Who else got out for an isolation ride this weekend? I saw a pic on the news of a load of bikers clogging up a cafe near Matlock - that's not quite the idea I got out today - and after a winter and having been away, it's actually the first time it's been dry enough I could ride the 'new' SP properly and with the quiet roads could actually give it some oomph. Bloody hell it's quick! Obviously my RR6 is quick too - but because the throttle on that is linear it's less surprising as you twist more or get into the higher revs. The digital brain on the SP which flattens the curve means when you actually do hit party time it's quite alarming! Was having a gentle play with a 'busa on the way back into London, until a knobber on a 2002 R1 in jeans and trainers, tiny numberplate, (both) knees flapping like a frog (in a straight line).... you know the type - SQUID... came hooning round the outside on a corner on the A41 and I thought... I'll let him add to the country's rocketing mortality rate all by himself.
