How many times have we heard that one before? Motorcycles are inherently dangerous single-track, articulated joint vehicles. BUT, maybe, just maybe the average citizen pulling in front of a motorcycle REALLY did not see what was coming.....think about it when ya check THIS out!!!

Is there a motorcycle hire/rental company in Palma that you would recommend? I've used Konik before, but found the range a little Ltd. Virago 535's BMW 650's Etc. I have a house in Puerto Pollensa and find myself going out off season Nov-Feb when all the local hire shops are closed. Looking for something like an LT, RT, FJR, GL, ZZR, or even a big Shadow or F6C that would be available from a short taxi ride from the airport...obliged for any assistance offered.

I think ILLEGITIMUS NON CARBORUNDUM is right. Or am I wrong as well ? :)
"Don't let the bastards grind you down."


Or it could be NIL ILLEGITIMUS CARBORUNDUM. Where can you find an ancient Italian when you need one? :)

But one of my favorites is:
CATAPULTAM HABEO. NISI PECUNIAM OMNEM MIHI DABIS, AD CAPUT TUUM SAXUM IMMANE MITTAM
"I have a catapult. Give me all the money, or I will fling an enormous rock at your head."

when I was 14 (which, when, you might say Latin was our native language round here (UK)), I could have done all my declensions etc., and proved why mine might be correct - but at my age, I can't be A^*&d ;)

My favourite was -

Plato ad sum yam forte, Ceasar aderat, Plato sic in omnibus, Ceasar sic in at !!

"Semper in excreta, solum profundum variat"

but should be ...

Semper in excreta sumus, solum profundum variat.

Thought it was "Plato adsum iam forte"

I'm not suprised your brain hurts, coz your old latin speaking Ma tells you to go off and singularly procrastinate - OK, it's all B*++ S^%$ (or S**^&*># T$£"$ ) :D

I Like this one...

CATAPULTAM HABEO. NISI PECUNIAM OMNEM MIHI DABIS, AD CAPUT TUUM SAXUM IMMANE MITTAM
I have a catapult. Give me all the money, or I will fling an enormous rock at your head.
