    Let me guess why, traffic, animals or falling of the cliff? :(

    The problem is I can't go on a track on a restricted bike and I really don't want a small A2 learner bike at my height. :rolleyes:

    A lot of people take corners they know way too fast to stop, and I regularly see idiots almost ploughing into rocks that fell off the mountain or occasionally wildlife in the road.

    Agree with this, I ride pretty slow round corners I can't see round, or that I don't know - the UK is full of blind corners/gravel in the road etc. only on corners which are open and I know well will I get a decent lean on - but I'm nowhere near getting my knee down on any corner. Enough to get rid of my chicken strips though.

    It's mainly entering or exiting large roundabouts I ever get chance to scrape a footpeg tbh,very rarely on any country road

    Ah yeah, I must admit a nice wide smooth roundabout does feel good :)

    We rode up through north Norfolk today, and there was so much gravel on the road. No just in the centre of the lane, but all over as well as the normal muck from after the harvest.

    Not too bad for a Chinese 125.

    I don't think I'll get rid of them either, the profile is so aggressive. I think more so than usual because the rim is only 3.5 for a 130 section tyre.

    Yes you can, my sister took her restricted VFR400 out on track several times, and yes she'd get blasted past on the straights she enjoyed herself.

    That was at Le Mans, she took a GSX-R 600 out on track after than and loved it, now has a CBR600RR

    I'm happy with the Angel GT's, they warm up quickly and stick nicely (wet & dry). :cool:

    Is it me or the camera angle? They look like they aren't sitting evenly. Surely the wet patch should be down the middle but it's over to the left?

    I'm going to guess it's not just been ridden and he was wheeling it on wet grass so it'll be lent to the left.
    You'd be going round in circles riding on something that out :D
