Just done a little more work one of my Kawasaki's - the Vulcan S. Ive fitted a backrest and rack - here's a Blog post if it's your thing
Thanks for the advice, much appreciated.
Bought the Shoei GT Air from Proto (Newcastle), walked around the shop for a good while with the helmet on as suggested, snug fit but became more comfortable the longer I had it on. Got the Dainese Veloster jacket from M&S motorcycles (Newcastle), excellent service and advice from the staff. Happy with the price I paid and would definitely shop there again.
My point here is, there are alot of black riders out there that aren't given a chance to Motogp, WBSK, BSK and TT.
Just remember that most of the Moto3 and some of the Moto2 field are paying for their rides, and about half the MotoGP field does not get paid by their teams. Being a great rider is not good enough - you have to bring family/sponsorship money with you unless someone thinks that you will be a future alien.
@Colonial-Piglet will you please be more careful , motorsport is dangerous ( as if you didn't know ) we often have signs around our racetracks telling us motorsport is dangerous and not take copy it on the public road when you leave , spoil sports .
BSB & TT
So the Classic TT/Manx is over yet not a thing in MCN today about last Wednesdays and Fridays races?
Plus nothing about the cheating from certain High profile teams in MCN, over sized engine and other technical infringements. Star riders disqualified for over sized fuel tanks but then the rider is reinstated by the Clark of the course so then the chief scrutineer resigns on the spot! But other star riders are excluded due to over sized engines and NOT reinstated? Now I'm not accusing any rider of cheating its the people who supplied and prepared the machines. But the regs state that the onus is on the rider to ensure the machine is legal!!
But what kind of message does this send out when machines are checked after the race and found illegal the Star rider is reinstated ( Remember the Dunlop incident at the TT with coated valve buckets.) It makes it a joke doesn't it, but even more when MCN doesn't report is obviously not news to them. Not impressed MCN. JB
Legal and insurance
best thing to do is run the ped with a gps with you to see the true speed.
Another option is to mount a push-bike cyclometer, and calibrate it by doing a roll-out test (put a dab of wet paint on the tyre, power walk the bike in a straight line for a few feet, and measure the distance between the paint dots). The cyclometer counts wheel revolutions, so with the correct wheel diameter entered, they are very accurate.
Touring & travel
Did a few miles in Derbyshire yesterday and found a decent place for a bite to eat. Some words and pictures here:
Buying and selling
Seeing Deliveroo riders everyday somewhere nr Leeds, it seems the best scooter is one that can do this all day, with the rider generally wearing trackies and trainers with no gloves.
