Re: Mondello training day 24th March






two ladies up today , both on there own , although its not intimidating once your there , i think everyones a bit nervous first time up , and im not being patronising at all , but it must be even harder going into that environment on your own as a woman , so fair fucks to yous

tanya was on a fazer 600 , and Kathrine came up from kerry ! , and not only that she set off at 5 o clock in the morning , bike packed up , went home , got the cage drove up on the off chance she could wangle a way to the track ,
both gave a great account of themselves ,

it was tricky conditions and both took the challenge head on ,



i really dont mean to be patronizing , when i say well done

Cathrine went out on my road bike , its a really tricky bike to ride especially slow , i really thought she might struggle because the clutch is light but its really tricky and because its a big twin , the motor is also unhappy at slow speeds ,

not a bother on her , !

I was impressed with the lad that never rode a bike before, rented one off you and went on track! Thats daunting even with experience! Fair play to him with none!!

Re: Mondello training day 24th March

It was a great day pity about the damp conditions . Fair play to the two lady's . Instructors were spot on and took their time to explain things ,
It was a bit daunting on the track with faster riders bearing down on you , next time I'm seriously thinking of giving 2strokey a shout about bike rental,I would recommend it to anyone

Was really great pity about the weather alright but at least it wasn't raining all day. The instructors were fantastic and really helped improve and build confidence, can't wait to head back. Anybody thinking about doing this should go for it as they won't regret it

Walked over for a look at the rental bikes and they looked impressive and good value for money rather than risking damaging a road bike.

Oh and il be honest and say I was a little bit scared by the R6 (and the damp) so used the vfr400 all day, I explained to the instructors that I was coming from racing motocross and had only a road and track bike with 2 weeks so they said to start with the 400 and see how how I got on. Had a laugh with it as it certainly wasn't lacking and reckon if I'd one more session I would have taken out the R6, but it will have to wait till the next day

Have to say its not near as daunting as you would think. The morning is very handy doing slow manouvers, have a bit of crac with the instructors and the other riders. The afternoon out on track was even better. I was quite nervous with the track being wet but luckily the rain held off and it was more damp than wet. Confidence builds very quick, mine obviously built overly quick resulting me heading into the gravel.....twice.... :-( but thankfully kept it upright and carried on. :-D And before you know it your out of track time and you wana keep going!!! Defo recommend it to anyone considering track days. Worth the few quid for the experience of talented instructors helping you learn the track. Ill look forward to a proper track day!

Re: Mondello training day 24th March

Went along myself for the gander.

Good to see. I was honestly expecting lads to be going bananas....but it was very respectful!
Sitting on the sidelines, I got very itchy feet & really wanted to get out on the track.
Definatly throwin my name down for the next one!!
Snapped a few from the fone, so the pics are shite, but might be of interest to those who attended.

And for those who slate Deauville....there was one on the track
