Snev, are you a prepper ?

Yes........ but mostly on sundays when my Delightful bundle of Cuddliness cant be bovvered peeling the Veg............................ another answer is............ I like to set myself certain challenges ..... such as eating stuff I find, Living in a place without being found, Sleeping in the open and soaking up nature in all it's glory........... this life is amazing, we are surrounded by beautiful scenery and wildlife yet we spend all our time working and living in concrete boxes............... I'm blessed with living in such stunning countryside, riding bikes and having the freedom to go wherever I like......................... We're only here once after all...........

I asked because one of my sons is a 'prepper' he's doing weekends in the wild bivvying and testing 'kit'

I'd love to have the time.........

MotoGP 2017

The only Moto GP I've ever been to was the French round in 2008. Thoroughly enjoyed it but only got about 3 hours sleep due to idiots revving bikes all the time. (I camped at the circuit) I would recommend anyone to do it, then decide if you'd do it again!! LOL!

Switchable ABS

I've been wondering about the legality of switchable ABS systems/disabling ABS. I don't know if any of you would have experience with this.

If you have switchable ABS, as on some off road/adventure bikes, and deactivate the system while on a muddy green lane. If you were to then drive onto the road and have an accident, would you be at risk due to disabling a safety system? Would this apply similarly to traction control systems? Would it depend on the actual events of the crash (e.g. if the other driver was clearly at fault and the safety systems wouldn't have made a difference anyway). Also, would an insurance policy be voided by deactivating any systems/lowering settings on the bike?

As another example, if you were to have a single vehicle incident where you slide out on a bend with a traction control equipped bike. Would the insurance company refuse to pay out, stating that you must have lowered the settings too much and therefore accepted the risk of damaging you vehicle?

I'd like to think that a bike sold with switchable systems in the UK would be approved for use in any setting that they provide, but common sense isn't always prevalent.
