  1. Hamilton MCC Round 2 @ Hampton Downs

    At the first round of the Hamilton MCC Series I'd had my first ever Pole position and came away with some great results. Turns out I'd also ended up making a couple of decent bloopers as well. First, I forgot to pick up my race licence before leaving the track. Worse, I'd put the excess petrol in the fuel jug into the bikes petrol tank while it was sitting on the trailer and I'd forgotten to put the fuel cap back on. So I drove all the way ...
  2. IAM Observer Test (10/07/2014)

    If If’s and An’s were pots and pans, then I’d have a whole pile more blog posts than I do. Suffice to say my blogging has been crap in the last year or so.

    I blogged my IAM Initial Assessment round April 2012, a monthly ride in May 2012, and then nothing, so I should probably update you on that. Around May/June 2013 I passed the IAM Advanced Test, making myself a full member. In August/September I was part of the 2013 Trainee Observer intake, essentially, right back into being ...

    I'll start posting future updates here as well :-)


  4. Update

    The ZXRD400 has been to Ruapuna, Taupo and Manfeild with various 'success' values.

    Ruapuna was its first Race meeting and a lot was done on the Friday test day to get it working. Much thanks to Bert, Crazyman and the other GPR boys and Leigh for the running around. Chenged the brakes, forks settings and other stuff. Overall it seemed to go OK.

    Taupo was the next Race meeting. This wasn't sp good as the slower corners showed a serious part throttle issue. Also the bike ...

  7. 1st of Winter

    I wasn't planning to ride this weekend as I'm flying solo at work for the next three months and figured I'd have plenty to do, but when I saw the weather was to be brilliant all weekend, I just couldn't help myself.

    The programmed Ulysses ride was a short/social jobby starting from Plimmerton, up to Foxton for lunch and on to Himatangi Wines, which isn't really much of a ride but one does always have to get home I guess!?

    With the late decision to go, I didn't get a ...

  8. Hamilton MCC Winter Series Round 1 @ Hampton Downs


    Seems like it's been ages since I was last racing but it's actually only been 5 weeks. The summer was quite hectic as I was either racing, working on the bike to go racing or organsing the rest of life around race meetings, so the end of summer was a quite a relief. The sudden halt of everything to do with racing made the break feel like I'd been away from my bike for months and this made getting the bike ready a chore instead ...
