I did BikeSafe, ERS (Enhanced Rider Scheme) and a couple of Novice track days alongside being a Bus Driver (Advanced tests and annual top-up training to maintain the CPC).

They all helped but for bike positioning, managing the power and brakes the track days at Cadwell Park did me the most good, it's the same corners again and again with no road hazards to worry about and professional help and advice on hand if you need or want it.

I rode at road levels to start and ramped up to 90+% until I started to feel fatigued, then sat a session out...

You already know most of the advanced theory and how to use it in practice so I would say a track day, just be out for fun not lap times and you will have a great day.

I think I am giving it nearly everything in second, and no sign of any lifting.
1st is over all too quick, and in third by the time you hit the power the speeds are well 70mph.

I must be be even more of wus than i thought I was

Ah yes that you are. :038: 1st is good for 65+, 2nd 90+ and 3rd 110+ (MPH)

Your just tickling the throttle in 3rd at 70MPH.  :008:
