Well we had a top day with the Rizla/Plantec peeps yesterday. Very friendly bunch and they took care of us all day. We also got to have a chat with Reynolds, Haydon, Shakey and Hopper :) And turns out the team manager, Robert, is a fellow Saffa - I've been wanting to move into the bike industry, and racing (finances/management/administration/etc) if possible, and he has agreed for me to go see him and have a chat about what would be involved/options/etc.

Hopper did a few laps on the GP bike, and did an awesome 12 o'clock standup coming out of Clearways all the way into Paddock Hill Bend :hail The bike sounded awesome, and could be heard most of the way round the track (except for about 3 seconds at the very back of the straight).

I'll post up some pics this evening - took a few with my new digi camera, but the pics are HUGE, so need to find a way of shrinking them first.

Use M/S paint to shrink them. Open up paint then select your pic.Then go to image then streach/skew. Adjust % till you get required size.Press save as to save pic, if you just press save, it will reduce your original copy aswell . E.g My camera is a 3.1 mp and i reduce it to 40%, that works fine for me.
