A good clip and by putting it on YouTube, Channel 5 have presumably doubled their viewing figures to boot.

While it was good to see the MP3 on TV, I have to point out to anyone that watches the clip that every other season of Fifth Gear was better than the current one - more Tiff and Jason driving sideways, less annoying commentary from Lovejoy (the guy in the MP3 bit) - oh I hope they fix it for next season.

At least Top Gear returns in a couple weeks!

I like it too, and I too was probably faster in the corners.

I did about 15 miles on it today, freeway, around town, and a tiny bit of safe goofing off in a parking lot - testing the lean angles and such.

Confidence in the corners, lots of staring from cagers, and I couldn't reach the front of the pet container from the helmet hatch.

Needs a bigger windscreen. I had to really hold on on the freeway, flat out with an indicated 80MPH.

I might take it to geek central (my office) and see what reaction I get. May set up a time lapse webcam to watch it for the day.
