I have now !. I like the little flick to the right before the tight left U turn. You could easily end up in a ditch doing that though

After seeing those vids, I have decided to bring sunglasses tomorrow and leave my gloves at home :lol:

You were trying knickers and bras again weren't you?

Look forward to trying this (riding manoeuvre) tomorrow.

Which would make you a bit of a silly flicker, wouldn't it? :)

Short sleeved shirt too! Though looking out at it now, maybe an umbrella might be better :wink:

At the RoSPA session there was a bloke on a GSX1400 who did all the manoeuvres as if he were on a CG125. Impressive enough as it was, but he did them with a pillion.


Hi Guys
Dave Mason here aka 'Bigdave'
I'm the little guy who Mike Belch has mentioned. I moved to Bristol Last year & intend to defect to BAM from CVAM.
Just thought I would include a photo of me at Avon & Somerset Police HQ whilst on the slow riding evening.
Please note: I also carried out the exercise carrying a pillion.
