Anybody free tomorrow afternoon? I'm thinking of going down to Arthur's Seat to do some filming for a little project to help kill my time while my engine is being rebuilt.
If you have a gopro (or can borrow one) please do, as I want to get as much footage to work with as possible :)

They changed the limit up to of the mountain to fn 80.
Fellow Rotor fans gather now for our daily prayer.....

As I lay rubber down the street,
I pray for traction I can keep,
But if I spin and start to slide,
Please dear god protect my sweet ride.

Amen

So cars are getting safer but speeds are slower than a 70s Kingswood had.

I hate politicians today. How about instead of lowering speed limits they spend the money on driver education.
Oh that's right. No revenue in education.
