  3. No worries!
  4. Anyone else?
  5. I'm interested! The roads are shitty after the rains though, so I probably won't be very "aggressive" tomorrow.
  6. Good stuff. See you there.

    Roads should be fine by the time we get into it. That's partly why we're starting when we are.
  7. See you there. Look out for the ratty looking old CBR 600 :D
  8. You ain't seen ratty until you've seen my thing! :D

    Kitting up now
  9. Missed the exit and paid pretty dearly - 3km of a traffic jam the other way on the highway. Hope you had a good one!
  10. Waited until about 10:33am, then headed off. Figured you might've gotten lost, but also figured that at over 30 mins past the meet time that I was starting to feel like a fool for waiting.

    Had a hoot. Bumped into Mal/Z900 from Netrider here. Had a chat. Chased down a hooning Ford Focus RS with what looked to be a 500 kit, up a tight winding road, and put him in his place. :D Dodged oncoming cars wholly within my lane (I mean, c'mon, at least try to keep some of your car on your side of the road, eh?), rode through 100 meters of water across the road that was 15-20cm deep, dragged the knee, drifted the rear over some gravelly patches mid-corner, played with some extreme lean angles thanks to the Supercorsa SC tyres, met a guy on a brand new RSV4R, and was back in time to smoke me a kipper! :D

    Yep, great day!
  11. Sounds excellent. Glad you didn't wait for me, I was stuck on the freeway for ages. Catch ya next time!
