A new Aussie member. A keen road rider but with the draconian speed laws we have here the track beckons. Anyway I've enjoyed lurking on the forum and I might get a bit more out of it now I can ask questions. No CSS yet but aiming to do one later in the year.

Welcome mate,

Victorian Im guessing?, I'm pretty much in the same tought as you! the amount of cameras out now and 'we hate bikes' (TAC) menatality that goes on, the track is the only place. Try and do Level 1 as soon as you can Its an eye opener. Steve, Adam and the guys at the Australian superbike school are awesome.

 

Have you done any track days? where you from ? what do you ride?

You guessed right. Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Can't do CSS for a while as I'm recovering from a shoulder reconstruction then heading OS. Shoulder should be good when I get back. I ride a Kawasaki ER6n.

Done all my training with HART so far plus a few weeks with Borneo Biking Adventures. (No speed cameras in Borneo :rolleyes: )

Borneo (Sabah) was great. Its quite wealthy from timber, palm oil and oil and the roads are very good. Real mixture of roads from paved lanes through paddy fields and villages to good twisties and highways through the mountains. Dirt if you want. We were on Aprilia 650 dual sport things but still the fastest things on the roads. Away from the towns there was little traffic and we could ride hard all day. Good Malay food in the villages. Did a package with accomodation in a luxury B&B in the hills and rode most days.

That does sound neat, a bit of a a hike for us though.

Hi Richard,

 

All the best for your shoulder recovery. Look forward to having you at a school event when it's all mended and ready to go!
