Rick & Louise

Track Retired 1/1/2024


WEATHER : Started at 28 degrees, slightly overcast with the sun coming out later.  Perfect Conditions

ATMOSPHERE : Everyone was buzzing yesterday, Green group was a really good group no knob heads.

TRACK : No slips, track was clean, an oil spill in into turn 1 saw some riders having off’s. no injuries except to the wallet, a couple of people had some moments

PITS : No power issues, Louise on warmers I didn’t bother, plenty of space. Easily able to distance great not to be crammed in like sardines.

Great turn out, room for two to squeeze into.

Big pre day briefing on the starting grid, Rick wiped out spectacularly before even sitting on a bike. Not embarrassing much haha.

For once I was actually ready for the first session, but only just 🙂 .So many friends here today and chatting to loads of riders during the day, really great atmosphere.

The ZX6-R behaved perfectly allowing speedy girl to run at a great pace and she was gone baby. Me on Streety had some minor tweaks done with the help of Howard (thanks Howard)  🙂 the bike with a 1050 throttle tube was a tad twitchy off then on the throttle especially around the corners. This absolutely minor adjustment worked wonders, no ‘jerk’ now, too easy hitting the corners.

One of the best, fun bikes to ride around Barbagallo’s (yep I know it’s not called that anymore). Only thing I forgot when switching and retiring from faired sports was that wind when going down the back straight.

But hey well worth dealing with that for how quick and ‘flicky’ this bike is 🙂 Happy days


We stayed for three sessions, packed up and homeward bound via a Krispy Cremes pick up in Midvale.
