Yeah it was an awesome day...some of the races got very exciting...

Big well done to Andy from Elite Motorcycle Training who put in a top effort the whole day to take out 2nd overall in D division (first time racing I believe?) ... it was a GREAT last lap that was very well fought (think last lap of Phillip Island...Valentino Rossi vs. Sooky Gibenau....well, sorta ;) ), unfortunately due to a starter error the race was cut from 7 laps to 6 meaning officially Andy didn't win.....but we all saw you mate :D

Great work guys....The Prestige boys looked great out there battling each other, it was a shame Leroy couldn't get his front end sorted...next time eh :)

Was a great day.
Always love the sound of the bikes howling down the main straight. Music!
(Especially the duke. :P)

Don't forget Calvin came in 3rd didn't he? Good stuff!

goof: Likewise. We'll have to try and organise a morning ride before the next one. B)
Might even get a few more ppl to turn next time. ;)

What a day :( did any of the riders enjoy today?? NO

everyone was slow and struggling with set up etc, qualifing saw myself and Tex around 64's and Leroy 68's WTF talking about having a real bad day :blink:

The rest of the day was ok I personally could not get my head around the front end, but was able to scrap 62's but still need to loose 2 seconds for Superbikes.

But we had fun watching you...nice little scratchie in pit lane too :D

It was pretty bad luck for some of you guys, especially Leroy who didn't make the last race due to a very poor call on behalf of the grid marshall....

Hopefully next time fares better for all concerned :)

that was the worst day i have ever had :angry: in the last 2 weeks i changed tyre brands and had the bling K-TECH valving put into the front forks.the whole front felt like a rock :unsure: i had all settings backed of and it was still way to hard.went out in practice and did 2 laps with a best of 67.not happy at all.went out again in qualifying and did a 68 :blink:
at that stage i knew that it wasnt going to happen.for some reason my forks were way to hard and couldnt be adjusted.they needed to come apart which wasnt going to happen.did the first race and got down to 61,s not without some major ass sqeezing.the bike was all over the track and i wasnt prepared to bin it on this day so backed off.the next race was the same but a tad quicker,60,s.
here comes the good bit.went out 20 seconds behind the last rider because of my F#$ked up hearing ability.got onto the dumby grid and the marshall tells me i have to start at the end of the dummy grid when he waves the flag.i accepted this as this is what happens when your late.he then walked away to the dummy grid wall,i then looked at him and went to do my warm up lap.when i got back to the grid,he then proceeds to tell me that im scratched because im not suppose to do a warm up lap.i asked why he walked away and didnt specify this when he originally spoke to me.he said sorry but you scratched.i was extremely pissed but composed myself for when i got back to the garage :rolleyes: now where was that nath and russ :angry:

F*#k knows.

I need to do some thing about my valving, but after watching Leroy and Tex spend big dollars on the full Bling K-Tech I would be worried about going further backwards :huh:

I am thinking my valving (Race Tech) is not working that well, might change my fork oil from 5w to 10w, what do you think Leroy? I would sooner try this first before striping the forks again.

but what is it doing calvin??too hard or too soft??ridged in the turn or soft??running wide mid turn?bottoming.we should have spoken about it yesterday
mine is to hard all the way through.im going to get the K-TECH valving shimmed or i will just fiddle to soften things up.when i rode your bike it felt mint.not sure if its the same valving in it or have you changed it?it felt like it just need a bit of fine tuning.
simple solution(BUY a R1 :P)

Too soft, remember when we got Russell down for help, we ended up putting 20mls of oil extra in each fork leg, the bike is still bottoming out and lifting the rear. I was thinking if we put a heaver oil in it would work the valving better.

And buy a Honda, you'll break 60's :P

What a shit Day !!!

Still struggling really bad with bike setup, At this stage the only way I can ride my bike is with the pre-load ALL the way out, the Rebound ALL the way OFF and compression as SOFT as it can go !!! :blink: :blink: the bike handles like shit , but it's as good as it gets , At least it stops now !!! Before it wouldn't even stop without trying to throw me off !!
With the bike feeling as bad as what it was it was extremly hard to ride let alone race with other bikes !!
had a bit of fun but when I nearly lost the rear over skyline with a massive slide I decided that it wasn't worth binning the bike on a club race day, so I backed off considerably and just went round in circles for the rest of the day !

All in all I've got a lot of work to do before I get back on the track for the first round of the state tittles !!

Either that or I sell the bike and give up now !!!

Damm, if i'd have known it was Andy of the forum i may have tried harder to beat him, not really. I was quite happy with a third for the day and a bike in 1 piece to take home and work on.....

you guys in the flash pits think you can turn up on the grid when ever you want !! Then you abuse the race Marshal for doing his job !!!

Well done to the race Marshall for giving up his time to come and help out the club, Sorry that you have to put up with abusive riders who are not fully aware of the rules and regulations.


it&#39;s always the minority who give the rest of us a bad name !!

comp commitee and you still don&#39;t know !!! Hopefully next year they will bring out the regulations in a comic format so as you might be able to read it and understand it !!!

And I don&#39;t think I&#39;ve ever QUALIFIED last on the grid !!!! :o
