Is no taste the same as bad taste? In that case include KTM owners for testing... ;-)

How about owners that have both KTM & Suzuki - does that cancel it out somehow?

For once a post supporting Suzuki riders rather then dissing them.
Have to say this also made me chuckle.

Having got off of a Gixxer and currently borrowing a 990 Superduke feels like a bag of bolts in comparison to riding silk.
Its clear my taste still seems to be intact.

To be fair I do think the KTM 990 is a particular angry engine, certainly not the smoothest, and the suspension on the Superduke is hard.
My 1190's engine, whilst still being a V-twin is so much more refined & smooth, and the bike in general is very refined & comfortable.

Message from Chief Constable Nick Adderley - NPCC Lead for Motorcycling

10:18 22/05/2020
As the National Police Chief's Council lead for Motorcycling and BikeSafe, I thought this would be a timely reminder to explain certain restriction that exist between England and the rest of the UK.

I would want to make the point that as a keen motorcyclist myself, the temptation to start mass ride outs and social events on the motorcycling scene is huge, however the threat still posed by COVID-19 must be respected and understood to ensure that we all comply with the guidance and regulations issued by the devolved administrations.

The lives of our families, friends and all who enjoy the UK as a place to live, work or visit are still in the balance.

For clarity -

Group rides are still not allowed but if you’re in England you can ride with one friend under the following conditions:

UK government advice applicable to England only permits exercise alone, between members of the same household or with one person from another household if you stay at least two metres apart at all times.

All of us in the biker community need to respect that position and it’s now time to step-up and show how we are part of the solution and not the problem when it comes to containing the virus as well as protecting the NHS.

To that end, especially with the Bank Holiday weekend approaching I urge every one of us to remember and abide by the following advice:

Maintain social distancing at all times
Check your bike over carefully when it’s been unused for a while
If you didn't renew your bike insurance policy during lock down, do it now
Try to avoid rush hour if possible
The government has clarified that you can ride to outdoor open spaces irrespective of distance so long as you respect social distancing guidance while you are there but it’s important that we don’t see large groups of motorcyclists congregating at single spots
You are an ambassador for motorcycling – ride with care, consideration and safety in mind
Be respectful of all other road users
Do not ride across UK borders unless necessary
Roads Policing teams across the UK will be out in significant numbers over the coming days and weeks and while there is a strong emphasis on engaging with motorists, if circumstances show a clear disregard for the restrictions, enforcement will be an option.

As a police motorcyclist and an avid leisure rider, I know bikers across the UK are, in the main, law-abiding, socially responsible and terrific supporters of our emergency services. I now call on that vast majority to exercise patience and understanding which will allow the wider public to see the biking community as one that can be held in high regard and trusted to do the right thing.
