    Thanks again! I do believe I could find 10 seconds I just need to go back again :D It's difficult to really know what you can do better when you're going around as it all happens so fast and you don't really have time to process it, by the time you get back to that same point you've forgotten what you wanted to do better (for me anyway).

    I also think the -1/+2 conversion for the R6 wasn't such a great idea for Silverstone, felt like it was running out of drive going down the straight, I could almost keep up with the 1000's coming out of turns but they would pull away after that. Best take a range of sprockets next time :p

    Once you start lowing the gearing it's a slippery slope to 1000cc ownership :D

    Haha tell me about it, the thought had crossed my mind once or twice. Nearly sold the R6 earlier in the year for an S1000RR but I managed to stop myself for the time being :p

    First time back on track after my broken collarbone and off. So its new bike (far to expensive) and it took me until the last 2 sessions to settle in and begin to feel comfortable. In other words, not really relaxed, far to apprehensive about the bike and me. I just lost concentration and not looking where i wanted to go. Great day though

    (sorry about the quality its a cheap aldi camera and didnt really set it well, still not bad for £30)

    But how not to take Park corner at Cadwell.

    Cannot help but think that second dog video is both unlucky and a show of poor riding. As far as I can see the horn came on as some kind of a solution....the brakes came on when he realised it was not working. I'm not sure he would have been able to stop in time had he braked earlier but it certainly looks like the bike continues at the same RPM/Speed for more than it needed to.

    Well, About actually confirms that if you expand into the English bit

    I'm always curious as to why peoples first reaction is to beep rather than brake. Happens everywhere it seems.
