Can sympathise with that

I actually went out and bought a car last month after nine years of getting fooking drenched on my bike.

So, now the missus has a car and I STILL get bloody wet..... Mind you, a blackbird does have some advantages - at least my feet stay dry (some consolation!)

I am beginning to believe that the actual official time for the rain to start is: "Worzel's about to get on his bike with his laptop computer in his back-pack and go to work/home" time.

Glad its not just me then

Do Yoshi make hot ups for canoes??

You mean they let you ride around on the Pirelli's in the rain over there??? My good mates down the local plod house are still concerned enough with my safety to put a stop to such dangerous carrying on.... Anyone got a cheap dodgy lawer?

BUT.... four greasy tram tracks down the middle of just about every farking road here are no worries at all

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

You tried the SC1 rear or SC2 front?? (no not on the DR!!!)

I've got a couple and wondered what they'd like?? Maybe on a cooler day the rear would be Ok??

Tyres

Joe tried SC1 front and rear but they tore appart after a very short time on his R1 at Pasir Gudang. The track is pretty abrasive and hard on tyres and the temp is too high. Even SC2 have a hard time at Sepang which is kinder to tyres. A race weekend with 30 mins practice, 30 mins qualifying and two 15 lap races will see a set of SC2's off half way through the second race. For those on a one tyre budget SC2 front and SC3 rear might be the ideal compromise. In a cold climate SC1 might work as a pair or like you say SC1 front and SC2 rear.
