Re: IAM

Block changing - going all the way through the gears in one go. Say you're in 4th and coming up to an junction, rather than doing a gear at a time and using engine braking, you remain in 4th and then go all the way down to 1st once you've stopped. It is a car thing more than a bike thing but it's st...

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

A cold ride in this morning. There were patches of ice and frost on the road so the front was a bit twitchy. Still, it kept me awake.

Re: American school shooting

A recent study of World Health Organization data published in the American Journal of Medicine that found that, among high-income nations, 91 percent of children younger than 15 who were killed by bullets lived in the United States.“ “On average, two dozen children are shot every day in the United S...

Re: IAM

It's not black and white. It's up to the examiner. I think if you're smooth and using the appropriate gear then it'll be fine. If he sees you using the same foot at every stop he may ask you to show to him/her that you can use the other one.

The planet is over populated. I didn't realise US police were so green and environmentally friendly.

Re: IAM

I'm with you on that one. I can have my left foot down, pull away and change gear pretty quickly. I have never found myself thinking, "oh crap, I put the wrong foot down" The other one I might struggle with is not using the gears to decelerate. I do that all the time. The manual seems to s...

Re: American school shooting

It's not the same. When was the last time you heard of a pissed off teenager taking a claw hammer into a school and murdering and injuring dozens of school children? What is clear, as mentioned above, is there is a cultural issue here. If you look at gun crimes state by state you can see massive var...

Re: 2017 Versys 650 Grand Tourer - ongoing review

I've booked the bike in with All Year Biker for a scrub and ACF50 bath. There's still salt on the roads and I feel like I'm fighting a losing battle trying to keep on top of looking after the bike during the winter months. I'm cleaning the bike when I can but having a professional fully degrease the...

Re: American school shooting

When America banned the sale of automatic rifles the number of massacres dropped by 37%.

It's almost as if banning the sale of these things was starting to work.

Re: IAM

So having picked up the manual I've been trying out a couple of things they suggest. One is changing which foot you put down. I always put my left down so it feels weird having the right on the floor.

I've also been practising my U turns. I've not done one for years.
