Re: Endesa air conditioning

I have been with Endesa over 3 years now. Initially I selected higher potencia not knowing higher cost, later I reduced the potencia both times online while chatting with them on the phone from UK. I have had no problem with their service.

Re: Riding motorbikes

found this online If you passed your driving test before 1 February 2001 you can legally ride a moped (up to 50cc) with no L plates, without taking a CBT course or the full moped test. In this instance you will, however, need to take a CBT if you want to ride anything larger than a 50cc moped. Yes ...

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...
