I'll be there for the whole week. Official testing on Monday and Tuesday, one day off and back into it.

Riding down this year and hopefully going to the Adventure Film Festival on Friday and Saturday.

Anybody need a camping pass?

Hitting a top speed of 80KPH down the main straight at Phillip Island would be just too damn embarrassing for me, Russ. I think i'll keep practising until i'm comfortable at 90 before doing a Monday with you.

Hi Mick - yes you can walk or ride around the perimeter of the track - counter clockwise for most of it - Best viewing - you will get a lot of views onit, best to take your time on Friday and view from everywhere to get an Idea - for noise - Start Finish line - for antics - Siberia - for skill awareness - Turn 11 to watch them rear wheel slide to set up for turn 12 - A great weekend and one Im sure you will enjoy -

Be careful riding the coast from Cann River to Orbost - Police Nirvana sometimes

Just yesterday I entered the Swann Insurance competition to get some tickets, so at least that's taken care of!

Now I just have to figure out whether to ride the Vmax and hope I get past Norseman before I chuck a rod out, or ride the little Ducketty and hope my knees come good after the first hour.
Yeah, she'll be right.

Three of us fresh off the boat from 10 days riding in Tassie on Thursday morning, so we're keen to have a look for the first time.

No doubt about that, and the more I look the more I find, although I maybe tempted to go and have a bit of a look around Mt Macedon , we have past though there a few times but never realy had a good look around, any tips on what to see anyone, (its not really a hijack, it's about the trip to the supers)

No worries, Pat. We'll do that. I think it'll only be calamity that stops us from getting there;o) - an off, or running out of money, something silly like that.

In the hills east of Melbourne you say. Mental note made. If we aren't biked out (what am I saying?) after 10 days in Tassie we might have a look around there as well, but as usual... we'll make it up as we go along.

Al.
