Ok, we’ve had enough rain….no I mean it….we’ve had enough!!!

Hi all,

We had a wet ride yesterday and this is why…….

And its still hanging around…..

Motorcycle racing began again this past weekend with round one of the World Superbike round at Phillip Island. Britain’s Leon Haslam (Suzuki) has come out on top of the championship with Michael Fabrizio (Xerox Ducati) in second place.

Xerox Ducati’s other rider, 2009 championship runner-up Noriyuki Haga, had a warmup session accident with Motorad BMW’s Ruben Xaus (….a polite way of saying Xaus unfortunately crashed into Haga at 150mph…) which caused Xaus to not compete in the race, and Haga’s bike got a complete rebuild.

The finish between Haslam and Fabrizio was so close (0.004 seconds) that a photo was called for to see who won….and this is what 0.004 seconds looks like (at 295kmh)

So how did the Australian’s go?   After round one Troy Corser (BMW) now sits in 8th, Joshua Brookes (Honda) is 17th, Andrew Pitt (BMW) 18th, and Chris Vermulen (Kawasaki) unfortunately crashed out of both races.

MotoGP kicks off in April from Qatar.  Testing has just been completed in Sepang, Malaysia and Valentino Rossi set a record lap time of 2min 0.271 sec which is 0.654 under his first test time, and 0.247 under his official record from qualifying in last October’s Malaysian GP.

In other news, today Crusty Demon rider Seth Enslow broke the record for jumping a Harley Davidson today…reaching a distance of 56 meters.

So that’s it from us today……have a great week, stay safe and have fun,

And so we now come to this weeks winner of Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of the week….and she’s a repeat winner, she’s been responsible for a huge amount of web searches that have lead people to this blog, and if you do a google image search for her name, this blog currently comes up as number 4.

She is an American actress and dancer, the daughter of an actress, model, dancer, and an actor…she has been featured in music videos, and is most known for her role as “Andie” in Step Up 2.  She is Brianna Evigan.

    Hi Anthony,

    I just noticed your blog address, great stuff!
    Curse this rain – was keen to get out today. Sure has been a wet start to 2010.
    Street Triple would be superb ride, spot on in IMO.
    Love your partners work – especially the colour which leaps off the screen!
    I’m trying to learn my new camera atm…

    regards,

    Thanks IC, thankfully the rain seems to have ended down here…(for now)

    Yep, the Street Triple is a great bike, love the look of it and would love to take one for a test ride some day.

    I’ll let Vicki know that you love her work. I’m just in awe of what she does!!

    all the best with the new camera and look forward to your next blog post!!

    cheers,

    Anthony
