Motorcycle: 1985 GSXR750F x 2, 2009 KLX250s, 2003 XLR125.
Track Day NZ style
took the boy (Chris) to a track day yesterday and entered him in the "have a go" class, this gave him some ride time on his 1985 750 as he does not have a full licence yet so is not road legal
The track was Levels just north of Timaru and is owned by the south Canterbury Sports Car Club, about 130 mile north of me.
Coming on to the start/finish straight DSC00200.jpg
back straight DSC00199.jpg
was get about 220km/h, hard to tell on a jap import
Liveing on the edge only way to go,good to see Man RTE38Cheers Peter RIP Rob
the only way to go Peter, a bit scary sending the lad out in the wet with only 4 or 5 km of experiance but he did well, he's a good lad not silly and it is the slow colours
the exhaust (stock) has had a debafle done and its very quite at speed.
would of had a go myself but my right leg is not right yet after the knee replacements, maybe in march at the next one.
Cost of track day, $50 entry, $35 to joint club for race licence and $100 in deisel for the motorhome blood cheap fun.(thats NZ dollars too)
