I may be able to make it for photos of 'manning the fcuk up'.
Only 20mins from Silverstone so just depends if I'm busy with work or not.

Pete Wileman has a photo of me at the Melbourne Loop with another bike behind me. I have my knee down he doesn't but the lean angle is almost identical.

Looking at it my upper body and head nees to be lower but you can see what I have said previously about bringing your outside elbow onto the tank moving your body position compared to the fella behind me.

Not a million miles away! If you can get to Silverstone for some pics that would be awsome.

Will see what I can do. At least with silverstone I can travel around to any point on track on my bike. I marshal there and know my way around.

Thats as clear an indication you will see that it's mostly about body position, the guy behind you is all "screwed up" and even looks "uncomfortable"

Its a lot cheaper to get yourself zinging around a large clear roundabout 30 times on the trot. Thats how most people learn, no??!!

(I did - 1996, zxr400, round and round and round and round, then scraaaaaaaaape - job done).

All the KD roundabouts I learned on up this way now have traffic lights on them, CCTV over looking them or both :(
