Re: Learners on motorways

This is what a lot of slip roads are like in Suffolk. Not a car wide and VERY short!

Re: Accessing ADHub on a mobile.

I use the forum in Chrome on my mobile. Works fine with the adaptive code used.

What issues are you having on your mobile.?

I agree with Alasdair about Tapatalk. Also adding any plugins to the forum increases support work and may add problems.

Re: Associate cannot keep to the speed limit

I see.

I have to click 10 times to increment 10mph (but I just do them quickly). In my old car you could hold the button and the cruise control would wind up/down.

Re: Learners on motorways

Yes, and?

Luckily we don't have any motorways near us, but even on dual carriageways when riding at an indicated 70 you are often the slowest thing around and need very good awareness of what is going on behind you.

Re: Associate cannot keep to the speed limit

I expect each car is different. Mine seems pretty smooth. You can also hit cancel for full 'in gear' deceleration and resume to pick up speed again. You can only use the cruise control in 'vanilla' mode, sport doesn't allow its use, so it doesn't do any manic acceleration when pressing the resume bu...

Re: Learners on motorways

I think it is a good idea but I'm sure the instructors will feel very vulnerable. Especially if sticking rigorously to the displayed speed on the dash.

Re: Associate cannot keep to the speed limit

I once took out an Associate who used the cruise control for all speed adjustments by clicking on the up and down buttons. He explained this as what the car dealer had told him to do rather than using the throttle! I'll admit I often do this depending on conditions and the road layout. Even better ...

Re: Dangerous safety system?

And then look at the marketing on this one. The car will keep you safe! PMRnVqQVDwo Other manufacturer adverts are doing the same. Volvo have one where the car even takes avoiding action. I hope it doesn't count me on my motorcycle as expendable, compared to hitting the car in front, if I'm coming t...
