  • not looking good for the weekend !!

    hmmmmmm, now maybe i'm just being a big girl , but i'm not that keen to race in the wet just yet !! I looked at a pair of wets for the bike and the're about $475 , and i just can't afford that at the moment, I've got brand new Metzlers on for the weekend so i'm keeping my fingers crossed for a dry day ! Anyone have any advice for wet racing ?? Ben ??

    i remember seen a couple of riders with washing up gloves in a race last season,il be wearing my raincoat and ugg boots i think the more you worry the more chance there is that your gonna fall.just ride and gain experience,not that i have any in the wet,but im certainly keen :twisted:

      All road riders would have more experience in the wet than me. I have only had one race meeting but loved it! I did ok for myself 8) Just keep it smooth, try to brake in a straight line don't trail brake, hang off to keep her on as much rubber as possible.

                    You should of turned up Sunday, we had wet pratice / qualifying and dry racing, top day out.

                    I don't think we (Superstock) are allowed to use wets, we can use a street tyres, and that sucks.
