Morning Fellas.

How are you all? Had a massive off on the blade and needed major back surgery to repair bones, nerves and discs.

Ok - I lied about the off, but not the surgery.

Farkin annoying - been on my back for near to 6 weeks doing naff all. Just back up on my feet again.

Last track day was back in Dec06 - had considerably better luck than the last time out with the poxy tilt switch re-installed. Not that I got the farkin thing over far enough (funny enough due to a sore back - should have seen the injury coming) and still pathetically slow but enjoying myself

So.. what you all up to?

Tug - Your sister's wedding - when you here????

Corporate Hill

Can't put anything past you can we GD? Yep, that's the one.

Fave is actually turns 6,7, & 8. Turn 1 is awesome; Turn 2 is my nemesis at the moment - keep fekkin up the line through there

And Tug - by the sounds of things with the 7's the weekend before, I'll be propping you up at the bar :D

T1 is def. one of the best there.. Do they still have problems with that drag strip crap they put down (last time I saw it they'd moved the start further back)!!! Was seriously slippy in the rain :eek:

Have to agree, T2 is a rubbish corner. Who would have guessed a decreasing radius that goes off camber on the exit wouldn't work :p :p It's a lot like the exit of the Caltex Chase at the bottom of Conrod, not as tight but it also tries to throw you at the sand.

Is T6-8 the little flip before heading up and over Corp. hill??? Do you put your weight on the left side through the 1st right hander so you get a better run through the bigger right turn??

Good to hear someone ACTUALLY still rides on here :twofinger :twofinger

T2

Funny, the first time I thought I got the entry to T2 correct, I ended up testing the BT002's off road capabilities.....

T1 is awesome though as you say - not sure I've even noticed any drag strip shite, but 1 is very bumpy in places.

Yep, that's the one... and also the little right left into 11/12.. tricky little fekker that one, but heaps of fun.
