Shocked
well that was an 'interesting' ride home! on the little bike at the moment as the car gone for repair, it's only a mile to work and getting there was fine, but bloody hell, is there a knack to riding in this wind?! sent me across the road, into curbs, and nearly into cars (parked) all luckily as there was no other traffic around me lol just looked at my weather station and gusting to 60+mph at the moment so i reckon i did well to stay upright lol now i just need to tease the thong out of the arse Embarassed Shocked Shocked Very Happy

Plan well ahead, suss out which way the wind is coming from.
Watch out for gaps in buildings and trees - you will get wellied at these places. Look at other vehicles (especially high-sided ones) for clues.

As the gust picks up - lean into it. Exactly the same as you would when walking. In a constantly stiff breeze you can find yourself travelling in a straight line up the road whilst being heeled over at a permanent 30 degree angle! Shocked

As you feel the gust drop - ease back upright. Otherwise you'll drop into which ever way you were leaning. Exactly the same as you would when walking.

Or leave the bike at home - that's what I do! Laughing
