    Calling All South peeps! Ride/ meet tomorrow??

    I`v just heard this vicious rumour that it will be 18degrees and sunny tomorrow

    Was thinking it would be a good time for us RSV`s of the south to meet up for one last ride before winter really hits!

    So whos in? suggestions on places to meet, routes and coffee stops Would be all good too

    I know, I`v had two sets of them, got 4000 miles out the last set on the R1
    They are crap in the cold too, good on track, but once they`v seen a track they are never as good on the road again. Tire of choice for a trip to france

    I digress

    Hmm maybe it was just a vicious rumour! Just checked a few and I`m gettin rain in the morning too, mayyybe clearing up as the day goes on. Looks like monday is abit better, but guessing your working?

    Yup working
    That explains a lot, didn't realise they were crap in the cold went out early, two weeks ago & it was bloody freezing, apart from our visors fogging up all the time in the mist the bike felt very unstable, throw it into a corner & it felt like it was just going to fall over when we stopped at McDonalds on A24 to warm up my tyres were no where near as warm as everyone elses.
