    I've had my Git 2 action cam for a few months now, but have struggled to get satisfactory sound quality when using the mic to record my voice while riding.

    The recording quality of the camera is fine, but as it obviously uses automatic gain, as the wind noise increases, it drops the recording level so that my voice is almost inaudible.

    I have tried the mic in different parts of the helmet, and possibly the main problem is that it is a noisy helmet as regards wind noise. But does anybody have any tips to improve this situation?

    I have thought of using a separate sound recorder, but if the wind noise is the problem, that won't be any better than the Git 2 (unless it doesn't use automatic gain).

    I may be in danger of being labelled the forum bodger! But a couple of weeks back I went for a ride, and stopped for my customary cup of tea. Except that it was a warm day, and I had put a cold drink in the flask, instead of tea. I drank straight from the flask, having put the cap/cup down on the flat part of the tail of the Forza. You guessed it, I rode off, and that was the last that I saw of it.

    Now it is colder, I will be wanting a hot drink, and it will be too hot to drink straight from the flask, so I bought a second flask. Not wanting to repeat the same trick, I have made a small modification to flask and scooter as shown in the pictures.

    Quite overcast, but otherwise a nice dry morning with little wind here, so I went for a ride up to Burrington Combe. It's not quite as spectacular as Cheddar Gorge, but still very beautiful, and took me back into Cheddar Gorge.

    I had been putting off wearing my hi-viz vest as it covered the breast pocket of my jacket where I have my camera mounted. So this morning, I cut a slit in the vest corresponding to where the pocket opening is, and felt slightly safer riding along than in my dark blue motorcycle jacket on its own.

    It rained overnight here, but it looked like brightening up this morning, and I decided to go for a ride up near Blagdon Lake (Somerset).

    One stretch was a little hairy as it was on single track road, under a canopy of trees, with a quite steep camber, and covered in wet leaves. I had just come through the other side, and stopped for a cup of tea when a delivery van came in the other direction. I would not have wanted to meet it on the bit of that single track.

    A few months back my center stand use to start dragging when I went to use my bike. I got it sorted. I don't use my bike as much as I use to due to a new job that is only walking distance away, but the center stand is beginning to drag again. I don't understand why its starting to do this again as I don't use my bike as much so not so much build up of grime to cause this. I do notice that when I turn the handle bars to the left to put the steering lock on I can hear the center stand scrape on the ground so maybe this plays a part in it. Does anyone else notice this when you turn your handle bars to the left to put on the steering lock?

    Still can t make mind on a topbox — Honda Forza 125 Forum UK

    Still can't make mind on a topbox.

    The problem is the dealer told me that 47L ones are not recommended for the 125 forza...apparently too big. 35L is the recommended one otherwise there might be a problem for the rear bearings.

    Sounds reasonable but still not sure which one to buy. 35L/ 39L shad or 47L givi.

    Any advice on this matter much appreciated !

    I went for an early morning (pre sunrise) ride on the Somerset Levels, which was a bit of a test.

    It was quite foggy, and of course the visor was covered in drops of water quicker than I could wipe it off. Also, the Pinlock didn't work as well as I would have hoped. I ended up riding slowly with the visor open.

    My legs were quite cosy in the thermal long-johns, and the gloves just about kept my fingers warm. But I will by buying a balaclava to go under the helmet, mainly to keep my neck warmer.

    Not a ride that I would look forward to on a regular basis, but OK as a once-in-a-while experience, and I managed to come back with a few photos too!

    I have just had a text reminder from Honda for my 1st 12 month service — Honda Forza 125 Forum UK

    I have just had a text reminder from Honda for my 1st 12 month service. Castle Motorcycles is my nearest Honda dealer at 23 miles. I asked them if they would pick up my bike and return it. I was very shocked when they said they would charge me £150.00 + £75 service. So I have decided to ride there myself. Apparently it has to be done by Honda but I would rather take it to a non-Honda local dealer. If I were to do this how would this affect things.

    Mod 1 , the hardest part for me was to up the speed for the avoidance section. Give it some acceleration after the corner, through the speed measuring device, and swerve and braking swiftly and safely once you have gone through. The Forza cornered and braked beautifully. What a superb machine.

    Had a day on a cb600 today as I was thinking of doing the direct access — Honda Forza 125 Forum UK

    Had a day on a cb600 today as I was thinking of doing the direct access. Hips , legs , arms all aching. Got on my forza, rode home and thought don't even bother. The forza is fast enough and comfortable, I wouldn't mind having a go on the 300 but would it b e worth the £600 lessons and test fees just to get the license to ride it, I fear not, long live the forza 125
