Relaxing Ride- No clocks.

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by bigwheels, May 18, 2016.

  1. One of my favourite ways to ride is too cover up the speedo/tacho/ clock etc......... and just ride! I`m always surprised how much time we spend looking for information instead of watching the road. Without the distractions I can just enjoy the ride and the road and come home a lot lore relaxed.
    Great for roads well know

  2. Good point

    You can also come home a few dollars poorer due to speeding fines........

  3. I like this 'at one with the motorcycle' riding style but must agree with GeorgeOGeorgeO as I need the reminder to slow down otherwise I will get in the zone and speed will continue to creep up.

  4. Yes, pays to pick your day/time/place carefully. Even just getting rid of all the clocks/watches helps. Lovely to ride all day without the concept of time interfering.

  6. I wouldn't find it very relaxing not knowing my speed. But then I'm in Victoria.
