Re: is it just me?

My last road ride was 2 years ago I think.. I found exactly the same as this back then. I never got into a flow and enjoyed myself to the point where I was only focusing on riding; I always had other stuff on my mind too, just like when I'm driving a car

Why is it?

... moment. Its so succinct to how we as humans are failing. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapiens-Humankind-Yuval-Noah-Harari/dp/1846558239 In the 70,000 years or so that we have effectively ruled the Earth we have systematically destroyed it.

Re: Pirelli Rosso Corsa 2

... take them off your hands and try them out for another perspective. I'm fairly certain they're going to be great. Pirelli aren't going to spend 15 years in SBK and then get their first multiple compound tyre wrong. Interestingly though, I can't find a single review or test on the internet in English.

Re: My latest blog out now - Depth perception

Good article, it's not something you see or hear discussed.

Fortunately I get a full eye test done every 2 years.

Re: What you watching?

You know what....I think I'm getting mixed up a bit....there's a US show called 'Save Me' from a few years ago that's just "went to network" or is on re-run at the minute.

And "Save Me" is the theme song from yet another show......

Re: So here's my plan...

You know...there was a couple of guys did this a few years ago....they went all around South America on a pair of knackered 100cc bikes or something like that, so it's definitely do-able. Didn't take them 4 years to make their minds up about it either..... ...

Re: Why do we ride?

earlier on i didn't think about it much, it was just fun - now years on riding is very much a two edged sword

on one hand the fun is still there but, on the other hand, i get irritated with cars not waiting and pulling out and this takes away from the pleasure.

Re: New gear

... of manufacturers getting better at designing life time into kit. Kettles are a good example, if anyone has a modern kettle that’s more than three years old I’d be amazed. They are designed to fail, so you buy a new one. My Grandad died aged 94 with the same fridge he bought in his 30s!

True, my Triumph suit has done at least 50,000 miles, around 20 track days and still looks new.

Better?

Re: New gear

It's no good people telling you they've had kit for 20 years of they're only doing 500 miles in it during the summer. Miles means more IMO. Any kit will last if you don't use it. Alpinestar lasts but the zips fail Rukka leaks Dianese works but generally ...

Thats what I mean though, I think older Astars gear is the nuts but from what I understand the newer stuff isnt made to anywhere near the same quality as the old stuff
