    Dark, wet, thick fog, couldn't see so had to open the visor fully; which of course meant no faster than about 45 mph. Eyes running, teers freezing, mud and other bits flicking at my face. Ohhhhh 32 miles run into work. Ouch ouch ouch. Don't understand, as I have a pinlock - correctly fitted...

    Hi, compared to my old inboard disc Honda, I find that if my F650GS has been rained on the brakes just don't work unless I ride down the road dragging the brake lever until the brake suddenly grips. It's caused a few 'moments'... Just wondered if this is normal with "conventional" bike brakes or...

    As the weather has turned (again) so that I have had to change back to my clear visor, and now there is the eternal problem of misting up when riding. It's not convenient or comfortable to ride with the visor up and if it's up a little, then it rattles with the wind. So, who has one of these...

    Just wondered if anyone had any thoughts on this. My GS has Michelin Anakees, normally set just above front 1.9 and rear 2.1 bar. Rider weight about 100kg/high seat. When the roads get wet I'm more aware of the road cracks/joins etc through the back. (A bit more the other day but then found the...
