We had a accident today near by on the motorway. Fortunately, the lady drove a "tin can" (that's how we call cars ). The car is nothing but scrap metal now... Reason: A 16 years old tyre burst. So you might think about changing your tyres too. They are about 12 or 13 y.o. meanwhile! They say that tyres should be changed at least every 7 years ...
Most German riders prefer the Bridgestone "BT45" typres. Maybe Japanese riders prefer other tyres?
Hei Kona ra Andreas . Achtung, dies ist die Stellungnahme eines notorisch oberlehrerhaften und besserwisserischen Dummschwätzers
Very good point, I will check out the new tyre options soon. Not much riding happening at the moment, it's getting too cold for me!
Meet a German guy today (at a 6 year olds birthday party, welcome to my world) who was a child just after the war. He is an engineer and has a theory that the world oil supplies will be running out over the next 10-20 years and is working on the post war coal and wood fired engines that he remembered as a child!
So in a nutshell if we wait long enough, no more cars to bother us on the road.
Hey nice to see the Japanese Estrella riders joining in the thread.
Hei Kona ra
