Getting it wrong on bends
10 August 2007 13:36
Footage of a rider out on the roads in Cheshire. Passed test, Direct Access in Demember 2006, now on a Honda 900 Hornet. On two occasions he crosses white line in centre of road on left hand bend. What is he doing wrong? Have you done something like him?
My opinion: Approach speed OK, but Honda is in too high a gear, so if he shuts off the bike does not respond. A lower gear and more revs would give him more control, and if he felt he was going a little too quick, the bike would slow. He was changing gear when he reached a certain speed - 30mph in third gear! There is commnetary, but rider does not have radio
