Re: Must be getting old

My problem with commuting on the bike is note the bike, I recon it would be awesome. I takes about 10 mins I get the kit on and the bike out on the road, is only a 20 min journey (probably less on the bike)

Makes more sense time wise to just use the car.

Re: IAM

... said I look very comfortable on the bike, I'm confident with my overtakes, my observations were excellent as was my positioning. I read the road really well, spot when to slow and accelerate (he took me to some very nasty bends) and look nice and relaxed. But, I failed to stop at a STOP ...

... well as having done a fair few years in the police. His general advice about being a quicker rider includes: riding different bikes stick to the B roads Ride roads you don't know do a wheelie school ride off road ride in the rain He reckons people get too complacent with their own bikes, riding ...

Re: Snitches get stitches

I don't think that is an offence unless he was speeding or contravening the Road Traffic Act in some other way . No, no offence. Maybe questionable morals, but no breach of any legislation unless excess speed or using the hard shoulder was involved. If it was ...

Re: Snitches get stitches

... no further action was taken or extra staff being taken on just to look at video footage. Extra proper;y trained professional traffic cops on the road is in my opinion the only real solution.

Journey to Biking

... embarrassing after reading all over the internet how it was "impossible to fail a CBT". Anyway, on day two, we finally got out onto the road. The instructor thought it was funny to call you a "w*nker" every time you did something wrong. This may be funny when you're 17, but ...

Re: Snitches get stitches

saw you tweet about this, seems insane to me, the police letting civvies do their job, lazy and just going to cause so many issues as you say with people who may disagree with what they see but not fully understand the rules of the road themselves

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

... bunch of riders, the lead guy was on a 1198. They were well below what I like to travel at ( and we were heading down a quiet national park windy road, so didn’t want any roadblocks). The 1198 guy left his mates and tried to keep up. Every set of corners he dropped back and then nailed it on the ...

KTM 1090 Adventure - a brief review

... and inciteful humour you've come to the wrong place. Ok then, so on with the review (but not a review) of KTMs 1090 Adventure. This is the road version with standard rims (not spokes) and the pretty decent Tourance tyres from Metzler. It's a 125bhp 1050cc adventure bike, costing a few pennies ...

Re: Speeding charges dropped against 4 bikers
