Great vid Chris! Was he whippin it over the table tops?

I loved how he kept waiting for the bloke on the Yam to catch up then shut the door on him every time.

I was thinking of maybe getting an MA license for next year and doing Wednesday's at Gilman. Never really done much track riding.

Gillman is awesome !!!

Im getting better every ride !! when you get a MA rec licence $ 85 it only costs $ 20 to ride ride 5 times its paid off !!

Nicky is one of the fastest in the state, and a really nice guy offering heaps of advice and bike set up tips, Im planning on having a go at vets club race next year and even if I come last at least it will be crossed of the bucket list !!

I shit my pants the first few times at gillman but you get the hang of it and start working on getting better, im just about clearing all the jumps now except the 2nd big one in the middle of the track as I need more balls on acelleration. Cornering is hit and miss for me at the moment as sometimes I get it right and others stuff it up completely LOL

Guys any time you want to come out to ride gillman, let me know, I be keen as to ride , in fact I reckon Ill be there this sunday if open as the weather is 22 and rain !!!!

Sweet, I'll need the MA to race the 24hr next year. I have to work out what club to join. Was also thinking of entering some of the off road series as well.

Whats the age bracket for 'vets club' ?

I'm a big fan of Acusa Park track, wouldn't mind having a race there. The plan is to get as much training and track practice in as possible and have a crack at that Extreme Enduro at the end of next year.

Do Gillman still have that Enduro Cross track open?

Any time any of you guys want to ride it let me know, or more than likely Ill be there, just look for the most blinged out KTM 350 !!! well at least I look fast LOLOLOL !!!
