The 28-year-old heads to Oulton Park this weekend sixth in the rankings following an impressive display at Thruxton last time out - claiming a pair of top-five finishes.
The Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki rider has taken two of his three career BSB victories at Oulton Park and recorded two podium finishes last year before a horrific road racing crash ended his season.
And those fond memories – plus his Thruxton pick-me-up – has led to Easton re-evaluating his 2012 aims ahead of the trip to Cheshire.
"After Thruxton I had a nice little drive in my car and I began to dream again about what could be possible for me this season," said Easton.
"The team were not expecting much from me and so to get a couple of top fives is really pleasing for all of us - I wasn’t expecting much from me either.
"Before that I was aiming for top-ten or top-12 finishes so I am so happy to come away with a couple of top-fives because I think I really needed it to put me back in the right mindset again.
"Considering guys like Tommy Hill, Shakey Byrne and Josh Brookes have come off a good season, a full test and are free of injuries to be up there with them has given me more confidence than ever.
"I genuinely believe anything is possible for me now."
After sustaining multiple injuries, including two broken legs, hips and pelvis and coccyx, in his crash at the North West 200 last year it is a minor miracle that Easton is back riding so quickly.
And, despite having fond memories of Oulton Park, Easton admits he is hopeful the rain will hold off – with last season’s injuries still taking their toll on some manoeuvres.
"I am praying it holds up because in all honesty I can’t afford to have a big crash,” he added. “My groin is still really tight and it wouldn’t take a lot for it to stretch or strain and I don’t have a lot of mobility as it is.
"It is OK on the bike but I’m still not very confident in the wet – but then again if I can get to the front in a dry race there is no reason I can’t make it in the wet.
"I am just desperate to hit the ground running and pick up from where we left off at Thruxton."
