UK TV Channels for free

Hi its been a while as I have Spanish satellite now but the usual online sources for ITV and BBC all seem to be paid subscription. I believe the last web page I used was Transponder TV but its no longer free. I certainly do not want to go through the Kodi app route as the buffering is unbearable. Ca...

Re: Riding motorbikes

and just to add the Gib police of clamping down heavy on this as obviously a driving licence is not enough to ride into gib on a 125cc. I believe they have a lower limit of 100cc which essentially mean 50cc. ironically these are the bikes that all the La Linea tobacco smugglers use. Coincidence??? T...

Re: Riding motorbikes

You can with a uk car licence ride a 125cc under i believe 15cv (horsepower) I say this because you can buy a new scooter 125 cc which will be great. You CAN NOT however get an 2T (2 stroke) Aprilia RS 125, they are no 4 stroke how both these racing road bikes can do 180 kph with some modifications....
