Hi I won the Silverstone Masterclass competition. I just wanted to drop you an email of thanks for an amazing day at Silverstone with Niall Mackenzie and the team.
The weather may have dampened the track but not the day. Great coaching along with a great group who turned out made it a day to remember. Even with my shockingly limited experience (I passed my test mid-November after a direct entry course and never rode a bike before that), the pace was testing, but manageable. Coaching from Andy was tailored to each person in the group of three, individually. I’m a far more confident rider and have been given some masterful techniques to make riding safer, more enjoyable and, of course, faster – especially through the bends.
The R1M was a real treat and a bike I dream of having. The endless levels of adjustment make it very manageable, and when opened up... its acceleration is beyond words! Its lean and narrow build make it feel light and nimble, plus the menus are very manageable, even for a novice like me.
Well again, thank you VERY much indeed. I plan to go back to a Silverstone track day again with friends in August.
Even went out in the wet – nails!
