    hi this may come as a shock to you but not all bikers are into racing .nothing more boring than a m,cycle gran prix in my eyes ./ m,biking is also about enjoying the fresh air . having a good time . just a short ride around the area is enough to give plenty of pleasure. the feel of the warm wind then the cold wind . smelling the air the flowers . etc. certainly not about racing round in circles . if you want to do that then speedway is far better .
    doesnt matter what size bike be it big or small its a feeling you either know or never will have . sure others have different views .

    Neat !

    Though a bit insane, it will result in some deaths, we can be sure of that.

    I'll give it a go next time I'm out.

    That's fine but look closer and you'll see this seems to be a logger. If often wander off down the back lanes then wonder exactly where I've been.

    A useful tool, not just for racing. Could be used in evidence against you though so beware.

    yes i saw that but doesnt seem important . i treat life as a big adventure . never get lost just dont know where i am .hee hee.
    still dont have sat nav so really cant see me doing this either.
    mind you could just tell your mobile phone provoider to track you. had a very interesting converstaion with my provider orange the other day . he knew where i was as i was speeking . for a laugh he told me to go som,ewhere else and ring again i did he copiuld pi point me so easily. fortunately he was an old customer ogf the garage and did it for a laugh but it does make you think . big brother. doesnt bother me but found it interesting.

    Looks like an interesting app, though I agree with Brian - trying to outdo yourself is going to lead to a bit of binning!

    For those who are interested in racing, there's an app available on the MotoGP site for keeping track of riders' times as they ride in FP, qualifying or race. Its supposedly free for Android users although, surprise surprise, my phone model doesn't support it.

    I keep in touch with what's happening on race weekends using Twitter - it really works!

    that was my thoughts as it tracks your movements on a map

    All loaded ready for my next ride, which does not seem to be any time soon having just seen the forecast.
