My first opportunity to try my Contour HD  video camera in the Fury. It needs to be mounted higher up.

Flipping cold today and <4ºC. This video clip shows how little grip you get from cold A048's. This was just leaving my road with very few revs (for a bike engine):

11th January

After this weekend's lack of grip in the cold, I ordered some new Yokohama A048R tyres from Polley Motorsport . £340.68 for a set of four 185/65R13 delivered in medium compound. The current tyres are above the tread wear indicators but the grip degrades by quite a bit when they ge towards their end of life.

My last set of tyres were fitted in September 2008 (at 2800 miles), so these have lasted a lot longer than before. Currently have just under 7000 miles on the clock, so this last set have lasted me over 4000 miles. Having said that, I've re-read my diary and noticed that I was thinking of replacing them way back in June 2009. I just never got round to it

12th January

My Yokohama A048R tyres arrived today. All I need to do now is find someone that can fit them properly .
