    I was doing big wheelies over the Mountain in practice & on the warm up lap, but honestly was trying not to do it during the race as it means you can't keep it pinned or you will flip it, clearly it didn't work for me as the big Ape loves a wheelie!

    Wowzer! That's a fantastastic photo, Billy! :grinning: Most certainly destined as a poster for a special place on your wall.

    You could always blame the wheelies on the bike. ;)

    Two solutions to the wheelie problem over the mountain, either get on the gas sooner and get the back wheel off the ground or as soon as you hit the crest knock it up a cog.

    Stung a bit :D Fortunately it was on the last lap of the last session, so I got my monies worth... and was a hire bike! :D
    I was in the Royal Navy at the time, so got proper good live in physio at RAF Headley Court for 2 lots of 3 week sessions, came out of there fitter than I have ever been. Was on another trackday at Brands Hatch before I was back at work... The dr said riding a motorbike would be good physio and exercise providing it wasn't to big a bike... a GSX-R750 is only little right? :D hahaha
