Since then I have gone from a 38 rear to a 41.
Should be good for short courses. Had my suspension "sorted" lately by UK Suspension - no track days since then.
Still a little chicken since the big off in late August so I am not so Teflon coated after all!
IOM TT - 3 days!
Can't boooming wait for the DSC track day. May sit out the first session to let the testosterone settle down!
That is exactly what I was hoping for too. Now I am going to tail you around as you're just a second or two faster than I so if I can tag along for the ride! I wonder if anyone will catch Chillo. What he'll be like on his R is anyones guess! No gravel rashes please.
Mood: Channel Swim is now a (bad) memory not a dream
Had a fantastic day at Cadwell yesterday in the summer sunshine - I now have nice white lines along my face where my shades go. Was on the CB5 but my tyre was spinning up too much to be safe as it looks near slick on the right. Had a go on my mates bog standard CBR600 and managed 1.43 Would have been better if the brakes worked - nearly **** myself every time coming into Park - stop stop stop no please I really mean it this time, STOP. Fantastic fun though, amazing handling for a stock CBR, I'm seriously considering getting one for the track. I reckon with decent brakes and another couple of sessions I'd be under 1.40, which considering the best I ever did on my 748 was about 1.50 is going some. Racing this year has helped me to get faster mind. Still can't believe my time mind you - I'm sooo pleased with it - another 20s a lap and I'll be up to Hislops time!!!!! Too much respect to put into words.
WJB make that down to Hislop's time. circuit times so far on a 916 Strada are
