Gotta admit that was a far from relaxing weekend. As most of you are aware i am currently on a fark off floater on its way to an oil field in the middle of the Natuna Sea (240K NE of Singers).
last weekend was a a real struggle condsidering my work commitments anyway, i had an appauling qualifiying session, putting in 33's. I couldn't believe it, i rode my socks off, really giving it everying and getting the back end quite loose around a lot of the corners (it felt fast and probably looked it too). I also found out my lap timer was very dirty on the inside so i unintensionally washed it with soapy water whilst i got some brolly burds to polish me beast! Came in on friday evening to an dismal 40th on the grid.
Race day came and with a new set of tyres which might i add was another stressfull affair. Despite putting my bike in the Pirelli queue at 12.00, it didn't get done till 5.20 with the race at 6. A hex bolt on my forks had not been torqued properly and couldn't be removed then when i finally went to take my bike away at about 5.30 i realised they put the rong tyres on, 180's instread of 190's.
once the lights had gone out, i had totally forgotten about all that and had a fantastic race, unfotunately with a load of girls bikes. Was quite fun though trying to take them in the twisties. Milton had a better start than me however i was lapping slightly quickier than him. Unfortunately he highsided out of 8 which put me into 2nd. Would have prefered to take him on the outside at turn 10!
Second race was really good but not as good as the first. Did a PB of 27.1, 6 seconds quicker than my qualifiying time. Didn't think sh!t tyres would make that much difference.
Second overall in the Novice Superbikes. Was a lot of fun walking around the pits and then the airport with a helmet, sepang shirt, pit pass and a trophy, Felt like i was back in China again with the number of photos i had taken. What a ponce!
So this is it for me, not back on dry land until the second half of November. I have already claimed my bitches so they know whos boss! I am sure i will find time to reas the posts since i am not ridding.
Can anybody tell me Peter Lim's website, don't have it saved on this computer and trying to find it is like trying to tell Boycie his bike is fine.
What is it with you Boycie, you don't seem to be happy unless you have found somthing wrong with your bike! You nearly, sorry you did have the gearbox stripped since you thought it was farked, in actual fact it was your new boots leaning on the lever. What a mong!
