Salutations back, J Dexter :) Thanks for your post. Although the balance of opinion seems to be engine mounts, it sounds generally like a damn good overhaul is required. The roads in Northern Ireland (on the whole) are better than in the Republic of Ireland which has seen a highway building campaign going on around Dublin. Here in Northern Ireland, the roads can be a fairly mixed bag. The motorways (Amer: freeways - but not as wide) are very good. Most trunk roads can be fairly good although some fall short of the mark with poorly repaired surfaces in places. Minor roads can range from very good to not so good!!!! Bit a road building campaign going on in the Greater Belfast area. I travel from a very rural area through Belfast (and out the other side) to get to where I work. The roads can range from excellent to badly repaired. I can appreciate your point about the quality of the roads. Where in the world are you, if you don't mind me asking?
