    And where would one find a flyer for free entry? I don't think my Spada will be much sport, but others might be interested.

    No you don't DYO. It's strictly test & tune. 4 ambers a green and just go.

    I think the Friday night "Race a mate" is DYO.

    Just a reminder for everyone that may be looking to go, this is tomorrow night.

    I think it's going to be cancelled.

    Rain forecasted from 11am (80% chance) rising to 3pm (100%).

    After all that effort with the sprocket too.

    Mutha Effer.

    IF it does go ahead I will definitely grab some footage. I have 5 batteries for 3 cameras charged, and a suction cup mount for fairing cam.

    Now I better hope for once that my iPhone is wrong. Woefully wrong. It very rarely is. At least not woefully.

    I only managed a 15.781 before the rain came. With two epic wheelstands. It's never done that before! My footage doesnt do it justice. I saw tank for a split second, and the bloke beside me said I almost went vertical!

    For your view pleasure. I didnt have my helmet cam on the right setting, so dont have a mic, so I dubbed in the mirror cam. Mirror cam shows my reaction over the wheelie.



    Well, after the rain I had issues. Started the bike to leave, it sounded like it flooded. Let it run and it wouldnt even idle. Tried to roll start, but wouldnt go. Let it sit for a minute, and it fired, badly, but I finally got it to rev, and it sounded like a chaff cutter. On the way home it was just burping and farting, just like when I got crap fuel, and I came up with a theory...

    I fueled it Monday arvo, It rode to the track fine, it rode all week fine, made the pass fine, ride to/from the tower fine, the only thing that changed was the massive downpour. And my tank doesn't quiiiite seal all the way.

    And its running like its got crap fuel. 2 + 2 = 4.

    Water must have leaked in.

    So on friday Ill drain the tank, and the float bowls, put some fresh in, see how I go.
