    Wicked JR, looks like you were giving it a right handful, especially considering it was pretty damp!

    Cadwell has got to be one of my favourite tracks, top is of course Brands Hatch but Cadwell is a close second. The mountain is cool even though I cant wheelie for toffee..
    I used to love Barn as so many people hold off the gas thinking they will highside out, which one of my mates did, banged his head and forgot the whole incident! As long as you are smooth there was a lot of grip and you need to be hard onit for a good drive down the back straight!
    The gooseneck was always fun as you'd see people gas too hard out of chris curve and then run over the grass at the gooseneck!

    Since moving here (NYC) I have hardly ridden let alone done a track day. I never realsied how good we have it in the UK! Living in London I had Brands and Lydden on my doorstep and then a couple of hours gets you to loads of other tracks.
    Here its a long drive to find one track!!

        That's Dale Lomas, who now writes for Performance Bike, on the Bros. I've ridden that bike (in it's pre 700 days ). Pretty sure the bloke who now owns it lives near where I work ...

          Cadwell to me is the best track in the uk by far !!!!!!!

          it's been changed over the years for safety for the superbike boys but still a awsome track

          Here's a clip of my recent race there and managed to bag the win on last lap......yee haa

            wow, that Bros of yours has some serious oumph. 180km/pu at 7000rpm

            awsome vid
            What was the start of all this?
            When did the cogs of my Hawk begin to turn?
            Perhaps it is impossible to grasp the answer now,
            from deep within the flow of time...

            But, for a certainty, back then,
            I loved it so much, yet hated so many.
            I hurt others and was hurt myself...

            Yet even then, I rode like the wind,
            whilst my laughter echoed
            under cerulean skies...

              By the way Fandango do you still live in Wokingham?

                  My hawk does 80mph at 5000rpm (stock) in top gear thats about 160kph right so is it that peppy? Or should we be talking about how quickly it moves through the power band because all of these engine mods everyone is talking about dont increase top speed(you have to stroke the motor to do that).

                      Fandango,
                      I sent you a couple of Private messages last year as I was working down in Wokingham, near the "Molly Millers" watering hole.

                      If you ever do a track day/race down at Brands let me know, I'm only 2 miles away.

                      Got myself an exhaust from Rod also but still not made my mind up on what silencer to use. What type exit to you go for?
