EdgeRanger my question on speeds, distance, height, & fuel capacity are not going to have you wondering now--are they? Just because we Cdns use the metric system.
Well to be honest when I put down my weight it is in lbs for my bathroom scale is in lbs, my height has bee around the same for some yrs, bar becoming stooped, while weight of powder I use in my reloads is in grains & not grams, & so many more. Those & so many more are still in the mind as what was used here in North America for so many yrs.
Back in '77 I was two days in court, last part of September, over RCMP that had charged me with Dangerous Driving (a Capital Offence in Cdn) on a Honda CB400F m/c & the two cops were trying to use metric lingo. My lawyer said that since the incident took place in April & not July (change over to so much metric crap) that they please use the (what ever he called it) now in court.
Also since I am so lousy with numbers or memory I can always recall that one due to the Criminal Offence.
