  • There but for the grace of god go I

    Just read some of the latest news about Richard Hammond. Identify a lot as a father myself with the pain he must of felt when he saw his two daughters crying when they left his bed side :?

    Can't say I have ever done 300 mph, but sometimes I feel uncomfortable considering a Thorney Motorsport Stage 3.

    Am I overly sensitive? Should I feel guilty :?

    Above all. I'm glad to see him making what appears to be such a good recovery

    Can't helping thinking how close that Scottish guy in his Arden Blue VXR came to disaster. Hope he got his replacement

      Over sensitive ? yes & no....

      Although speed is generally illegal in this country, it is desirable, so dont feel guilty

      Just make sure that when your pushing it in the vxr that it's safe to do so..
      If in doubt - try a trackday.

      (and make sure you have insurance ! )
      tuner talk: "Just get out and drive the damn things !!!"
      The truth is out there ...

          dont think ive heard this story - what happened?

          Fastest speed ive done is around 180mph on a friends GSXR1000, it felt fine, stable, calm... but i would travel at those speeds all the time, im more interested in acceloration than top end.

              thats too fast for my liking things just happen too quick and i find other road uses on the hole are not that good at juging speed so can pull out on u, even on mways.
