Re: Masters - Journalist failed, then passed

Sometimes descriptions leave out important detail ... could it have been that there was a circumstance or two where using the rear brake could have potentially yielded some benefit but the candidate didn't think to use it? The article says ALWAYS finish with back brake BUT, having heard Associates ...

Re: A few more videos

I've added another. M32YEtX4l_A Roundabouts - Planning to stop, looking to go. The key to using roundabouts is your approach while assessing what is on the roundabout and what is about to join from your right and left. You may need to stop, but more often than not a small adjustment in speed will al...

Re: Masters - Journalist failed, then passed

This video used to have The Hokey Cokey as the backing track, but it sounds like the Youtube automated copyright robot has spoilt that fun.

Re: Masters - Journalist failed, then passed

There's no requirement for the Hendon shuffle. Even some police forces don't use it now. Isn't Masters examined against Roadcraft ? What does that book say? It doesn't mention it as it is something invented by Hendon. You need to be able to slow down and stop smoothly and with your machine fully un...

Re: Masters - Journalist failed, then passed

The first examiner was entirely wrong and stuck in the (police) past. There's no requirement for the Hendon shuffle. Even some police forces don't use it now. Sacrificing position for safety, again a 'no brainer' ... unless he was diving to the gutter each time (and that indeed is what the report su...

Re: A few more videos

Were those in the still frame going in reverse, then? ;) I commenting on making stopping a thing to always do. I know the video was 50/50 direction wise. It may depend on how rorty your bike is too. Super quiet. To the point I was concerned with the horse not facing me would be startled as I passed...

Re: A few more videos

Passing Horses - Dealing with horses it not difficult. Slow down and give them plenty of space. Or even stop to let them pass. That's a bit difficult if they are going the same way as you ;) Stopping is a double edged sword. I don't want to put myself in extra danger, though my mates would cop it f...

A few more videos

The sun has showed it face this week, so while I continued to ride all through winter, it hasn't been videoing weather. I did a bit of filming Tuesday while leading a 100 mile (200 mile round trip) social ride with a few mates. I've included the video descriptions from YouTube as embedding here does...

Re: The Crash Detectives

Thanks.

Wondered how I'd missed this in the schedules. Then I saw it is/was only on BBC Wales.

Have set the recorder to series record. It says 4 parts, so we will see.

Re: Bought a new Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

I wouldn't be asking for it to be enabled. I'd be asking for the vehicle to have the features you ordered. The wording of your email sounds like YOU got it wrong, rather than not receiving what you discussed and believed you'd ordered. Never show any weakness or lack of conviction in your correspond...
