    The ride quality is even better than my 2016 L200, impressed with it so far. I kept the wheels and chunky tyres from the old one, didn't see the point in paying for the upgrade again, and they go quite nicely with the black.

    Got the new L200 yesterday. Quite impressed with the smoother, quieter feel to it. The little tweaks they have made have made a difference. No satnav in them anymore, you link up your iPhone/android and it runs off google maps.

    He missed the 1700 birds that went in the first pen in July, just realised why you thought we had shot 80%

    A bit out of focus, but I achieved this when trying to drive gently. Usually, I achieve less that 30mpg, so it can be done. As stated earlier, the missus did hit 40mpg once on a run to Scotland at a steady 60mph ps I have ordered a new L200, arrives next week. I think they are great vehicles.

    Don't trust all vets

    Can you clarify whether the original vet you had discussed the necessity to have the operation with was a different vet to that which undertook the operation, it sounds as if this was the case. We have had some not brilliant experiences with our local vet practice where we have recently dealt with a young vet who is a "text-book" practitioner (as described by the experienced practice vet) rather than actually utilising any common sense/experience. Our experienced is not too complimentary about their methodology. We have specified that we no longer wish to be seen by this particular vet.

    It is indeed. She even sent me a pic of the display as I didn't believe her......think it was at 39.8 at the time. I tried to go canny on a decent run thereafter and achieved 36mpg, so it certainly can be done. Generally I drive pretty quickly so it doesn't get much chance to break 30mpg.

    My other half has had up to 40mpg on our 2016 Barbarian with the cruise set at 60moh on trips to Scotland. I have had high 30's but usual under 30 as I'm a bit harder with the right foot on such trips. Just ordered a new one

    What a mess!

    surely for tax to be "fair" everybody should be taxed at the same rate on their earnings?

    Breeding - first time

    Worming every couple of weeks too, whelping box, heat lamps, bedding Unless the stud dog owner fancies a pup from the combined lines then it is generally a fee. If a proven stud dog then fee is payable upon a tied mating, if no litter produced then generally a free mating next time bitch is in season 'should' be offered. With an unproven stud dog, you need to negotiate payment on a pregnancy I'd say. Potential vet bills if anything goes wrong with the bitch giving birth. Time is the key factor.

    I have always fancied a trip over the channel but I think my Fireblade would cripple me on such a trip!!
