  • Mirror, mirror...

    Hi All,   any ideas on filter-friendly mirrors for my TGB 101R 150? The standard issue are quite inflexible and have an unfortunate habit of wanting to occupy the same space as the mirrors of 4WDs. I want mirrors that have an outer edge that align right above with where my little finger is rather than sticking out looking for trouble like a ...
  • Re: Close encounter for a new rider

    [quote user="silverflyer"]biggest piece of advice to riders, don't rely a bright coloured gear to be visible to other roads users. you need to be aware of everyone else on the road and you need to anticpate what the other roadusers are going to do. ride like you are invisible.[/quote]   As a new rider I am intrigued by the ...

Each day is a new learning experience for me and I feel I am progressing well. I am 52 and have over 30 years road experience in cars which helps me anticipate "interesting" ...

    Hi all,   first post from a new rider just two months. As a fellow newbie who has just got the hang of filtering, I'd recommend being very careful around 'Keep Clear' areas as you are filtering along.
