Re: Hello all

your pace/speed/progress will naturally rise It shouldn't, any increase in speed should be a conscious decision. Well as you snipped that bit off the front of my quote ;) What I clearly said was "if you get all the aspects of driving to the system working correctly". So conscious decision...

Re: Hello all

Hi StuBeeDoo. Welcome to the forum and the world of advanced driving. I really hate the word progress and try to avoid its use when out with my Associates. What I would say is that if you get all the aspects of driving to the system working correctly your pace/speed/progress will naturally rise. The...

Re: New bike :)

It may feel top heavy if you are used to a boxer engine where all such engined bikes carry their weight low down , but compared to every other adventure bike there's hardly any difference, despite what the GS loving mags will tell you. It's true that the weight is carried higher than my old GTR, as ...

Re: Who goes first?

I suppose the question which would be more challenging is what if the two cars met each other, and both wanted to turn right? As in that case, both cars would be crossing the path of the other, and both cars would be distrupting the flow of traffic!. The advice here is for the two right turning veh...

Damn, they've changed things yet again. You used to be able to view 'Public' photo albums without a login. :(

Edit: I've changed the link in the original post to use the newly required format. :)

Re: New bike :)

So why did you go for this bike? Shaft drive. Performance - With all the benefits of a multi with all the engine braking of a single/twin. Ride quality - The active suspension is just superb as well as being from a top manufacturer, White Power. Weather protection (almost as good as my GTR - legs a...

New bike :)

After 5 years and 50K miles (bike had nearly 60k on it) I have given in and joined the high up riders :) The number of shaft drive bikes (if you don't want a BMW) has been seriously curtailed over the last few years. So here I am with my new Triumph Explorer 1200 XRT. The coal scuttles have been sol...

Re: 20 mph limits - safer?

And Ipswich has just implemented a new area of 20 limits. Not a zone this time but a liberal sprinkling of entry signs and repeaters. Lots of opposition but nobody listens to the arguments. Enforce the existing 30 rather than penalise those who observe what is posted. The result? More slow moving co...
