My theory is to do with body type and use:
Mr Rossi = Racing snake.
Me = Jungle gorilla.
Mr Rossi = Sunshine, glamour, flat surfaces, fine dining & balanced diet. Riding Skillz.
Me = Overcast, cold and wet, Notts and Sherwood council pothole 'repairs', chippy dinner on a Friday. Managing to keep between kerb and centreline.
No I can't feel anything different on a normal run out to my mums on a sunny day, but something is going on as the vibes have reduced. Not the high speed tingle in the boots, but the buzz in the bars and the rattly bit of fairing at low revs and under load.
You are right - I will probably not notice anything. Maybe unless I hit that cold, wet, greasy pothole on a corner one day. Chances of that in the UK though, ha!
Would I buy a set of frame braces at E389.00? Absolutely no way! Fork brace at E100? Definitely. Home brew frame brace for around E50? Worth a try.
