Spelled out it means that on a vessel (aircraft): Red is on the left (port) side, Green is on the right (starboard) side, (White is aft) - so a red light on the right means the vessel is coming at you.

Except in Vermont (being the sinister bass-turds they are)
Red, right, returning is nautical. It refers to the buoyage system marking a dredged channel. The red buoy is always on the right side when returning to port or proceeding upstream if it's a river. When leaving, it's the opposite. A black buoy denotes mid-channel and is equivalent to a center stripe on a road.

Or, a bigger more-powerful bike, with less riding skills and PPE.

The best car I've ever owned is my 2002 Eurovan GLS. The worst was the 2004 Phaeton V8 I just traded in. A horrible, horrible car.

scoring scandal!

It has been brought to my attention that Mr Jim VB was not actually the first one with the correct answer although this is, at best a debatable issue.

Having said this while Mr. JVB answered the question Mr. FL posted the answer after something about the VT coat of arms.

Rather than have to send this to the council of councils I declare a tie so both get their pint of real VT. Maple.

Sure. If you keep such records you can send it to the same address that we used for the maintenance DVD, otherwise pm for more.
