I've just been gifted a "hot lap" on the back of Glenn Allerton, Aussie superbike rider and all round top fella! It was on his "wet" race bike and what a buzz! The venue - Queensland raceway and round 5 of the Australian Superbike series.
The Valvoline sponsored Honda Fireblade. Down about 10 - 15 BHP on the "dry" bike but still around 180 at the wheel! With extra bars mounted to the tank for the pillion, I had to hang on as tight as possible when accelerating and push hard when braking.
Can't really describe the experience - it was just awesome.

Yep, we weren't hanging around. In fact, around 8 seconds off race pace. Pretty cool!
Dave, the top geezer that sorted out the ride! Thanks mate, I owe you on... hundreds!
I'd write more but was left speechless and smiling!
