    Hi all

    The highlight of my recent tour of the Lakes recently.



    The DCT was excellent and performed better than my GS on the steepest corners. 

    Cheers

    Ken

    I've seen a couple of vids crossing the Hardknott pass.
    But I felt I got a better feel for some of the steeper gradients with yours.
    I'm looking forward to giving it a go.

    Cheers. Most fails are folks who stay in 2nd gear toooooo ping. Mid corner they grab the clutch and before they select and engage 1st it’s too late . Momentum lost , bike stalls and over they go, I selected manual and left her in 1st, trying to be smooth as I pushed slowly through those corners with weight forward. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
