Hello, My first post .. shame its a bad one.
Ive been out riding in the evenings quite alot recently as where i live, everybody is miles away. but ive been having a problem with my bike.
I live in Cornwall. There is no snow and its pretty damn cold at the moment. Roads freezing ETC. Now, ive only had my bike for 3 weeks (Did my CBT 3 weeks ago too). To get anywhere i use country lanes. But im finding, as im going round corners my tail wants to slide out and my front wheel is also slightly skittish.
I only use roads that i know gritters would have been down. But is this problem due to Ice, My tyres, the salt on the roads or inexperience? if so, HELP! As i know im going to come off. Im also not racing everywhere, but just taking my time.
Im riding a Honda Varadero 125 with Avon tyres. (cant remember the Model, but when i bought the bike they had just been fitted).
During the day, its not a problem. i can happily take my bike out knowing that im going to stick to the road and the tyres will grip.
Before i have a nasty accident, can somebody please help?
