Pics and vids please for us poor wage slaves, big fat juicy ones with expensive kit being ridden hard, fast and to the edge of its capability to remind us how good it can be on track! 8)

At least 1, your airline didn’t go bust yesterday, and , 2, your airline didn’t cancel the flight as there was no pilot available.

Not sure about the route home yet though.....

Have fun guys and stay safe. B*st*rds.

Quick update, Sunny and warm.
That is all... 8)



Day one was a good day of trying to remember where to go, spent a lot of time getting all the corners wrong, tipping in too early, out with instructor tomorrow am to get a heads up on some line, I really would like to do a sub two mins.
Fitted a new rear (scrub) so hopefully this will help in achieving the objective.

Rockets bike is lovely, smells great, sound a great....looks great. (y)


This track is a lot of fun, much better on my 600 than the RR last time, so hopefully today I can better myself, and for once in my life I am actually using my sliders lol.... there is no rest though you are constantly moving around, the only straight is the start finish, and that's over in a flash.

Another good day today, not bettered my time yesterday, but pretty consistent, 2 02 and 03.
Stuck a scrub on and I found to be bloody horrible, could not do anything and got a really nasty slide, well it felt a lot bigger than it actually was I am sure lol.... but all the same time to change it. Plus it was a 190 and my bike has 180
New rubber, new feeling, spot on very happy.

jake the instructor pulled me round late on in the afternoon, hangling off as if I was about to drop off lol....sliding my knee a bit more as well... who knew lol. Tryouts MGM to get me sub 2.00 maybe tomorrow ;)
Ready for bed now, totally knackered, oh yeah I though I saw a rat on track, turns out the guy in my garage ran over a lizard.....

Day three tomorrow, liking this three days :) Cartagena really is an engaging track, not rest, mess a corner up, and you have most likely messed up the next few.
Roll on day three. :)

Time for |-)

What a fantastic time ... First day on track was a bit of an eye opener. The track is quite technical and you are in one corner straight into the next. So I struggled a bit as if you made an error or off line in corner it had a knock on effect for the next 2-3 corners. I don't think it helped taking the rs250 I've not had a lot of time on the bike and you have to really put some faith in the front end leaning and griping. As you don't have the power to tighten up the line. Day 2 was better I had got 2/3 of the circuit and could put a bit of a lap together. I was still using bigger bike lines and bogging a little in a couple of corner. Day 3 I got an instructor to take me out I had been with one on day 1 but I think the lines he showed me were ok but they were not making the best use out of my bike. So he took me round and showed me some different lines and things clicked. I'm not saying I was lightening fast but it was a start and I could put a good lap together with out bogging and it felt smooth. It has been a fantastic time and can not wait till the next one. The bike performed brilliantly I'm so pleased to say how much I've changed it works the forks do need some work as the front end felt too hard and did not give loads of feel. The track is hard to learn but is very rewarding and I would definitely go back. It as great to see Frankie his gsxr sounds awesome and he looked like he was flying from day 1. Got a few videos which ill try and up load ..
"80mph" sorry officer I possibly could not have done that I'm no Valentino Rossi.
