Like Stuff Off a Shovel
Still, he's putting on a brave face. This is what he says after yesterday, his first day of testing in Almeria, Spain.
“I have hardly touched a thing on the Tyco BMW S1000RR apart from footrests and bars and I’m more than impressed already. It’s that nimble and has such a great feel, you could ride it for a lifetime; it really is a mega bike.
“We rode today on used tyres, which does help you get a good feeling for a bike, and I had one hundred percent confidence in it and felt great. It goes like ‘you know what… off a shovel’ and even though I haven’t ridden a competitive bike for around six months, I know fast when I ride it, and it did everything I asked of it.
“If I’m honest I’ve got more out of the first day on this bike than I did here last year for three days – so take from that what you will.”
We wish him well. If you want to see Guy's Dirt Quake adventure watch the video below. If you want to see his next Dirt Quake adventure in person, get along to Dirt Quake IV at King's Lynn, 17-18 July. G
