Thanks Doobs :)
I don't mind people taking it seriously - in fact, I like it.

I do too Wally, until it gets to point where it gets vocal during a race because someone makes a mistake. That really harshes my buzz, even it's not aimed at me or involving me in any way other than having to hear it. :)

Yes, it is awesome. It should definitely be a Thursday season, and probably a Tuesday one, but you know, Sheep Stations.
An open wheeler Tuesday season is on the cards, so keep this one bookmarked.

Woohooo, I hope you don't find any issues with it. BTW the "Sheep Stations" was not a comment directed at you, but some attitudes that appear every now and then that suck a bit of the fun out. Don't want you to get the wrong idea about what I think of the job you do. You're ace Wally.

I'm on cable. I have no wish for NBN to come to me  :o
At least the rollout of NBN on HFC has been put on hold  ;D

Same here, although I may get better upload, my download would suffer. My ping has gone into double figures in the last twelve months so I'm guessing that would stay about the same.

I doubt I'll race again this season. I had a lap of it yesterday and not real impressed. I might give it another couple of laps and try it by itself rather than after some laps in the F12004. It was horrible in comparison.

Cheers

I had fun for a while, but after thinking I was doing alright considering I haven't had a drive since October, I fell apart and everything went to shit.  :)
Still had a bit of fun, so thanks for the run.

Cheers

Feb 13 Wally?
Thanks, fixed. I was wondering if this race would get your attention ;)

Cheers Wally, you know there's nothing I enjoy more than driving good cars at an average (or below) pace.  :)

Hi Wally
I'm sitting another one out, the wrist is up to it, but I'm not up to driving a sedan.
Good selection of tracks though, have a good season.

The news of Bruce's passing has made me incredibly sad. I only knew him through the brief intercourse of Tuesday race nights, and from reading his posts, but I feel as though I've lost a great friend, such was Bruce's personality and presence. RIP Flattop, the nicest bloke I've raced with.

We all know how you really broke your wrist  :o

Am I late to the party with these jokes?  Surely...

They don't work because I broke the left and I'm ri.....  ummm, whatever.

:)
Well if it makes you feel any better Doobs, I arrived at work once in the carpark on my vrf800, thought I put the stand down properly and commenced leaning it over . . . and it kept going . . . with me on it!
Anyhow broke a bone in my foot.  I also more recently pulled my r1200GS over whilst parking, but this time jumped out of the way and only a few minor scratches.
Never had an accident riding . . . only parking!

Ha, good to know I'm not alone Freezer, my accident ratio is about 8:1 parking standing still as opposed to moving.
I did that about a month ago on the F4i in the Coles carpark. Being cocky, I was throwing the stand down, and getting off the bike in the same motion. Doesn't work if you only flick the stand.  :) No damage apart from a few minor bends on that one because I let it go down. I also have no disc between a couple of vertebrae so can't lift as much as I used to. The worst part of that was the bike was about ten kilos too heavy and I couldn't get it quite up to the balance point and a 75 year old, lovely old woman gave me a hand. It was a touch embarrassing. I seem to do stupid shit in bunches so I'm hoping that's the last of them.

The worst one before that was when I dropped it parking when I'd just torn my AC in my shoulder the week before. I also tore my hamstring when I threw my leg down to try and catch it. I was stuck under the bike because I couldn't lift it off me because of the shoulder and couldn't worm out because of the hamstring. All i could do was laugh till someone stopped to help me. I'm starting to think I need training wheels for parking.

I hear ya Bird, 600's are enough for me. I wouldn't hop on a 900 - 1100. The RR isn't much different to the F4i I was getting off so I'm not concerned about the bike.......once I get on the thing and have a day on it.

Ah Bruce, that's not good. At least you had an excuse (apart from incompetence). :)
It's always good when your passenger just steps off the bike like a cool person, and you look like the noob goose dropping their bike.  :)

Thanks for the birthday wishes blokes.

I go back to see orthopedic on Friday and hopefully get good news about the bones and their alignment, and get it cast properly.
I guess there's half a chance I could drive with the cast in a few weeks, so I might get to do some driving. Because I'm an old fart now I'm not going to do what I would have done when I was younger and I'm going to follow medical advice strictly.

Cheers

wow, bet that hurt :(  Nice bike :) got to sit on my mates Yamaha YZF-R1 last week,  didn't ride it, too scared :)    Happy Birthday
Cheers Phil,
Yeah, the RR is a really nice bike if you like super sports, racing style. If you're a cruiser man, they're the ugliest things on the road. I'm not a cruiser man. :)

It didn't really hurt when I did it because of the adrenaline rush from the fear and embarrassment of dropping the bike, but it was a bit worse later.
I felt it snap, rather than feeling pain from it. I knew it wasn't good as soon as it happened though.
The biggest problem I have now is transport. I use my bike for everything and now I can't ride for a couple of months.

Ouch, hope it heals quickly! 

How about driving one handed, auto gearbox?


I thought about doing that Mael but only just drive well enough with two hands. :)


Hope it heals well,  May I ask how it happened ?

Thanks Phil, I started another thread to answer because I think there is some comedy in it.  :)

Cheers

Hi Wally,

I'm out of this season. I broke my wrist today, I broke it good so I wont be driving for a while.

Darren

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.
