My local track

My local race track is 5 minutes from my home. There was a track day yesterday which was organised by a outfit from Christchurch but due to me finishing from work at 7am it was a no go for me. It would of been a cheap day as because of my insurance it would only cost $40.00 for whole day. Went up for a ride to see how it was going in the afternoon and ran into a few riders i know and they tried to talk me into taping up my orange horse and getting on track but was still a bit stuffed from night shift so just watched for a while.

It is a really fun track and there are some very tight turns around the circuit which the versys will eat up.

From what I see, Phil's V will smoke those guys (in the twisties).

Yes, I do believe majority of our Guys are from the Dark side.
I used to heard a lot of sheep jokes while studying in Tasmania.
Sound like the Aussies and the Kiwis are stuck with the sheep and cattle....

Was a bit stuffed actually at is was over 30 celsius and Im sure the track was hotter again, the guys in leathers were roasting.

I did 2 days, the first was a basic day with some class time and the 2nd day was all track time as it was classed as a advance day and was mostly a totally different group and did not have one cruiser on 2nd day and was all sports bikes and my V was the smallest there but not the slowest I will have you all know. What made my day was some of the guys that had a GSK 1000r came up to me and marveled at how quick it was around the course apart from back straight of course.

Heck Joseph, never had anyone tell me i got class, will take that as a very big compliment. We are all different my friend, that's what makes the world go around, respecting our differences and learning to agree to disagree and find common things we agree on to enjoy.

If you come off they do want glass or plastic all over the track so the tape would limit how much mess would get spread over track. My mirrors have been taken off to
