Ledborough lane beaconsfield, first speed bump. Westbound

Hi. Please can you remove the first westbound speed bump on Ledborough Lane, Beaconsfield off the A355 as it is a hazard and redundant as a speed calming device. I ride a motorbike and as i turn off the A355 into Ledborough it is a large hazard. (A) hitting the bump while still leaning around the corner firstly make the bike unstable and secondly greatly increases the lean angle which is dangerous when wet and (B) by avoiding the bump it forces me into the space between the two bumps which is dangerously slippy with leaves in autumn. As a bike leans to corner the lights are facing off to the side so it's not even possible to see the bump or leaves. I have had two dangerous moments since the clocks went back. Given the proximity of the bump to the junction the bump is largely irrelevant as it's not possible to have got to anywhere near the speed limit in the distance. Thanks
