Ride. Saturday midday at twelve, meet in front of uni gym. Head out to sh16 and cruise for a while? I'm keen, breakaway is down. Learner friendly but all are welcome. If enough bikers show can split into two groups, one to go ahead at the faster pace and one to go slow with the noobs lol. Soooo who's keen? I'm getting my indicators installed at nine am tomorrow morning *yay they finally arrived*. You down jafa? Ragingrob you keen to join and do some raging round some backroads lol and yeah i can't think of any more lame puns.

were you outside the gym or up the hill and across the road at the architecture school? - there seems to be confusion about what "outside the gym" means

I think you were at the wrong place r6forlife lol Rob was already there an di followed isaac in at twelve, amit popped in just after us and then stephen. You couldn't have missed a jolly group of guys like us! We left at twelve forty cos i checked the time. You can't miss stephens neon orange tl :p Was a great ride! I learnt a lot about cornering and my confidence with corners is growing, in fact i'm positively loving corners...feels good when you get a good line and can flow through the corner. :D

It's always good to go at your own pace and get that cornering nice and smooth. Could see you and Rob getting smoother and smoother at it as we went, Rob had a couple of moments of unsureness but stuck to the advice given (started to stand up when a tight left hander went further than he expected, but then leant back over and kept going) Pace started to quicken a bit near the end.

Yeah cheers for today everyone it was exactly the practice I need, haven't done many twisties and I think I was making it hard for myself on my bike by picking bad lines and not flowing through the corner. By end I'd noticed a good difference in my cornering and was happy with myself, although I was pretty exhausted and had a sore upper half, gotta HTFU :Punk:.

I think I was a pretty apprehensive with my bike at first on it's ability to hold those corners etc but I realised it's fine as and wouldn't slip out or anything unless I was going nuts.

Will definitely try to make the next one!

Rob.
