    heh, you missed your homework, too. Top Gear never did in Baltics, so the rest part of the story about stolen cars from UK in there is crap. Try one more time, now using key word "Balcans" ;)

    I do remember a Polish radio station contest. It challenged listeners to come up with a slogan to encourage Germans to vacation in Poland. The one I remember was, "Come to Poland, your car's already here". As an American Pole, that made me laugh!:lol3

    I am betting "lemon" isn't exactly right. More like "liberated from the original owner." I am pretty sure that's what happened to my two week old KTM 990 in London...

    Sorry...I haven't been back to the UK since 1987 so I missed the Euro thing but they now have this tunnel which goes to France. What's that all about? Does anybody use that tunnel thing?

    The tunnel is a railway tunnel, turn up, park your bike in a railway carriage and in 45 mins or so you are in Calais France.

    Very quick and efficient, not that cheap.

    It is on the Afgan/Pakistan border that road traffic from Europe changes back from driving on the right to driving on the left, then India SriLanka Malaya Japan all drive on the left. This is one of the reasons why there is a big trade in second hand japanese high end cars in the UK.

    It still amazes me that people know so little about basics on other countries. We still use MPH here in the UK and while Ireland has moved to Euros, Northern Ireland, England, Wales, Scotland and surrounding isles use pounds. Sterling is still pounds.

    While living in Australia for 2 years...I ran across many Ozzies who knew WHO THE US PRESIDENT was...but also...could name almost every person in the U.S. Cabinet!

    I'll bet, right now, that there's less than 1% of American's who can tell you WHO THE PRIME MINISTER of Australia is!:huh

    Answer: Julia Gillard for the 99%.
    PS..."John Howard" was a better PM.

    Brush up?

    There are many Americans who don't know a thing about their country, its politics and who holds various offices much less who the PM of a foreign land is.

    For most Americans, take away their cell phone and they can't function.
