Congratulations mate, well done. Does that mean you’re now fully qualified to murder prostitutes? :wink:

Fully fledged member of the Church of England then. You can grow the frier belly at the truck stops. Well done mate but earn what you can while you can and save before the autonomous vehicles arrive. You maybe the last generation that actully get's to drive and you will definitely in the not so distant future be seeing the changes. I hate to say it but this is one of those industrys that will end up like the high street shop. You may find you will be better off working your way into management as it will be a bit longer before the bots control that too. Mind you one could argue that they are allready assimilated and part of the collective.

It’ll be a very long time before they make tippers autonomous mate as some old timer drivers can’t even get the trucks into some of the places we have to tip !!

Now that I’ve paid for the class 1 and sorted my garage out ,I have one more thing to save up for and the bike fund begins .
I want a v4 next but I’m stuck between a full build (vfr track bike) or buy an aprilia rsv4 for the track .
I know it needs to be a v4 tho as I’ve never had one .

Been listing some unused parts I had in the garage for the Honda NSR250 MC16 that I owned for a few months before deciding it was too much trouble all things considered. They're mostly pattern parts, things like brake and fork seals.

Came across a hefty packet with some All Balls tapered headrace bearings in. Turns out they fit the Firestorm so I don't have to sell them and have some ready for when mine go :D

Also, there's a Kyoto bearing for the sprocket carrier which is the same size as the one for the Firestorm so that can stay as well.
