    And on the flip side of that coin there’s a bunch of collisions taking place where the car driver simply pushed the brake pedal too hard, locked up all wheels and slid into whatever was infront. Abs helps with returning steering control, but it’s unfortunately somewhat countered by target fixation.

    One thing i did with my kids when teaching them to drive was a series of panic stops .

    No ! Stand on the bloody thing!

    Yes, before ABS that happened. And when switching between bikes with and without ABS, we'll have to think about it and adapt our responses to the equipment in use. Not unlike when switching between right and left hand shift bikes.

    Once they're well and truly habituated to that protocol, expand their abilities further by letting them drive a non ABS car. And develop a new set of sensitivities for threshold braking. Lifelong learning.

    yup.

    Not only that, but if you're in a slide, you're not likely to have the skill to steer out of it and will only make things worse. Stand on the bloody brakes!

    Anyway, back on topic

    any current owners of the PR7 - would you buy another one ?

    on paper these really seem to be the bike for me, but I’ve never even seen one, let alone know anyone who has one

    thanks

    best adv. trail-enduro bike I have ever had. Very happy with it. Cold start in hard winter is not the best; other than that, it is great

    Weak battery or lack of proper cold-start?

    I will check again the valves. I heard that leaving the exhaust ones a bit open 18-20) helps when it is not cold, it starts perfectly

    I'm confused. You want the ODM number, not the OEM # to try to find it cheaper?

    hi it is not a matter of price. The problem is that I dont have a dealer close to my city and online I just can buy twin air that can be ok but i prefer to go on with the original one
