Is everybody enjoying this wind we are having? Not sure how it is in other areas but up here it’s a little scary. Bet you can vouch for that Mayoh.

Certainly kept me on my toes on my commute last night and this morning, made filtering a bit more interesting, lol. Kept the indoors last night, feet up, fire on, no chance of going out.

Take a bit of advice and ride to the current conditions, take care.

Oooh, I know it isn't NEARLY as bad down south as it is up north, but I am sure getting battered around a bit.
I am even beginning get worried about my bike blowing over...

Yesterday on my way home i felt like my bike was sliding sideways the wind was so bad... kept shifting sideways across most of the lane if not into the next one, really bad when going past a side road and suddenly get blown sideways from wind coming down side road and very nearly hit a couple of those mid road islands! our bike is especially bad in the wind! Lucky at home my bike is hidden by two walls so wind not a problem but have been making an effort when parking outside to park with the bike leaning so the wind cannot blow it over.

Agreed with Scott here, usually you get pushed by the wind, but yesterday with the wet roads, I felt a gust actually slide me across.
New tyres are about to be ordered, just have to find the cheapest price I can and my friend will beat it :D

Yeah exactly sorry I can see that I've missed out the info that it was very wet yesterday which is why I was sliding sideways. And that it with pirellis but on done about 70 miles on them so still a bit fresh.
