This feedback quoted from one of my YouTube videos, has inspired me to get more creative and try to reach a wider audience...
... "I can say with confidence that I will never purposefully prepare a bike, myself, and fly to England and ride and race on this track. However, with that said I am thankful to those who have developed made available to us these fantastic inventions such as these cameras and motorcycles you're racing! So that I can sit in front of my display and truly feel what your going through, experiencing and have a true sense of satisfaction that I've been there... It may sound strange to say that but, it's Brilliant!!! Thanks to you and all those millions like you risking it all and giving so much to the other millions that will never do what you do..!!!"

A real journeyman of motorcycle competition I've raced something every single year since 1982; as an International motorcycle racer, with multi British Championship titles, an FIM Euro championship, and wins on the 'pure roads' at the Macau GP, NorthWest 200 my credibility, history, experience, in-depth knowledge and subsequent success in this branch of motorsport runs true and deep.
I now also enjoy sharing my wealth of experience and knowledge of the sport, trying to put something back, through circuit guides, hints and tips videos and one to one on track coaching as an independent ACU certified commercial road race coach.

With the help of patrons subscribing, I will be able to continue to provide the best informed and hopefully, interesting videos, while also continuing to grow and constantly improve the range of help and advice I can offer, and hopefully be more inclusive, engaging and entertaining many more viewers who never have, or never will ride a motorbike.

Goals
70% complete
Once I reach my goal of $500 per month in addition to my regular events, tips and hints videos I would like to add two more popular French race tracks to my library of circuit guides, choosing from: Val de Vienne, Dijon, Ledenon and Magny Cours.
I can't 'fake' up the video footage for the guides, I actually have to ship the bike to the race circuit, book the track time and ride the laps until I've recorded enough, good quality, acurate video to return home and then painstakingly edit the footage in to a track guide. 
The guides offer advice and track knowledge to either riders who are visiting for the first time, or returning riders who may wish to improve their skills at these tracks.
