I pull back into the pits and am welcomed
by Jo, who seems keen to hear my excited
babbling about gingerly piloting the bike
around the track. “How was it? How’d it go?”, Jo
was sincerely interested in what I thought.
If you never get to ride such a bike,

showroom floor. And rejoice knowing there
is a small percentage of humans out there
capable of riding them to their limits and

A heap of thank you’s to the Falzon family and
the Jon Daniels Racing Team for allowing me
to ‘test’ their race bike. And a man hug for
Boris for making it happen.
