My new bike, a Yamaha XJ6 Diversion

First ride out on my replacement for the CBF1000, this time it's a Yamaha XJ6 Diversion (aka FZ6R in the US). I give you my first thoughts on the machine even though I've literally just bought it.

Chasing the Vanishing Point, basically how to read roads a little easier.
I give you my take on describing the Vanishing Point or Limit Point, which could be useful for any motorcycle rider who does not currently use a point of reference when accessing the severity of any particular corner. I guess if you asked most riders how they know if they can make it round a given corner safely they''d say "Through experience!" or " I just know!" and perhaps they really do know and experience helps of course, but this system helps take some of the risk or guesswork away. It's not mine of course! I came across this when reading some motorcycle books years ago just after passing my test, the book is called "Motorcycle Roadcraft" and is available through amazon etc http://www.amazon.co.uk/Motorcycle-Roadcraft-Police-Handbook-Motorcycling/d p/011341143X/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1375125579&sr=8-2&keywords=roadcraft I should also state for reference although I didn't really mention it in my video, that most of my speeds were aimed at between 40mph - 60mph and were pretty much done using a single gear with maybe the odd up or down gear change for either entering or exiting tighter bends. I also only used my brakes when absolutely necessary to give a smoother ride overall. There's nothing to stop you using the brakes of course but then there's a whole new ball-game with braking points etc, I was just doing it this way to keep it simple.

Response to Alex's MT09 purchase next year, plus other topics.
I give my thoughts on Alex's aka Blahdeblah52's wish to purchase a Yamaha MT 09 next year. So I talk about finance options, plus, as a tenuously linked topic, my experiences of a couple of bikes I'd bought in the past that weren't as good as they should have been, eg. Fireblade and VFR800. Also, a mention about the whole Google Plus fiasco and part switch to Vimeo, at least for the 1080 quality videos. HD Version here! https://vimeo.com/79812698
