Tips for winter?

Tips for winter?

Started riding a Honda CB500F as a learner since June and already had my fair share of near crashes due to gravel, dead animals on blind bends and other stuff on the road from farmers.

Just looking for any advice that will make my first winter on the bike a smooth one 🙂 should i change my tire pressure? 33F and 36R or keep it the same? dont have any heated gear yet, just been using what i have to keep warm

I drive a bit on the dual carriageway than spend about 15/20 minutes on backroads to reach work. Thanks

EU changes to A2 licence, not on RSA website?

EU changes to A2 licence, not on RSA website?

FEMA reported back in May 2020 that “From 1 November 2020 it is possible to do the A2-licence test with a 250 cc motorcycle instead of 400 cc”

https://www.femamotorcycling.eu/a2-motorcycle-licence/

An updated article from FEMA states “This means that from 1 November 2020 all European Union member states must have implemented the lower displacement for A2 test motorcycles in their national laws.”

https://www.femamotorcycling.eu/a2-t…Je-CMhUooNsBHs

I have looked on the RSA website and it seems to state the old rule, which is fair enough as we are not in November yet, but I’m surprised the change isn’t at least mentioned.

Track Bike

Track Bike

Was looking at a track bike there before the lockdown. No V5 but has the chassis number on the frame but no engine number on the casing whatsoever. Run a mile or is that the norm for track weapons
