    Solution for a hard to unlock seat mechanism?

    it can also be opened from underneath if the lock is very tight. I usually spray it with some lube / ACF50 once open to prevent it jamming

    Technology - thoughts on Autonomous vehicles

    I can't wait for the days of self driving cars. Then I can just kick back and read a book whilst my car does the hard work.

    BT-010 discontinued, now what?

    go for a sport-touring tyre, something like a BT-023 or a Michelin Pilot Road 4 If the compound is similar you shouldn't have any issues. I currently have a PR4 on the front and a BT023 on the rear.

    I got my dainese jacket replaced just shy of its 2yr warranty as the front pocket zips were a bit broken (though they still kept stuff dry). Got a like for like replacement with another 2yr warranty :) Shows that it pays to ask if you get any problems down the line, and don't lose your receipts!

    Textile jackets

    i was able to negotiate a bit of a discount (~15%) in the Dainese store and got them to throw in a back protector in for free. Might be worth a shot, especially with end of season stuff.
