feck me, there's a few corners by my house that you can't not cock the back wheel while going around. You do need to turn in quickly - try it in a car park, you may also be doing it and not realise. It doesn't feel much different anyway.

Thinking about if you near brum, go on the a38 north towards lichfield - the new roundabout they've put in for the M6 toll road are belters for this.....

Sharp yank on the wheel does it nicely. Roundabouts on national limit dual carriageways are favourite on public roads (all done safely of course, ahem)

Mate of mine trying in vain to keep up in his Alfa commented on the tripod nature when I really chucked it in...

No offence intended, I just can't resist a cheap gag. :)

It's hardly rocket science though is it!
