That's what I was saying. BMW used HIS design/IP.

Re: One of the dozen

I'm assuming you've omitted the [sarcasm mode=on]? ;)

Or have I completely mis-read what you've typed?

Re: One of the dozen

Peletons riding as if they are one vehicle is what I take issue with. They often come out of side roads when it is perfectly safe for the first 2 or 3 riders ... but then the rest continues out as if they are one living mass.

Re: Staying safe on a bike

Is this the guy who tried to claim IP for BMW's forks with separate suspension?

This topic is going to drift into discussing Malcom Newell and Royce Creasey soon ;)

Re: Staying safe on a bike

You might add in slightly dodgy equipment - those bikes are freighted to the gunwales which makes them a little less stable and prone to high speed weave amongst other things. Yep, the reputation of the Honda ST1300 was destroyed. People still refer to the Pan weave, yet with sail (screen) down and...

Re: 'Filtering' Accident

The last couple of days I've been involved in several online discussions about filtering and the related dangers. Tonight I'm queuing in the car in roadworks on a dual carriageway. As I approach the RAB at the end of the exit slip road a motorcycle overtakes me (filters?!) by being the other side of...

Re: Staying safe on a bike

Simple. Attitude! Get this one right, then advanced training taking advantage of position and your extra height. Learn how to really look as part of the Information phase. Always sacrifice everything for safety. Do all that, apply the system rigorously, relax and enjoy one of the best stress busting...

Re: 'Filtering' Accident

There is something substantially wrong with the riders attitude, and or, sense of entitlement. Jump to 5:40 onwards in this video and see how a horse and rider are treated. Listen to the following comments and then read the supportive comments on YouTube. Sadly this is the type of attitude that any...

Re: 'Filtering' Accident

It's me again, being judgemental! ;) Here's the rider's follow-up video, displaying the high quality attentive riding she does. Why do some people have to talk with their hands? :o At about 9:00 minutes she arrives at the scene of the crime, and does indeed make a left turn. She's still blathering o...

Re: 'Filtering' Accident

Horse Price list not available. Open to negotiation. ;) The 'price' (figure of speech) in this case was a painful foot and scratched bike, which could have been avoided. As we've said earlier, hindsight is a wonderful thing and can help us learn. I'm sure we've all learnt things from these dissectio...
