    I usually run my tyre pressures at 40psi. Its a pretty firm ride but feels better cornering.

    Anyway Ally, there's never any need to feel pressed beyond your capabilities - that applies to everyone. It's supposed to be a "cruise" and ultimately relaxing, not a circuit of Nurburgring, even accepting that the open road is a chance to blow out a few cobwebs. Anyone is entitled to yell "wait for me!". It's also easy to get hung up behind other slouches and minnows and that can leave you way behind through no fault of your own. Better to yell help than finish up like that bike wrapped around a tree. I think we all drive prudently and within sensible limits and with respect for other road users.

    Hi Ally,

    Welcome to the forum!!! Great to see another female MPS driver out there!!!

    Sounds like you had a lot of fun yesterday!! We had a cruise here too yesterday. I love being able to give the beast a "spirited" run and have some fun through the twisties - blow out the cobwebs from the boring drives to and from work every day .

    Linda

    Thanks for all the comments and all the welcome messages

    Pumped up my tyre pressure today and went down to Mandurah to test it out, made a heap of difference, so thanks for all your input guys, much appreciated!

    Am totally excited thinking about another cruise

    That was my first cruise with the club as well, Ally, and you couldn't wipe the smile off my face for hours afterwards.
    You were in the car with Di when I was saying farewell, but I made noises about me organising a track skills/tuning day down at the airport for early 2011.

    Helmet essential. Stilletto Jimmy Choo driving shoes optional ;-)

    Thread hijack, but can an Ex MPS 6 owner come too?
    R36 - Just like an MPS6 except with a growly V6

    Can't see a problem with that.
    It'd be great to see the VW in action.
    Especially if can convince the new owner of your 6 to come and play too.
