On the way back me and the Honda X11 did a short naughty drag race.
The old honda is a beast of a naked with its 116Nm torque and 140hp and it was of course quicker in the end, but its rider was impressed and surprised he had to pull it open all the way to get in front of the little 675 streety (68Nm and 105hp)....Boys and their toys...

He did give you a chance by fitting the big black air brake to the back of his bike.......maybe your chin needs to get onto your tank  :007:

I finally rode home (350 km) with my leaky fork seal (left side).

Mainly on the freeway and at a low, constant but reasonable speed (90-100 kph) to avoid excessive forks movements.

I stopped many times to checked the suspension and the brakes but it leaked less while riding than while parked (maybe there was no oil left ?!)

Anyway... Next step is now the seal replacement in 15 days.

Oh, by the way, I almost did the 350 km with the full tank but I refueled just in case... I think the bike could have reached 320 km but I did not take the chance to know  :008:

Would you really do 320km with a full tank....
My reserve light usually goes on at around 210km. I have no idea how far I would get from there because I always tank it asap.

Further than I get mine over - Great photo! - First time I've enjoyed Donington. 1st visit on my orginal ST RS, I was the Slowest of the slow! 2nd time on the Ducati Diavel. Well...I was on a Ducati Diavel!
This time. Much better. still slow! But not the slowest! hah




Nice one buddy!

I have prob done 12 track days on the RS and only now moved into Group B (did Snetterton yesterday) When I brought the RS i was adamant i would do at lest one trackday. I didn't want to be "that guy" who has a bike for the track but never tracked it!  Now as I'm a bit of a trackday junkie gonna buy a track bike and of course I'm going to go for the Daytona! The RS is a really good bike and atm don't think ill ever sell it but now I'm getting faster want something a little cheaper for when, by choice honest, i throw it down the track lol.
Diavel Nice! i remember my first trackday a guy had a Rocket 3 he had so much toque he would leave me out of the corners then i catch up then repeat lol.

Just rode my Triumph for the first time since February, having ridden hundreds of miles on my ZX10r since the lockdown ended.

I forgot two things:

1) first gear is very very low on the '09 Streets.

2) the clutch doesn't have the back torque limiter that my Kwak does.

Oops.

Entering a roundabout in spirited manner, I went down one gear too many and the rear wheel locked and came round rather violently, just as I leant left quite hard. I so nearly came off, but fortunately I spent a few years riding two strokes and my left hand reacted instinctively all by itself (well done left hand, have a sweetie or something). I suspect I've actually hurt my neck due to tensing up and pooping my pants 🤣😂🤣. I'm so happy I stayed on!

What a fun bike though, and it feels much lighter than the ZX10 now (which in theory it is by about 40lbs), but it just needs a bit more 'go' in a few places, some of the time. I don't know if I'll ever be able to sell it as it's well and truly under my skin now!
