    Anyone use a tail bag?

    Nice idea, but my sexy one piece body condom wouldn't fit. Will have to just keep my eye out for the right tail pack.

    Anyone use a tail bag?

    That would have been perfect if half the size Still has the hassle of taking on and off, I'll eventually get the right tail bag, just harder to find than expected.

    Anyone use a tail bag?

    Yamaha don't make a specific tail bag. Ironically I didn't even think about a tank bag, even though I've had a bagster tank cover with mounts on for the last year. I've just kept it on to stop the tank getting scratched when parked amongst the bikes outside work. I'll take a look but I don't think they do any tank bags which still give easy access to the filler cap. Had a look at Kriega but they look like bags and I'm quite vain, I'd like something which looks like a small shell bag, similar to the hard shell type motorbike backpacks.
  6. I've had enough carrying a backpack just to carry my waterproofs and disc lock, can anyone recommend a smallish tail bag I can leave permanently on the bike?

    Biker down course

    I wish they had something like Bikerdown out here, all the training that I've found so far is track based. Which sort of defeats the object for me. They don't teach SMIDSY out here, not sure why. Anyone who doesn't know of it.

    Hi, yeah there was an issue over the weekend, the hosting company auto upgraded Linux which needed patching which took the server down.

    Ear protection

    @bippo I haven't seen the C4 out here, will have to take another look and see if can be ordered from anywhere. I've currently got the Shark Evoline 3 flip which lets a lot of wind noise through, that and the horrid droning when commuting is awful. That aside, I got the new plugs through and tried them this morning and they are noticably better than the previous foam ones I was using.

    Forum update

    Hi all, it was that time I was dreading, updating the forum software, luckily it all went smoothly! Few new things you might notice: Post before registering - allows new users to pre post and then register. Hopefully that'll help increase our members Animated GIFs - Not sold on this, but I've had a few requests so let's see how it goes Faster! - Lazy loading images and better image optimization As always let me know if you notice any issues. Cheers Alex

    Ear protection

    I'm tempted by the Schuberth C3 Pro Helmet, just expensive and I can't get one to try before buying.

    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?

    A MERRY CHRISTMAS

    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
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/308263621/jarvish-the-smartest-motorcycle-helmet-ever-made/description Looks interesting.
