Re: Yet another....

Welcome. I also owned a number of Alfas in the past. Will probably meet up at the drive in April and good to see you found the Banbury coach.

Re: Phone use (again )

I find using a touch screen more distracting than hands free phone as it means taking my eyes off the road too long to focus on tapping a screen accurately. Often though, if on hands free phone, I break into a driving commentary, if I identify a need to raise concentration on the driving, which stop...

Re: Newbie

Welcome Lizzy, Look forward to meeting you at Newbury. Good to hear that you enjoyed the Young Driver Days and found it inspiring. You will find a number of people attending Newbury who have completed the High Performance Course and you may recognise some of them.

Re: Tyres fitted to front or rear

:racing: I suggested fitting my replacement front tyres to the rear this week on the strength of this thread, and was advised to "have the best tyres on the front". Could it be an old woman thing? Yes you might be right there. A lot of tyre fitters just assume (wrongly) if it's front whee...

Re: Terminally Embarrased

It happens. Good for you in having the courage to post about it here. It reminds me that a few days after my sister's sudden death in her 40's I had a couple of blank moments whilst driving. One was bumping into a lamp post in an empty car park and the other suddenly realising I was driving on a sec...

Re: Been a naughty boy?

Always a dilemma. What to do? No one answer fits all and it will depend on the circumstances of the moment.

Re: Speed limiters mandatory from 2022?

I know what you mean, however on a powered two wheeler the temptation to close the throttle has the effect of altering the balance onto the front wheel, so loading that tyre more than it would be if the bike is under power. Agreed..slight pause to settle balance prior to crossing paint helps, but n...
