Poll: What is most likely to make you speed less often?

But the effectiveness of the awareness courses over a finanicla penalty has yet to be measured. Maybe you've been on a course already, or have raked up points and or a fine in...

Falling off

Falling off my bike and f*cking my body has resulted in a drop in my speed.

i think your comments on track riding doesn't make you a better and more confident rider shows you up to be a bit of a know all and dare i say it..... arse ..............just so you know who your talking to, i ride for a living, ive done the IAM training and passed with flying colours...........average 20 k per year on the work horse and have as much time on the gixer that i can..................my point was track days dont get you done for speeding and keep your licence in tact with the added advantage you really can learn what your bike can do..............or are you convinced that you can learn it all on the road.............which all serious training organisations agree you cant:wink:

I think learning to ride your bike on a track is a great idea as it removes all the open road worries that you would normally have i.e. diesel, cow shit, unpredictable pushbike riders, lorries etc etc. The really clever bit is knowing where to apply that confidence and new-found ability on public roads afterwards. You don't want to be off down the road feeling great and grinding your footrest on the first bend you see only to find you are hurtling towards farmer palmers pile of manure he has generously deposited right across the road.

To measure 6’4” in height, I would have to have both my Alpinestars Scout WP boots and Bell Revolver Evo lid on.

Been ripping the.........

...............roads up for over 40 years. Never been caught speeding yet because I do it where I'm very unlikely to get caught.  I still like going fast where only I'm at risk. Go down a road at normal speed, no coppers about, turn round and go back at 150. BRILLIANT. 

Any coppers here?

FUCK YOU!!!!!!!!!
