Something to break the boredom

If you're like me [you probably aren't] you're watching way too much YouTube.  I never knew there was SO MUCH content.  Anyway, if you have an hour take a look at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DomAl5gDZ8Q . It's James May [from Top Gear] riding a homemade sidecar rig around the course at the Isle of Man.  AND, it's made out of Meccano [Erector Set] pieces.  For the first half you laugh at how dumb it is and by the second half you're pulling for him to make it all the way.  Highly entertaining and there sidecar content sort of.

Al, you link says "video not on available"

Y use to laugh most of the time I see that man on a screen. Please try to use the "share this video" option, that uses to give a better working link code 

Quote something like: Meccano did put errors delibertely into the manual

Hello Al,

you are right. now I found the video and it says "Video blocked in your country"

I could see some minor "handmade videos" of that rig. very nice including some British humour.

Thanks

Sven

Nice, just what I need in this time of shelter in place. Ran out of videos to watch.
