Considering how close your headlight was the times I was braking for corners, I think we know my brake use has improved! :???

"Braking for corners"...see you are seeking arse contact.
Why brake when there is no need :biggrin2

It's something that Honda riders do after a couple of hours in the saddle.
They usually have a cup of tea and a pie.

I was tempted to get out on the bike but I was frozen in my garage trying just trying to track down my heated gloves so thought better of it. At least the weather is looking "ok" for the commuting to work.

We still have lots of ice arround the garage and driveway.
I don't fancy tackling that in the dark on a road bike.
Local Petrolhead dates for 2018.

On the 1st the field was so icy it even make the play about on the XT tricky...but great fun. :P

Roads and pathways are a bad mix of ice, frost and clear bits. Not sure I would trust two wheels at the moment.

Experienced several bits of 'wet' roads which had a nice layer of ice under the water.
