    Shat my pants... . Front end washed out, I blipped the throttle and the rear wheel stepped out to catch the front, all in an instant with a traction control end. You can see how far I had to turn the handlebars to catch it by the screen movement.

    Holy bananas, that was a lucky one! i go through ashton Keynes to go to my dads, the roads along there are horrible with farmers crap everywhere. Why dont they hire people to go along and brush it all to the side hehe.

    I even washed my bike the other day, polished it and everything... 2 days later, bikes full of crap and water marks from the bad weather.

    Yeah but the zzr comes with many awesome features to provide that luxary sitting back in your armchair with yah feet up kinda feeling. You ride my cbf125 and you feel your suspension is gonna give way from underneath ya.

    The road past Wavin at Langley Burrell was knee deep in it, a month back, Manor farm dump all their slurry over on Birds Marsh, leaving it all over the road as they ferry it from the farm, council cleaned it up after i reported it, but why are the farmers not liable the same as a building site?

    Legally they are I believe, it's just not enforced.
