Some days I feel part of the bike, some days I don't . . . I've been riding now since February this year, it's great, I love it. Did my direct access and got myself a nice Triumph Tiger 800 ABS. It had 3500 miles on it, 63 plate and now, nine months later almost to the day, it's on 13,300 and I'm having an overdue full service done tomorrow. 3000 of those miles were done in late September over in Switzerland, so I've done some hours.

I got to the test centre with 2 minutes to spare and filled out all the relevant forms, saying I will not cheat etc. etc. and then I went into the...

Here's a well written and highly informative feature about the mechanics and application of motorcycle brakes by author Trish Fink.  Check it out, it may just save your ass one day. Take it away Trish...Several things affect your bikes braking ability, as well as your ability to avoid skidding or being tossed off your bike like a slingshot pellet. Weight distribution, road surface conditions, braking system type, tire condition, suspension, and most of all, rider skill. First, let's consider what enables you to change anything about the sp...
