The vid is out of synch with the sound. I didn't accelerate to try and stop the other driver pulling into my lane, I only accelerated when he started pulling into the side of me. If I would have...

It's a simple fact that someone on a motorcycle or bicycle is much more difficult to see than all other traffic. That's why I ride with a hi-viz jacket on and an exhaust that can be heard by other...

I wouldn't worry about it. It's so easy to work out what actual speed you're doing, and I like the stock gearing the way it is. ;)

Unfortunately, I didn't get a look at the driver. It would have really freaked me out if it was one of them though. :grin2:

Why would anyone pay $1300 more for a bike that cost exactly the same new? They did over here, anyway. I'm not sure if they cost a little more in the USA, but it certainly wasn't $1300 more. Anyway,...

I'm not sure that I'd agree that limiting engine cc would make much difference to casualties, even the lightweights are lapping at 120 mph these days. I would like to see smaller classes racing again...

I'd love to go myself, but I can't afford it. Bruce Anstey is one of my favourite riders. Such a laid back guy with an amazing track record on the IOM.

I've switched it from MPH to KPH in the past, but it was a long time ago, and I can't remember how I did it. It won't make any difference to accuracy though, mines on MPH and it's roughly 10%...
