Enjoyed watching that nice video.

Crikey that track is twisty. See what you mean you need a rhythm and to flow as you exit one corner you are entering the next.

Frankie was on day three towards the end. I just started to get a flow. I could have / should have pushed pasted the zx10 much sooner but I wanted to give him max room.

Yes it's a tight track I actually really like it but it took some getting used to.

Regarding which bike it's tough the rs was fun but it would have been far easier on the 675. I need to increase corner entry speed to get the best out of me and that bike. Was a fantastic time and as you can see you get plenty of free track

The track was a bit quite as a few had packed up and i dont think the event was full. However it's not busy by any standards and you get ALOT of free track
