    You can see footage of me racing in the BSMA Schoolboys back in 1989 on a brand new Honda CR125 on my site. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    Paddy 362 did 1 lap noddy

    I'm surprised I managed to push the bike that far Wink

    That track was WAAAAAAY above my ability. Every time I even touched the throttle the back tyre either span completely or kicked out 90 degrees.

    Finally broke 1 of the hand guards on my umpteenth crash & jammed it in onto the throttle. Tbh tho I'd already had enuff by then.

    I could have gone round that track faster on my mountain bike ffs Embarassed
