Waterless Cleaning – Good or Bad?
Steve Saunders takes a look at a new way to clean and shine your prized possession.
For years we cleaned our pride and joy (mainly on a Sunday) with water and washing liquid then along came wax water additives and polishes, glass cleaners, tyre cleaners, wheel cleaners, dashboard cleaners, high-density waxes … the list goes on and before you say anything and email me I know that you can go down to a local car wash that seem to be springing up in every closed down pub car park or shut down petrol station and let them do it, but there still is great satisfaction and yes even pride in cleaning your car or bike yourself plus it can now be quicker. The problem in this day and age is TIME, and that my friend is where a waterless cleaner can most definitely score.
By the time you have driven down to the car wash, queued up and sat there whilst a flock of busy souls clean last week’s grime off one of your most costly possessions you could have done it yourself with a waterless cleaner and be down the pub having lunch!
But it will scratch my car or bike I hear you cry! No it won’t and hears why…

Sample of Legal Assistance
Our Resident Solicitor – Patterson Law
I received an email from an irate member the other day requesting that I help him ‘bring down’ a parking company and its directors for in his words ‘drumming up false claims against him’. Without going into detail about this particular case I thought it would be very useful to you if I laid out some of the basic rights that we have as motorists and motorcyclists have regarding parking and the issuing of fines, it might just save you hundreds of pounds…

Sample of Interviews and Features
The former racing champ has spoken out against the current MotoGP system by David Weston
Motorcycle racing legend Carl Fogarty has branded the MotoGP season as a ‘mess’ ahead of this weekend’s Grand Prix in Texas (April 11-13). The four-time World Superbike champion has criticised the multi-class system currently in place in the premier motorcycle racing championship.
Speaking to MotorbikeTimes, Foggy said: “I find it very confusing and I know a bit about motorcycle racing.
“But for people watching at home or even people within the sport, when I speak to them about MotoGP even they’re confused by the rules.
“You’ve got three classes in one now in MotoGP which is just a mess to be honest. It shouldn’t be like that. It should be, like it’s always been, that everyone is on a similar bike and [playing by] the same rules.
“But it seems to be like three classes in one now, which is very messy and it’s kind of confusing to be honest with you, which is one thing I don’t like.”
Despite these remarks, Fogarty predicted that there will still be plenty of exciting racing ahead: “Luckily, the racing up front is still good between people like Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez and Jorge Lorenzo.
