Default Good video

Nice video Wynne . Lets me see how folks drive in the U.K. , seem like sensible lot, all in all. How many years riding do you have? My riding style is very similar to yours, not revving too high and all. I just don't believe in giving the bike more stick than needed, i'm always thinking about the petrol consumption.

Notice how much the windscreen flexes once you hit the motorway.

I've been riding for 30 years, with the odd break here and there. I use my bike mainly for commuting, with the odd weekend run every now and again. The traffic is getting worse and worse over here as our population is going up, but infrastructure remains the same. You can get through it on a bike though. I don't really ride thinking about economy, this bike's so cheap to run, I don't feel I have to. I just ride to the road conditions really. I think generally, driving standards are reasonably good over here, but you do see the odd idiot. There's not a week goes by where I don't see an accident on the Motorway, sometimes a few a week. If I used a car for work, It'd add hours a week onto my commute, especially when there's an accident.

It does seem to flex a bit, doesn't it. I'm not sure if it's all the windscreen flexing, or the camera moving a bit on the mount as well, with the wide angle lens distorting the image a bit.
