    Well if Casey was here he would say “clearly your ambition outweighs your talent”

    Cracking first 3 session’s. Loved it on the triple.

    Then I pretty sure it was too much gas on cold tyres coming out of the hairpin, it high sided me right off, got away with it pretty well. Suits got a hole in the elbow, helmet (1 week old) dead. Gloves dead, boots seem good. I know it’s too late but after this I’ll be getting a back protector.

    Bike needs a few bits but very lucky nothing major, just handle bar controls, few bits of plastic, tank has a dent that the father in law (with him on the track day) can get pulled out and painted.

    They have been good so far, but yeah maybe not the best choice, I was not pushing hard, but my bike says otherwise.

    Old Hairpin or the Melbourne Loop Hairpin?

    If it's the loop, I'd have thought 3/4 of a lap should have put enough heat in them... if it's the old hairpin... you should have been more careful :P
