After having done Mallory and Cadwell a few times, nobody pointed out that they are "slow" tracks - Silvers GP feels wider than the new section of the M25 and is bloody quick! And more fun than £105 should buy
I spent the morning learning the track and inflating my nads. The afternoon was excellent - was passing instead of getting passed in the novices (will do inters next time). I had the suspension dialed in, in the morning and the bike was faultless all day. I think I have short knees though :dowhattinyUK said:meant to ask... how did you get on? :devious
the instuctors want to follow you just to listen to how good your bike sounds... :hail :hail :laughfriday said:I thought I was hanging off, but as Saffie put it, I'm probably doing a Bayliss around the tank - I did get a touch going into the complex once, but only very briefly. Maybe I should get some fat wet weather sliders?
The 2CT's performed very well all day and didn't misbehave once - I even used the whole front tyre
The pipe sounds good on the road, and absolutely mental on the track - I had an instructor follow me for a few laps just to listen to it. Best sounding pipe I've heard.
how about this then: we had to wait until 10am to start..? And had to ride through lunch to make up the lost time! Feeling any better? :deviousPosh Johnny said:You're not doing anything to ease my jealousy Et :rant
Glad you had a good day, I enjoyed Silverstone too, was it scary getting on the power on the start finish straight, I always felt the bike would drift left off the camber nearly throwing you on the grass :scared
Like you say it is nice and wide, plenty of room to hide my/our ineptitude
Bud, if that's the case then it's definitely just body positioning. Otherwise we can lay you on the ground with a rope to your wrists and Yogi's bike and a rope from your ankles to my bike. Que doughnuts and voila - longer legs!!! :laughfriday said:The 2CT's performed very well all day and didn't misbehave once - I even used the whole front tyre
