    Chatter
    Great news form the surgeon yesterday. Tests are back and no traces of the Lurgy in my innards. Great! So planning to have a week with the Boss in Canada to see my niece. Weather is still good in patches so I'm racking up a few miles again to make up for lost time. Promise I'll take more...
  3. Have I found "The One" ?!?!?

    Chatter
    CCM GP450, light, plush-but-capable suspension, optional hard luggage, BMW-designed engine (built in Taiwan), only 40 bhp but can be derestricted to 52 bhp. Seems a tad expensive, but if it works... Due out later this year: Video: CCM GP450 Adventure - | Motorcycle News | New Motorbikes |...
  4. Should bike tests be in foreign languages?

    Chatter
    There is a consultation out on the subject. There is pretty much zero risk of fraud for bikes but is a driver who can't speak or read English a risk on the roads? DSA asks if tests should be in languages other than English | the-zebra.com
  5. Stupid or Unlucky

    Chatter
    Despite it only being day two of the Olympics we now have three failed drugs tests. I know there are probably a great number of clean athletes out there but are these people that get caught really stupid enough to think they will get away with it or are they part of a bigger group and just unlucky?

  9. How good is your helmet ?

    Helmets
    There's a new government website showing results of tests on helmets - not just pass/fail, but benchmarks, with a start rating. It's rather interesting... SHARP Helmets - THE HELMET SAFETY SCHEME Here's an article about it Rating Helmets Beyond Pass/Fail « MotorcycleDaily.com – Motorcycle...
