    It's funny how my vein is popping out huh
    No idea what camera the trackphotographers use, but I'm sure they have some fancy lenses

    By the way, I'm coming to the UK in September together with my boyfriend to do some trackdays there. We'll do Silverstone, Cadwell and perhaps Oulton Park. We first wanted to do Donington, but it got cancelled by Hottrax

    When I know more I'll post a thread about it in the open forum

    Thanks guys

    Yes indeed, he's a genuine track-addict and even races this year
    And he's got an '01 RSV !
    I don't think I could have a bf who isn't into bikes, because it's sooooooo great to share the same passion..

    Here he is at Silverstone last summer:

    There's such a striking difference between the two of us riding (nearly) the same bike.. I look so tiny !!! Oh well.. I'm 5'8 and he's 6'5.. it's bound to be different.

    My bf just read this thread with a smile

    Nice move comparing him to Xaus, it's the only Spanish guy he loves


    I agree we make a good couple, but we're not the marrying kind.
    I never wanted to anyway
    We're moving in together in October, so that'll be a first big step

    I can't help but feel sorry for your wife though! "Walking is a trial for her"??!! , auwtch !!!!!!!

    Pumpkin - great pics, nice style too. Know what you mean about thinking you're doing it fine and then the photos tell otherwise
    I've notdone a track day, but recently attended an advanced skills course, where the instructor showed us how to ride corners by putting weight forward and to the side, whilst hanging off. My how he laughed when we all went out to try the technique, as, like you, we all THOUGHT we were doing it, but actually weren't (he demonstrated how much we were hanging off/positioning body etc, and we all laughed too )
    Mind you, I don't think we looked as stylish as you & your man. I like Ruben too by the way, he kinda reminds me of Kevin Shwantz, who I used to love watching - such entertainment both of them !!!
    Keep on tracking, and I hope you have a ball over here in the UK on your hols. I'd definitely recommend doing Oulton Park. It' s the closest to me, and my wife & I have been a fair few times to watch BSB & Touring cars. It's a brilliant and technical track, set in wonderfull contryside, you'd have a blast I'm sure. I would suggest joining you for that day, but I don't have any leathers (shocking I know, but being an all year round commuter have had to spend my reddies on textile stuff). Must get some soon though as a track day would be great fun I'm sure.
    By the way, when you're over here, try some of the delicious roads around Shropshire & Wales, but do them early morning when no one is about - you & your loved one (and yer man ) will need nothing else but a good hearty breakfast to make a perfect morning together.
    Cheers, and congrats on the wedding fnar fnar
