Same reason BMW use M and, worse still, Competition, on X variants!

Re: The MotoGP Thread

So what do we think about Lorenzo's retirement? I'm not surprised, but it's a shame to see a 5x World Champion leave like this, regardless of whether you're a fan of his or not.

Re: UK Drone Registration

The issue is though, as has been stated, that someone who wants to cause 'trouble' with their drone won't bother registering in the first place, and with operators hard to locate it's just a pointless exercise. But with a well publicised registration scheme, then there’s little difficulty establish...

Is this registration/test a precursor to introducing harsher rules/penalties/enforcement?
It's law, you have to register them or face prosecution. Nothing to do with "being bothered" like our favourite fantasist says up top.

Why didn't you immediately dial 999?

Re: The Movie Thread

Went to see Joker last night. Probably the film of the year for me by a country mile. If you've ever been around someone with severe mental health issues it really strikes a chord in a lot of ways.

One hell of a way to introduce a character.

Re: Philips Hue - thoughts?

My entire house inside and out is lit by Hue. It's good stuff.

I too had to fiddle with the frequencies as I've got a lot of wireless shizzle in here. I control mine mostly from the Apple Home interface, with geofenced routines and other time based stuff, but you can do it from the Hue app too.

I've booked the local specialist to do the belts and valves on the 748 in a couple of weeks, since it's a bit beyond my time and desire to get oily these days. Hopefully there will be some nice days to follow I can have a little tootle round on it. The R1250RT had it's 1st 600 mile service on Saturd...
