Yesterday was my first crack at a track/ride day, and what better way to try it out than at Phillip Island. What a track!!! Awesome speed and fast flowing the whole way around. I cant find a favourite point of the track, but do love the bit between the start line and the finish line... all 5km of it!

As it was my first day i went for the slow group, but in saying that, there were plenty of people in the wrong group so it wasnt too slow and lots of fun. Before the day i installed braided lines, shorty asv levers, 05 header mod and the bike was simply awesome, and with the Termi exhaust, shifting back to first and second at 14k revs, the bike sounded just awesome.

here are a few pics from the day.. i am addicted, and addicted to Phillip Island.

I jealously hate you... kind of a lot.


But I love the helmet, gloves, and Termi! Congrats on your first safe day at the track and welcome to one serious addiction :cheers

Hey Rich, not sure about the sbk and afterburner atm. A mate wants to do a winton ride day the week before, but I was hoping to do a PI double header on 14th & 15th march.

Is afterburner any different to a normal ride day?
