Re: Regenerative braking

Teslas show the brake lights when the software thinks it necessary (and show them on the avatar on the dash too). The regenerative braking is very strong - would bring the car to a halt on a moderate downhill slope almost as quickly as smooth use of hydraulic brakes. Pretty much one-pedal driving.

I've never checked, but how come the M25 is not a ring road? Is there a break in it somewhere?

Re: Clothoid?

If you mean the straight line skid marks well back from the corner, I suspect those are caused by unladen truck wheels locking up. There is what may be a set of skid marks in an S shape actually at the junction. If they are skid marks they seem to have been either caused by someone overtaking going ...

Re: New bike :)

Wikipedia says "The last popular chain drive automobile was the Honda S600 of the 1960s". Personally, I'm amazed they chose to do that at that time. My impression is that chain drive for cars died out, in the main, by the 1930s.
