Re: Austin Vince

Saw Austin last night at the Ipswich IAM evening - what a guy! He talked for 3 hours and would have gone on for longer if it hadn't been so late in the evening. If you do go to one of his talks, you won't regret it. As has been said before, he can talk for hours on any subject and with so much passi...

Re: Adventure/Dual Purpose Tyres

How about get a survey on the basics: mileage, wet dry grip, feel etc from readers, forum members and then performing a magazine type test with a bias to evaluating if the survey seems realistic? That is exactly what I was looking for - just a basic comparison test so that the numpties like me who ...

Re: Adventure/Dual Purpose Tyres

As Scouse says it's tricky, a magazine would have to test a particular tyre on different marques and models to gain a fair assessment on how it performs; as different bikes have many varying handling traits and performance differences.

Re: ROSSI IS A SPENT FORCE!

Not 'alf. Was at Silverstone last year at the Moto GP and it was crap without Vale.. Trouble is Silverstone is crap full stop. Too flat to see anything other than the corner you're sat at and then the insult of a minimum of £20 to sit in a grand stand after paying £60 to get in! I went there to wat...
