    57 degrees is very impressive!!! Think I was only managing 54 or 55 at knockhill last summer. Mid 40s is the most I ever normally see on the road.

Like mentioned earlier, I don't consider myself a particularly fast rider, but do like to give it a squirt out of corners when the mood takes me.
    Fairplay, don't want you coming a cropper.

    I had the Mrs out on it this affa, and brakes feeling mush better with the extra weight. Obviously not going fast at all, but tried braking pretty hard, when the road was clear, to see what it would do. Can't say I felt any intervention from abs, but the bars on graph did show about 50%.

    All aside, apart from not having full confidence with tyres under hard braking, they now feel great to me.

    Checked pressures after a run on my own, and hot they were 36/41, after a half hour run, last 5/10 minutes of which were in slow traffic.

    57 degrees is singularly impressive, even James Haydon only managed 58 degrees which impressed him on slicks at Circuit Monteblanco Southern Spain where the track temperature would have been pretty warm!
    Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast!
