Loomies/A272 run Saturday 9th or Sunday 10th April

Post by morpheus20170 on Sun 03 Apr 2011, 19:25

A group of us went to Loomies yesterday and we all had a great time so who is up for a ride to Loomies next Saturday or Sunday leaving Buck Barn McDonalds at around 10.30am, please see map for directions.

Buck Barn to Loomies:

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=218053952361710073630.00049fc3386896e67e074&ll=51.162122,-0.708618&spn=0.378936,0.877533&z=10&iwloc=00049fc3386fb4d69d61a

The 7 day weather forecast is better for Sunday at the moment:

Loomies is near Alton where the A272 crosses the A32 and if you haven't been there already you will love the roads especially the last bit:

See you all soon :0)

Be careful Chimpy, greater lean = less speed especially from the apex as the traction is decreased.
CSS/Twist of the Wrist are great.
You will see the racers using opposite countersteer at the apex to allow them to stand the bike up onto the fuller part of the tyre to drive hard off the apex.

You are well fast enough Chimpy without the need for more lean and from memory of the other day you have no problem leaning either :0)

I just want my friends to stay rubber side down :0)

Who else is coming Saturday or Sunday then?
Hopefully JG, Cabbie, HoHo and Kev but not had any replies to my post to say yes yet :0(
And, we need to decide on which day suits everyone :0)

Give me an A, give me a 2, give me a 7, give me a 2, lol.

would have done, :( but had an unnerving moment on the bike :( went to pull off from the lights as i was accelerating the bike completed shut down with a single warning light, managed to roll off the side of the road and all seemed fine after switching the ignition on and off. When i checked what this single warning light meant it indicated that the bike thought it had been dropped so automatically shuts down :( lucky i didnt have anyone behind me. Rang BMW today and have to take it in for a check up as maybe a faulty sensor bloody great
