    Round 3, Whanganui Cemetery report

    Cemetery curcuit rd 3 Suzuki series report in.
    Things I should have done. I should have stripped my fairings off to alter fork height in the chassis, and I should have taken the shock out of the bike and changed the rear spring, and I should have taken the throttle and cables of that I had fitted for a quicker action throttle. WHY? All would have made slight improvements! Why did I not, A, Because I am kinda sick of working on my race bike at the track on my own, and racing it and thinking about racing all at the same time. I know this makes me sound like I am not hungry and lazy really, but fact of matter is, this is all about the finishing off, of the TT in 2016 to me, so I decided to keep growing/re learning how to be a good rider again, and adapt and ride around the issue's I noted. I qualified in 5th place for the day, and finished first race in 5th place and the 2nd race in 4th place. I am very happy and proud of those results, but as mentioned above, I know 100% what could have been if I had done the work on the bike. I am trying not to be as demanding on myself as I once was, why, because I do not want to push to hard and smash myself up and miss another year at the TT, My HOME away from Home, I love that place so dam much, there is no drug on earth like the challenge of the TT mountain.


    DREW, make them cold dude

    I have to say Shaun, I was quite surprised how I felt seeing you out there.
    It felt like a kind of homecoming & stripped away 25 years for me. Young blokes banging around there on bikes that now have their own classic class.
    Nearly a tear jerker mate, so chuffed for you, & me kind of too, in a different way.
    Thanks for making it back, I know the journey has been a rough one & some of us haven't helped that at all.

    Cheers Dude. You all actually helped me it turns out. It was the shit I took so personally that hurt me so much, that made me dig deeper to be a stronger better man again, so no sweat at all bro

    Frosty, you and I both know how much you have helped with re building me mate, and you also know it is 100% appreciated Buddy. Haha Yea it was funny hearing the congrats on your cell phone yesterday. I used your exhaust pipe and rear shock and rev counter and petrol tank and body work again yesterday mate, cheers. We need to talk tomorrow though about our agreement re Jan. I think I am just gunna have to turn my motor into a 450, as the SV will not be ready for the Sth Island.
