    Booked an overnighter to do Anglesey with a few guys through NoLimits on Sept 13th @ £109.
    I'm in the Middle group as i've never been before.

    RAF Valley "Just up the road from Ty Croes circuit" are having a Charity Track Day around their airfield 14th and 15th September, £75 single day or £120 whole weekend, might be worth having a day on the airfield with them Muffking, good fun and a great bunch of lads, real lads/friendly meet. Did one with them in July but sadly can't do the September dates :-(

    Good shout. I'd struggle to convince the guys I'm going with though as we all goosed a set of tyres at our local airfield riding day. It turns out that runways are very abrasive :eek:

    Runway at Valley was re-surfaced 1 year ago and I had no problems with mine after 6 session, plus they has tyre support there too.

    To be fair I've only got the one at RAF Waddington to go by. I enjoyed it, but the guys I went with said they wouldn't go again.

    Just got back from Anglesey.
    What a great track and equally as great views. On some parts of the track it's hard to take your eye off the amazing views. Plus the track itself is grippy as feck and you can really push the the bike on the exit whilst leaned over.

    These are the sort of views on the way to Anglesey.

    And this is the view from the pit wall.

    I'd heard that the track was coastal, but I didn't realise that a detour in the wrong place could see you in the drink.

    Anyway, this was our garage:-
    5 bikes between 4 of us, including my Blade and CB500.

    I'll check out the videos tomorrow, but there was only one real drama. I let one of the guys borrow my CB500 and he rolled it at Rocket.
    Thankfully he's ok, but the bike needs a bit of work.
    Generator cover holed, engine case protector broken off/missing, handle bars bent, tank damaged, tail fairing damaged, exhaust damaged, swing arm damaged.

    Glad you enjoyed yourself at my local track #Muffking, it is a great track to ride with some challenging off camber corner and if they ever do a track day on the coastal course the cork screw section is great fun but bloody tiring on a 1000cc bike.

    Yeah I can imagine. I did a couple of sessions on the CB500. I only filmed one of them, but I'm just uploading it now.
