Assuming all the numbers are OK which it says it is, then yes they certainly could.

Varies, but mostly between the Jupiter and other Jupiter, but some some days, some other days, it's all a bit confusing :D

I've just booked tracktime which was about £360. Not too bad for 3 days.

Hotel showed £20 a night. But 80 with the missus. So gonna book direct.

dunno if you're on there so in case not:

I keep looking back at this ....... and its 4K i might have access to, but cant justify spending unless i end up doing a lot more track days. I did think of buying it then flogging it out again when i get back but again my head says to go with what i have, see how it goes and re assess after that.

I even looked at it with the thought of sticking a plate and daytime MOT on it but i already have a bike for work and a bike for pretty much everything else ....... dammit :mrgreen:

LOl, cheers for the offer ....... i think there might be a difference in a 13 year old, no rider modes, No TC, no ABS 750 to your latest all singing, all dancing 1000 :mrgreen:

Ridden plenty of sports bikes before as you know and a couple of GSXR's but torn between just using my Multistrada and getting something i dont really care if it goes into the kitty litter as i can fix it cheaper ....saying that a lot of the kit on that track bike is higher spec than my Ducati ...Akra system, Ohlins shock and K Tech front internals

I'll strip off the mirrors on the Ducati and play on that :thumbup:

I'm staying in both Jupiter hotels i think. 🙂 and will be flying the flag for the Yamaha tracer. 🏁

I do have sporty bike thoughts, but they pass in time. 🤔

I'm staying non-sporty. The only other bike that had potential was distinctly orange, but again, is still very much non sportsbike.

If i'm really bored when we're there i may consider jumping on a sportsbike, but i'd have to be really really bored, which is all quite weird, because i used to LOVE sportsbikes.

Dear Banky
Please lend me a bag of cash for a big fuck off fast bike so I can go round and round in circles quickly.

Nah, I'll still be there on my slow bike, so there will be at least one bike in the gang to keep you company on the straight
And we can go XSR hunting together too ;)

And was on the NL site yesterday looking at other days and noticed that this trip's showing as full now already- guess it being a UK Bank Holiday probably has a bit to do with that
