Leaving skid marks on the face of heaven

Did the Church Point run this morning with a good friend on a V7, perfect weather after a week of overnight showers, perfect tarmac and the first ride on a big bike after a year long hiatus. Still getting used to the throttle and the engine and the individual nature of this bikes six gears, ie: is 2nd or 3rd better for a 35km/h corner... 2nd was better for one in particular, the rear locked up and now very thankful for some well embedded mountain bike skills. Needless to say, this bike drifts excellently, and was able to get back on the right side of the road before a dirty great white Mercedes came around the corner. Apparently there is now an extra skid mark just past the cafe at Cottage Point!

Was that the only skiddie you laid down this morning, mate?

Hey Dan! Yep, that was about the furthest limit I want to find with the bike at this stage!

Chris, thankfully I hurried home to find that yes indeed, the only skid mark around was the one left at Cottage Point! Phew!
