I'm just back from a ride to Bridgwater (about 9 miles away) to pick up some stuff from Argos. When I came back out from Argos, I forgot to put my earplugs in. First, I thought that the exhaust was blowing, and then that the wind had reached near gale-force, before I realised that the plugs weren't in. I got about a mile before I had to stop and put them in.

While queuing in some traffic, a guy filtered past on a Yamaha motorbike. He was wearing a thin black jacket, ordinary black trousers, and black shoes. I was almost surprised to see him wearing a helmet!

The other thing to report is that there was a very strong and gusty cross wind on the open stretch between here and Bridgwater. It would have frightened me considerably the first time that I rode the Forza, but I now know just how stable it is in such conditions. The only thing that I don't like about this scooter is the bit where I have to get off at the end of each ride. ;-)

One observation I have about my Forza is that if I inflate the rear tyre to the recommended 33 PSI, it is much more prone to feel like the scooter is hopping about on uneven road services. I prefer a couple of PSI less.

It got me thinking about recommended tyre pressures. Is that 33 PSI suggested with the consideration that we may be carrying a pillion?
