Just thought I'd check in on the forums, and I see you are being as eloquent, and verbose, as always.

Loving the blog Mr Wolf.

Couldn't agree more with that analysis... It looks like some kind of joke where they've purposely given them bad tyres

A motorcycle is the archetypal slippery slope, pal. Once you have spent time on a bike you are a lost soul. Or is that just a private excuse...? :laughing: It may have been a private excuse, but I'm thinking now it just became a public one to a fair chunk of the MC community :wink: Oh, just for inf...

I must admit this has happened to me twice. I always found flashing my brake lights 3 times, and putting up the internationally recognised middle finger, always got them to back off. I guess people associate bikers with gangs, a warning goes a long way. I guess you could always play with the kill sw...
