I note your profile lists you as a consultant', what topic do you consult for? Is it driving?

The John Miles book is indeed a good read, and HB copies can be found at not too great a price if you look on secondhand sites such as abebooks.com (I think mine cost under a tenner). It's a reprint from the 1980s I think.

Many other good ones out there too.

No not at all.


'Not driving' or 'not consulting'? If not driving, then what? It's interesting and useful to know someone's background when discussing topics.

Just hope you're not a consultant on the correct use of the English language.

Unlike you, I differentiate between language and literature: English literature was never high on my list of achievements but I do like to keep my use of the language accurate. There's no excuse for sloppy English just because it's an internet forum.
Oh, I do so agree with your modified signature.

I used to do that if I braked to a halt in whatever gear I approached the junction in ( as I would have done in a car ) then clicked down into neutral once stopped .

Getting a block change wrong at speed and locking up the back wheel could have been disastrous - I never tried it .
