    But yes hearing the TZ gave me a twitch... lol

    You'd never go hungry with Nigella Gaz.
    If it weren't for flashbacks...I'd have no memory at all..

    Still favour the old era Spyda. The fact that some old Champs came here to do parade laps isn't enough for me to go.
    Loved hearing the old TZ tho .(thanks again Malcy ).
    Bugden went well , but the rest of the show isn't for me anymore.Rather have a ride myself ,(but not on tracks,far too old and dottery for that).
    I don't collect bikes,but prefer new ones to own and ride. I know my days of doing that are numbered .
    My love of GPs is even fading a bit,but at the mo I still manage to be enthused enough to travel to select meetings.
    But don't doubt my love of bikes,I just do it my way.

    yip, it's your life you live it the way you want to, they weren't going to have ctas there, trying to get people to the track but he was there and his footage around for us to see it again and again.

    Not having CTAS there is a tad Auckland-centered. It was a round of the NZ National champs and the rest of NZ has a pretty good right to see it.

    Glad he managed to sneak in....Even if I can't personally see CTAS.....

    The Kawasaki Trail Ride was pretty choice. Had a mooch around the pits, looked like a good event.

    I never talked to Robbie about that and we were pitted down in #5/6 as you know, and was racing my own bike as well, so I never heard any of the legends briefings, assuming there was one.

    But Robbie's view was " give them a fucking horn display" not just riding around! So, he made lots of noise and speed! I think he was saying "whoa, horsey" a few times getting it hauled up for turn one.....he did mention that he cooked the front brakes and had some pad knock back in the last session. (and it's not like the brakes are not speccy, just inside the rule limits!). he sure took a few heart beats off my life expectancy, but well well worth the trade.....

    Settle in with a coffee - it’s an hour long. Focus in on the legends and the sbk class, but still a bloody good thing to have in front of the public, full stop.

    Okay, I’m a little biased, but hell the only thing worse than being talked about, is NOT being talked about...
