And Bayliss on the Panigale second in the Australian Superbike Race 1, by 0.2 sec. not bad for an old man!

Great day for Ducati, here’s hoping for similar on Sunday, but did you see Melandri’s death wobbles down the straight at over 300 kmh? He rode the wheels of that Pani.
Thanks from Phl

How high level ASBK is, if 48 year man can coming second, and not been racing in years..( nothing to take bayliss, he was/ is still super pilot...but we all coming old, and this is young mans game..)

Watching Melandri's Duc do the worm reminds me of my old Super Bike days, it looks like his swing arm is super soft, and his head angle is ultra steep. Marco has big balls, it's fun to watch him hang onto that bronc, spurring it all the way.
Thanks from able duc

Predicted to be quite windy today (Sunday) so everyone will be effected by the cross winds that will change directions mid day. Hold onto that bronco Marco! And I’m sure Kawasaki will be working on Johno’s troubles.

By the time I pulled over the inside faces of the cans were glowing red and it had melted the plastic sump cover to the point it had caught fire.

I have no warning lights, bike idles perfect but after 5-10 mins of riding it happens again.

Anyone have any ideas? I pulled out the BBS unit and found one wire that that exposed wiring so I wrapped it in insulation tape. Pulled the rear spark plug and nothing obvious.
Same thing happened to my 1199, low speed injector plugging up on the rear cylinder. The quick fix is Red Line injector cleaner in a large dose, if it smooths out at high rpm large throttle setting , thats what your dealing with. The red line will clean it out while your riding. Taking the injector out on the road, and cleaning it out with carb spray and a 9 volt battery would not be my first choice. Good luck.

Most of the top runners are not young. a few in the top end have raced part time in WSBK and IOM as well.

In both First races
Chad D got a high 1:31 lap (sykes got a 1:30)
TB21 got a low 1:33

Thats still pretty close in my books....

ASBK bikes are very slightly modified road bikes with many restrictions to make it affordable, and as such is dominated by Japanese bikes.

At the support race the top ASBK guys were in the low 1:33’s about a second off where the top WSBK guys are.

There are 3 Aussie wild cards all on their ASBK race bikes and doubling up in WSBK and ASBK races Maxwell on an R1 qualified in mid of Superpole 2 infront of a number of WSBK teams including the American red bull Honda team so not bad on essentially road bikes.

Bayliss has been running an ASBK team with some good young guns, and had a brain explosion this year to ride also, crazy really, but a legend all the same. He also does flat track and all sorts of events, I think he just loves riding. His son is also racing in the Aussie super sports, just fun all round I guess.
