Track days are where you're supposed to crash.

Curvy's are too rare and cool to be crashed now. Pointies are everywhere, being binned left right and centre.

Keep up the good work RavingDavis.

Mike: See you at Mallory.

Thing is you can tell when a pointy model's been crashed...

If anything a good pavement interface improves the looks of the curvey...

Cheeky! Curvy's are much better looking. Fact. They crash much less. Fact.
