Congrats Reg. I'm sure you'll pile on the miles on that.

Best of luck Reg. Loads of problems with BMWs. Shaft drive; gearbox; cylinder; forks. Get used to Customer Service coffee and sell it just before the warranty runs out.

Should've bought a Super Tenere. Not sexy, not powerful, but good for 500,000 trouble free and cheap miles.

Stick with the quick shifter. Works best when you're properly on the power, or with the throttle completely closed on the way down. I've a 20 plate GS 1250 on loan that I've put 12,000 miles on it since June and it gets better the more you use it. A mate doesn't use his shifter and we both noticed a difference at Mallory Park when we swapped.

No issues with reliability either.

Sorry for your loss, my mum died of cancer over twenty years ago and it is a difficult thing to come to terms with, I found that going for a drive or just washing the car was a good way to work through my thoughts and lighten my mood. As you say men are not very good at discussing their thoughts and mental health care has been a neglected area over many years, hopefully the onset of spring and the ending of lockdown will help people who are struggling.

Just started watching Reg's videos. Informative, enjoyable and, unlike a lot of IAM types, not the least bit pompous. I am even prepared to forgive him for his occasional incursions over the border to Yorkshire.

I'm interested in the "don't grass yourself up" statement in this ^^ video Reg, with regard to making a mistake whilst under test?

For me, i'd rather someone notices their mistake, comes clean, and explains that it was a mistake and then explains how they will avoid making it again than ignores it completely, hopes the examiner doesn't notice, and carries on?


Ok, there are mistakes and there are mistakes. If you run through a red light at ninety, then i think we can safely say any examiner (DSA/advan) will have noticed that one, where as a short period doing say 34 in a 30 perhaps not, but self appraisal, critiscism and responsive learning are key to forming better habits in everything we do.

This is just specific advice that I give to candidates about to take an advanced test - I'm not asking them to ignore their mistake. I just want them to not focus on it too much. It doesn't happen very often, but I can think of 2 occasions during test when a candidate has pointed out a minor error which I hadn't spotted myself. Not biggys, but overthinking these mistakes can spoil their overall performance on test.

Sorry to hear about your Dad, Reg. Interesting to hear he did rally driving in the 60s. The mid 60s to mid 70s was my era too. smile
I've still got the entry lists from those days buried deep in a box somewhere.

I understand only too well what you mean about mental health having lost my daughter towards the end of 2019 to suicide.
Thankfully there were no restrictions on funerals back then which was a blessing. The thought of what others have had to endure since chills me.
There was a different sting in the tail for me: days before the inquest was due to be held the pandemic caused it to be put on hold.
Rinse and repeat. At times it felt like Groundhog Day. The wait ended up being a full 13 months of pain.

Food shopping and exercise have always been permitted reasons to leave the house.
A bit of creativity with regard to the route to/from obtaining the victuals and the need to focus on the task in hand provided some much needed relief.

I'm subscribed to your channel but notifications to my Inbox seem to have stopped. Any idea why?

I have no idea. You have to sign up for notifications separately from subscription by pressing the little bell button.

I have a video scheduled to go live at 18.30 today - see if you get a notification & let me know.

Nope.

I was getting youtube e-mail notifications to my Inbox: 'Reg Local just uploaded a video'. Not any more.
They seem to have ceased sometime last year. Despite my not changing anything.
Now I only find out if there is a new one if I happen to dip into the Advanced Driving category on here.
