NB..you're a star mate...what a positive attitude!

You deserve a break and I reckon that'll come when you get the bike sorted. It's a learning curve and you're well up the  slope dude and doubt you'll make the same mistake twice!  I made mine at 90mph and didn't get off so lucky (broken bits on me and destroyed bike), but straight back on the bike is the best medicine Wink

That's a compliment (I think) ?  Wink

Well I'm old enough to be sensible about it I guess,no thoughts of squeezing into small gaps up the inside, just out to have a spirited ride in a safe environment.

Thanks for the kind comments guys, really appreciate it, the bike is being repaired at the moment, new clip on, panels, lights have all been removed, brembo RCS radial master cylinder and radial ohlins forks and radial calipers going on too!

New tow bar just been fitted, new trailer coming next week, it's all GO!

Cracking video, looked like you were having a ball out there Nickyboii, for the first 7 minutes anyway. Hope the bike gets sorted quickly.

The track is shot to pieces there, caused by the cars. It's right on the line you want to take. You have to go either side of it until they repair it.

I love Snetterton, even after I highsided at turn 1 early this year and broke my back in 5 places :)

I used the insurance money to by a Mille, hence why I'm here lol

Mate, I really wouldn't advise towing with the Mille, get a Goldwing instead.

He's fitted a towbar to one of those choochoo trains he drives (maybe Mille crashing directly relates to choochoo's running on time ?).....probably find its all Akro'd up as well !!.

Cheers Matey, funny you should say that, it's being painted black and yellow Hehee!

Not sure on big bore I think 128hp is enough for me, gonna spend my dollar on better brakes and suspension
