You can read it or work it out for yourself but it doesn't count unless you're nursed through it on the road by one of the Jedi's, I understand.

Jeeeeezzuusss!! don't they go on. I hear a voice like the

old Pathe News when I read this stuff. Planned riding? So busy planning you forget to enjoy it. And these outfits all place to much emphasis on worrying about what's behind you. If you're overtaking or moving off then fine, chuck a quick look over your shoulder, but it's what's in front you need to be paying most attention too.

I was taught by Jason Pridmore to downshift in advance to help slow the bike, to do it at a higher engine speed where it is smoother (less negative effect on rear wheel traction), and to keep the engine in the range where it is responsive. Also, with the ball’s of one’s feet on the pegs for body positioning, one cannot use the rear brake.

Do car drivers get this?

It seems this information is a waste of time as it appears that everyone previously contributed  knows absolutely everything about motorcycling and as far as they are concerned need to learn nothing more.,so one is preaching to the converted.

Why not forget the loss of page from the IAM and just concentrate on your obvious core business of  informing idiots and morons how to ride at speeds in excess of 120 mph on a sunday morning. teach them how to control the bike at that speed and u have an audience.

That audience wont be buying your paper for to long.  Its only the bad weather thats keeping them alive.!!!!
