Gday all. This is a shameless plea for info on stuff about the Island this year. I've had a gutful of sitn back and wishing I was there, and since this is the last chance to see the current elected freakshow rider of the decade before he retires, I'm gonna try to make it somehow. Can I ask a couple of dumb questions please for those that have been there before? 1. Is it possible to ride to the Island on Sunday morning raceday, find a park for the bike, then ride back to Melbourne after the race? Obviousy I expect delays, but should I allow 2hours for the trip from the Dandenongs, 3 hours, 4 hours? 2. Parking:- do I need to also allow for the time it takes to walk the 5miles from the only available bike park to the track, or are they reasonably close? 3. Lukey Heights Grandstand:- I'm hoping to end up here to watch Casey slide his way up and over the hill (as you would do! ). Will I be disappointed coz I have to watch over and through 5000 heads and won't see much, or is vision OK generally? Will I end up with an empty bottle to the back of the head from this area like I did from the top of Mt Panorama (damn, that hurt a LOT.....), or is the ambience of Lukey generally suitable for a race-fan, not a piss-head? 4: Anywhere to get a pie and sauce up there, or will I have to pay $30 for chips and sauce coz all the beautiful people hang out there, and so homemade yuppie-pies cost $50? REALLY hoping to pull this off this year, trying to balance it up against littlest boy's 1st birthday, the $1000 fuel cost (1987 Vmax :huh), etc, etc. Never been to the Island, so it should be cool! Onya peoples!!! Hope to see you there!!!
