    I had a great time too. Getting used to using the upper rev band of the CBR now. got the front wheel lifting a couple times powering out of turn 4. Had a bit more lean angle available for the corners but couldnt bring myself to use it. ahh next time.

    If anyones got pics, id love to see them. JDAS photography were there on the day but they havent put up any pics on their facebook page yet.

    Im specifically looking for the black cbr with the blue masking tape on the headlights running group 2

    Well this was my first ART day I have attended.... and as an instructor. I really enjoyed the day and chatting to a few new faces at the track. I had fun on my bike in group 4 testing the new BITUBO suspension and instructing in group 3. Well done AMCC, it was a well run event and I will be back again.

    Tyres pressures are on my mind though. ive been told around the 30 mark for front and back which seems extreme when std pressures are 36f 42R. i will lower them but prob only up to 10 -15%
    30 front and back is best.
    Higher speed creates the heat which creates the sticky.

    mine run lower than that on some days.
    Trumpydom!

    The tyres ended up about that pressure before too long on the day. The melted rubber at the edges tells me they were getting plenty warm enough!
