Evening Dave,
I'm a newbie too.
You mustn't be a million miles away from my favourite track, Cadwell Park, nr Louth.
Is that your boxster in the background too? Rare in white.

Hmmm tempting, how much are you after? and you wouldn't have a couple of mirrors or covers in the same colour would you?

Ooh!
M3 front end would look ace!

Dave - You've got bigger balls than me going round there on a bike! I've actually just given up biking and had a big clearout. Would be lying if I said I didn't miss them but I suddenly developed a fear of coming off. Comes with settling down I suppose, and thinking back to all the lucky escapes...

What is it you ride? I take it you follow Moto GP? I'm not a blinkered Rossi fan-boy but I am a massive fan! I hope he gets it together for next season.

been a few years since i did a track day (Im 46 now and lost the urge) i ride a Honda Blackbird, a 1200 Bandit and a montessa 348cota(but not at the same time)!!
I know what you mean about thinking back at the near misses but lifes too short and I know I couldn't be without a bike for too long.
Rossi's the man and always will be, peed myself when the winging aussie reconed his ambitioned outweighed his ability when he overtook him a little agressively!!!!

Haha! Yep that race was epic.
Laughed all the way through it. Stoner left standing at the side as Rossi rode off into the distance.
I went off Stoner quite early on. He can ride a bike mind but, I can't stand him personality wise.

yeah as a racer I have to admire him but as a person hes a prat and throws his dummy out far too soon if things arn't going his way.
Met rossi at a Honda uk track day many a year ago(when he was riding the Honda 1000 gp bike) and he was riding a bloody 1800 goldwing around donnington faster than any of us thought possible, pretty much wrecked the whole lower part of the wing though where he was scraping it on every corner. The blokes a legend.:thumbsup

Haha! Great stuff!
I've still never actually been to a moto gp meeting. I need to do it before Rossi retires or I'll be kicking myself.
