Totally agree Baldy however in the rare chance you breakdown or come off the bike it would then put others at risk or take them away from other stuff they could be doing. Chances am you could go out have a great ride and no harm to anyone. However..............

Sorry, have tried to upload a photo, but have been told it exceeds the limit, not sure why. My bike ( and my riding) was not exceptional, but I enjoyed myself! I started with a Weslake, which developed a weird problem, then switched to a new Jawa engine, Jawa 2 speed gearbox and a Godden frame, was having fun, then lost my job, (sounds familiar), not ridden since!

You did more than most on here Ray :t: I ride big cc road bikes, but had a go on a mates speedway bike in a near by field.. Did a start and crapped myself.It was the no brake thing that got me.

I remember a good grasser, Dave Holman, who started grass tracking later in life and did quite well. He put it down to riding big road bikes, before grass tracking!

I flat tracked with Dave (assume it's the same one) until he packed it in a couple of years ago, we were of similar ability and progressed through to the Pro's almost together so had some good races,think he is doing MX now.

This is my first ever flat track race, I'd had one go on the bike beforehand :rolleyes: you can see I am learning each lap. Dave Holman is the guy who won the race and went on to win the Restricted class Championship that year, it was close on the line, neither of us was sure who won at the time. So there I was thinking how I was Billy Big balls nearly winning against the fastest guy in the group, went out in the next race and broke my Tibia and Fibula and messed the ligaments up a fair bit. Back to earth with a bump - literally :D
