It's a fallacy, we just live life quicker, and don't spend so much of it in traffic queues. )

Yorkshire.........................No 1 for fat blokes according to the news..........result!

Shorter life expectancy? thats right, its grim oop North, you boys stay where you are darn sarf, and leave the stuff like over drinking, over eating, underexercising in the Gym, over exercising in the bedroom, and riding like loons on the road to us



got to go, the pie van is on its way round


Yum, Yum, PIE

We moved back up north in 1988, it was a rat race back then and the rats were winning. :big grin:

There are limits

Ya can over do it ya know.

I'd stop at SW France given the option. A few miles inland from Cannes/Frejus.

Judging by the age of the customers at the local vinyards in their beaten up Renault 4s I'd say that was about the optimum

Don't go that far, I think the longest life expectancy in Europe is in France

Good NHS (maybe not for long again ), quality food, don't work too much, small nap after lunch, having a good laugh at our european neighbours (makes us live longer)... how do you want us to die?

And because we're **** at racing bikes, we don't do it and so don't even take as many risks as you
