Phillip Island Moto GP - Friday practice day

At times there were some bikes on the track



and some in the pits



and there is always a Ducati



and some nostalgia in the show 'n shine





a mate of mine had one of these when we were at secondary school. He paid $50 for it!



the new BMW S1000R at the bike expo



plus the Honda VT1300 CX



being GP rider perk #1 (blondes)



some planes went overhead



some bikes were on the track



people queued for lunch



people stood and watched the track



people started up Moto GP bikes



guys in overalls wearing headphones measured the track temperature



traditional Australian cultural icons were on display



the Doctor went out to play



so did Casey



and Jorge



Pete was falling way behind. Usually at this stage he is well over 1.0 (no he was not driving!)



Clea brought the chocolate and peppermint fudge with double cream for afternoon tea.



Wayne Gardiner popped in to have his photo taken



some more bikes went out on the track



being a GP rider perk #2 (your own boot cleaner)



being a GP rider perk #3 (your own mechanics)



bikes were still out on the track



there was activity in the GP Paddock



the pit walkers came along again



Rob Phillis looked overdressed doing a couple of laps on an electric bike



the Suzuki girls came past



and we decided it was about time to head home.

Great photos K1W1, looks like you've got a nice spot there. Love the Triumph, what a beauty. Hard to believe they made them like that straight out the factory. No wonder motorcycling became somewhat popular. You'd own that over a wall hung painting any day of the week. The XXXX pub is a great idea. Casey looks like he was moulded into the bike. Wayne still looks fit as a bull. Lovely looking waitress. Did you give her a tip? I'm guessing that blokes cleaning seagull blood and guts off the boots. I hope they aren't planning on selling the Zero bike on it's looks alone. And finally, the Suzuki girls are class, always have been, always will be. Top report. Keep them coming. If you do requests, can the masses please be graced with one solely dedicated to the grid and promo girls, with or without your hairy mates hanging off them?

Great photos, thanks for sharing. I have never watched a GP live. With your photos I feel myself in Australia watching it near the track
