    You have to be careful with humor. European humor is different. You could be looked upon a a genuine troll.

    What's the fig bucking "L" sticker on the front of your modern bike?

    Between that and those horrendous license plates you're probably down 20 mph on top(don't know how much in metric).

    I thought England went metric. Which is why their bikes are so fast.

    Yeah, you're right we did around 1972 but for some reason speedometers and speed signs are still in mph but we buy petrol in litres [V]

    I was over in Ireland in the 70s. Went into a hardware store to get some nails. There was a guy looking at some 1"X 8" board. "How much is this board?" "Its 2 pound 76 per metre sir" "Great! Can I have 8 foot p;ease?" The salesman didn't blink. Measured off 8 feet no problem. I had a bit of a laugh.

    When I was younger I was a toolmaker and we constantly had to convert between metric and imperial from the same drawing just to make up the same piece of kit. This became the norm especially after just having converting from pounds, shillings and pence to the metric system in 1972.

    One pound originally consisted of 20 shillings, and a shilling was made up of 12 pence (therefore 140 pence to the pound), but now there was 100 pence to the pound. Much easier you think... not to my Grandparents, they were still converting until they died in the 1990s.

    Then low and behold what pops up, the bloody Euro!
