Mickey's girlfriend here -
Thanks for all the thoughts on this!
Mickey isn’t taking the mickey, although I’m glad if you are
enjoying my bumpy front and wobbly rear, but actually I am currently
considering the various suggestions kindly given.
The tyres are definitely correct sizes, pressures and
balanced, and I do trust this mechanic, he takes his work seriously and always
test rides any bike he has worked on.
The other CBR I rode had Dunlop Qualifiers, perhaps I prefer
the feel of them.
I’m considering taking the bike to a suspension expert to
see if settings need adjustment as to be fair, my weight was an issue on the
R1, it needed a bit of adjustment to get it right for me, although that
was the only bike I had suspension issues on before, despite my petite (weedy)
Perhaps I have lost some confidence and am starting to over-analyse
PS mickey says hands off the rear, its mine!
