Guess what happens next?

Wife and I have been away for a few days and went to a trackday organised by a mailing list I am on. Excelent time was had by all. Jackie went out nearly every session she could and I had 1 session on a friends Guzzi 100 Sport. She came in from the first session and was hating it and not sure if she wanted to go out again - she got better as time went on and was soon coming back in with a grin on her face. Bear in mind she only passed her test 3 months ago and has not been out on her bike much.

That certainly looks like a good shot.
Seem's to be having a little trouble at the moment.
Hope that she stay's with it.

She's not all over the front brake, so I'd say pulled to the edge of the track, checked traffic and continued on.

Glad y'all had fun.

From the bikes attitude, it 'could' be near the oh-oh event, butt depends on whether this wuz early in the games, or after she got the bug and continued on!! I'd like to think she's good to go for another lap!!!

She fell down

And the camera man had run out of power so there are no pictures ;-(

She had actually missed the last corner and run along the grass for a while and come to a stop waiting for a gap in the traffic. As she started to rejoin a combination of too much throttle and damp grass meant the rear wheel started spinning closely followed followed by the bike and down she went, much to the amusement of the onlookers at the clubhouse. No harm down and round she went again.
