Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

In my view most motorcyclists are better 'drivers' than car drivers are and I'm not a motorcyclist. I think it's difficult to generalise; some are good drivers, some are bored and detached while driving, and some make unwarranted assumptions that might work when riding. There's probably a large pro...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

I guess the rider was aware of the oncoming vehicle sooner than he would have been if he weren't off siding due to the improved view. And the oncoming driver would have been aware sooner of a bike heading towards him at speed . . . Yes, exactly that, it benefits both. The biker was certainly travel...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

I guess the rider was aware of the oncoming vehicle sooner than he would have been if he weren't off siding due to the improved view. Personally if used correctly I feel its a 'no brainer', it improves view and straightens bends which improves stability so you have a better view and improved ability...

Re: Run flats to 'normal tyres'

I changed the run flats on my R53 JCW and like the person above it has the sports + suspension which is stupidly hard. Same size tyre but deliberately went for Uniroyal Rainsport 3 (not run flats) because I know they are quite pliant, so much so that I'd not use them on most other cars. That's helpe...

Re: Flat bottomed steering wheels - why??

I can imagine that id'd help people with very long or fat upper legs in cars that don't have seat height or steering wheel height adjustment.

Re: Dodgy precedent?

I think this is a good idea. I know that unless the evidence shows the complete offence then it won't be taken to prosecution. This isn't something that would be used for very minor offences but they want to catch some of the more serious one's and that suits me fine. No one is prepared to pay for t...

Re: Lane closure due to roadworks

Back to merge in turn briefly and to give some context to the discussion and comments made earlier in this thread, I have a couple of points that may be of interest: * On a high speed road if the traffic flow is high enough then it is lane 2 that will be closed with a chicane leading back to lane 2 ...
