A beautiful bike, and glad you enjoyed Brands. It's one of my favourites - along with Donington - but I'm biased as my dad used to be chief assistant marshall at Brands.

With track plastics and tyres, you're onto a winner.

The best advice I ever received was "Just look pretty and try not to break anything."

1999 ZX6R (G2) - Pipewerx exhaust (dB killer removed) | Dynojet Stage 1 | K&N air filter | flushmount front LED indicators | Clear LED tail light with integrated indicators | Scottoiler eSystem | Pyramid Plastics hugger | HID headlight | Stubby levers | HEL braided steel lines | 07 ZX6R radial master cylinder | Bar-end mirrors | Double-bubble screen | Crash bobbins | one hell of an anal-retentive owner.

I went from a cbr600rr also. The honda was a good stable bike but on track the 636 just feels so much racier.

Agreed. I was not a fan of the CBR600 for the track. Mine was an '06. Maybe it was setup wrong, I don't know, but I was not confident in the front end of that bike, and always felt like I was about to crash. Only had it for one season and sold it.
