I agree wholeheartedly... I too just hate m/ways, make me sore all over...
But I can do >500km/>300miles a day on twisty mountain roads and feel absolutely fine, tired maybe, but zero discomfort...

Yeah and those pterodactyls are indeed annoying :lol:

Isn't it the person who finds it and not kills it that gets to keep it?

Yes, if you kill it and then go back to collect it, it can be classed as poaching. If you find it already squished into the road there is no problem with taking it for the pot :)

Maybe the area for a future BritSToc?
I love being right. If only it happened more often...

Ah... that's why you guys organise group rides so the sweeper scoops up what's been hit by the guys ahead... a so called RTE... ;)
