Had a really good day out at Silverstone today with R6don, JimboK4, Mikkie and Chappers. It was a bit cold and slippery first thing with a few small slides but come the afternoon when the track was dry it was really good fun!! Thanks to Chappers for suggesting/ bullying us into going and also to Scotty and Gerry for being pit bitches :)

Great to see the first WB track dayers out at Silverstone today.

First one of the year and cold and damp for most of the day but they all had a good day.

Please to say only a few fallers during the day, but I counted all our men out and counted them all back again ;)

Not to unhappy I wasnít out there with them I must admit, but made me look forward to Brands in a few weeks even more.

Well done chaps [smiley=thumbup.gif]

Good day out in the end, everyone finished the day in one piece, not too many toys needed putting back in the various prams ;D I have many photos, been through them and edited out the **** ones where the camera decided to focus on the fence rather than the bike, or when panning and hitting the shutter the subject was neatly bisected by a sodding fence post (prominent fences being something to endure at Silverstone) When I get the time I'll post up a few and burn a CD for the guys to pass around and copy.
Roll on Brands, 31 days and counting 8-) 8-)

Had a great time from start to finish. My bike is now on route back and i will be investigating the problem! All in all, a cracking day on track...( upto 10,000 revs anyway)! :)

Great couple of beers the evening before. ;)

Any pictures would be great, Cheers for coming along guys :)

Well, better late than never... I actually ran off a couple of hundred and they gradually improved as I got used to the camera and finally found a spot where I wasn't shooting through a bloody fence! Here are a few...

All the pics look great :)
Thanks Scotty / Gerry much appreciated.
I think I would have stayed in the cafe drinking tea rather than
Hiking round a circuit on a cold day :)
