Just been on the Street Triple forum and found a post that got me thinking.
The original poster wanted to know how often ST riders used first gear. I use mine from a standstill every time, or if I want to filter at walking speed and often when I'm coming to a stop.
Apparently not everyone does. There were a couple of guys who always pull away in second and claim they hardly ever use first. I still don't understand why anyone would do this. One chap says it's because he spent 20 years driving a diesel car.
Is it just me that thinks it's a bit odd? The first gear thing, obviously, not driving a diesel
Technical and tyres
You ain't obviously seen my ol' witch cos then you'd realise it's not good to look at her from a distance never mind up close on the rare occasion we're bumping uglies.
So definitely not wanting to watch any re-run of that very short film.
Remember guys , it's a race and there's no points for coming second.
This is it - there are less than 24 hours before the World Superbike weekend at Phillip Island and the start of MCN's 2015 Fantasy Road Race! Be there at the beginning by competing in the "Two Wheels Good" league (PIN #19394), and in addition to bragging rights, maybe you'll win a little somethin' else. Enjoy the season, and see you at the chequered flag!
Legal and insurance
I've been with them for years and have no problems. Their European breakdown cover is excellent also which is included in the premium, which is why they probably don't appear to be the cheapest quote sometimes but I've had reason to use it twice and the call-out was quick. Can't remember how long I've been with them but it must be 10 years at least.
