    Let the Roll Call begin.

    Grouping to be approved by Denver and/or BMW riding academy.


    No date or price has been pegged, but let's get a feel for who's [seriously] interested so long.
    Budget for R600 for the day - if it's less, you'll be able to buy that extra burger/ cold drink etc.

    Instructor wannabes - to be selected by Denver and BMW riding academy - no correspondence will be entered into - else you'll ride B-Class
    - Crash
    - Stranger
    - Dave31
    - Trumpet
    - Doc Rip (will loan bike somewhere )



    B-Class (fast) - experienced riders - overtaking on straights and the OUTSIDE of corners (no undertaking) - one-on-one instruction on request
    - DaCat
    - WD
    - Bite-Me-
    - Hover Ho'
    - Diablo (date dependant and instructor requested)
    - RazorRen
    - RazorRen Hubby
    -
    -
    -
    -
    -


    C-class (medium) - previous track experience - min 400cc - overtaking on the start/finish and back straights ONLY - also one instructor per 8 bikes.
    - Smotter
    - Vinkie
    - AMZ
    - Mags
    - hei wena
    - dude
    - Transalp
    -


    D-Class (slow) - 1st timers and smaller bikes - no overtaking - STRICT 'one on one' instruction - i.e. multiple groups of no more than 8 bikes per instructor on the track at the same time.
    - Ringnekkie (All depends on the date...and if I can get my leather easyovers before it...would they allow me on with that?)
    - Brendon
    - Speedy Vee (TBC)
    - Pieman (if leathers is not needed)
    - DVader
    - thnair
    -320Dee
    - jano
    - Pravesh


    Offroad class (to be confirmed there will be one)
    Please indicate level of training.
    - Hover Ho' - IF I can get a bike, no experience
    - Brendon - No training whatsoever
    - Frazzle - intro
    - DVader - intro
    - jano - intro

    Cool, cause there are few of us that would like to have a few 20 minute unrestricted sessions. My understanding is that we need as many people as possible to make this happen. Personally, i would pay double the fee if i knew i was going to get 5 or 6 20min unrestricted sessions in for the day.

    Seems my name disappeared.
    I can commit regardless of the date provided I'm covered by insurance (Apex) and my bike is in working order.

    Please think about it, charge us another 10 bucks for ink on the printer if necessary :wink:

    Awrighty then Peeps - this be the story, contacts and fame aside - there are very few dates left at the Big Z and in fact I booked the last ones left!!!!!

    10th May - dinkum sorry that's the earliest!

    12th July

    25th October

    Okay these are full days (all on a Sunday) and I have booked them, which means I have committed to them and have to pay a deposit soon.

    What I want is now a definite show of hands;

    * Firstly - who is committed

    * Secondly - do we go full day or half day - the cost factor being the crucial part here!

    * Costs - subject to final assessment - but I can say they will be firmed up at R 300 for half day and R 400 for a full day.
    ( I was quite shocked to see the increase in rates this year, but given they are as booked as they are - it's hardly surprising)

    * Remember these prices do include training and Medical Support!

    * I have already committed to these dates, so understand that while I want to give Think Bike first options on these days - I have to look after my own pocket. i.e. I have to have 60 pre-paid people for each date - otherwise I will lose money. I love you guys but I cannot be a charity.

    If I do not get the numbers from Think Bike - I will open it to BikeSA as well and my Auto Alpina customers to swell the numbers, I need the numbers to make it work!!!!

    So now you can start planning and let's see who is keen - I think it's a small price to pay to learn to stay alive!!!!!

    Is this still going to be affiliated/associate with BMW? I want to check with my insurance company if I'm covered.
