PostSubject: hi - weekend rider here   Tue Aug 19 2008, 11:08

First topic message reminder :

hi Rudi here, Ive been riding with hrca for almost a year now. I loved it cos I got to see similar bike as mine and other Honda that id like to have one day.

I only ride weekends (or occasional quick trip to MCAS during lunch). Ive been riding for 7yrs with occasional track days, around 3-4x a year. The trackday with HRCA is particularly good as you can have a free session on their CBR600RR and NEW Fireblade fleet ($2000 Excess if youre unfortunate enough to crash it).

Ive meet some ppl with the same interest & pace from hrca, then we do our own smaller group rides with riders who live nearby. Then it branched out to track days and even buying bike/riding gear in a group Laughing

So, few of us are doing E-Creek trackday on Satdy 30th Aug(check weather first).
Please register at www.nswrats.com for group discount of $175 incl.lunch (instead of $199) or directly to them at http://www.easterncreekridedays.com.au.
Dont wanna risk your bike? then hire one of their GSXR-600.
Spectators & firstimers welcome too! cheers

You can rent a set of full leathers there. I'm not sure about the boots though. You really should have a good pair anyway, so if you don't have it yet might be a good excuse!! I must warn you though: Once you hit the track there's no coming back! Cool

That only happens if you have a VR46 complex and think that you can go out in the track on your first session and set a benchmark laptime. Take it EZ and you'll be sweet. Sweet and hooked! lol!

I had a small spill (like 20-25km/h) wearing running shoes and let me tell you, there was no running for at least a month!!! A decent pair of boots is second only to a good helmet imo.

Matt,
Just do O/Park on 13th, Dragins & DriRider jacket are allowed there in Group D/Firstimers.

Only $33/15 mins session and you can do as many or as little session in the morning/ afternoon.

He'll still need boots and (long) gloves for that. I did my first TD at OP wearing Draggins and a leather jacket. Looking back now, I feel like it was a bad idea. OP is a low speed circuit for most part, you'll be travelling under 80km/h on 80-85% of the track. But if you happen to crash at the other 15-20% you're screwed.
