New Addiction

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Completed level 1 at Hampton Downs (New Zealand) yesterday and I'd like to say a massive thanks to everyone (especially my coach Jason) for making it such an awesome day!

 

I'll be back in November for my next fix. :D

 

Been riding for about a year now (currently have a 08 CBR600RR) and I really got into bikes just for a means of transport for commuting to and from work. But ohhhh ever since I got my CBR it's so much more than that now. I'm an telecoms engineer / project manager so love the technology and science which goes into sports bikes, the physics behind what makes you go around a corner (or fast in a straight line!) and how the smallest changes can make all the difference.

 

I'll be visiting often and as I gain more experience I hope that I'll be able to pass on some advice now and then.

 

Cheers,

 

Mike

Howdy. I wonder how many people we get to this site AFTER they've gone through the school.

Hi Mike

 

I like the tag of L&P. Totally meaningless in the rest of the world but it's world famous in NZ.

 

See you in November.

 

Cheers

OK, fill us Yanks in on L & P.

It is quite simply a brand of soft drink or soda that is available here in NZ. It is called Lemon and Paeroa and is a Kiwi icon.
