  1. Hey Guys,

    I've recorded, edited and uploaded a video of my ride in to work, I work in London so as you can imagine there is quiete a bit of traffic in the mornings which make for some fun splitting.

    Where do you guys Live/Ride to?

    I see city of islington, are you near clerkenwell!?
     

  4. I live in Essex and ride into London 25 miles everyday. I love Splitting, its a lot of fun if there is a Gap. With summer now finally being here - not being on the move gets the bike really hot, I had the bike temp at 108 degrees C today and having that between your legs stuck in traffic is not pretty.

    I work all around London as a Network Engineer. Yesterday I visited 7 clients and rode a total of 48miles in London(excluding my commute in: 25 Miles and my commute out: 34 Miles)

    I don't think sports bikes r that bad for commuting. Ho far u got to travel? I commute 60 miles a day and love it on the yzf. I Try to stay on back roads and thrash the balls off it to get a few hours of quality fun and adrenaline rush every day. i generally time how long certain b roads take and try beating them times every journey, I enjoy having a commute just for an excuse to get out and have some fun.
     

  9. I would love to be able to filter on an R6 rather than the XJ6 that I currently have... My XJ6 weighs 230+KGs whereas the R6 probably 170+KGs.

    Also the R6 is smaller(not only height but width).

    I'll find out in April when I buy my R6 - Waiting to turn 21.

    My commute into London ia roughly 30 miles in and 30 miles out. A third of my journey is usually traffic like that. Will post some more filtering videos for you guys...
