All good, it was possibly the worlds gentlest low side since I was already pretty close to the ground lol.

Suit was 2 sizes too small (limiting my RoM) and to much throttle while leaned over while chasing a control rider. This was some time last year, bike is good as new now. GB racing sliders did a damn good job of keeping the expensive bits off the ground but the rocks and dirt did a number on my Mivvs :?

Three hour endurance race, 38 degrees Celsius, Mallala South Oz. Hot as fook and almost killed me. But very chuffed to finish.

That can only have been down to a cold tyre surely, unless there was something on the surface (coolant or oil)?

I've copied this lot from a old (2009) thread.
If I remember correctly I'd jumped off a month earlier at about 135 MPH and turned up for this one with wonky sub frame and pipes.
After the first morning the down pipe from the rear cylinder split and I had to carry out a makeshift repair.

Early morning and the sky is blue:

I think this at Dry Sack, the hairpin at the end of the back straight:

Image

Lots of lean angle in the next 3. If you look closely at the down pipes for the rear cylinder, you can see my cunning repair with 2 Red Bull cans and 4 jubilee clips!

Great pics. Some times I feel like the seat is so tall on our SD's that I have to hang off like a monkey to get my knee down before I run out of tyre.

I did a track day at NCCAR in Garysburg, North Carolina on 20 May 17. This was my second track day. Had a blast. Still have a lot to work on to get comfortable and faster. I think I'm starting to get the bug! :D

Can't seem to upload a video properly. The link keeps going back to a blank photobucket page. Any suggestions?

Had an awesome day racing mini motos. These are just CRF50's but I plan on picking up two XR100's, one for me and one for my girl.

Had myself a couple of very slow marquez-esque saves where my slider acted as a third wheel lol.

Here's my girlfriend out there dicing it up as well.
