Loving the summer evenings  :002:



Agreed, fab pic, looks like some fine weather forecast this week as well, best we make the most of it now eh? 

Yesterday a few of us ventured down south to Loomies in Hampshire and Ryka's cafes , was really surprised to see the police stopping riders with dark visors on the premises , they had a kit as well to test how much light the visors blocked...was a perfect sunny day as well.

Could have been much more worthwhile things to do IMHO...

Anyway, was a great day for a ride out, my friend was on his new (to him) R1200, lovely thing and surprisingly brisk.

I often ride past loomies, so many great roads in the area.  I don't ever stop there anymore though, loads of Police at weekends at the cafe and surrounding roads at weekends.  I got pulled over nearby for having a illegal exhaust and no number plate late last year, except they pulled over the wrong group, it was the idoit half a mile ahead of us  :138:

Thanks podders!!

The day started a bit rough but turned out special. I just couldn't seem to tell the story without violating that "one picture, one story" rule :430:. I hope there's forgiveness on the site....

Did my first track day at Mallory Park last week. Was just taking a pic when James Whitham wandered past. Great day out.




And video.

Fab..great way to end your week.my friend was there on his Pepsi schemed RGV500 hybrid, think he had some issues with that thou...

I always wanted to ask James what he thought to the S1000R as he does some laps of th circuits for BSB television.

Podders has already broken the rules so you might as well follow suit and get the rest of the photos posted .  :129:

Got the s1000r this year after 14 years on ninja's , really struggled to adapt to a different style of bike and riding . Watched a video on YouTube by a guy called motojitsu about body positioning and it changed everything 😀 all the bad habits I had after so long on sportsbikes blown away , this is the ride where me and my bike finally clicked and I just love her now 😊😊😊

Get yourself booked on to a James Whitham track training day if you can.

Being videod from the chase instructor (who are predominantly current BSB and TT riders) and being able to analyse my riding style and body position helped me refine my style and speed significantly along with the tuition given by them throughout the day.
