    ...your tyres won't be quite as warm as you've been used to through summer, so give them a couple of corners to get a bit of heat in them before hooking in to the first roundabout. This doesn't mean you need to chuck tyre warmers on before leaving for work every morning.

    ...your bike isn't starting because the battery that has been working fine up until now, but was actually pretty borderline, has given up the ghost with the drop in temperatures. Try giving it a charge and if that doesn't help then buy a new one. If that doesn't help then go here

    ...you've checked your oil and there was this white frothy stuff on the filler cap. This is perfectly normal and is just from condensation in the gearbox, usually when you've been doing a lot of short rides. Go for a long ride and burn it off if it worries you.
