I switched away from Virgin Media years ago as I found them increasingly expensive, and the customer service was poor. BT start with special offers but manage to ramp up the charges over the months until it becomes uneconomical to stay with them any longer. At the end of my 18 month contract I was glad to get away.
I have been with Talk Talk for a few years, and although we customers suffered the data hack/theft, the monthly bill is more reasonable than most. No unusual activity on my bank account to report, but I do still get regular calls from the dodgy Indian call centre.....
Technical and tyres
I have a RST Paragon 4 jacket which has removable lining and vents front and back with little straps on the front that pull the vent open when you unzip it. It better had be cool coz I'm off to the south of France at the end of June for 3 weeks touring.

I have been car driving for the past 15 years or so; recently have decided
to pursue full A category via DAS. Have done some training practice for 2
days with a great school in Leicester using MT07 bike. Great laugh and
However, examiner in Leicester Wigston has failed my MOD 1 test by
marking me down on driving to fast on slalom and figure of eight (2 rider
faults). Actual speed was 4-5mph during exercise. Last rider fault I was
marked down for driving to fast on slow control. Actual speed was 3-4mph.
3 rider faults resulted in serious fail.
My instructor wasn't able to believe the result as I was riding real well; and
according to him; my speed during maneuvers was acceptable if not
perfect. I had good control of the bike at all times. Completed all exercises
with correct observations, adequate speed during fast maneuvers, etc.
I have approached DVSA helpline and their "senior examiner team"have
confirmed that slalom and figure of 8 can not be failed based on speed. Full
control of the bike is what required.
Did anyone have any similar experiences where examiner marked you down to fail you deliberately?
