Woody. Of the three cams that come with the fast action kit only the most aggressive one needs any Dremmel work. The other two just slip on. You probably know this but just in case you don't. I still have only the second fastest one fitted because never got around to the Dremmel - it's still much faster than OE.

Think I have the fastest! 0.25? Bought off Klinky but not fitted yet

Well. I'm all sorted. Bike sorted, stuff packed, just hope the weather changes as it's meant to, been pissing down for two days!

Hope I can get a ride, I will try and get on first dibs with No Limits if there are cancellations. Otherwise I will just chill out and get drunk for two days and watch you all crash! Ha ha.

Well,

The time has come. I hope you guys have fun this weekend.

Remember, no passing on the inside. Or is it the outside since you drive on the wrong side of the road? I'm confused! :wink:

Klinky gets airborne over the mountain on Shadowman's SD. He was only meant to be taking it for a test ride! :D

A few pictures of a very picturesque track. Didn't track because after the 200 mile ride up to Linconshire my knee didn't feel ready for that kind of exertion but had a good two days hanging out with everyone and drinking wine. Nice to meet a load of new people as well as the regular faces. Next year.... :D

Oh! :oops: Thing is I only saw it when I got home and downloaded some GoPro footage and the quality is so bad that I cant read the name on the back of his leathers.

Great to see the SD crew again. Lydia and James couldn't have been more helpful, Geoff made a good neighbour and everybody else helped to make it a cracking weekend. Even the weather cooperated with mostly sunny and always dry.

It was good to have a chance to ride the SD having done less than 20 miles on it since getting it last year. It went well and we are bonded properly now.

Great effort by Bic to ride 200+ miles up with a still recovering knee just to mingle and soak up the atmosphere.

Looking forward to the next one already.

As an aside, I think the SD would go really well round Mallory Park. Is anybody reading interested in a day at Mallory with their SD? I will go anyway but SD company would be welcome :)

My Gopro battery broke down so I don't have any footage to post but I'm sure somebody will upload something to watch soon.

Hope the bike is soon fixed Geof

Loved it :)

Some footage from day two of the crashfest.... Mr Millar doing a bit of farming and then trying as hard as I might to evade the pesky Colonel Klinck - fast forward to 3.52 for beginning of the action as we got stuck in pit lane.... Must learn to edit! ....

When that rapid lad went past on the that new R1 it was time to try and chase him... although he was a tad too quick for me :( Damn I really really want that new R1!

Ah yes, I think I may have been missing my hoodie. I'll have a check but I don't think I've seen it since I returned. It was a bit worn out though and covered in white paint! :D

I've watched the BSB races at Cadwell Park, and it's nice to view some on board video of the track. Beautiful track and the conditions looked perfect. Thanks.

Nice. Kawasaki's "wake up call" to the rest of the litre category of the day: Sounds every time you twist that right-side tuby-thing to the stop. I always thought that particular vintage would make an entertaining street-naked platform. :D

Track is so crazy narrow, makes you wonder if knobbed tyres couldn't be used to advantage. I'm guessing that agricultural excursions are common - ?

In video and images, it looked like a nice day(s), and the track appears kind of empty. I'm sure all present had a fine time (jealous).
