You lot should come up for both rides.
Experience the best riding in the state, maybe the country, could even be the best on the planet, perhaps the best in the universe.

The roads are better, the weather is better, the people are friendlier.

To be fair your beer is better, that is probably why you have more bogans.

Come up, the worst that will happen is the average IQ at both ends of the state will drop a bit.

that is what I am waiting on, my club was apparently meant to get a team entry hence why I didn't put in an individual entry. So far the secretary hasn't mentioned if they got the entries up in time or not.

Club secretary wasn't on the ball and didn't get the team entries in.

Oh well, back to Tassie for a visit me thinks. I would like to do the Vets champs as well, but 2 trips to Tassie from ACT is a bit of a hassle. Specially when there are no direct flights to Launceston.

Nah not going this year. Hopefully next year, if they get their crap together and run the crit on the same day/weekend. Makes it a good weekend away then.

I can't afford it this year, I'm on the hunt for a track bike. The hunt is not going great because I am using a really small gun that cant bring down the type of bike I want. So I need more gun 8)

I hope its a great day for ya's

cheers
