The brakes work well!
« on: August 23, 2015, 05:50:53 PM »
Well, they were all out yesterday, weren't they?! :013:

I had one guy reverse onto a main 60mph road, just after a blind bend.
One guy deciding to overtake the car in front, just as I was about to come past him (yes, I was indicating).
And a tractor, also in a 60mph limit, turning across my path.
And, on the way home, all the traffic had stopped on a fast sweeping bend, so I now know that the cornering ABS actually works on MY bike!

All I can say is thank goodness for great brakes!  :821:

I've never had so many close calls in one day. It must be the hot weather baking everyone's brains! :008:
