Winter riding: keep your distance
If you’re riding through your first winter, one thing that often gets forgotten is the need to leave more space between you and the vehicle in front.
If your ABS-equipped car is the only experience you have of wet braking performance, then you don’t want to put your Kawasaki ER-5’s stoppers to the test while you’re up the chuff of an emergency-braking Transit on the M4.
Be aware that frost, rain water and leaves can be just as dangerous as ice.
