I was just thinking about you (not in a weird way) the other day! Love the MV Agusta! I was looking at those last week, I didn't realize they were so expensive! Holy cow! They only ones I found were between $22-$30k.

I may be making a thread of my own very shortly which I hope you will approve of.... (yes, that is a hint) Smiley

Not in a weird way, lol. They're not cheap but my how they bring a smile to your face. I managed to 'encourage' an AMG merc into a play on Sunday, he lasted about 5 seconds. then a guy on a Yamaha R6 tried, he failed aswell Smiley

Is the new thread up yet???

I bet! I would love to see it get on an on-ramp!

I just have a few crappy photos, and some parts are still coming in, so give me a week or two (and sorry for hijacking your thread Lam!).

Here's a first for you guys, a picture of me! Very rare. A trackday at Cadwell park.

Me on my VFR400 NC30, just fitted some new fairings with custom colour scheme.



..and another with me on my FZR400 2TK heading up 'the Mountain' at Cadwell




I had a few people comment how nice the FZR is, one chap even came through the paddock to find me and say 'that's the best sounding bike here!'. Nice praise as there were over 300 bikes, including RC30, OWO1, ZXR's, Ducatis, etc,etc

It only just got through noise testing 105db, with a little help from the noise tester who went slightly blurred vision when looking at the noise meter Wink

this is how the fast boys go over 'The Mountain' at cadwell!

Great shots, Laminator!  I thought of you and your bikes when I saw this 2009 Moto Guzzi Isle of Man Edition last week:

Is the bike a new version with a replica fairing, etc? TBH, I'd prefer the Carrera GT  Smiley

I've got a couple of videos, part two is the better of the two. I went in the novice group with a friend from work that rode the other bike ie. when I was on the FZR he took out the VFR. I'd not done a track day in many years. On trackdays we are not allowed to dive inside for an overtake going into a corner, you must go around the outside or get them on the straights (Bit hard overtaking a 750 when your on a 400).

At the beginning of Vid 2 I'm stuck behind an RD350 for half a lap, I get past him around the outside on the last corner (Barn), then half way around lap 2 I caught up with a Kwak, got past him at Barn as well, etc

looks like a lot of fun! I wish I had more time on break to watch the videos, but I can do that later, looking forward to watching.
