I booked this today in the novice group. Not ridden there before but I suspect the lack of power will show on those long straights...

I'll look out for you.

You riding an SV? The old track was mostly about the speed but not so much now. It is a great track though and you should enjoy it

Yep, I'll be on a tatty silver SK3 with lights and stock can, I should be easy to spot quietly going backwards on the straights!

Yes, but round the corners the Sv is more than capable.

I've embarrassed a few bigger bikes there, especially where the rider isn't capable of using the horsepower, most just use it on the straights, but anyone can do that.

Its a great track

I was a bit tentative on this session as a guy had fallen off in front of me in the previous session,which was a bit unnerving,

Yeah it will be fine - one thing I like about the SV is that if I pass someone on a sports bike I'm the better rider, but when they pass me it's because their bike is faster!

I've erm err kind of erm accidentally sort of kind of by mistake just bought a blade. So I might be a bit quicker on the straights, but will be embarrassed by the SVs on the bends. Or I might be swearing loudly in the paddock and kicking it when I find out why it was cheap, 200 miles from home and wishing I'd taken the sv!

Probably not with the bt023s it came on, "sports tourer" printed on the sidewalls doesn't inspire confidence but I've not got the budget to replace them yet. I'm sure they'll be fine at the speed I go round corners.
