There'll be at least 3 of us riding Superdukes at Brands this Friday (me, Shade and Hawkman) so if anyone else is around and wants to book in, or even just turn up and be our brolly dollies. Clinky has threatened to stop by, and perhaps Weeksy too...

For those who've never been, it's a pretty nice venue even if you're not riding, (half decent grub, coffee and even a proper gear shop) and is about 40 mins out of Central London, or much less from the South East, where the M25 meets the A20.

Weather forecast can't make up it's mind, but it is supposed to be getting warmer and drier after this Thursday... so fingers crossed.

Have fun - I hope the weather gods are kind.

I'm in China and my bike is in the workshop waiting to have the base gasket replaced.

Hey Pete. Very sad you won't be there. I haven't seen you for ages.


Where are you in China? I've always wanted to go.

I know most of China is pretty grim now, but I did fancy Changai and the great wall... before the Chinese blow it all up, or immerse it beneath smog and grime.

When are you back? Autumn trackday?

I should be back towards the end of next week.

I hope to ride at Lydden Hill on Sat Sept 11th - test the bike after the motor's been apart - then it's off to Jerez late Sept with track sense.

Then it's the big one - Ms Fernandez has her MMA debut!

What... MMA. Seriously? Which series?

I know a few peeps in Cage Rage and BFC, etc. can we go see her fight?

...and I though the Dutchess was tough!!!

It's a club thing in Spain - semi pro rules, in a ring not a cage.
Lisa has held a black belt in Karate for years, pretty good kick boxer too. She's been working really hard at BJJ this year.

Lovely... used to have Roger Gracie teaching BJJ at my local gym. It's pretty hardcore, and of course it was BJJ that initially created the UFC, so no question it works...

Good luck to her - and don't forget to be polite. :eek:

LOL... Sad, but def true if you booked yesterday or today... Friday weather is currently suggesting damp start, but dry all afternoon.

Fingers crossed!
