Inters - first one of the year, so entry speed will need improving typically. This is the one area I notice is really different between Inters and Fast - later braking and faster entry and takes me time to get there, cos I'm old and slow!

Keep me posted

Cheers

Mark

Get yourself booked in fella - Cadwell is the best track in the country and your 675 will be great there.

In which case I don'l blame you.

I've got an old pair of Frank Thomas leathers somewhere I think which you can have - 5' 11" c.13st - not modern but they'd get you on track.

Can't break my self-imposed limit of "no track days before April" - ten years ago I was champing at the bit to get out on my freshly-purchased ex-Vivaldi British Superstock ZX-10R and I eagerly went to Cadwell for a Saturday event (about the 18th I think it was). It was busy, but chilly all day, never got above about 4°C and after having dozens of trips there, and hundreds of laps without incident, I crashed twice that day :oops: the first being losing the front end tipping into Charlies - minor damage that was patched up in time to re-join in the afternoon. The second one happened at the Gooseneck, full left lean, just a whiff of throttle to drive through and she spun up and lowsided - not so bad in itself, but while skidding over the grass she dug in and barrel-rolled, obligingly destroying the tank, seat and fairing, plus bending a good few other bits. I was using ReceTecs and warmers, but after leaving the paddock with hot tyres, they were stone cold after 6 laps of brisk riding, the track surface was just a huge heat sink, sucking all the heat out of them. I wasn't alone, bikes were going down like skittles all day, despite it being dry. In hindsight I'd have been better off wrecking a pair of wets rather than a set of bodywork and other sticky-out bits :roll:
I know that this date is only just before April, and with any luck you'll get away with it. At this time of year it's likely to be wet or cold, possibly both, rarely neither. fingers crossed that you have fun and keep things rubber-side down 8)
Wheelies - they ARE big, and they ARE clever....

Wise words and if it's mid teens plus I'll play - if it's 4 degrees I'll not.

How was Cadwell? I decided to do Bedford last minute as its now on my doorstep. Decent track albeit flat but plenty of SuperDuke moments.

Very cold and wet so I rode the sighting laps with wheelspin on the straights and went home around 11:00 as it didn't look like drying out.

I hope those that remained stayed upright as there were a few skittled on the day...

Glad I picked Bedford then! It was dry albeit the track was damp to start with. Not damp enough to warrant changing the wheels so went out on slicks.

Any other days planned?
