It's certainly not forgiving if you do fall off pal, the trick is to hold on at all costs LOL
Being a passenger is great fun though, the way most riders look at is "The rider decides if you finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd - The passenger decides whether you finish"

Glad to see i am not the only adrenalin junkie on here! :thumbup:

I would love to offer to be your passenger, but i am not very aerodynamic! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: (oh and i prefer water)

It looks very cool, what kind of speeds do you avg on track then, coz they look like they are shifting? If you ever get up to my neck of the woods would love to come and watch (derbyshire/east mids)

Thanks Andy, the averaged speed over four laps on an average track is 60mph, larger tracks average at 90mph. 0-60 comes in 2.7secs 8)

That's pretty close to me when I'm not in Leeds. I might see if my brothers are interested.
