Mixed day on the GOR !

Well.............. it sort of goes like this: had to give Sunday the flick as the virus still had a hold however, feeling better on Monday and after the rain cleared managed to get a ride in however.................on the way up to Lorne couldn't work out why the traction control (set on 4) kept kicking in on the right handers

Got to Lorne and on close inspection, there was a nice slippery "plastic coating" on the tire and I rather large hole in the heal of my boot ; didn't end there on the way back to the Bay noticed a breeze blowing up my sleave, stooped to take some snaps of the fire effected areas and rather expensive Dianese glove had come apart so...............that was it back to the ranch to contemplate a very mixed day; upside was very little traffic and F4 running superbly

Expensive does not always mean quality!

It is good that you noticed and took a look at your tires before something nasty happend. That glove would not have been much help in a slide.

How old are those gloves?

The boot on the back wheel is pretty common, most of us feel it before we burn our gloves off
That's why I have the big heel guard on the R/H side.

The first time I saw the damage to my right boot, I was at home cleaning them after a track day. I was scratching my head. I ride an FZ6 every day & spent the track day jumping between an RGV250 & the F4 1000. I had to physically check the bikes to work out what was going on.

I'd be taking the gloves back!.

A, how true however in defence of the F4s traction control ability's on the road (as distinct from the track) it performed exactly as it should which is "it feels like I am running out of petrol on each right hander" and that's is how it flutters / restricts the power when there is an issue..............very well sorted

S, they are around 5 years old however have kept up the conditioner; the last couple of rides produced a fair bit of sweat however on close inspection the leather around the stitching where they have come apart looks very thin and flimsy will be sending some pics to the manufacturer and we will see what happens..........

R, if we don't get the right response from Dianese then will look at other options............
