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

... big loop from Squires to Seaways, Scarbrough for dinner then up to Whitby for cake (A big slice of chocolate cake) and then over to Helmsley for another brew and a chat with some other bikers, one on a Busa had tall tails of cornering antics and 1" of virgin rubber on his squared off rear ...

Re: Nolan N87 Ongoing Review

I'm still trying to bed this in, however my own fault i guess, but when i got home from a ride the other day, i took the visor off and put it submerged in a bowl of water (i've always done this) as after about 30 mins the flies (of which there were many) just fall off and ...

Re: Motul M3 perfect leather

Just smells of clean leather. When applied it almost has a mint smell to it.

After a day it seems to have soaked in and leaves very little outside evidence it was there other than suppleness which is at it should be too my mind.

Re: COTA Motogp

COTA Motogp

Marquez is an immense talent but they need to make him realise that other riders have to be respected.

Hopefully pushed way down the grid.

KTM 1290 Superduke - Review

... You feel like you are riding on the front wheel and there is nothing in front of you., so you expect to be blasted of the back of the bike. The other thing was overtaking is terrifyingly easy.

Re: Test ride day

... get to go that mad but it was very good on the roads we found including a very twisty nsl section. The MT would have been better for that bit but other than a light tingle through the bars it was sooo comfy and the tft dash was amazing and clear, a few intuitive button pushes and it could display ...

Re: Braked a bit too hard

... them cool slowly, either way it made the alloy brittle and this happened when he braked at about 80... There were cracks in the spokes of the other three as well, so one set of OZ wheels written off and a very nasty accident avoided by luck more than anything. https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/216228_10151436617743499_744056170_n.jpg?_nc_cat=0&oh=87ac9b0c8b37fa78c9eb8b063a06f127&oe=5B513EE1

KTM 790 Duke - Review

... change the rider mode, so street mode got engaged. What a difference, the throttle response gets turned way down and all of a sudden its a much smoother ride, very much more managable and enjoyable. Then, national speed limit sign spotted... Sport mode engaged... Fricking nora, this thing is quick ...
