Which is why My Commando and Trident stay at home whilst I ride out on the Interceptor.
Speed limits now are just a stick to beat you with or to empty your wallet. It's dangerous because
few obey the limit and the cars are barely aware bikes exist.

One suggestion based on what I see in your photo: the operating lever on the front brake plate looks to be sub-optimally positioned. You'll find that your front brake will operate much better if you remove that lever and rotate it clockwise on its splines. A a general rule, with the brake applied fully, you want the angle between the inner brake cable and lever on the brake plate to be slightly less than 90 degrees.

If you don't have enough adjustment on your cable, you may need to shorten the outer sheath.


You were quite right Gregg, and this has been adjusted. Much better now.
