We all well say all, almost all spent the evening at Brands Hatch pretending to be racers at Club MSV trackday. What started off as a great evening sooned turned into a series of mishaps all now laughable I might add. After noise testing with a baffle in my exhaust I thought no one would notice if I removed it before doing the sighting laps as the bike is quite restricted with it in and being an old V-Twin I need all the power I can get. Unfortunately after lining up for the sighting laps the organisers decided to check to see whether the baffles were still installed I thought they would never remember which bikes were fitted as there were over 60 in attendence that day,, I was wrong they didnt have to ...just look at the big B that was written on the front of my bike which I had failed to spot,,,IDIOT oh well had to come in after the sighting laps and fit,, that resulted in losing precious track time BUGGER..

On to the second session I thought great, time to get some quality time this to was soon halted on the second lap after our good friend not mentioning any names... GRAVEL RALPH... thought he would test the grip of his road tyres in the kitty litter luckily he and the bike were ok just resulting in a couple of scratches and hurt pride especially after telling me for the last hour how he was going to taking it easy and it was his birthday and yes you might think he is young but infact it was his 66 birthday! Unfortunately track time was halted as Ralphs bike was recovered.

On to the third session thought great hopefully we will get along ok this time but within minutes someone decided to take a detour across the grass .. think he was busting for the toilet and wondered whether there would be a portaloo in the woods he was mistaken if only he had taken the long way round he would of found one instead he found MUD-SKY -MUD-SKY-GRAVEL and a few bruises along the way,,but again the stranger was ok and will live to tell of his extra little trip... Track time halted again B^LL&CKS!

The final session of the day what could go wrong well alot sods law a generator bolt could shear off in my engine and lock it solid,, so could not go out all I could do was wish for another day bring on the good weather,, next month hopefully Snetterton at least in the last 3 times I have been there everything has been perfect!
