I doubt Clake is a mate of Turnbull but I could be wrong. Turnbull is much loved by some. Maybe add a "climate change angle" and how it is good for the planet. You never know your luck with the fairies.

Sounds like a good thing to get behind, Clake products are beautifully engineered and constructed. Although I have no need for any of their riding aids, I really like their approach to business.

What they really need to offer IMO is a thumb-operated LHRB. I reckon they'd sell a million more of that product than a servo clutch kit that will struggle to retail under $1K

id be going for something like road safety, have you ever see the accountant or middle eastern druglord do a panic rear braking on his/her new Harley, nothing like MM or VR sliding in to a corner in Valencia.

yes and more yes, even an push button electric rear brake would be good, impressing the bowls ladies I still need to hit the kill button, but on a 250f still not enough compression to bring the front down fast enough

Good idea , I'm with Nutty on the thumb brake , anything else is to me not necessary or way expensive , rear thumb brake would be a game changer though .

Barry, what about this auto beast for a start?

A left index finger-operated audio mixer "fader" style clutch is my 2c..

2 guys I ride with have Clake One's. Impressive device, but not quite ready for one yet.

What do you mean exactly by that? Can't afford one.... don't want one just yet? I am even going to put One on my Guzzi.

Really? I can't see it being very easy to control a clutch, a brake and hold onto the handle bar.

I think the Clake One is a much simpler approach as far as control goes.

Pete, meaning I can operate the Brembo clutch on my bike with one finger no worries. Only go to 2 fingers when I get tired.

Roger that. Yeah - I can't operate one finger only as I have a disability. But notwithstanding that, I reckon the fact that the rest of the lever is out of the way and you can hold on with your three other fingers and thumb is just brilliant. I tried One a couple of times for a short while and wasn't too impressed at first. But once I had mine for a full day - I was sold.
