    Hey guys and gals.

    Gday,
    New guy here. My name is Ben, 39, like long walks along the beach.....
    I'm riding a 2015 GSXR 750 with a few bits of bling on it. Bought it for the sole purpose of getting some track time under my belt. I've booked in for my first day on the 26th of this month along with the first level of CSS in June. Will get as many track days in as possible between the two.
    I'm thinking if (when) the track bug bites, the Suzuki will become the track only bike and I might look at something else for the road. Been reading here for the past few days solid. Look forward to catching up with everyone at Eastern Creek some time.
    Was good meeting you yesterday Nick !

    Just booked in for the 5th Feb too...

    Hey, thanks for the welcome guys. First track day so I just booked in to the white, beginners group. I have no idea what to expect pace wise. Booked in for yellow on the 5th.

    Won't take long for the track bug to bite. I'd say 1st session 2nd lap

    Hey Ben!!
    Is there a reason you booked the CSS day so far out? If you're going to come to the track anyhow, It might be an idea to develop some good habits early, rather than having to un-learn?
    The CSS guys picked up some big errors of mine when I started!!
    Look forward to seeing you out at the track at any rate!

    Was more a timing thing. I do shift work and my position doesn't allow me to take holidays at will. January was booked out, April clashes with work, so June was the best I could do.

    Ah, righto! Who'd work for a living, eh??
    Keen to hear how you like the track. Hopefully catch you out there on the 5th too.

    as has been said... cocaine is an easier addiction to kick (and probably cheaper lol)
