Gone but not forgotten
That garage is gone. So is the Bimota. I crashed it in the wet at Silverstone. I was flying, tucked in behind one of the instructors, overtaking mates who normally leave me for dead. The instructor didn't know I was there and he braked 30m earlier into the first corner, than he had on the previous four laps. I got on the brakes too hard and lost the front.
Still we've got an FT500 now. Who wouldn't swap a Bimota 1100 for that bad boy?
