bike running poor

@oscarthegrouch - Well, I got my TW200 running properly by half a can of Sea Foam for two fill-ups. Think the trip to Illinois where I could not get ethanol free gasoline (petrol) was the culprit.

Lorenzo and Rossi now have respect

Jorge Lorenzo says he and Yamaha team-mate Valentino Rossi now respect each other in a way they did not during their fractious first stint sharing a MotoGP garage.

** He admitted that the pressure of an intra-team title fight could revive hostilities, but doubted they would ever return to their previous level.

"For sure if in the future some situation happens that can create some friction between us, that relationship could change," Lorenzo said.

"But I don't believe it will be as bad as it was in the past."
Yeah right ! :satisfied:

I hope you are well after going through a serious accident. As I have not witnessed your accident, so cannot tell you whether it was your fault or not. But as per my sight the witness must have said everything fairly, after analyzing every aspect.

That makes a whole bunch of nonsense.

What next - post CBT

Ah, it seems what I thought was counter-steering wasn't. I was swerving by shifting my weight, one way before the other, and turning round junction corners etc. just by steering directly.
Watched a YouTube video about counter-steering, went out yesterday and tried it. Hey, this is good! And clearly what I need to do that swerve manoeuvre. Why didn't my instructor teach me that?
Anyway, have decided I'm not going back to said instructor, it's turning out from another forum that other women have had problems with them (father and son) too.
So - I'm meeting a possible new instructor tomorrow. And will just have to get over myself about riding to work with L plates on for now, and get on with it.
