My other passion is bikes I have my old 1200 bandit (Bob Farnem tuned ) winter bike 

My triumph Speed triple also tuned by Bob but that might be going as Ive never felt completely happy with it despite improvements.

My 750 Gixer track bike still ridden on the road and my totally mad ZX10 2016 track bike tuned by MSS which is road legal still but only works on the road.

May be we should have a UKV track day this summer?

I'd come last given my present ride, but would at least manage the trip there and back with a grin on my face. :)

I've often toyed with the idea of doing a track day, but to be honest I really don't want to wreck my bike, and as you get older you don't bounce and recover quite as well

I’m 43, and bounce better than I ever did! I think I’ve fallen at every uk track at one point or other, just don’t get into motocross.

I'm 57 didn't do my first one until I was 54 but I'm really aware this coming season of my mortality and brake ability as it were.its the only thing that I've got that generates loads of adrenaline so on balance I know I'm going to enjoy it but wind my neck in a bit this year! It has maid me much more sensible on the roads as ican push it in relative safety on the track.i run the front of inters or middle of fast group at Brands on both circuits but way off the pace of the race boys.

Im hopefully doing another trip to Italy this summer that's a different type of riding but very rewarding after a long stint.

You can hire bikes for the day. The likes of the ‘small boys bike hire’ is very reasonably priced and you don’t have to bother with anything other than turning up.
