My first visit to motoGP race and Cal Crutchlow #35 was superhuman. Riding from last with a fractured ankle he came 6th and earned applause every time he came around. The photo above is at Stowe corner on the way to Vale.
I will continue to wear his #35 polo with pride!

I love reading other peoples working processes.
Watch Rossi driving a car – a big deal if you know Rossi!
I just got a new set of tyres for the bike and my impression after a mere 6 miles is that it now feels like a completely different bike.
This is the first time that I have had new tyres on the same bike, as I traded the last bike before they were too gone.
The steering immediately felt different, initially I am putting this down to having the correct tyre pressure! There is def increased height at the front now which I wasn’t used to and couldn’t get a feeling in roundabouts but the last mile felt comfy.
I inherited a square rear tyre (caused by lack of turning and mainly motorway miles says the fitter) which always made leaning strange when hitting the edge of the tyre. Under acceleration I can feel the improvement to grip (experts may laugh at this notion) as the bike was quicker through the first two gears.
I am amazed at just how different the bike feels already and will be assuming fresh tyres is a good thing!
How long will they last? note to self, you are on 21K the day they were fitted.
TT3D is a great film. Well shot and put together with a good dose of humour and reality.
Hats off to any racer and doubly so for any road racer.
Last week we had a few days planned up North in Whitby and I didn’t need more than a seconds thought to take the bike.
It was a great ride up with a highlight of crossing the Humber Bridge and enjoying the trip over the Moors (A169).
My GPS device, igotu worked a treat and now I can add ride data to my holiday collection with memories, photos and….trip data haha – very happy.
Oh and Whitby was worth visiting for a few days least I forget the reason for my trip and the food, particularly the sausages at Bothams was a welcome distraction from the pub.
