Pic from Oran Park last year showing myself (38) , Jaffa (37) and S Butler (20). You may have gathered by now that I've finally relented and got a photobucket account! I love pics, what else can I find to put up that's vaguely relevant...

Nice pic Jason.


Not a great photo (I am waiting for photographer to put his shots up)

This a rare sight with me leading Graham on his 916 and Brad on his Fireblade into Turn 2 at Morgan Park. Graham missed a gear on the straight and Brad muffed the start and hadn't caught me yet :)

I think that's when he either still had a healing collarbone or the bike had lunched 2nd gear. Here's another pic with we three, last ever historic race at oran

And Mike, speaking of devils, pic of me on the warm-up lap at the Barry Sheene with Brad and I think must be Graham??

K really You guys,

For those of us in Canada or elsewhere that don't have anythign even remotely close to that track or it's possibilities anywhere near us, please don't show those pics anymore. It's just NOT Fair, then again, nothing else really is,

DAMNIT!!!! I gotta move!

We've got a not bad track for go-carts that is! It's great don't get me wrong but for a litre class bike, the gearbox doesn't really see anything past 1st or 2nd except on the back straight where you might see a second or two of 4th depending an how bad you might like to LATE brake! How I would love to have just a half of that track near us.

Dave Gilyeat. Bit of a loose cannon on the track from my (near) experience. Wayne Gow TZ250 behind and Neil.....Crockford on a Haga paint job YZF750. I see he was on a 750T this year
