    It was quite distressing. I also get the feeling he'd be on his arse if it wasn't for the electronics of the beemer.

    If you can afford an s1000rr then you can afford to spend half that on a different bike instead and then use the remaining cash you've just saved on track days!

    Ah, the old "Ride like it's a track day and hope other road users stay out of my way" concept.

    Knew a few people who thought this was an acceptable idea. None of them are with us anymore.

    This particular throbber is going to cause a multi fatality crash and some poor copper is going to have to break the bad news to at least 2 families.

    I thought I'd try out a gimbal on my bike:

    Quite a lot to pay for something that doesn't seem to work quite right!

    Luckily I didn't pay for it.

    The view is nice but it's a massive pain. It will be great for off the bike filming though.

    All the gimbal videos I've watched never vibrated as much, maybe its faulty?

    I learned how to corner first without sliding across the saddle sticking my leg out, I moved my upper body into the corner with the bike. Once I was confident and started to corner at higher speeds I started to slowly position my body, but without sticking my knee out.

    He's great. I've arranged with the main dude from Gizmag to come and stay with me in Switzerland next year as it happens :)
