    I have to admit I've been riding a bike other than the DMW. I failed by the way...

    On a more genuine note - watch what he does with his head, observe the point at which he changes what he's looking at, how his focus changes.

    I hate to be a miserable old cnut, but there's something about the incessant electro-fucketry of new BM's that really gets up my arse and gives me a sharp stab in the large intestine.....so, it not only has Automatic Stability Control, with 2 modes for "rain" and "road" which apparently 'enhance range of use while boosting safety on slippery surfaces', but you can avail yourself of 3 additional modes (by paying for the fuckers) through the optional "Ride Modes Pro Feature". If that is not enough, you can also shell out for the Dynamic ESA feature, which is electronic suspension adjustment for fuck's sake. And that's not all...the "E-gas Ride-by-Wire" system utilises a twist grip sensor to send signals direct to the engine management system so it can adjust the opening angle of the throttle valve(s). That's a lot of gizmo-shit you won't be able to repair after you've dropped the thing a hundred times on your round the world adventure-equivalent experience type scenario. What happens if you comes across a landscape-event that you haven't bought the right mode plug-in for? What happens if you're on the "Road" and it starts to "Rain" and you find that your boosted safety on slippery surfaces is compromised?

    in Northern Europe they sell them with an intermediate "drizzle" mode - which solves this issue

    I thought I read that it replaced both ride and rain

    Dear Sir,

    Flying into St Bees Is. by helicopter would most certainly not look like that as that island in the film clip is in fact on the opposite coast (west) of Aust, it is in the Kimberley region and quite remote, once a pearl farm (where I worked) it is now a Barramundi fish farm and I think St Bees would in fact be much nicer!


    Kind regards
    Michael

    Dear Sir Micheal,

    Flying into anywhere other than where I actually am (see pic below) would be better than the big fat nothing that forms my current sorry existence, but as for the accuracy of the material I posted I can only say that I just lifted what was shown at the original link i.e. the pics'n'text you quoted*, and whilst I accept the corrective information you kindly proffer**, I originally posted it not so much as a specific reference to a particular location where any prospectively available ejector seat might land me at, but more in the form of a general pleading for someone to get me the fuck out of here :-D

    Of course no-one here or elsewhere has any form of responsibility for making even the slightest action toward sorting out my dire mess of a life, which will always be my sole fault, but I believe the colloquial term is "Don't ask, don't get"*** :1drink

    Kindest regrades,

    Planktonianus Maximus.


    * As indicated by the use therein of "...". I suppose they cover any use of the wrong flyover images by the insertion of the word 'would' in their text?
    ** I refer the Honourable Gentleman to the Disclaimer mentioned some posts ago.
    *** Perhaps more accurately rendered as "Keep asking, Don't get - No Phukking Surprise" - As mentioned previously, someone must be willing to adopt me or take me on as a tax write off, or maybe one of you could pimp me out to the previously referred to Undemanding MILFionairess. That's not too much for this Po Sukka to ask for is it?****
    **** Yes, yes it is.

    You are quite right in your general proposition - As you will recall, Rule 7 of the Martha Farquar Motosickles Articles of Association states "How would they fix it in Africa?"

    As with all Modern Vehicules there is a big question as to whether one should run a machine that is essentially irreparable & therefore non-functional once the ECU* phuks out in a post apocalyptic setting. I must of course admit to bending Rule 7 by avoiding running straight points on my Bitsa-Boxer (The DMW), and instead utilising a modified Beancan housing a Hall Trigger to feed my Boyer Ignition, but then I never could get on with points...

    Though I wholeheartedly support the general principle of Rule 7, I must admit to an ongoing academic interest in the development of self determining engine & suspension management systems, reaching way back to the Williams Grand Prix Engineering FW14/FW14B & its precursors. It is my understanding that Electronic Suspension Adjustment has been applied by Yamaha et al on their MOTOGP bikes for some time, and tho/ough I personally prefer the security of a predictable platform that I can repair without reference to a Dealership & their diagnostic tools**, the idea that the Yamahas knew where they were on the circuit & could adjust the suspension settings to be optimal for each corner quite tickles my technical funny bone. The extension of this kind of facility to road bikes is predictable, though of course its efficacy is perhaps limited by the fact that the bike you or I might ride won't be barrelling round the same 14 or so turns all weekend...

    But one cannot un-ring the bell.



    * Or associated sensors etc. One might refer to the photo below, the current HRC mod to overcome events such as the recent Muckuez/Pedaldrossa interface which has cost Mark one penalty point & cost HRC 25 manufacturers points...

    re Don't forget your homework...

    There are 3 categories of people on this planet:

    1) Those who already have power (and those who crave it) which includes
    Psychopaths and Money Junkies.
    2) The vast majority of the world's population who are held captive by the
    Cost of Living (Price of Life) and various 'Manufactured Consent'
    strategies employed by those in Cat. 1
    3) People who have taken the trouble to disentangle themselves from both
    Cat. 1 and Cat. 2 influences.

    Category 3 people often lead lives of difficulty because they have to continuously struggle against the MindWank of Existence, which creates alienation and frustration. Quite often, they own and ride motorcycles to alleviate some of this stress, although very few of them accept such concepts as Automatic Stability Control, or Electronic Suspension Adjustment, seeing these things as nothing more than yet another example of Manufactured Consent. The Rothschilds are another manufactured entity designed to force acquiescence among the general population for the way things are. Behind the Rothschilds is a force that creates structures for the
    Psychopaths and Money Junkies to occupy, so as to effect control of Cat, 2 people, sucking the juice out of them like ants and aphids. This world need not be like this, but unfortunately Cat. 2 people have no plan, or willingness, to effect change. Even Cat.3 people are stuck for answers, most of the time.

    Don't have time for Homework Part 2, as I've just won £25 on the lottery and I'm going to live a life of hedonistic excess and sybaritic joy for as long as I can before the money runs out.....
