Formula Xtreme
« on: October 08, 2012, 09:21:29 AM »

Hyosung are now the Formula Xtreme FX 400 Australian Champions ;D

Has been an awesome season riding the GT 650 in the Ultralights class.

Had a few wins a few crashes and a heap of fun along the way, we've travelled far and wide this year to compete at mostly interstate meetings.

The Hyo is now off to get the frame straightened as I had an off at Mallala 3 weeks ago and found its quite badly bent, which explains why I've been struggling over the  last few weekends.

We got a month off now before the last round of FX so looking forward to a bit of a break.

I can post some pics of GT650 racer at Mac Park the weekend prior, none from his FX though.

Shit.. bent frame? Maybe I should get mine checked considering I came off in an almost identical manner on the same corner at Mallala.  :o

Oh.. and congrats again! It was a pleasure racing with the future Australian Champion the weekend before  ;D

GT650racer in action:



GT650racer is in the white alpinestars center of the pic. I'm in the RST's next to him. Take note that GT's bike doesn't have a Hyosung bum!




And one of me for good measure :P


All photos thanks to my lovely wife Mel :)

Thanks Adrian, as you know when it comes to computers I'm a luddite :(

If something goes wrong the best I can do is turn the thing off then on again (oh that makes me qualified to be IT consultant ;D)

I think it would be well worth us checking your bike with straight edges, mine is seriously bent! rear wheel & front wheel out of allignment by 30mm.

It really is a pig to ride at the moment doesn't want to go round left hand corners, I was 4 seconds a lap slower at winton than last time I was there.

Anyway it will be sorted and measures put in place to check everytime it gets crashed in future.

We can talk about getting it checked on Friday night whilst dribbling shit about racing :)

Worked out what was causing my downshift problems.. Missing the circlip that holds the gear lever onto the shaft :s we made a makeshift one out of lockwire, worked a treat!

At this rate you'll be putting me out of a job!
