    Due to a change of ownership I'm not involved in seeing this build though on site though the design is all mine and the details as planned. This was a bugger of a site and technically difficult build but coming together very much as planned Just thought I'd share.

    Views on today's cycle route

    First day I've really given the new bike a good run today. Views at the Scottish Open and some open land on the A96. We are very fortunate to live in a place like this - when the weather is this good, not many places I'd rather be.

    I am the opposite, I like people seeing the fact they have been left standing by a nice diesel saloon that has a good looking rear end rather than a greenhouse on the back Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD

    Points about wages are true, but I think another important factor is that the general trend in ownership has moved to one of expected change (contract-lease cars in particular) so there is a general assumption that people will just "get a new one in a year or so" and they won't be fussed (or they will claim on insurance). Also people will generally assume (maybe subconsciously) that other people live by their values, so (well-paid or otherwise) garage mechanics may not even see the damage as a problem if they have a throwaway car or something on a contract that will be replaced in a relatively short space of time. The idea of somebody keeping an item like a car for years and years is now quite alien, even compared to only 10 years ago, so many of the people working on them now will not have grown up with the mind set of preservation, and will have been trained in an environment of the disposable part rather than that of understanding and fixing the problem or (even better) preventing the problem in the first place. This is obviously where the holy grail is a garage run by a trained person with experience and a passion for your make of car- vocation for the job and understanding of their subjects will naturally ensure they do the right thing. Maybe we should set up a forum5 garage service!
