Trees in flames, roofs on fire and a lot of damaged cars.
I'm guessing the insurance companies will have the get out clause, ' It was god who done it'
Technical and tyres
I use a full face shoei helmet at about £170 is a good price as i cant afford to spend £400 on an arai. I use to use mx lids in the summer on my old bike.
when my lid is past it i my do the hammer test ie hit the top of the lid with a lump hammer and see what happens then cut off the straps before i bin iit.
I was most aggrieved to received an email from BT yesterday.
Whilst the sums involved are relatively modest (for now) it still means i will have to pay £60 per year that i had not expected.
I have advised Ofcom of my concerns, whilst they dont deal with individual cases, i do think that their widespread and prolonged advertising of "free" motogp coverage was misleading could be seen as obtaining money by deception, ie tountamount to fraud.
Complaints now sent to BT and Ofcom and letter to MCN editor. Doubt it will get anywhere but good to vent!
From what I can tell, IF there is "small print" that facilitates this change, the term itself would fall under the UNFAIR CONTRACT TERMS ACT <- doubtless plenty of info on the WWW on this... And if the term is unfair/a contravention of Contract Law, the resulting advantage certainly is!!
( See above: I cut an paste the reply I had from CAB in this thread ^^^)
Good to see that you've escalated your own case; for my part, I've contacted Trading Standards (via CAB) - but I will take a pointer from you and refer to OfCom too!
The more people that voice their opinions on this, the better!

Legal and insurance
all the motorcycle luggage i've bought tells you how much weight is safe and also what max. speed they reccomend.
not that most of us really stick to it. and what happens if the rider is vastly overweight or super-skinny? i don't think there's much they can do about it but they will ask what you were carrying when you had an accident, or at least my insurance company has just asked me that question. luckily i could put my hand on my heart and tell them with a clear conscience. I was sad enough to weigh my tail pack and tank bag before i put them on the bike.
