    Ryco oil filters

    Thread Starter: Southern scratcher

    Anyone heard of any issues regarding use of Ryco oil filters in bike engines?

    Helmet lifespan?

    Thread Starter: HEsch

    How long would you anticipate a helmet to last, sans crashes or impact? Do you replace on a time schedule (ie, every 5 years), or kms travelled (I don't know, but, maybe 25 or 50,000kms?). Or use some other form of measurement to determine a new one is needed?

    motorcyclists to be removed from the roads ?- predictable result of zero vision plan

    Thread Starter: Temporary-Kiwi

    I've been reading miss agenters "zero vision" road safety plan, its apparent its basis is to make driving on public roads a safe place to"crash", which on its own will eventually make motorcycle riding more dangerous, leading to them banning motorcycles from the roading network - as there's no safe...

    Brakes Locking Up

    Apparently brakes lock up on their own. Or at least according to the person who wrote this complaint to the local council. "There is a very dangerous amount of gravel build up on a few of the intersections on this road, I've nearly come off my motorcycle due to the brakes locking up on it. It's...

      Some technical infringements in one new class which were apparently sorted before they went out on track

      Indeed, but they got off on the grass at that last start but the CTAS coverage wasn't close enough to show us exactly what happened, and they had a good comeback from that - well done boys .

      His favourite action? What about you Kick were you happy with the weekend?

      I watched a bit of the CTAS coverage and that was pretty good compared to previous efforts including the post race interviews.
