      good one Gordo :roll:

      Don't forget the go fast strips Gohan and make sure you have something red on your leathers or bike, red goes faster
      1, Always look good
      2, Always know what you're doing
      3, In failure of step 2 refer to step one

          As I said to you on the phone last night Great to see you out there! You know you will love it, and yes we will come off. The bikes are fixable but we take longer to heal :oops:
          It' the risk we take for having the extreme taste for fun :twisted:

          As for my bike, sub frame stuffed / fuel tank ? / and fairings scared for life :evil: Oh well there fixable, off to Prestige for repairs :oops:

          Hey Madmax how did you get on? sort the Blade out, did it go alright?
          See you on the 7th.

            Blade...

            Calvin,

            The Blade handled like a R1 on Steriods. It wasn't known until riding it at the track that the frame has been slightly bent.

            20mm to be exact. Courtesy of Petes crash into the rear of a car on the Tonkin.

            Also the track tyre guage inflator is way out. I thought I had put in 29psi whereas in fact it was only 22psi.

            Hence the bike didn't handle to well. Tank slappers out of every corneras soon as you rolled on the throttle.

            The bike has been stripped and is in Sydney to be straightend. Hopefully back and ready before the tuning day or at least the first club race.

            Enjoyed the new track and the Bridgestones.

              Good to hear you had a great day and hopefully you will be right and ready for March 7th 8) fingers crossed. What Bridgestones are you running 012SS? I was using Dunlop 208GP seemed good, don't think they had anything to do with my crash. Do you know what times you were doing? At least on March 14th we will have timing monitors, get an idea of times and how we are travelling 8)

              See ya at the track.
