For anyone that may be interested, a riding instructor I know mentioned
that there is a new revised edition ( Published August 2013 ) of the
Motorcycle "Roadcraft" book, as used by UK Police, and recommended it
as a good read for brushing up on those riding skills  :028:

Hi Marcus,

Mirrors : Modifications and Appearance / Mirrors .... Go to Page 2 and Post No. 46.
The E-Bay listing number is now 330968724965 and they seem to have stock at the moment.
Cost = £14.95 including UK delivery.

Rear Lights - check out the "HOW TO : Add Rear LED Stalk Lights" article I wrote on fitting them,
which includes details of the supplier.
Cost = £39.99 including UK delivery.

Note that I have no affilliation to the sellers of either product,
other than being one of their satisfied customers !   :169:

They told us to expect this on our Bike Safe course during the summer. A little concerned about some of the reviews on Amazon - some quite damning  :005:

Much as I thought the course was good, it was interesting that myself and another Explorer riding student were being told to rev the bikes more and keep them in a much narrower rev range. It seemed odd at the time, until I subsequently rode an R1200; I realised that it was essential to do that to ride around the limitations of that oddball engine!  :008:
