Chasing down a Ducati on the track last week. And he has almost twice the power I have!
Most of you won't care too much about my motorcycle antics - that's why I try to keep most of it over on my motorcycle account @meantimemotorcycles
Check it out if you feel like it.
Riding a motorcycle doesn’t call to everyone. It carries a level of risk that is anathema to most. And it demands a level of competence, a degree of engagement that is unusual in today's society. Like an old craft, the skills and the wisdom necessary to be successful at it don't come quickly, but emerge only slowly, over time. Most people today simply don't have the patience or the inclination to deal with that sort of thing.
But for those of us who do, to that tiny minority who are drawn to it, the rewards are immeasureable. For us, riding imbues life itself with color, tinges it with adventure. It connects us to a time when people weren't perhaps quite so shy about how they lived. A time when everything wasn't a careful, exacting calculus of risk and reward. A bolder time when a fear of getting hurt didn't stand as an impenetrable shield to the simple enjoyment of life.
So, yeah, those of us who ride are deffinitely different. But it's a good difference. We carry something that once was common but now is rare. Something of the distilled essence of what got us all here.
We are the last wolves, in a land of sheep. #londonbikers#snetterton300#trackdayjunkies#yamaha#yamahar6#wearebackwheel#lovelife#bikers#motorbikes#borntoride
Some pics from the final round of the #caterhamacademy Championship at Silverstone courtesy of top man and photographer Jon Bryant @snappyracers Can’t wait to be back next year fighting for the 270r Championship! 🏎.
Final championship round of Morgan challenge complete. Nearly won the overall championship, finishing P3 4 points off 1st, but came home with P1 and P2 in class. Had an early finish in the final race of the day due to a spin on a patch of oil causing damage to the car. Good season on the whole being head data engineer. One more round at Angelsey for the Race of Remeberance before the season is finished. #uwracing#racingwolves#snetterton300#wlvmog#morganmotorcompany
Snetterton was epic! Last track day of the year, didn’t do bad getting 3 done in 2 months at the end of the season. Lots more next year and the GSXR is going to have a trackbike makeover! Watch this space! 😏😏😏
