    So its been six weeks and we are off to Anglesey, a two day meet. Saturday looks good but its going to be wet on Sunday. After enjoying the ride last time out I leave my gearing alone, see if it works here.

    With not riding for a few weeks I take my time during practice and get myself all streatched out on the bike, and in the short session it was hard to tell what the gearing was really like, but it felt useable.



    Race 1
    I'm way down the grid, as the lights go...

    I know i have not been about much, [b]well at all![/b] So i thought i would let you know whats been going on, if nothing else it gives you something to read and a few pics to look at.

    I was all excited for the start of the year with having the big off last year, and just getting out in the last race of the season.
    1st round at Anglesey. The weather was real shitty for this one, heavy rain and strong winds as i rolled out for practice, some of the worst weather i have ever rode in. Thats including two years as a motorcycle despatch rider. But it went well an i could...

    had my last vist to the hospital yesterday and everything is going to be ok, i didn't say in the last report but there was a worry about my ankle. one of the little bones i had broke has the main arteries through it which supply the blood to my ankle an if it hadn't healed properly i could of lost all the movement in the ankle. but it has healed so i went for a swim today. its a bit to soon for the push bike as my elbow is still a little tender another week or two for that.

    i'm still hoping to get racing before the season is over but i will only make the last one or two.
    the bike...

    when i wake on the sunday everywhere is wet but it is not raining and the clouds are getting lighter so i'm hopeful for a dry practice, i'm a little giddy about this place as it is may 1st time here and it is so tight and twisty. but the sun is trying to come out and its getting warm things are looking up.

    This is only a small club meeting, but it is a real friendly place to go, an is run by a former British 125 champion from back in the day. The circuit is only a mile long but very focusing as if your getting it wrong here all you can see is those big square curbs. It use to be an army barracks and the track is the old road around the place. Set in a wounderful location, the sea one side and Welsh mountains on the other.

    We get their Saturday afternoon and it is pouring with rain,...

    Mon 31st March. We unload the van putting the bike in the race preparation centre (my living room) and i start to look over it seeing what i will need. Just crash bungs and some of the little sliders that go in the foot pegs, so i jump on the pc and place my orders. Now its all against the clock as i can't do anything until the crash bungs arrive, as the lefthand side one is bent right over and needs to be cut off. This means that i can't get the fairing off. Well i could but i might not...

    We arrive on friday afternoon and start setting up, once we are sorted its off to the club house for a bite and beer. Its very cold with a cutting east wind i get in my sleeping bag fully dressed. Saturday 29th was a test day, an it will be the first time we have rode the bike since refreshing the engine over winter. I'm up early and its not as cold but the sky looks full, an as we approach start time it starts to rain, the weather report says it will dry up and be a nice bright day,...
