Sunday lookin great. Get that k100 up and a radar guy who is keen. You will bust 400mph I reckon without breaking into a sweat. Does JoeW have any interest in the big days ?

Can't get up the hill today for the huge wind forecast as I have to work. Gutted about it, but don't think I would have had a radar guy anyway.

I will try get up tomorrow as there is still good wind forecast
