Re: Buying an R3 v3.. kind of

I also lost a rear bumper reflector on the way home any idea where I can get one of these from? :( Another quirk I found is that it doesn't like to eat CDs, it half eats them and then spits them back out!

There'll be plenty of passenger rides available. Welcome to sit in mine though it almost certainly won't be the fastest ride.

If you select a photo on Flickr (from a full size computer anyway) there should be a down pointing arrow in the bottom right corner that lets you pick a resolution to download?

Re: RRP Gauge kit - Group Buy

Carl, I was going to say with the R3 idea you showed in another thread, you could shift the USB sockets to the left of both gauges so any cables don't obstruct the view?

I found, in those conditions, I mostly still had to feather the accelerator out of the hairpin in 2nd in the R3 otherwise the backend would twitch and catch itself

Re: ^^^TRACKDAY, Mallory – Saturday 9th November @ SOLD OUT^^^

okay - apparently my entire footage from Mallory is a shade over two hours long, stitched together. Sure I can trim a good chunk out of that from the pit and paddock outs and ins, and there's probably some audio from me that nobody needs to hear!

Nigel, did you know you were responsible for nudging the cones out of place along the gravel trap after "Devil's Elbow?" I was sitting in Haydn's passenger seat as we followed you around the track and watched you skim down the edge of the kerb and shunt them back a couple of feet. Don't think you to...

Re: R3 oil usage query

Don't have a basis for comparison, but I'd say my R3 maybe needs 500ml after 8-10 full fills (if that). Or about that much after 20 minutes of hard driving round Mallory...
