Re: Corner lines - thoughts?

Do you they are driving to what they know rather than what they see? There's an awful lot of motoring videos where reference is made to "knowing" the road as allowing someone to make good progress. Someone raised that point on YouTube regarding the offsiding but sadly the discussion fell ...

Re: Corner lines - thoughts?

Another example is the bit on steering, only making one steering input. Great-ish for the bend they show, but not on a longer bend where an initial steer is needed to lean the bike and track parallel to the edge until the exit is clearly visible where, if you want to go across to the apex then exit...

Re: Corner lines - thoughts?

However, so you can see the context: https://www.facebook.com/rapidtraining/videos/316737099714090/ It's difficult to judge the offsiding without on bike footage. I'd be more concerned about the lack of equalisation and the fact he's going offside where there are SLOW markings. However it is diffic...

Re: Corner lines - thoughts?

We can't see the road surface or very far forward from the image, but question would be:

Why offside?

If it's plod impersonating an Exocet missle there may be some benefit.

Re: Back-up & Restore - but what to where?

Ok, you don't need the image file.

Re: Back-up & Restore - but what to where?

Horse It's not clear what you are trying to do and how you've made your Backups. This info will help us advise: 1. Old machine operating system? 2. New machine operating system? 3. What software did you use to create the backups? 4. Have you stored all your data in a single folder structure or is it...

Re: What gear is best?

StressedDave?

I've not owned a conventional auto but found the DCT was much more influenced by the throttle than any conventional auto I've test driven in the past. Maybe it's just the DCT is more up to date and I'd find the same with a modern slush box.

Re: What gear is best?

Assuming instead of 'suggesting' a gear it just selects it instead I don't remember driving a car with an automatic gearbox where I've not overridden the gears; they just don't pick the gears I want at the time I want them. DCTs are very good now. Don't forget you actually have a lot of control ove...

Re: What gear is best?

Take the bulb out or if it's an LED/LCD one put a sticker over it. They all want you to rush up the box at a ridiculous pace. It's a bad habit that many are encouraged to do when learning to drive, and then they wonder why the car doesn't slow when off the accelerator. Many people have to be on one ...

Re: Driving in the dark

If the train is doing the speed limit, how do you catch it up? And if it's not, why would you want to go slower? And how do you feel about handing your safety over to another random driver? I don't know the full details but I suspect the lead vehicle will always be a 'professional' driver (in a lor...
