So the Gixxer has passed its MOT, I'm trying to source a decent trailer then need to get some 1-piece leathers and I'll be starting to book up some track days. 

Anyone else got any planned this year? Any ideas on good tracks to do outside of the usual MSV ones I've pretty much all done?

Can't help you here. I haven't really looked into any. I'll be waking the gixxer up from hibernation, over the next few days. Itching to get out. I planning on going out sunday, but they're now forecasting rain. . . 

 What one- pieces you looking at?

Got mine out yesterday for the MOT, my God it's a fantastic machine - really cannot wait to get it on track. I just cannot get used to how high it revs, even when gunning it I realised I was changing up at about 10k, when it still has another 6k to go. Ridiculous. 

No idea about the leathers, won't be buying new so I'll see what Essex Bikers Centre have in that'll fit.

I had that for the first few days of riding mine. I felt like I was thrashing it, but realised I was shifting at about 9k. You really can Rev the ball bags of them. 

 Have you set the light, on the dash,  up. That indicates when to shift?

Nope, never noticed that. I only really ride when it's sunny though, so not sure how easily I'd see it.

Just checked the manual, apparently it can be set manually and disabled, so not impossible that it's not even turned on. Might have a play with that, but I already have one new toy turning up today, more info to follow...

You get about 5 sessions owain they run 5-8 but only run 2 groups novice/inters inters/fast, snetterton cost £39 which is a bit of a bargain I think.

Makes sense if you live local I guess, I'm not close enough to any tracks to make it worth the trek for an evening.

That is true however they trackday company does the day aswell so you could book the day and evening and make a huge day of it! Might be knackered by then though.

Heh, that's an idea. Bet I'd be pretty dead on the bike though, maybe if you had a car and a couple of mates. But I have neither of those things.
