Re: How to ride in the rain.

Don't misunderstand, I don't ride like that. Now Bruce, that's another story.

Re: How to ride in the rain.

Nice video - only wish I could ride that well - never mind in the rain - in dry conditions.

I do enough riding in the rain on the street - I don't ride wet at the track. Last year I missed out on only two track events due to rain - one was a complete wash out the other I chose not to go out.

Maybe I would go out if I had a rain bike - an inexpensive older bike set up with rain tires and all that.

John likes to make me feel good by saying I'm a good/fast rider - trust me I'm old and slow.

- Look for the same video on youtube, usually is there also
- Play from you tube and do still
- Share----> insert (below)
- You can see below "insert" a long and incomprehensible code
- Copy -----> paste directly on your reply window
- open a beer and enjoy

All us Brits can ride like that in the rain . . .

Re: How to ride in the rain.

I appreciate being crossed up while accelerating out of a wet corner on the power. What is beyond my understanding is being crossed up while decelerating into a slimy wet corner. The left hander at about seconds 35 through 40 is one example of why my roadracing career faced reality many years ago.

Because "youtu.be" is an alias, you must to insert the original . if you look in the address bar you can see :

..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LU-ynRoqDEs&feature=youtu.be...

you need to clean this address until you have:

...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LU-ynRoqDEs...

Then you can insert as I told you, try now

Those TT riders are insane. At those speeds and narrow roads with death a fraction of a second away, they muscle each other like it's frickin touring car championship.
