikes.

I am impressed with the editing though, how the screen blacks out and the music somehow doesn't get cut off is actually well done. It's too bad the video is about 10 minutes too long, I think the length of one song would be sufficient because you can't expect anyone to sit through more than that. It's like watching a tube goer go down a lazy river, after about 2 corners you've seen all there is to see there.

You going to be okay bro?

- I agree the texts effects are cheesy. Cheesy is fun/funny to me. I got a chuckle out of it.
- I was playing the music loud enough to be picked up over the wind by the camera. The music cuts out for periods of time because we were in the mountains and I was losing signal.
- We were riding at approximate 50 MPH. 15 MPH above posted speed. Plus it wasn't a race. We (myself and the other riders) were also enjoying the view. Never mind the fact that I almost hit a deer on 3 different occasions during the 3 days we were there. Slam into one of those guys at an impossible stopping speed. I'll give you a racing trophy, genius.
- It's a cruiser, not a street bike. The fat front tire kit I installed gives the front end more roll. So the bike tends to wobble a bit on recovery. Nothing that isn't manageable. We were also at the end of day 3. 1600-1800 miles of riding. Most people don't ride 1800 miles in a month. Needless to say, I wasn't "fresh".
- I can spell it. You just said I did. I made a mistake. Oh, no...
- Yeah, I wish I wasn't chewing gum. It doesn't look good.
- It was too long. But I was trying to put together a complete section of road. Something that could be watched with measure. Something I thought the other guys that rode with me would be interested to see and possibly reflect on. I didn't expect that anyone but myself and those guys would watch the entire video. I expected most people would watch the first couple of minutes and skip through to the end.

Thanks for your unsolicited review. It was clearly biased and uninformed. You sound destroyed by the whole experience. Maybe you should go fuck yourself. Literally.

*edit: I know you watched all of it looking for things to shit on. You probably watched 4 or 5 times. GG's. :olo:

Congrats, especially at this time.

I've also been part of the lucky ones. I'm going back to work soon for the same company but got a rise and a better job. It's hard because i've made a lot of friends in this company and lots of them haven't made it. They are good people too.
