Extreme Performance Bike Weekend

Posted by Richard on Mon 12 October 2009

It was persisting down when I got on Sunday. So I went over to Santa Pod in the car the weather forecast was to brighten up. Lucky once I got the other side of Hitchin the roads were drying out nicely and I wish Iโ€™d taken the bike :).

They were still drying the track by the time I got to Santa Pod every time they finished there were a few more spots of rain so they had to do it again.

I went and took some pictures of Stunt Riders definitely a case of donโ€™t try this at home kids

Then the racing started so I went down to get some shots of the people riders queuing

round the corner for a bit of warming the tyres

Then on with the racing


Favourite picture of the day.  Shows there is a class of motor sport I could compete in ๐Ÿ™‚

National Finals 2009

Posted by Richard on Sun 27 September 2009

It was a nice day on Sunday so I went over to Santa Pod for the National Finals. Wish I could have gone on the bike but it needs a new exhaust & MOT so its off the road at the moment.

I got into to the pod at 10:30 before I could get the camera out someone in a Ford Pop rolled down the track. I thought this is going to be an interesting day. The guy got out the car okay so while they were cleaning up the track I took a wander round the pits.

Then the racing started

Then is stopped again when someone sprayed oil down the track. This time I went to the queuing area.

Then it was back to the racing again

Favourite picture of the day

Hello Mate

Posted by Richard on Fri 24 July 2009

When ever I go out in my motorcycle gear I seem to become everyone’s mate. From the guys & girls on the supermarket checkouts to the security guards at work even a policeman in the town centre last week.

Does riding a motorbike suddenly make you everyone’s friend. Are bikers more trustworthy and so everyone is happy to see us.

I don’t mind I suppose it’s better then being ignored just like to know why it’s suddenly cool to be a biker

See you around Mates ๐Ÿ™‚
