A quick post on the run...

because I'm still on holiday and still relaxing (just).

MotoGP - Jarez was run last night and it was one of the most entertaining races this season... ok, it's only the second race of the season, but it had it all. The funniest part of the race was when Rossi raised his hand in victory to claim second place, only to realise he still had another lap to go. Made me laugh. I was very happy to see two Yamaha riders on the podium.

Speaking of Yamaha - My bike is currently in the workshop getting a post crash checkup. Yes, I had a slight "off". I came to grief on a sandy corner. There are a few scratches on the bike, a tear in my new backpack and a mighty big scuff mark on the right shoulder of my jacket. Awwwww. :( I must have damaged the fuel line, just after the fuel pump, and yesterday while I was riding it to a safe location the fuel gushed forth and covered me in premium unleaded. I don't think I panicked, but I did jump from the bike onto the nearest patch of grass to make sure there were no flames. A slight bit of smoke but all was good. Phew. 24hours, a check-up and 3 showers later I still smell like petrol... yes, there was a hell of a lot of fuel covering me.

Muzbot,

It's null point for me this week in the D-Challenge.

If only Jorge Lorenzo too Valentino in those final laps and Toseland bumped into 5th, I would have had an enviable score.

Shame about the Kurri Kid ... torpedoed by a Japanese submarine.

Oran Park today was even better than the MotoGP.

Looks like we both have some stories next time we meet.

That petrol smell is hard to shake.

Holy Heck! You ok mate? (apart from the petrol smell - you know, I used to love that smell when I was a kid...and no, I didn't sniff petrol habitually, only when we were filling the car up). :-)

Danny Pedrosa is so tiny. I also think he's really just a motorbike riding robot, LOL
