brilliant!, thanks for this!
Not putting miles on your Laverda is like not having sex with your girl friend so she'll be more desirable to her next boy friend.

Well your V4 sounds beautiful - difficult to gauge how fast you were going  ! Dave looked pretty smooth

The Honda does 1:30 laps of Donington (15 seconds slower than the lap record!)

Dave is always smooth and always has the right line.

Cheers Gareth, my real name is Fitzpatrick, I can use Fitzgerald as my film name if you prefer

Can't wait for Lydden now, see if I can get the title wrapped up there

Just finishing the revised brackets etc after the fairing mounts fiasco at Donny

The RC sounds excellent, we are very lucky lads

See you at weekend
Cheers Dave Fitz'

Hi Adam, the normal way of judging that is by measuring how long it takes to get round 🙂.  In this case about 1 minute 41 seconds..
