    Good morning all :sip

    We're almost starting! Just want to wish a safe race to everyone and lots of luck to Lyndon and the privateers.

    Unfortunately I won't be able to atend the F5rehose this year :( . Swamped with work, most of the days I'll be without access to a computer. I really need an app that could read me every single post on the main thread! With the new speach funtionality on the iphone this should not be that hard. If an app developer is reading this, I would pay!

    Don't give them ideas :lol3

    Anyway in S America it wouldn't be unusual to see 4 or even 5 on a Honda 50, so 2 on a 450 RR should be a doddle and would slip through unnoticed :D
