Re: Block Changes - How Many Do You Miss?

You'd down change for a hill. I can't believe you've never seen my views on the order of the 4 (or 5) '...

Re: Block Changes - How Many Do You Miss?

Only just seen this topic. When its title appeared I thought it was going to be about missed opportunities. ;) Anyway, the coming off a dual c/w or motorway onto a long slip road often comes up.

Yes, the queue of sheep behind the target. On a motorbike dealt with one at a time (mainly) but I'll admit the gaps are not great and I will brake while entering.

Re: A few more videos

Horse, that's what I do also. Was suggested by an ex-police rider who was an examiner in the IAM. At the end of the day you have to advise people to consider doing one. It's a bit Clint Eastwood. "Are you feeling lucky punk?" Some people ride with little ongoing awareness of what is going ...
