Road courtesy

Road courtesy

Is it just me? can I sound you on this one. Came back from a long drive but got stuck in below speed limit traffic on N4. It was busy both ways.
Now in fairness most cagers tend to move in a bit too let me through. Great. But there are some that don’t.

I took note of the non-moving drivers’ gender. Guess what, the overwhelming majority was women.
What do you think?

What other drivers tend to hug the road?

How do you handle this. Wait. Take risk. Flash them!

Buchan won from Gearlink Kawasaki rider Ben Wilson, with Andy Reid from Jordanstown third on his first Superbike ride on the Milwaukee Yamaha.

James Egan, Alastair Seeley and Jamie Hamilton made up the top six.

Glenn Irwin, who set a new lap record in winning the Supersport race, crashed unhurt while leading the Sunflower.

The Carrickfergus rider came off on the opening circuit of the 12-lap race.

Buchan won the first Superbike outing of the day from Wilson, with 2013 Irish Superbike champion Nico Mawhinney completing the podium.

Irwin was followed home in the first Supersport event by fellow Carrickfergus man Seeley, with Wilson third.

Irwin was also victorious in Supersport race two, with Wilson runner-up and Seeley third on the Mar-Train Yamaha.

Reid fell off unhurt in Superbike race one while Christian Elkin took the chequered flag in the opening 125cc/Moto 3 outing.

In court

In court

Three men arrested and charged with performing a ‘lewd act’ in a p*** shop appeared before a judge in the Circuit Court the following day.

He asks the first man to stand: "What is your name?" he asked.

"John," the man answered.

"And why were you arrested?" the judge asked.

"I was by the magazine rack in a p*** shop holding a big fat cigar and blowing smoke." he answered.

The judge didn’t see anything lewd or seriously wrong with that, so he find the man €300 for a smoking offence.

The judge calls the second man to stand.

"What’s your name?" he asked. "John," the guy answered. "Oh, another John? And why were you arrested?" the Judge asked.

“I was by the magazine rack in a p*** shop holding a big fat cigar and blowing smoke." he answered.

Again, the judge saw nothing offensive, and fined the man €300 for a smoking offence.

‘This so-called p*** shop is beginning to sound more like a smoking club!’ he thought.

He calls the third and final man accused to stand.

"What’s your name?? No wait, let me guess, it’s another John?" he said.

"Yes, it is, your Honour, but everybody calls me ‘Smoke’."

Full Control – how to ride manual

Full Control – how to ride manual

Spotted this on another forum, I haven’t seen it mentioned before but it’s definitely worth a post because it’s really excellent.

It’s called Full Control, it’s a riding manual from the Norwegian Motorcycle Union. The English version of the book is freely available as a pdf here:

http://www.rideitright.org/documents…ntrol_2013.pdf

I watched Twist of the Wrist 2 a few weeks ago and some of it will be familiar from that but this is much more road focused and it’s from a European point of view. The whole thing is really practical and covers everything from the physics of cornering, to body position, to what’s going on in your head, to dealing with traffic, to weather, to touring and pretty much every situation you’ll deal with.

They should be handing out copies of this with the IBT because it’s a really great reference to have for anyone learning.
Not just for newbies either I’d say there’d be something in it for many experienced riders too.

I think it’s excellent anyway and well worth spreading the word.
