Real sorry to hear about your fall Matt, but glad you weren't hurt; the bike didn't fare that bad either. Looking forward to seeing you winning soon.

Ok a little update....

About a week before my first race i had a day at Oulton Park, on the last session and with 2 laps left a complete fool decided to attempt an undertake on me this happened on the approach to Island Bend, the fastest part of the track. At this point my data logga is telling me I'm doing 135mph and banked to my left. The fool panics as he draws level with me and grabs a hand full of front break. When i saw his hand i knew what was coming.

This was the result.





So I've had no choice but to put my racing off now till next year as my race budget was spent getting the bike back on track...

Ive not let this put me off and went back out to Oulton Park last week and even managed to knock a further 2 seconds off my lap times, sadly my bike is in Stealth mode, this is the only pic i have for now..

Onwards and upwards

PS

My new helmet and leathers were also destroyed so I'm back with my old leathers and helmet...

The new year and season are upon us and I'm hoping for a little more luck this year than last...

Just returned from Spain where we spent 4 days pre-season testing on the Cartagena Circuit, fantastic circuit and great for blowing the cobwebs off...
