    Twice is downright daft. OK so I've been out for a run on the old Beemer and I return to a packed garage with four biles already there with my lads f650 blocking the door so I set about moving it forward a bit to free up the space at the door. Rolled it off the mainstand, forward a bit then...

  10. Lights and clutch use.

    Two issues for discussion here. In relation to lights, I have mine on all the time. I ride almost exclusively in town, usually during the day, and it just strikes me as sensible to maximise my visibility. I tend to think that a head-light during the day is more likely to catch the careless...
