  2. i had a great time, got rained on, sunburnt, hypothermia but sat a siberia for 3 days and loved every minute

    highlights
    - seeing stoner come of in practice right in front of me (not good but definitely memorable)

    - seeing stoner then return to track about 20 min later

    - seeing stoner then kick everyones arse in the GP

    - burnout from 125 GP winner

    - sweet two stroke smell

    Wouldn't have traded my dirt patch for anything

  5. I had the most awesomist time ever!
    There was rain, cold, queing for autographs (in the rain and cold), there were bikes everywhere, bike lanes on the roads, heaps of alcamohol and the bestest friends a girl could ever ask for! As for details - I'd feel uncomfortable sharing those in such a public forum :grin: :LOL: :LOL:

  6. I did the Barry Sheene tribute ride / dinner , friend and I actually ended up leading the event from Morwell to San Remo (first bikes behind the celebs). Got to see ourselves when they showed shorts from the ride on the superscreens at the track and in Cowes. No kiss from Doohan but a pat on the shoulder from Rossi, attended a function with all the Yamaha riders, 4 people with us got passes into the Tech 3 and Fiat yamaha garages, had a great time. B.T.W, I'd gladly pass up the opportunity to ride on the two seated Ducati for a seat in the F18!!!!!

  7. Through a mate, 3 day VIP pit roof pass as guest of the Grand Prix Corporation. Lunch on friday with Mick, Freddy Sheene, Ron Walker, Minister of Sport, Steve Parish AND the pilots of the FA18s. I'm trying very hard not to gloat but-- an absolutely amazing weekend started with the ride to Bairnsdale with Scumbag, Black Betty, Boostjunky etc., and finished when I pulled up in my driveway late on Monday afternoon. In a word - WOW!!!

    I reckon good racing and good friends are the best . Then everything else that is good, just happens.
