    Not bad for a road bike hey?
    Just got s1000. Interested to see if i can match it
    Lap record is 1:24 by Byrne, I assume you race if you can do 1:34's! If not you could and should!

    That looked fun. I do like the idea of rolling starts, saves on the clutch i guess

    No i dont race. I know i should have raced but im 40 now and never had the oppourtunity when i was younger. I just like trackdays as theres no pressure. The thing that puts me off racing is the people who think they are marquez and smash it up the inside all the time. I dont wanna get hurt

    a mere sprog ! Only reason I tried racing late (very late) in life is I never had the chance when I was younger. Had to tick that box

    Alex, the gap between pics 1 and 2 is me with heart in mouth as you stepped that rear end out coming out of clarke onto brabhams. Cookin.
    No joke, the only other person doing that was Mr BSB (I took a look at his Tyco, he was lording it in there. Big fish, small pond). OK, not as fast as him, but hats off for balls.
    The GP circuit is scary fast going into clarke.

    Sitting here looking at these pictures, it strikes me that this would be a great way to study ones technique. It's simple to do in photoshop. With a high res SLR camera on a stand you could get a really good feedback on where one could improve. Obviously depends where you could stand to take pics tho...

    Cheers for popping over Hugh, and taking some pics/video.

    Had a great day, lots of good practice with the new suspension, brakes, cipons/throttle.

    The 16/46t gearing is too much for Brands, one of the reasons it was looking lairy out of Clarke and down Brabham. The most lairy was out of Dingle Dell, last session, proper sphincter tightener as I tapped the power in the corner exit. Deffo left a dark on the track, and my pants!

    Following Keith for many laps was great, appreciate him taking the time to drag me around. Very smooth lines. The RSV4 does corner beautifully, and sound pretty sweet too.

    Got some work to do on the suspension setup, based on these tyre pics. Note the back side of the tread has been ripped away...the lhs being worst as it was the cold side.
