Petition To Allow Lane Filtering For Motorcyclists In Germany

GERMANY ONLY:
Hallo Biker - wo bleibt der Zusammenhalt ???

Los jetzt, es sind nur noch ein paar Tage und wir haben gerade die HÄLFTE geschafft. Hin und Unterzeichnen.

Laut Straßenverkehrsordnung (StVO) sind außerorts auch Motorräder in Stausituationen auf deutschen Straßen zum Stillstehen verpflichtet. Nach geltender Rechtslage ist sowohl das Hindurchschlängeln zwischen stehenden Fahrzeugreihen als auch die Benutzung der Standspur verboten. Der Zweiradfahrer wird wie ein Autofahrer verpflichtet, fahrbereit am Kraftrad zu bleiben; ein Abstellen des Motorrades auf der Fahrbahn ist nicht gestattet. Ob und wenn...

+Sam C that sounds reasonable, anyone should be happy with that and lane splitting under those guidelines should be globally acceptable.
In Bangkok, lane splitting is a necessary art and riding along pavements and even through crowded markets seems to be accepted. Never seen traffic like it there. Very few accidents though.

Tax Havens - Hiding The Money That Should Be Spent On Our Communities

#greedy   #banksters   #avarice   #taxdodging  
The Bank for International Settlements has produced data on money held in tax havens, which would be invaluable in the fight against corruption. But there’s just one problem. They won’t make it public. Sign the petition now.

Same comparison can be made for the amusingly termed, "free market" economic system, where you have no birthright share or access in the land, you have to work as a slave, so you can rent land you never really own.
(And no, communism, socialism and neo-liberalism are no different, they the same fraudulent system, just with different monopolists of the land ownership)

Stopped off for lunch and the food was delicious and great value. The owner rides a Goldwing and we had a great talk about our bike tours. There is a circular room on one side of the hotel that has a large BBQ in the centre of it. On the photos it shows up as a large round chimney. The roads and views around here are fantastic alongside the River Aragon and in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Well worth a visit and a chat.

Good price, friendly people and nice rooms. Unlike most hotels they don't charge extra for parking your motorbike in their garage.

I'm related to Mark the owner so I'm biased but I had a pre-opening taste of the Boston Pulled Pork and it was delicious. The freshly ground Caffe Latte was nice too.

Ate there on Sunday 13/04/14 and it was like stepping back in to some of my old industrial workplaces. Apparently it's a former forge for knives? The salmon starter that my wife and daughter had was delicious if a bit on the small side. The main meals were great with the beef and lobster with roast spuds and tasty mixed veg. The sweet Lemon Meringue was a bowl of lemon curd with some meringue's on top. Eton Mess wasn't available even though on the menu and the coffee was the worst Latte I've ever tasted. I did get a free scoop of ice-cream as a sort of compensation. They had just catered for around 1,000 Liverpool fans watching the match on the massive screen so maybe there's an excuse for the toilets being a total mess. I loved being in the massive old factory but *Camp and Furnace* need to make a few more changes to get it right.

I've eaten at Meson Maigmo many times and the food has been delicious every time and I don't say that about many places. The Steak sandwich is also good for a quick bar snack. The staff are really friendly and the owner helped us buy a couple Ducks one Christmas after one of the staff had overheard us wondering where we would be able to buy them! Great place.

Stayed for one night. Victorian house decorated in the style of the period. Picked up the keys from 'Tomneys Bar' just a couple of doors up and also owned by the same family. Julianna made us welcome and a nice breakfast in the morning. We ate at the Ryandale Inn which was OK but nothing special. Took a look around Moy Antiques, also owned by Juliannas family. If you get the chance take a look around - it's like a Tardis!
