Sage advice indeed! I'm frankly appalled at the state of the roads around Manchester. The ZT-T has pretty firm suspension and I'm in the process of looking for a replacement as I can't stand it any more. I'm either bouncing around over bumps or finding it impossible to get any power through the front wheels. It's no suprise to me that I now know of several people, including me, who's road springs have broken - a problem I didn't even know happened until recently. What the hell do we pay our road tax for?
