Well it seems i was lucky enough to get a track day in before lock down. Actually think it might have been the last one that No Limits managed to do. As usual managed to do the usual videos and also have done a vlog to see if I can bore the life out of people

Really seemed to connect with Donington this time round and the track seemed really flowing. It was only my 2nd time at the track and i was on a brand new hire bike (the Kawasaki 636) so decided to drop down to Inters. This was a mistake as was zooming past everybody by the 2nd session. So should have gone in Fast group. On the 3rd session managed a 1:52 and was doing anything between a 1:52 and 2:00 laps depending on traffic and enthusiasm levels.

As we are all locked in at him check out these vids (there way more interesting than TV)

Session 1 = https://youtu.be/pldtKN2oN2U
Session 2 = https://youtu.be/UEyAwy5OlZI
Session 3 = https://youtu.be/bquCjIR-AcU
Session 4 = https://youtu.be/SZQJGxkQ-RM
Session 5 = https://youtu.be/E5xz4_SG1So

Session 6 and 7 currently uploading and will be online by tomorrow and also need to get the vlog uploaded will post up the links once they are up on youtube......

enjoy :ymhug: #:-s :D B-)

I do like to fully immerse people into my videos and despite my exciting music, you wouldn't be the first person in the world to tell me that there a bit boring or that Disneyland/ theme parks and Tracks days don't really mix as a you tube channel but hey its what i do so why not :ymhug:

and just for you guys
and because i had some free time last night I also made this one just for you

Decided to buy some photos of the day as was impressed with the results. Not so sure about the green Kawasaki bike, the Blue and white (Suzuki) leathers but happy with photos and actually for once actually looked like i knew what i was doing.
