    AMCC ART Day, Saturday 9 November 2013

    The next AMCC ART day is on this Saturday!
    http://amcc.org.nz/advanced

    I'm joining group 3 for the first time, and feel a bit nervous, but I have done a lot of group 2 sessions, so time to move up. This will be the first "real" riding I have done this year. I'll have to blow out the cobwebs, and remember to start riding properly again - skills that tend to get lost when commuting and doing easy riding.

    I think I will leave the North Shore (Takapuna) around 6:30am if anyone else is interested in meeting up to ride out there.

    Haha. They will talk to you about tyre pressures in group 1. Take a pressure gauge and pump if you can - especially since you have the luxury of a trailer.

    Headlights

    I know that they like headlights taped up.
    but on my Dattona 675 the heats causes damage to the lens.
    Pulling the fuse is no good as it is shared with the starter motor.
    Do you have to do this?
    Cheers

    Generally anything that is glass should be taped up so that if you have an accident you don't leave broken glass all over the track. What I have done on other bikes is just pull the wire plug off from the back of the bulb.

    I also don't cover the entire lens in tape, I normally just put a couple of strips across it so that most of it is held together should the worst happen. You may well find this allows enough cooling.

    Good idea, and just to let everyone know Cycle Treads wont have their shop there on Saturday due to all hands being on deck in the refurb of the Barry Point road premisis.

    Garage

    Can you pay to use a garage space?

    I think if you want garage space you need to rent it from Hampton Downs. I don't believe AMCC rents any space. And I believe the reason why you see some people using garages is because they have paid themselves for the space.

    I just found this note in the FAQ:
    http://www.hamptondowns.co.nz/pages/...track-days.htm
    Garages are available and can be organised on the day. It is $25 per bike for a shared garage for a day session.
