Count me in for a move to a warm dry climate. Living in the north west I should be used to it raining but it still depresses me particularly when London seems to be permanently in the 20s and dry.
Its definitely slippy out there but it's not leaves. Not where I am noticing it. I think it must be dampness and lower temperature making tyres less grippy

So I know its getting to the horrible time of the year when the nights draw in and the weather gets abit shite but why is it so bloody slippery, 4 times tonight coming off roundabouts and once in a straight line the rear tyre just starts spinning up, and I know what you are all thinking I must have wound it on but I really didn't I was actually trying to prevent it from doing that by being gradual and careful with throttle inputs...

My question is how many of us has had this problem
Yep, have noticed in the last couple weeks that the roads round here are greasier than usual for the time of year. It has nowt to do with leaves as there aren't any fallen yet. No mud or dead things on the road either. I reckon it is as Marino says, build up of dirt over a dry spell then not enough rain to wash away adequately. Where I live seems to have a high amount of atmospheric dust. It settles on everything. So, that and a little water = slippy roads. A mate from work came off the other day doing under 10mph on a slight corner due to a slippy surface. He was going slow enough to not get injured. hoping that the coming rain will give the roads a good wash down.
