    Who says the spa is only for women? Very therapeutic. I'm not sure why we need to put salad on our faces, it makes a mess of the HMD! Oh well, when in Rome.

    Is there some special trick combination of tyre pressure, camber and toe that I'm missing? :D Something that gains a second or two???

    My tune didnt save unfortuately. I remember adding camber up front to about -1.4, toe in up front, I think it came to about -0.1, brought rear toe out a little to 0.2 and I think I added 1 or 2 psi in the rear. Other than that I was just trying to find the line that works for this car and trying to trail brake/throttle as smooth as possible. Really wish I took a picture of it, sorry.

    Yes, there is. It might ruin your immersion though so it's up to you whether you try it.

    Try the bumper camera. The one where you can't see any part of the car at all.

    Just do one lap. You'll know whether you like it once you're at Les Combes .

    I would never make a comment on your skill level. That would be rude and I've never seen you ride. I have no doubt you're better than I am, because I know I'm not too good.

    Let me tell you a story. I was out a few weeks ago. I come up to a junction, almost stop but no traffic is coming. I'm turning right, I look where I'm going and let the clutch out.

    For whatever reason I haven't given it enough revs. I stall the engine. I've already got it well cranked over though and am not fast or strong enough to hold up the 280kg on my right leg.

    I go down like a sack of potatoes. It's the slowest crash in history so there's no damage but I'm now like a beached turtle in the middle of a potentially live lane of traffic.

    Beyond embarrassed I leap up and pick up the bike. In my panic though I have forgotten to put the side stand down first.

    I'm now stood on the right side of the bike ( the stand is on the left) trying to swing my left leg over an 880mm high seat in full gear whilst holding the bars.

    My 46 year old body doesn't want to play. I'm now compounding my shame by cocking up my leg but being unable to get it over.

    I'm still stood in a potentially live lane. I do not want to be here. I pull the clutch and push her over to the grass verge.

    I hold the bike with my right hand, lean over the seat and manage to reach the side stand with my left hand and flick it down. She can now stand up on her own.

    Ruefully I survey the damage. There's some paint missing on the end of right bar and a tiny mark on the rear set footpeg . Even the exhaust is completely untouched. 2 minutes with a black touch up will sort it. I'm lucky.

    Where I'm really lucky though is that there's a blind crest about 150 yards away from that junction. This is out in the Yorkshire Dales , a rural area where bikers and drivers like to play. But for the Grace of God someone could have come over that brow at 90mph and then it's Goodnight Vienna.

    I was fortunate. My punishment fit my crime.

    In so many motorcycle accidents the penalty far exceeds the offence.

    So no, I would never judge you. I only advise you to maximise your experience, to do the additional rider training if at all possible. It just might save your life.

    @moodyryder
    My bad. I was only being sarcastic with my mention. I do appreciate the sentiment and the story though! 280kg ain't no joke for sure! Main thing is you walked away with just some scratches to the bike and that things didn't turn out for the worst. I forgot to mention about stalling myself that past night turning out my street (before I went bananas traveling those 76 miles or so). Wasn't on my best game that night outside of speeding, I suppose. Hopefully I can get the charging system fixed soon and not have to resort to carrying one of those portable battery packs with the jumper clamps around. As of now, if I stall on the other side of the island and the battery's drained it's "good game" to me! But yeah, I'll be watching videos and searching up parking lots or safe areas to practice dropping the knee down, swerving (or slaloms), and quick braking to name a few. Maybe later on or with a different bike I can think about getting the front wheel up (for feel and reference).

    As for this challenge, I'm feeling the burn of procrastination. An issue arose with one of the breaker switches for our house, so no power for the time being. Looking forward to the next challenge nonetheless!

    OK so the salad has helped slightly, I put some lettuce around the steering wheel and a bit of cucumber on top of my monitor, seems to be quite relaxing.
    Not sure I can find much more than another 0.4-0.5 without some sort of miracle though :)

    You should be able to find a few tenths if you put the cucumber slices on your eyes and wrap a towel around your head. I'm still not sure if I should put my tin foil hat on before or after the towel though, I'm not much of a setup guy so I'll leave it to the experts to answer that one.
