Congrats on the new (to you) wheels Doug. Enjoy!
When one of the GS riders, with wife as a pillion starts chucking it from side to side on the straights, like he's warming up the tyres for race day.
My interest starts to wane.

The sensible thing to do is get as close to ride leader as possible so you don't have to watch whats going on behind.

I thought it looks wonderful.

Big plus too as it doesn't clash with my hi -vis BMW vest.

Isn't a high- vis vest mandatory?
