I'd love to go, but I crashed the GSXR on Saturday at Mallala :D She's going to need a bit of work. :bawling

I'd gotten myself organised to give the race day a go on the Sunday (following day) and try out my luck. Too bad I didn't make it past the practice day. :laugh Busted engine cover, bent clip on, broken levers etc, rash everywhere, oil everywhere. All damage on the right hand side. :bawling

Started pulling wheelies out of some turns and backing it in into the hairpins. :banana Doing my best McCoy impersonation at the time when the rear stepped out a little to far to save. :laugh

Haven't done a Bills day myself but I heard Bills keep numbers limited to 60: 20 fast; 20 medium; and 20 slow. They charge a bit more too, than your usual ride day/practice day prices.

No lap records for me. The only record I seem to be achieving is the record for crashing at each turn. :laugh Turn 2, 3 and now 5 :laugh Not to mention some unglorified off-road exits at turn 7. No way I'd like to come off at turn 4 (the kink) or turn 6. You come off there, you're going to hospital :eek:mg

With a 1:23 at best, I'm a long way off any lap record, but fast enough to have fun in the faster group. :devious ... until I fall off :laugh Feel free to join me next time I'm out (maybe January next year at this stage) and I'll show you my lines and you can make up your mind from there.

Oh, and I faired up well. No bumps or scratches ... the Alpinestars leathers work a treat :thumbup Too bad they're looking a little worse for wear :laugh

The fairings haven't been pulled off the GSXR yet. I guess I'm in denial. I'll get around to it tonight and assess what I've damaged.

:rolleyes

Damage to the GSXR is minimal. I got a hole punched in the starter motor cover on the stator cover (alternator cover). Thats where the oil came from, so its no big leak. $20 for another cover and its fixed. I'm purchasing new levers this week. I'm also replacing the alloy tubing for the RHS clipon this weekend.

Crash knobs are now on ... guess what? They arrived on the Monday 2 days after the crash :laugh Race glass is a bit rashed, but I'm leaving it like that for some race creed :laugh

PCIIIr is hooked up and GSXR has been remapped :devious Braided lines and EBC HH pads are coming. Still waiting for my fuggin steering damper :rant (I'll return yours shortly Steve)

The bike will be ready for the Dec 16th track day at Mallala. But I gotta make sure I'm not doing anything around then (wedding anniversary around that time :banghead)

Anniversary is on the 12th. So we're either going away during the Toy Run or on the track day weekend. I couldn't care less about the Toy Run ... so the track day should be fine :devious
