Re: recommendations please

Anyway, after sorting things out thought it was probably best to get on home, but found I never had any front brake pressure so came on steady on...

Re: Donny & Oulton 16/17 July

What a melt! So it drizzled a bit and you didn’t want to ride in it? What s waste of money! Think how much blue anodised tat that would have bought you for the gixxer! Could have bought you Rizla blue hoodie too.

Re: Caught Speeding

Probably better asking on pepipoo. Camera vans are normally a laser and can catch you up to a mile away. One photo showing speed then one showing confirmation of reg after you went by I would of thought was normal. Would be more interested in how they calculated average speed unless they just took t...

Re: Tyres for llandow

Based on Metzelers experience at the TT. Where they use the Racetec and Racetec RR. So basically nothing what so ever to do with the TT other than it’s a Metzeler .
A bit like saying that Michelin Pilot Power 2cts were used at Moto GP

Re: Tyres for llandow

Personally I have Metzeller M7s on my Gixxer 1000 I find them very grippy in the dry but also have a proven history in the wet as they were the tyre of choice for the TT for many years. Where did you get that nugget of info from? M7RR's haven't beeen around that long have they? They have probably u...

Re: scary speeding fines

How do you mean you got done both ways? As you went by it one way or it got you going in one direction and then again on the way back through in the opposite direction ? The main camera out the back or side can catch you coming towards it or going away from it on either carriageway. But that is a la...
