Yep be careful out there peeps,.....unfortunatly im not able to
get out on mine this weekend, I suffer from 2 prolapsed discs
in my back and they went on me last sunday, so had to have
time off work,.... feeling a lot better now, but not enough to get
on the bike :(

i dont have a bike lads but i always say if you are on a bike then its always better to be 4 times more aware when on the roads
be safe out therei always look twice for bikes

Sounds like a false neutral, usually, but not always, the main reason
for that is due to not tapping the gear lever hard enough, so try to
be more positive with the change.

lol, trust me i kick it hard enough, its a tzr 250

Ok well more info is needed then,....is it actually slipping, as in when
you accelerate the engine revs go up but speed does not increase ?,
or slipping out of gear into a false neutral ?, does it do it in every
gear ?,.....have you recently changed the oil etc etc ?.

Well despite my bad back at the mo, the temptation to get bike
out is all to much, so im off out for a short bimble. I will no
doubt suffer for it later, but what the hell, it'll be worth it!. LOL

Well ive just got home after a very enjoyable 60 mile ride, ended up
going over the Yorkshire Dales and ending up at Settle. Bumped into
a couple of mates at Settle and was going to go up to Kirkby Lonsdale
(Devils Bridge) with them, then over to Caton and back via the Trough
of Bowland, but decided to head towards home instead, glad I did as
well cos the temps have dropped quite quickly and its certainly a bit
nippy now.
