So I have finally done it!

Thanks for the advice all.

Having not been riding that long I decided to go for the on track experience with the CBR500.

Can't wait. Next Wednesday is the day!

I can see that happening.
All I've been doing lately is watching films about riding;
- why we ride
- faster
- fastest
- road
- TT3D

Any other films people recommend. I've just ordered hitting the apex

Not sure why I didn't post straight after the track day but I absolutely loved it!

Was only the on track experience but really enjoyed it. I found the time in the paddock with the instructor really useful. Annoyingly I managed to get me knee down here but not on the track :(
We did a bit of slow speed manoeuvring practice and then cornering technique and braking.

Would highly recommend this to anyone.

All I want to do now is get back on the track. Trying to work out the best next move.... I'm thinking get a full set of leather for Xmas, I wear textiles currently. Get some more crash protection (currently have bobbins and cotton reels) and then next year have a go at brands hatch novice group as its only 40 minutes away. What do you think??

Where did you do it PAH? I've only done Donnington but I loved it, I want to try brands hatch too, but I think I'll do Silverstone next.

Add rear sets to that list of add ons though mate, I caught pegs a few times and was definitely limiting me trying to hang with track toys.

I've got a Yamaha R6 for the track now, can pick up a very cheap track toy if you're going to get into it! Street triple is just too nice to crash, even with protection, it'll be stuffed if you flip it in the litter!!

Morning ORINJ I have just realised I didn't say. I went to donnington and did it with the Ron haslam school.

Ah ok thanks for the advice I'll look out for a rear set.

I would love to get a track toy but at the moment I don't have the money nor somewhere to store it.

Damaging the str is the thing I am worry about if I were to use it on the track.
