The bottom line... the Scram ran perfectly...

For those interested in lap times, my best was 1min 19.8 secs but was generally circulating in the 1min 20/21sec bracket. The lead riders were riding 125kg Aprillia RSV550 supermotards doing around 1min 7 sec to 1min 10 sec laps. Morgan Park at Warwick is a curcuit of 2.1km with an extension of .9km to be added later this year which will make it an awesome place to ride. My personal challenge was to finish the race before being lapped by these fearless young'uns on their souped up trail bikes... hey, isn't that what our Scrambler is?

I received the race photos on CD today so as promised, here's a small selection...

Nice! Another reason I ride in a full face helmet.

Cam mount

Made an adapter to mount my helmet cam on the scram - near the exhaust (the cam is a bit deaf in it's waterproof case but you can definitely hear the Arrow from about 6" away...). Camera points forward or back and can be moved (telescopic shaft) another 3" or so out from the bike for when looking forwards.

That´s what I call LESSONS LEARNED: your camera is WATERPROOF

Excellent shots Griz! Seems to me there are at least two sponsors you need to get onboard for next year...Triumph and Nolan.

Once again great pics.

Rear peg removal

Interesting observation - when my Scram had a nap on it's right side the rear footpeg saved a lot of damage to that expensive Arrow exhaust. The end of the peg bracket had 1/8" ground off it while the can had a couple of light scratches which polished out. I'm only mentioning it in case anyone was thinking of removing the rear pegs entirely.

...or you could put your bike to bed on it's left side instead, and save the pipes entirely (but have shifter/clutch damage instead.)
