Re:Scotoilers....what's the deal?

I've been doing a daily 40 mile commute, with a Scottoiler fitted, for the past year or so. In my experience it's difficult to get the balance right, either too much or not enough.

Noob!

Hi guys, just signed up and looking forward to the first issue. Great site too. I'm a relatively new biker (about 16000 miles) and I'd really like a 1200GS Adventure. I have started my "research" and have a couple of questions: 1)I've seen lots of bikes dropped on river crossings (YouTube) and wonde...
