To be honest this road wasn't for nuda ,this was 150mph sports bike road but it did have a beautiful viewing point

Then we hit road works that had us ride at 20 mph for miles.we turned off the B500 and just followed our noses of a bit and started to see posters of speeding bikers and crashed bikes when you see the posters in Germany you know your on a cracking road so they brought a smile to my face ,this road brought us into this beautiful town ,more pics

We stopped on some random green pulled out the shopping bag and made lunch sitting on the grass in Sunshine with the ants and I decided we were going to the "ring" .Dave nav was set for nubergring and of we set up the autobahn ,after the first 100mls after refuelling I looked at my back tyre ,I was concerned was it gonna get me home and now the centre seemed to be slightly pealing ,never really seen this before so I put more pressure in it and sat around 75 mph so it wasn't getting too hot ,I figured I might find a dumped tyre around the ring somewhere

When we arrived at the ring it had just rained and bikes we not alowd out on track but it was drying ,sports cars were everywhere ,cars that I didn't know existed like big engine Renaults bmw's vw's all these odd cars that manufacturers must produce as track cars but someone like me doesn't know exist ,sure there were porshe 911 track and road cars everywhere

It was chaos and parking space was limited as the cars with drivers wearing helmets sat waiting to get on track and my heart started to pound as I thought I would do lap

I asked some random guy if he spoke English and he was English as said did I need leathers to get on track and he said what I'm wearing was fine but I might need to loose some luggage ,fair enough. Then he started telling me to keep it slow look out for the cars in mirrors and watch the red and white kerbs for entry bla bla bla I kind of felt he was lecturing me.....

So I told Dave I was gonna do a lap and off loaded all my luggage and frame work to the amusement of smoking onlookers and then made my way over to the ticket office to buy one lap ,29 euro!!!!!! Bloody hell if I had known that I wouldnt have bothered!

So nervously I filed into line with all race cars in front and behind me ,I tried to take my phone out of my pocket and get o pic but the guy pointed to me to file into the middle lane and I was right at the scanning machine ,I swiped my ticket and the barrier with green light opened ,and I was off...

The updates are so good its like we are there ;) Photos are excellent
Reading the posts you are covering a lot of ground and in some bad conditions also spending a lot of time in the saddle your bum must be solid
It also says a lot about you and Dave you both must be tired but you carry on well done ;)

Its a credit to you to take the time to share this Thanks :D

Ironzie, absolutely fantastic blog. As Clik said, feels like we are sharing this experience with you. I love the way you write your posts, simple but effective and the photos are great I'm jealous! (Not about the rain though :D )
Congratulations on winning the iron butt award, thoroughly deserved! Congrats to Zorg too, great going there lads :) and that Best Looking Nuda award definitely had your touch on it Ironzie, that gorgeous titanium header really made the bike stand out.
Looking forward to hearing your experience on the Nurburgring!
All the best to you and Direction Dave, he's becoming somewhat of a legend! Sounds like a great laugh and good company :)

Yes, Ironzies Ti headers are deffinately the deal clencher! I was yapping away with Ironzie at the dinner table when they anounced the first place. Propper surprised, never thought mine got much of a vote due to the company of Nudas that had other great mods like Stephan's underseat exhaust. :)
When we got to the Nürburgring they just finished in the weekend a 24hr GT race. Was like Glastonbury. Mud on roads everywhere.
Next whole day it rained and fogged. :|
