  2. Won't be at Broadford on those days, but I will be at Phillip Island on Mon 21st Sept.

    I booked it ages ago and made a thread on it to see if anyone else will be there.

    Since I booked it I've bought the 675, so I'll be riding that on the day...fairly cautiously.

    Anyone else booked in? Anyone else keen to book?

    PI: too early to tell

  4. My friends usually do a group buy and they pay $110 if they can get at least $10

    Champion ridedays also do a card where every 6th (or 7th ride day) is a free one.

  11. I'm in for Sunday, weather is now predicted cold but dry.
    I'm riding up and g/f is taking the car. If anyone wants to ride
    up together and needs a little gear transported up there, let
    me know today.
    I'll be leaving northern suburbs (near ring rd/hume fwy)
    around 6.30-6.45am.

  16. Yeah mate, that was me :)

    Great day, and had a blast for my first time on a track - loved every minute of it. The bike was a total star just great fun to be on. It even took a few people in the corners when we moved into the blue group but was getting nailed on the straits.

    Johnny - was going come say hi but the only time I saw you was going past me at 300 mph on the straight!! Didn't know where you were pitted

  17. Sorry dude, if I'd known you were there I would have come say hello. We were pitted on the top row to be in the sun for warmth after riding up in -3 degrees LOL

    I didn't pass too many people on the day, spent most of it tutoring some friends in a mid-speed group, did bust-off some quicker times towards the end of the day just to keep my mind tuned-in.

  18. Do you know what times you were doing, John?

  19. No probs - we were in the main pit lane that was gated. I know you passed me on the back straight as the big "Johhny O" on the leathers was a give away! :LOL:

    MVrog: I was with 2 mates one on 08 gsxr 750 and another on a zx10and they were averaging 1:10's

  20. I don't go for any race times on a ride-day, plus was helping friends. Later in the day I passed some riders that said they were doing 4's & 5s. I might have done some 2's & 3's?
