A track day at Donington Park with Ron Haslem Race School , 2 sessions on track approx. 40mins , and then a couple of hours off track learning how to do Stoppies , getting your knee down , and squaring off a corner .

Oops - put this in before I realised it was about 2014 - can't delete this pic from the thread from my iPad (it's from 2005)

Checked a few boxes this year. Applecross, The Lakes (&  Hardknot Pass), Nurburgring (again), Stelvio Pass, Thiepval... It has been quite a year of biking for me.  :D
Not quite sure what to do with my early mid-life crisis. Ideas on a post card to P.O.BOX 150...

Here's me and my bro-in-law law somewhere on the Cumbria/yorkshire border before we both got our new steeds.



And this was the last rideout of the year, stopping off in lancaster only a week or two ago.
Stop polishing it and ride the bloody thing!!

For me it has to be all the Lofo rideouts, Northampton, Portsmouth, Southend. Rye, Ypres in Belgium, that epic day blasting around Brands Hatch and many more.
But the cherry on the cake was.....

My highlight was a 6 week trip to Slovenia/Croatia etc. Probably the last big tour like that I'm going to do unless I get myself another decent job.



Next year it will be UK based, probably up to Scotland through Wales.
