Re: Happy Birthday Balky001

Thanks for the birthday wishes. It's the big 5 0 so feeling a bit old today!

Re: The trackday thread.

Great vids lads, just shows how the bikes have to be ridden differently. There's always seems to be a cheeky so&so that shoots up the inside when you are being considerate on overtakes!!!

Re: Cadwell Park 30th/31st August 2016

RH, did you sort out your plans for this, you going to the BSB?

I'm planning on turning up on 30th late afternoon/evening but would be good to say hi on 30th if you are going to be there.

Re: Cadwell Park 30th/31st August 2016

I'm there on 31st only now. I swapped for a day at Snetterton which was a wash out. Not very clever!I might come up on 30th though!

Re: Top Gear is back

What about Tiff Needell. He was funny and could drive. Also Jason Plato and Vicki-Butler Henderson. I'm sure it would work :p:D

Re: Top Gear is back

I agree BB, although the 'specials' did bring a different dynamic which attracted a lot of new viewers over the years. My wife for instance, has no interest in the latest AMG but really liked the...

Re: Top Gear is back

I only saw a few minutes of this series but Evans voice was awful. He's much better geeking off on TFI Friday than trying to review a car. Also, very difficult not to sound like Clarkson when using a...

Re: The trackday thread.

It was too wet for the tyres I had and they had sold out of wets! I've done Snetterton a few times before, old layout and this one. It's a great track now and trickier than it used to be.

Re: FTR Suspension Setup 40

Cheers Patrick. I've always used MCT in Stowmarket but it's a bit of a pain as they only do Monday to Friday and so it is a day off work. Might look FTR up for a refresh

Re: Films I've watched recently...

I watched Raging Bull the other night. Gritty, simple but a fantastic film. Made in 1980 but set in 40's/50's. B&W too just adds to the atmosphere
