Been a couple of hours, camp setup with Boots crew, signed on, had a walk around.
Caught up with Matt & had a bit of a yarn. Caught up with a mate from Honda, very lucky to get inside the inner sanctum (no photos, voice recorder or touching... Anything).

Very windy at the island, but the sun is out, not so bad. The place has some people, bloody circus really. More later

Clouded over, a few spots of rain, temp has dropped, we'll see how tomorrow goes. Time to drink.....out

Guide needed!

A young English woman is visiting Vic just to go to the MotoGP and needs a guide down to PI on Sunday morning - and perhaps a guide on the way back too; she may have a bike (one of our Caponords if she's comfy riding it - her normal ride is an R1) or may need a lift down and back. Currently she's staying in St Kilda.
Any takers?

The powers that be in NSW have made a minor adjustment to the road rules, it is against the law to have an animal between the rider and the handle bars, the old wording was on the petrol tank, as some bikes have petrol tanks in non standard places some riders were able to get away with having a dog up front. Not any more

Thanks for the offers, but Sherri has decided to take a coach instead: the thought of riding back after a long day on a strange bike and strange roads - and dealing with VicPol - has meant that she'll opt for a bus-ride down instead.
Did I mention she has a paddock pass?

- and dealing with VicPol -

Good to see the favourable impression they are making on our international visitors.........

You blokes are getting the double whammy with the Supercross at the island last night. Nice to see Valintino Rossi turn out to watch Aussie Chad Reed strut his stuff. And well done Chad for coming back down to race for the home crowd. Just need Casey to make it a double today
