Recently I have been making the most of the good weather, the roads are dry and ive been throwing the bike around a bit and i have to say it seems to handle very well infact it handles like a dream, there are some wicked turns down here, swinging the bike from one side to the other is so easy and doing this while holding 40mph, its a dream, i was scared at first, i mean just look at the tyres how do they grip the road its imense. Im sure all the other bike are the same, but im a first time rider and loving the way bike handles, its so much more fun.

BRING ON SUMMER!!

Yeah same with me mate, i bouht mine at the end of summer so i was cautious on the corners at first but in the winter had to hang off a little to keep the bike upright. Like you say, these past few glorious days have been awesome for riding and i was enjoying the corners too for the first time. Shame it rained today

I was out for those couple of days, ended up having to get my boots repaired, ripped the toes to shreds on the road. Roundabouts are just too tempting to take flat out at 4 in the morning. Checked the tyres and I need to take it a bit easier I think, only about 2mm of untouched tread on the sides!

i very much dout that you'd mange to run off the tyers on road 2mm is lots of room. if you look at a fast riders tyers there is no un tutched serface on the tyers

just so you know if your toes are scapeing then you need to move your toes more onto the peg, this also helps with your rideing postion so you lean off the bike more easly

I had my feet tucked in as far as possible mate! + that 2mm I dont want to go into, safety cushion I think.
