    StayUpright intermediate course, Spt.

    Hi folks.

    I am thinking about doing this StayUpright course at Eastern Creek South circuit, as it does ay that the accept scooters.

    Frankly, I am not really keen on exploring the limits of the Gilera on the public road, and it seemed like a good idea.

    I wondered if any of you folk may have done this course, and, if so, had any comments to make about it.

    I like the look of this course and I'd be interested in doing it. As well as getting better riding skills it would be interesting to try out riding one of my machines on a track.

    Vespa GTS 250: Modern Retro brilliance. I'll ride it til it dies.Traded in on a maxi.
    Suzuki DR650: "That Thing" Excellent Single 650 thumper chook chaser that was too tall. Sold
    Yamaha T Max: Best Maxi out there and serious canyon racer. Sold
    Triumph Bonneville: Modern Retro brilliance with the sweetest parallel twin.
    BMW F800R: The Naked Hun. Great intro into sports bikes.
    Gilera Runner FXR 180: 2 stroke scooter missile from Piaggio.
    Gilera Nexus 500. Sexy like red Italian stilettos.
    Yamaha RZ250RR: Retro Japanese 2 stroke racer.

    Hi Pete.

     

    Yeah, I used to be a track day junkie, and I still reckon that a nice race track is the best place to learn about the handling of a new, and strange machine.

    The course has the advantage of not using the big main straight at E.C. which can get a mite boring if you can only do 120 to 140 kph and only gets "interesting" if you are closing on Turn One at 220+.

     

    While it's not cheap, for a half day, it isn't that expensive either, especially with Ulyysses Club's donation.   Wink

     

    Maybe see you out there?
