I have not been riding for long (8 months) and was hoping for some enlightenment as to how riders deal with tar (Joel I think thatâ€™s what it is, but you are the road surface guru) sealed cracks on fast bends. I live three suburbs away from the Old Pacific Highway in Sydney, great road but its full of these patch up seals. Many corners consist of nothing but a web of these. Donâ€™t get me wrong itâ€™s a great road, but even when taking it at a nice leisurely cruising pace the rear wheel of the bike feels totally detached as it slides and hops over these seals. Going slower does not really decrease this. Does everyone get this feeling? Is it just a matter of overcoming it? Better tires? More lean/less? Psychological barrier more then anything else due to the lack of faith in my ride (its had too many problems for me to ever trust it) When getting back onto normal straight roads I still feel uneasy, the swingarm still feels loose. Like ice skating for a while then getting onto a normal surface and your feet still wanting to, well â€œskateâ€. Probably comes with more road experience but just want everyoneâ€™s take on this.
