Re: Tyres - available grip during cornering?

I never intentionally slide the bike but at this time of year it happens. As Mike mentioned salt slime is lethal especially on roundabouts. Gone wide a few times ( not helped by the appalling condition of the roads). Was out a couple of weeks ago and got caught by some snow ( not forecast) that was ...

Re: GBOL & DSG Gearbox

Potential thread hijack (sorry) Why are people still talking about BGOL and implying if you do it it will kill you so must be avoided at all costs?

Re: Telematics - feedback and findings

“What young people need is more help in understanding where it is inappropriate to driven near the limit.” That bit I agree with but a black box is not going to help that.
