can any bikes get on there? or just motards?
they let any bikes on there i believe, but due to the tightness of the track (it's a go kart track remember) if you're not on a motard, it's gonna suck.

something else to note guys, motard sessions will most likely only be 10 minutes long if there are people hiring karts there.
Sth Morang is the only go-kart track in Vic that lets tards on, but their main priority is people hiring go-karts.
the karts will have longer sessions than us and will always be given priority.
but for $35 you can't exactly complain

I'll be riding my nugget 250 on the best performance tyres available (arrowstax). They said they'd let me ride the R6 there, although they warned me about being humilated by motards.

i was worried id be the only person on arrowmaxes. not too fussed now. in that case i might see if i can come down. depending on work id say probably. 90% inners


nearly forgot, is this like a track with a 50 meter straight? or is it at least 200? just wondering what im getting into lol

it's not so much the length of the straight that's going to be a concern to you on the ciblet (although it's only about 150 metres i reckon).
it's going to be the hairpin sections that will suck.
they're like very tight switch backs.

It's retarded tight. I'm either getting the 250 backed in, or taking it home in pieces (or some combination thereof). The tighter ones are just flat out too tight to take conventionally, esp on arrowmaxes.

I'm in the same boat as rich I reckon, I'm either gonna have a massive win learning to back it in, or a massive fail. It's gonna be fun!

I think the smaller the bike in these sort of situations the better. The Sun city one in Townsville is really good for buckets and motards, anything else doesnt get to show off the speed

Agree completely Luke!

CB: I don't want to sound discouraging, or condescending.. or like a dick or anything. BUT!

I probably wouldn't do your first trackday at Sth Morang, on Arrowmaxes. The guys who are going to be there are going to be going pretty fast (slow on a tard around there is still fast on a cibby) and the arrowmaxes don't leave much room for error if you're pushing it. I don't want to sound like I'm saying "I'm such a sik kunt I can do it but you can't", but in all honesty it's a pretty bad idea.

I'm going out there with full knowledge that I'm probably going to have a pretty big crash.
