Funny story Phil - Greek tragedy perhaps. I replaced my old (15yr) CBR600F4i with a new CBR600rr and was lucky enough to be picking it up on my birthday Thursday. I wasn't used to the clutch, engine note etc and was paranoid about new tyre grip (because I've high-sided from a standing start before on new tyres), under revved it and stalled with a little lurch, lost my balance, and refused to drop the bike hard. I was still fighting gravity trying to drop it gently, and when my elbow hit the ground about 100 kgs went through my wrist and it snapped. Best, and worst Birthday ever. So now I'm paying for 8 to 10 weeks of rego, and insurance on a new bike I can't ride. The Ambulance and hospital hospital staff were great, and Pro Honda Moorooka, bless their cotton socks, are replacing the piece of fairing I did still scratch for nothing, as a birthday present.

I've upgraded my vid card and going to put my previous two cards on Gumtree, but wanted to give a heads up to anyone here who might be interested.
I'll be asking for $
I'm in Brisbane
If you want to know anything else PM me or respond in this thread.
Just thought I'd say hello.
Sorry I haven't been driving for a while. After I had to quit last year to concentrate on TAFE (waste of time) I just didn't feel like driving much.
I've done a bit of iracing, but not very much at all. Bathurst is quite good.
The site looks pretty schmick.
I hope you're all having fun, and I might see you on track soon......or I'll continue to be a slack prick.
