Re: Speeding charges dropped against 4 bikers

Agreed but getting out of bed presents a risk. Getting on a bike presents a risk. Life is risk. Risk awareness and acceptance is a very personal thing based on your personal knowledge and experience on a subject. Anyway I guess the agreed opinion is don't do, its not acceptable but at some point we'...

Re: Speeding charges dropped against 4 bikers

So how many people being honest have legally done 140mph on the IOM?

I will own up and say yes, in what I deemed to be a safe and legal environment

Re: Speeding charges dropped against 4 bikers

I never overtake on solid whites or into blind bends that's asking for trouble.

Re: Speeding charges dropped against 4 bikers

It's legal on the IOM.

Would be interesting to see their RTA rates compared to the mainland.

Re: Oil change procedure on Panigale V4

I don't think it is to be honest Rossgo. The only addition really is the weighing of oil. I've never gone to the length of weighing oil but I have always measured how much I got out and put slightly less in, then topped up in a controlled manner. Just methodical and good practice imo. I always keep ...

Re: Speeding charges dropped against 4 bikers

Would it be fair to say most of the people in this thread who say it's wrong on all accounts, have at some point legally and acceptably travelled at 140mph on a UK public highway in appropriate conditions.

Re: Speeding charges dropped against 4 bikers

It's legal on the IOM in national speed limits but driving without due care attention or any form of dangerous driving isnt.

Travelling at a Number in itself isn't dangerous or reckless but driving without due care and attention etc....is

Re: Possible house move

Stressful I know but to be fair the people sound quite reasonable.

They say happy to move to suit your needs.

I read that as if you need to move earlier they will break the chain to allow you to complete.

Hope it works out.

Re: Speeding charges dropped against 4 bikers

But thats because most of the population live in densely populated areas and drive at the same time.

Playing devils advocate D thats all (y) its hypothetical after all. I accept the question is loaded but wanted to hear opinions. 500mph ?? A plane. Given space and time with a skilled pilot and well maintained machine the danger is minimal. Totally agree with Duke about other road users expectations...

Re: Speeding charges dropped against 4 bikers

Speeds a number, nothing more imo, simple as that and can't be looked at in isolation to establish risk and danger accurately. It's a combination of speed and inappropriate circumstances that can and does become dangerous. We've all done well over 500 mph in appropriate conditions on a well maintain...
