but every now and again i get waved forward from a stopped position and ive become very predictable.you guessed it.
FULL THROTTLE , LAUNCH my little 650cc to warp speed.
1st gear ****ing red line, 2nd gear redline, 3rd gear redline and i keep going through gears usually until i scare myself or 120km , which ever comes first.

but this time team i ****ing stupidly started to multitask a blinker cancellation on my 2nd to 3rd gear shift and it didnt shift , so once i was full thottle again i hit the rev limiter and thought **** it

oww well , next time.
So you let the poor lads up front collect all the tickets

The rc8 was there and it was looking great until the 790 came along and made it look just a little aged , I mean in terms of style.
690sm is stuck in the garage , dont think that will make a show this summer.

The 790 is a sharp looking unit - agree with that. Pic of the RC8 of @Sungod Racing and my SDGT on a jaunt shortly after his Orange Unobtainium arrived. They look good together in my opinion. Same could be said with the RC8 and the 790.

Perks of being my friend: You'll be the NORMAL one!

I do all my own stunts but not intentionally.

Every rare once in a while you find that unexpected "someone" the one who sends your heart racing and can change your life forever ... we call these people cops!

I surprise myself with these verbal "pearls of wisdom" then try to get out of the car with the seatbelt on?

Taking Viagra for this terrible sunburn ... doesn't cure it or anything but it keeps the sheets off my legs at night!

Anyone fancy a local (Finnish) Whatsapp group? Would be easier/quicker to keep in touch and tell everyone that someone is going for a spin?

I finally got my own Duke from the dealer.. What a story! :-D But it ended well. I'm going to the Ahvenisto track day this sunday, anyone else coming?

Great idea!
I made the group with the same name, just pm me your phone number and I will add you.
I’m also going this Sunday to ahvenisto, even though it’s gonna be freezing.
