Staff Blog:Tyres changed after 2500 miles in five days

The mobile tyre fitter has just left having swopped the worn out tyres on the Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Touring which had been reduced to near illegal wear depth following my trip to the Ducati factory last week; a 2500 mile round trip. You’ll be able to read a full account of my trip to Bologna in a forthcoming issue of...

The use of oriented and orientated are now considered so interchangeable as to have the same meaning. I appreciate there are many who don't like oriented as they think it's an Americanism but it is generally accepted as OK these days.

I draw the line at the spelling of colour, favourite and organise though!!!!

 

Kind regards

Orientation

Davetrousers, "Track-orientated tyres" is hardly classic English; to orient means to point something in a particular direction, thereby giving it an orientation. "Market-oriented" is management speak. Tyres are not pointed towards a track. Some are designed with track use in mind. Perhaps we can agree that "track tyres"  is better?

Americans

An American is anyone who lives in the Americas - North America and South America. So the first language of most Americans is Spanish, not English.

Those from the country whose contiguous area lies between Canada and Mexico are properly called USians. So the proper term to describe "oriented" is USianism and not Americanism.
