    It's £99 and on a Friday so more of a chance of getting a cheeky day off! I'm going with the GoPro this time as I forgot it last time.

    Details on the No Limits website.

    It's honestly the best place to test your limits and the bikes if that what you want to do. No place on a public road for riding like that. I still see it sometimes though.

    Thankfully hardly any damage to the bike and I've got a couple of bruises where the bike fell on me. Lucky.

    I'm very glad to hear the damage is only slight - to man and mount.

    Great vid robin, it was making me want to find some leathers so I could do a couple of laps, it looked great. To be able to take a corner how you want without some knucklehead coming the other way must be great, shame about the slide but hopefully all will be right soon

    Almost all sorted now. Engine case filled and painted, bar end mirror replaced, levers replaced and belly pan prepped for when I can find a supplier of phantom black!!!
    At least I can ride it though.

    Ah yes , the lovely Edwinas , I got airlifted to Leicester royal infirmary from Edwinas in 2003 after highsiding coming out the right hander & then getting cleaned up by the following pack of 600's (I was in 4th at the time & there was 30 chasing lol) - had to be resuscitated first so was pretty lucky really . Bloody Edwinas , it only got put in because someone in the BSB made a mess of themselves at the lake esses & they thought the chicane would slow people down - needless to say there's been 10 times as many crashes there since

    As above I was clearly very fortunate. My wife's uncle Alan who used to race in the CMRC on Norton, Triumph etc has since told me its the most dangerous circuit in the country with more deaths per mile than the isle of Man races!
    Thanks for that uncle Alan. Too bloody late to tell me that!

    I wouldn't call it a dangerous track myself as its very wide & not very technical , but that in itself is probably why there are so many crashes there , because it's easy to go fast very quickly & a lot of first timers there think they've learnt it after just a few laps & then get caught out by the off camber at devils elbow or one or two of the other dodgy bits . Having raced at Olivers Mount , Isle of Man & Northwest 200 though , they are really dangerous circuits , but riders do tend to respect them & always err on the side of caution , because if you don't there's only one place you'll end up
