Any kind anons know the style of license plate that is on the Brough Superior? If it has name?

Are they street legal?

It's just a vintage Euro style front plate. It has nothing specific to do with a Brough. In addition to other Brit bikes, you can also see them on old BMWs and other Euro bikes. Some people mount reproduction ones with the model and year. Running a vintage Euro front plate is probably no more illegal than keeping a Euro rear plate. Obviously you still need a current and legal plate for your jurisdiction.

If you cut a pedestrian in two, you're probably liable though.
>>
>>919200
I don't know why I thought one or the other. Of course I should keep the original back plate and just have a replica on the front. Thanks

I'll look into purchasing or producing my own plate housing for my bike.

I wouldn't do it unless it's a prewar bike.

I've got no interest in trains, but I did look at taking the cross-Canada tour (I live in western BC). It was going to be around $6800 before fees and taxes to go one way.

you sound like you're not in europe or japan so

grab a southwest flight to chicago
ride cta and metra all day
check out the four major train stations chicago has - union station, ogilvie transportation center, la salle street station, and randolph street station

take amtrak's empire builder from chicago union station to glacier national park and check out the park. or just to wisconsin dells and play at the dells for a day. or whatever. from chicago you can go pretty much anywhere.

I need help with bikes in general. I wanna start cycling but don't know shit about it. I wanna have pic related but don't know what type it is. The boke that I plan to get is supposedly for daily commute when I don't feel like driving because of the traffic. Is the pic related suitable?keep in mind I have zero knowledge about bikes and I really am interested to know more. Shit like
-brands
-materials
-cost
-parts
-overall judgement of said brands and products
I wanna get into it but I feel hopeless and most that I know that are into bikes are faggots and or have mixed judgement with one another about giving me advices because they just end up shitting on each other.

How do we fix LA's public transportation?
35 replies and 7 images submitted. Click here to view.

Problems I observed:

1. Very little public transportation infrastructure for such a big city
2. Redundancy: a lot of the routes run in the same direction, as opposed to going in different directions to cover more area
3. Extension plans "derailed" by big car corporations on a daily basis

>comparing a country to a continent

lel

Also LA has been built around automobiles since the 1920s. Nearly every suburb in the county since the 1920s has been built with automobile transportation in mind. It's not like you can go back to the Red Car days of the 1900s in any meaningful way.

They are just as favorable as magnesi frames, and a little neater than plastic.
>>
>>918465
how are they on the materials side of things? ride quality, stiffness, weight etc.
>>
Bamboo bikes were a big fad about 5 years ago - by all accounts they're plenty strong enough for hard riding, but they're somewhat heavy and usually quite flexible (lots of variation between frames though). Take away the cool factor associated with the aesthetic and easy DIY frame building and there's nothing special about bamboo frames, which is probably why the trend has waned.

That lowlife scum had apparently driven only 1000 km in his life, had a truck driving license only since 2012 and already done 19 traffic offences. Still for some reason this guy is allowed to drive trucks...

Why bars come down only about 15 sec before train comes? In Poland, it is usually longer, and the "right" one usually comes down before "left" so even retarded driver like him could survive.

Phew, it has been quite a while since I have been here.

Not even sure if such a thing would even fall under here or within /a/, as it does originate from an anime.

Anyway, after deciding to rewatch a few old shows of my "childhood", I came across an old favorite of mine called "The Galaxy Railways".

Basically its about flying trains that can travel into space and whatnot. I could go more into detail, but who the hell wants to listen to that shit?

So I'll just get to the point.

Is it possible, that in the far, far future,...

No. The trains in GE999 were figurative devices to begin with, and the Galaxy Railways spinoff that takes them somewhat more seriously as technology is completely absurd - the whole point of rails is to distribute heavy loads, sp there would be no advantage to rails in a zero gravity environment, and in practice would needlessly complicate space travel.

The 999 TV series is still one of the best anime ever made.
>>
>>917907

Eh, I figured the same as well once I thought over it for a while.

No reason to blow off presumably trillions of dollars on something that will render as quite ineffective in modern times.

Still though, you have to admit it would seem rather cool to see those mile long American freight consists speed throughout the skies , hauled by dual ES44AC Road Switchers or ||>Insert popular locomotive here<|| whatnot.


But yeah.

GE999 rules over all.

What might work are some kind of space tugboats or pushers.

I was wondering, are there any small portable parachutes that you can quickly put on in a danger scenario?

Lets say you are in an airship and something goes wrong. Since airships don't crash as fast as planes and neither fly as high I'd guess you would have time to jump out of it.

A parachute that you can wear with normal clothing. Something that takes 2 minutes to put on.

Also enjoy
