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.

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
Darren
