Been too busy testing the whole pack of DTM cars for George Morley's series. Plus nearly sliced half of the tip of my little finger off wed evening, so holding a DS2 is a little sore to say the least!

Bloody stupid really, was washing up (stop that sn;ggering Darren) and as i put some cutlery in the drainer, didn't spot one of my razor-sharp chef's knives also in the rack and quite literaly didn't feel the cut until it was too late.:ouch:

Blood everywhere, took twenty mins to stop the bleeding enough to dress it. Can't even check it for a couple of days as it's dressed with makeshift butterflies made from zinc oxide tape and it'll open up again if I remove the dressing too soon.

But I will get to this, I love the Ninja!


The word sn;iggering has to be spelt this way, because the filters think it's a bad word! It ended up as s******ing! A little over sensitive me thinks

Stock bike settings, but found a new rider setting that likes to turn in pretty good

and i must add
this is with PRO! settings, the way it should be... for those using semi-pro....
sector 2 - 56.4.

im still fine tuning my set up, but, at least its not tieing itself up in knots. i was having a lot of problems flicking it back to the left in the last tunnel. probably losing time in the last corner since the bike likes to stand up at the apex.

off-topic: did the quick reply disappear?

Fun combo but hard to get just right. Pro mode all the way...

anyone else having major troubles landing on the front straight? :scared:

I have to break on the uphill before the jump or else I miss the first turn off the straight.

By the way, I can't stop looking at your avatar! :D

kinda. they way i do it is to hold back on the left stick and go to neterual throttle ~3/4 up the hill and keep the riders weight back until the bike settles enough to jam on the brake and turn in maybe a bit earlier than what you might think and then double apex the corner to get a good drive up the hill.
I watched a replay to verify it was clean and side on view showed the bike a foot off the ground on the rise before turn 1.

No wonder the bike gets a bit out of sorts :)

I find a dab of the brake just before the rise settles the bike down - other wise it's the old ice scenario into the kitty litter :scared:

My front wheel is still turning into a noodle on the 2nd half of the start/finish straight :D

noodle :lol:

The best I could muster whilst trying to keep my thumbs from being crushed between the tank and clip-ons were these,

T1 26.315
T2 57.868

Not too bad considering it was the first time I've used the fully pro mode? Saves you a lot of time if you can get your throttle control down, it also seems grippier IMO.

Oh well, with a bit more practice I might be able to stick with pro mode from now on. 👍
