Re: On Potholes and Positioning

And despite the appalling state of our roads, Cambs council can still find money for pointless speed limit reductions :bash: :bash: :bash:
For instance changing this short link section to a 40. How much money have they pissed away on that? :soap:

Initial NTSB report out: https://www.ntsb.gov/news/press-releases/Pages/NR20180524.aspx I find this section particularly worrying "According to Uber emergency braking maneuvers are not enabled while the vehicle is under computer control to reduce the potential for erratic vehicle behavior. The ...

Re: Clutch - heel & toe

You can't expect to use the well known name of a bona-fide technique out of context to describe something completely different and expect not to cause confusion... however much you protest that your OP was clear. If you mean to talk about foot placement or foot position on the clutch when changing ...

Re: EV sales down

Is the early (and relatively wealthy) adopters market now saturated? I imagine so. They are ridiculously expensive, and I imagine not everybody wants to shell out for the infrastructure to charge them at home, on top of the price of the car. The savings in BIK tax for company car drivers may be an ...

Re: A few more videos

This is one of the occasions when a headlamp on/off switch is a benefit, so you can switch it off. My understanding is they don't like flashing/glaring lights - just what you might get from a bike bouncy on its suspension under braking. If they're that likely to get spooked, perhaps they shouldn't ...

Re: Insurance again.

I cancelled my insurance with Adrian Flux today but, firstly the amount of the policy cost refundable had altered considerably since I phoned on Monday. When I enquired of the reason, I was told that the amount I was told on Monday was only if I took up another policy with them. I did not do this a...
