    Ear protection

    What helmet are you using and did it actually make much difference?

    Ear protection

    I've had enough of listening to the droning noise from the akropovic on my commutes and have just ordered some 'better' foam ear plugs (Hearos Xtreme Protection NRR 33). I'm now thinking I should have gone down the custom route, is anyone using them?

    Happy Christmas all. I’ve got the Ghost it’s a good cam just annoying you can’t charge off computer. I can see my quad lock kit wrapped up 😉
  4. Yeah pros and cons. Thinking of weight penalites though, I ride with a helmet cam doesn't have any noticable difference. However it did save my and my insurance when I was hit by a taxi in the bus lane a few months back. Taxi driver drove off, luckily i had it all on video.

    Have you had a look at anti-vibration inserts? Such as these, much better than just heavier bar ends https://fasstcoaustralia.com.au/products/anti-vibration-inserts Also could try using anti vibration bars which MX riders use, check Protaper have heard a lot of good reviews about their bars.https://www.protaper.com/product/32/contour-handlebars/black

    Sold the Virago

    Looks really clear, how is it without the mirrors? I'd love to do something similar to get rid of them would make it so much easier for commuting.

    NEW rider with new questions

    Yeah make sure it's running first, change the oil and make sure you change the break fluid!

    New to Sport Bikes R1 or R6

    Welcome aboard Jack, both great bikes. No one else's opinions will be better than your riding them both and see what works best for you. For me I'd get the R1 for general road use, but the R6 will faster round the track for most average riders.

    @drewpy thinking of corners, what I learnt which I was completely unaware of was how they calculate the recommended speed signs for corners. I assume it's similar in the UK, in Australia the signs show the maximum speed for the corner which gives you five seconds of visibility. I always thought it was based on a 1970's car with crappy brakes 🤣
