    Default Midvaal 2017-01-09

    Looking forward to the first track day this year!
    I got a set of tyre warmers and two different sets of track tyres over the holiday season.
    I got a set of Pirelli SC2 and a set of Metzeler K2 slicks...
    I'm thinking of putting the SC2 set on first and then trying the full slicks later.

    Anyone else going to join at Midvaal this coming Sunday?

    Nope but thanks for the invite. Perhaps this is where age takes its toll. Did it once for the experience on the Ducati Sports Tourer and thoroughly enjoyed it but a slow Sunday ride in the country is more my cup of tea now. It does help with safety awareness though and can only pay off with safer road riding. Enjoy it.

    My track addiction started in 2009 with a free track weekend organised by BikeSA at Phakisa for Simon Fourie's birthday.
    Took my little SV650 out to the track and had a blast.

    I only got to go to the track again at the beginning of 2016 with my Daytona 675 2 weeks after taking delivery of it.
    I went to the track a lot during 2016 and managed to improve my riding

    Here's a pic showing my first track day, first track day on the Daytona in 2016 and then the best track day of 2016



    The bug has bitten HAAAAAAAAAARD! I've put track body work on and now I've gotten tyre warmers and better tyres. 2017 is going to see me at the track a LOT!

    I'd love to try out Kayalami... but it's got a hefty price tag currently... running around R3000 for single track day.
    Everyone I've spoken to says it's the best R3000 you can spend. lol.

    And so... the day was rained out. We seriously need the rain, but I am kinda bummed with having two events rained out this weekend.
    Well... there's always next time!
