Re: Touch Screens

It doesn't have a flick wipe as such. You either have to turn them on and off quickly, or use the washer function. Here's the instructions . Having read the instructions, I'm not clear whether moving the lever down towards the intermittent setting then releasing would trigger a single wipe - I thin...

Re: Touch Screens

Are you sure that is the only way to activate the single pass (flick wipe) action? It seems odd if that is the case. Then again it is absolutely mad that the washer activates the wiper first and adds water afterwards. An excellent recipe for scratched glass and prematurely worn blades. It doesn't h...

Re: Touch Screens

Just to clarify for everyone: This has nothing to do with auto wipers. The design is that the flick wipe is also the screen wash by holding it pulled towards you. You can't squirt the screen without activating a swish of the wipers. Some seem surprised by this but our Yaris is just the same as was m...

Re: Touch Screens

The rain sensitive wipers in my Renaultsport Clio work very well. However I never leave them in auto to turn themselves on/off. I switch them to auto as an intermittent. The main gripe is the combined washer flick. Dirty gritty screen and you have to flick the arm to squirt the screen. The wipers th...

Re: Highway Code Review for cyclists, pedestrians and horse riders

The changes/clarifications that I think will cause the most issue are giving way, if turning left/right in a motor vehicle, to pedestrians or cyclists. Up to now you made sensible observations and speed adjustments but now, the changes will encourage significant undertaking by cyclists in queuing tr...

Re: Road works speed limits

So... if you, as a more vulnerable road user, go onto a road where traffic is flowing at a particular speed and choose to drive/ride at a speed considerably below that then where does the "madness" lie? That you have chosen not to do it is probably safer for everyone. So you expect me to ...

Re: Road works speed limits

On the A14 at Ipswich there is a long stretch of roadworks with a 40 limit. The work is only carried out at night and then the cones moved so both lanes are open during the day. The signs are left in place! Riding my motorcycle at 40 is a terrifying experience and I now avoid the area. No-one is obs...

Yep, we can steer, brake (including front/rear balance), change gear and rev match all at once :) (and a lot of Associates do any combination of those :) )

Re: A few more videos

As ExportmanUK says it's a true sequential box but you can do a pseudo block change as you are come to a stop, or arriving at a RAB on high speed dual c/w. Hold the clutch in and press (usually!) the lever multiple times. Lots of riders will tell you their bike "won't" or they can't, but o...
