Either way, it gave me a laugh.
That may be what gave the Hawk 3rd place. Our plan was for Ben to stay out till he had to switch the gas to reserve. He came by a few times and did a few things that Guy and myself were thinking was the signal. so we gave him a few more laps and called him in..
The reather loose plan was to let all three of us do one more session to finish the race after gassing up. But somehow that plan got changed..Seems I was still doing ok lap times so they just let me keep going. So I did. till I almost lost it (again) going into the bus stop.. I kept it on the track but the ordeal caused my arms and hands to tense up. At that time I told myself "Self you are toast- should have gone in a long time ago"
Guy did a fantistic job of riding for a new racer on a strange bike set up with GP shift pattern (which he has never used before)
Ben was great on the little ninjette I loved every lap he did. He kept getting faster and faster even set a ninjette lap record 1:25.2 Would like to see what he could do with a good setup and quick turn throttle..And to think I only paid 700 dollars for the thing. If only I had the grand or so for a rear shock and good fork valving - so that it would handle..
