    Car Throttle: "don`t do it if you`re allergic" American youth: "challenge accepted" (only spelled wrong) Asshole bikers: nobody gives a shit about *your* life, respect others people`s lives and crash somewhere remote instead, thank you.

    I am trying to pick out the stupidest thing I ever did when trying to repair something. It has to be trying to bump start a well tuned enduro bike, which is basically a road legal off road racing bike. I was running along side, jumped on, dumped the clutch and as it sparked up, the front wheel flew up, deposited me on my rrrrs and proceeded to wheelie across a car park, Fortunately nobody was hurt and only my vehicle and pride were injured!

    hey guys, regarding Gareth talking about not going to mechanic, would you think about starting series on how to fix your engine? Like I mean really thorough one taking all usual engines into account, for example how would I detect what's wrong with my mk3 mondeo tdci

    A guy had just told me, 20+ yrs as ASE tech & A&P Spec, that he was now a better mechanic after 3 days watching YT repair videos. So I watched him remove all the lug nuts and then start jacking up the car. It was on a hill, out of gear only held by E-brake. I was amazed it didn't shift position and crash down on the frame sending wheels everywhere, until he was bending over to pull the 1st off.

    All my cars are practically a kit car after all the personalization & discomfort modifications are installed. There's a modification shop 5 miles away from me, and they restore original AC Cobras and will hand build a 850hp new vin model under their name.

    here's an idea for some videos as well as promoting safer bike riding - why not do your IAM or ROSPA advanced training. As an observer for IAM (we're not allowed to be called trainers) I can honestly say that it will make a world of difference to your biking experience... and it's NOT all bearded people doing 40mph everywhere (and that's the frmales 🤣)

    Regularly watching your podcasts somewhere in the north of Portugal, in my garage, in front of my half dismantled 94 fiat punto restoration project which I inherited from my grandfather. More of a sentimental value to the car than the actual pre-classic value of it once, although it is a rare spec, it still is just a 1.2 old punto with 325k km on the clock. Keep up the good work guys.

I ripped my pants off and thrust my groin under a running tap to a chorus of laughter from my mates! It stung excruciatingly for 5 minutes.

    My friend died in may this year because he was riding like an utter cock womble. Estimated at over 120mph in a 20mph residential area at 5am. 4x4 pulled out of a notoriously blind junction, my mate grab the front brake dropped the front and hit the car at over 90mph. The last hour of his life he suffered the worst injuries I’ve ever seen someone breath with. He was the nicest guy I met but one hell of a dick head on a bike. The car driver was never at fault, he didn’t stand a chance and has to live with this for the rest of his life. I ride every day, riding is my life but people need to go on track for those speeds.
