Re: Masters - Journalist failed, then passed

I simply don't know, could only guess. Of course, journalists never get things wrong ;)

Does Masters include a written debrief? And it does seem odd that he could 'survive' the coaching to fall foul in the test.

Re: Masters - Journalist failed, then passed

Add British bike into the mix (also I was taught on starting - do the above then switch back to footbrake before pulling away) :D Ahh, the years roll by... Ah, now, there's a thing! Walk up to bike, lift vertical off side stand. Without moving left foot off the ground: - Click up sidestand with rig...

Re: Masters - Journalist failed, then passed

the Hendon Shuffle - not sure I understand that, am trying it on my office chair, and still doesn't make much sense! Do the shuffle: Starting: Start bike, with left (gear) foot down, holding on rear brake (right foot) leaving right hand (throttle and front brake) free to adjust revs. Front brake on...

Re: A few more videos

When I've stopped, it would have been because I thought it was safer for me!

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

Perhaps they shouldn't, but then neither should drivers under red mist, or distracted, or impaired - presumably you treat every other road user as a potential problem rather than assume they're all ok?

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. Although, to be fair, if it's the lead rider (you) that spooks them it'll be those following that get hoofed :) This is one of the occasions when a headlamp on/off switch i...

PS what is the point of using IR if the human eye can't see it? Surely that IS the point. ;) The display gives a visual version, that you can see, of the real world IR, that you can't. Things like nice warm bodies dressed in black. FWIW, my old ProTek bike suit, which was foil lined, was so well in...
