    looked at my saddlebag this morning and the light bracket looked a little sketchy, so I threaded a tiewrap through the bracket and the loop on the saddlebag.

    Stopped at a junction 20miles into the ride to put the light on and discovered that the loop on the saddlebag had failed and thus the light (and tiewrap) had slid off......

    ..... looks like we're going to be starting a "recommend me a light" a little earlier this year.

    Lorry firm S&J Transport ordered to close, following death of Dr Suzanns Bull on her bike in 2017, because the driver had a tray on his dashboard blocking the view... And the firm were aware of the driver's practice of doing this!

    It just makes me feel very sad that the plain stupidity of the driver and his employer has cost this woman her life.
    All the censored blocking his view would have to be removed for the vehicle to pass its annual test.
    I suppose S&J Transport will now be trading under another name .
