Nah-nah nana nah, standing on hallowed ground.

Setting up in gasoline alley,

Well I was busy, Brett was doing, well ok he wasn't doing sh*t.

The view out my front door,

Went down in someone else's oil in practice today. Not too bad, peg and clip on, aarg. Work to do in Q1 now.

We had a bit of a hill to climb, and fast, from P1 crash but Brett made steady progress up the ladder. We ended up 14th and in fast company but I think we have another second or two of treachery left for Q2 and the race.

Great fun was had by all! We put Brett's bodywork on it to save mine due to it being sold. Brett's bike is a stock motor'd SS FZ07r virtually identical to mine that would get crushed at this level. Congrats to everyone on a great race!

Full range of events/emotions. Trip on own shoelace results in a crash that brought out the flags, speeding ticket on pit lane, bruised ego recovery, bike(S) rebuilt,

climb up the grid, hardest race he ever had,

6th fastest trap speed of the race even faster than the winner Rocco, ending with;

More than a few tears shed for a lifetimes worth of bloody knuckle, sore back, wee hour, motor swapping, build-rebuild, dyno time, data collecting, trial & error, million load out, countless travel mile work to get the toys into the world's greatest sandbox...

 

Thank you to the team, can't wait for next race!

The End.

Not much. I have an RC-51 to rebuild/restore this winter. I have a third generation SV650 race bike to build for Tony. I have a couple offers to run race teams to vet out. I had a Goldwing roll into the shop last night for work. I have a couple of FZ07 race bikes to rebuild/upgrade. And my wife tells me the trash is full...

Is that all? Slacker. 😆

 

Sounds like a full plate of winter work to me. I'm tired already just listening to the list.
