Dave declares today “just a cruisy transport ride”. So, with most riders sitting in groups of two, I find it easy to quickly get ahead and stop for action shots of them riding past. Leaving Roaring Meg’s, we head south along the CREB. The track hasn’t had much water in the past week but it still has red clay along with dry, dusty sections. Toby Price was zipping around the staging area on one (to avoid walking on his bung foot) and in fact took one home after the race to spend some time on. The price will come down in time, no doubt.

HANDLING The 350 shares just about everything with the 250 so it’s not surprising it feels very much like the 250 in the handling department. They are not, however, in a position to make a guarantee to this effect and accept no liability in the event of any information proving inaccurate.
Getting the trailer set up and the bike on board takes about five minutes. There’s so many to choose from but here are some standouts.Why not backflip over the London Bridge? The switchable engine map really makes a difference and on the 350 I preferred the more m aggressive option.
