    Nice one, fun track too. Where's the gravel rash from?

    Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    Great track indeed, short but very technical. Luis Salom (Moto2) showed us how to tackle it.

    The rash was caused by missing my braking point, decided to go straight ahead and ended in the gravel. Minor damage to the fairings and my ego

    Very Very nice riding--- You look like you are having fun out there!!!!! Great to see many of you are thrashing your bikes. There is such a great feel about the 888 when on the track.

    I tracked all of my 888's since '96 and they are way way fun and friendly to ride.

    I would love to see more track pictures from forum members. I really like the video's from you guys who are riding the TT's- just fantastic you putting these bike out there .





    My avatar is from 1996 --- we rode with our butts off the seat back then .

    Now I ride a bit different on a salvaged D16--- old dog newer tricks----

    Not to highjack- I have said before that I believe that the D16 is the true heir of the 888 Corse so perhaps this is not too intruding----This past October at 64

    I agree, The 888's lines are so similar to the D16..
