I'm too lazy to pull it out......lol

Looking forward to tomorrow, just found out that we are using the same track variant that we did last easter for the first race. This will give me an idea if I have improved any, I feel I have, looking back my best time was a 1.58 so my target is to do better than that.

Cheers
Rob

Thanks mate, I'm doing two rounds in Queensland next year so we'll have to catch up at one of them.
I just sold my arrow high mounts to a guy in Brisbane delivering them for him on Monday as I'm up there for work.
I'm a tragic I've been looking at the gopro footage of that meeting trying to find ways to go faster......lol

Cheers
Rob

I'm finally doing more track riding - four days in the past month - and I really don't want to ride the streets anymore. My only real gripe is weight - I'd like to lighten the bike a bit. I probably will remove all the street bits over the winter and then put on a new exhaust - I'm thinking SC Project high single (I just like the look) - and that'll shed some weight. I'm curious if you've found any inexpensive (relatively speaking) ways to drop more weight off the bike?

Good to hear, flash is the expert on weight loss, although I do have titanium hips . I've just done the battery exhaust (mivv) and of course removal of all road gear.
It definitely makes a difference though. I'm into losing a little of my 105 kg which will help me more...lol

Cheers
Rob
