ARR RAW Round Table Discussion with Travellers - Episode 13

Featuring Shirley Hardy-Rix & Brian Rix, Grant Johnson, Sam Manicom, Graham Field and Jim Martin

Pushing Limits, Red Flag Dangers, Being a Rebel: When you’re riding how do you determine what your limits are? How do you know when something is dangerous for you? Is it something you learn as you go? Do you go by your gut feeling? Are we hardwired to adapt to environments, to assess dangers, react to them and take action? Have you ever done something which may be considered by some to be “crazy” or a “stupid decision” perhaps “rebellious”, where you may have looked back and thought I got lucky with that or that you may have regretted and learned from? Did you see the danger flags and ignore them? Is an area or situation not dangerous just because you made it through okay? 

Technology & Motorcycles: Honda's Self Balancing Motorcycle, ABS Brakes, Traction Control and more. How does new technology affect motorcycling as a whole? The advantages to the industry with regards to a declining motorcycle population, does or will the new technology encourage new riders needed such as women, younger, smaller riders?
