Default Re: Snetterton 300 - 13th July

L3nny's 400 has got me nervous about whether the blade will break down so I've done the sensible thing and booked a hire van so I can take the sv as well. This should guarantee that the blade runs perfectly. It also comes with added browny points as I can get a few bits the other half wants from Ikea on Sunday.

Ha, don't blame me!

Is it a 929 you have? That's got FI so your carbs aren't going to fall apart like on my bike.

I wouldn't be overly worried about the tyres not being up to the job or suiting the bike. Ron Haslam's race school used the T30 (the replacement for the 023) on their bikes. Here's avideo of him using the BT-023 when that came out:

There's a whole lot of people reckon you need properly sticky tyres to do track days but I used to grind the pegs on my ZX6R out using Diablo stradas which are a fair bit older tech than the 023. If they're in decent nick they'll be fine.

Well that weather forecast went downhill since yesterday! See you tomorrow with waterproofs, I'll be on the blade with black race plastics.

I don't do wet track riding so you'll probably find me sat in the garages all day.

Ah, wet UK track days, don't you just love them.

I can see why most of the TD riders I meet on Euro TDs don't bother with the UK, so hit and miss.

Lenny, put the kettle on and I'll pop over for a cuppa
