miles away! I'd be too knackered to ride a cbr600 after riding that far!

Keen on a brands track day though...

Do Lydden! It's virtually a mirror of Brands Indy and less money!

Yea, lydden dosnt look to far away actually, and might be less daunting without paddock hill bend

Maybe I'l give it a go there and learn a few things before I take on a more difficult place...

...but will someone come and hold my hand while I wobble round?

Well Weazelz and myself have already signed up. I think Enzyme and possibly Blue_SV650S will as well - Plus the more the merrier! Not sure what group they'll stick us in - couldn't specify of the phone, but most likely be in novice, with weazelz in inters.

My friend has just done level 1 at the Califonia Superbike School and highly recommends it. They do a fair bit in the classroom, but it is by no means boring, and then you go straight out on the track and practise what they just tought you. They do this throughout the course of the day on different aspects of cornering techniques.

They run at Silverstone (£319) and Rockingham (£369), my friend stuck his name on the cancelation list and got £20 knocked off i think...

I'm planning on attending one in the near future, just got to try and get the day off work.

I did the Premier course (CBR600RR) Last June was so good I cant describe it. You only get three lots of 15 mins tho but the "inbetween" tutorials were fantastic (be ready to have your riding style ripped to pieces) and overall im a much more confident rider now. I thought I was going pretty fast round craner curves til Ron blasted past me on a blade.

Well out of 10 i'd give it 10, and ive booked an Elite course (telemetry fitted blade) on June 5th counting the mins! There is a chance my instructor will be Liam!

Ill not go too deep in to the details about my day there in case of boring you but if theres anything I can help with just ask away! But book it and go! NOW!

heres the bikes:

I'll check for lyyden in around august time; I might even drag my dad and his mates up aswell! I cant sign up for anything now with exams approaching, but the thought is there in my mind and half of me wants to have a go.

But I will be pitifull, and wobble around worse than a novice on his first CBT.

What am I letting myself in for
