I don't ride on the UK roads (unless going / returning from abroad). First MV 4 months ago, first new bike in 30 years (and it's done 6K already - I've only ridden it 5 times). I do Nurburgring 2 to 3 times a year, plus a handful of European trackdays (not riding out, bike gets transported out for us). The current squeeze is too small to ride the F3, so she has thought about a dragster to ride, but doesnt have a bike at the moment.
Wow!! Nice way to enjoy motorbikes. Im another big fan of Nürburgring. I was there in 2012 with my R1200S (3 laps, one wet, very very dangerouse wet lap in motorbike), and past year with a Kawasaki H2 (ten laps). I expect come back next year if it is possible.

How many laps did you go in Nürburgring? What is your best lap? I´m curoius. Your pic it´s amazing!! I did 9`17`` with the H2, but that bike is a beast, and easy to ride with all electronic controls.

Thanks Dariete, it's an awsome place. I bet the H2 was good round there, I think it would do well seeing how bumpy it is - the F3 was getting kicked all over the place. 9 min 17 is a good time with so few under your belt, that's a decent time.

When I stopped racing in 2004, trackdays were ok but I then discovered the Nurburgring...I've done over 1000 laps there, most weekends I do 30 to 40 laps when I'm there. Fallen off once, luckily not badly. Picked quite a few up over the years though. Dry or wet, I'll still lap but is very slippery in the wet.

I'm sub 8 round there, but only just. It's hard to bring it down any further without the safety net kicking in - I'm not into chasing lap times nowadays (I was 10 years ago), priorities change and now I enjoy the ride round and social side more than knocking 5 seconds off my lap time. I'm not one for videoing myself (Kodak courage kicks in with me....), but below is a 8 min 18 trying to tow a friend round in under 8 minutes - he's on the Ducati, I'm on the GSXR infront. I'm also showboating in the video with the wheelies and sparky knee sliders, so apex's are out of the window.....enjoy.

Wow!!! Nice video, thanks for sharing. I love the wheelie of the 4:55 hahaha.

Your time is, really fast, congrats!! I totally understand the difficult to improve it with safety. We do that for fun, not for earn money, we have to keep calm when we are riding the bike and remember it.

Thanks for sharing your Nürburgring experience, I suppouse that the F3 is not the best bike for that track. If I going to go there next year, probably take the Hayabusa, not the Brutale. Is not the track to stiff bikes.

When flicking through this thread, I noticed that the advertisement down the side was from Age UK offering quality stairlifts ! Surely this can't be a coincidence ?

Well I will be turning the big 40 at the end of the month and through out my years on this Pale Blue Dot I have never found anything that has gotten me closer to a Zen like state...

Motorcycles are truly addicting. Rather its the sound, the wind, the sense of being one with the road, environment, hell even yourself...
There's just something (that I have a hard time finding the correct words to describe) about the freedom/feeling I get from them.

I am now on my third bike and looking towards the next one to get...
