Spent a cold day at Mallory yesterday. All went well, with bike and boy performing well. With occasional snow falling, and ornamental simians in cast alloy seeking the services of brazers, we couldn't keep any heat in the slicks, so like everyone on the 450s we resorted to the mega-soft wets. We wrecked them, obviously, but last years wets are pretty disposable!
Anyway, boy was under instructions to build it up gradually, and to keep his head - which he needed to do with many wobbly new folk doing their license on the track!
Anyway - he and bike performed very well indeed.
