Riding skills: Filtering

It’s not queue jumpingFiltering is always a contentious topic as those not on a bike often look upon it as queue jumping. That of course is rubbish; it’s what bikes were built to do. What the law saysThe Highway Code says “when filtering in slow-moving traffic, take care and keep your speed low” which appears to me to be tacit ...

Horse riders, a noisy bike and poor road visibility...best practice?

I just passed my CBT on a geared bike a week ago, although I had a twist and go years back and have driven for the past 13 years.Out for a gentle 'getting to know the bike better' (Yamaha RS100, noisy but beautiful little 2 stroke) jaunt on country lanes on Sunday I came up behind a horse and rider.  Saw them in plenty of time, dropped down and kept my distance, BUT we were on a drawn out, narrow, low visibility bend, which meant all I could do was sit behind them, for a fair few minutes, during which ...

1988 GL1500

With my physical condition degenerating, I thought I'd try a 3-wheeler. I got this GL from a guy in Illinois, only 22,000 miles on it. A guy from the GWRRA that was local to him helped me with shipping, and I had it delivered to my place in Tacoma, WA. I bought a conversion kit from Lehman, had that shipped to me from Canada, and spent two weekends installing it. What a great piece of kit that Lehman was. Solid, built like a tank. I was worried about going to a 3-wheeler, the usual guy-ego thing, but it was great. ...
