    Hello again and another welcome! Jenx's car has a companion now!

    Catch up on Sunday! You'll have to post up some pics of your car....when you wash it that is... Or you might find a "wash me" comment on your rear window one Wednesday night.

    Hi Ally, glad you enjoyed the cruise, we all enjoyed your company and NO you didn't hold anyone up. You were in front of me a lot of the time and holding it all togther with consummate ease.

    thanks guys, i must admit i thought I was going well, until we turned onto the road at mundairing weir, I crapped myself, and all I could think, was don't slow down! don't hold anyone up! Mal made it even worse buy driving super quick up that road, Having a well deserved glass of red wine now! Phew!

    Yeah, Mundaring Weir Rd can have that effect on people.
    Bet the ute driver crapped himself too when 6 MPS's flew past him.

    Sorry about that Ally. Please don't feel that you need to do anything uncomfortable during a cruise. Even if someone in front hooks into a couple of corners, we always steady up on the straight bits so the group stays together. It's normal for the group to stretch out then bunch up again like a big rubber band as we each do our thing. The important thing is to go your own pace and never feel pressured to drive beyond your limits. We'd never expect you to do that, in fact we'd be disappointed if you did.

    You did very well today and certainly weren't holding anyone up.

    Hey Mal

    All good, just that Mundairing Road was a bit scary, all those tress and twist and turns and sharp drops to the bottom I had a great time ! Thanks for being in the lead and planning a great day. Has anyone heard how the person that crashed their bike is?

    First cruise Ally? The twist and turns are the fun bit! But still have to be treated with respect as well as the car. I've made a post on PSB but have yet to have anyone comment that was related to the incident. If I see a comment or a new post I will be sure to inform members on here. I've written off a Superbike before, know a little of the feeling (although I didn't have any gear on) Hopefully all is well and he/she makes a full recovery.

    Hi Andre

    Cool, I will wait till you post re: if he is ok, yeah first cruise, but now have caught the "cruise bug" and can't wait to do another

    I think you guys were right re: my tyre pressure, am going to increase it first thing, as it felt a bit spongy on those tight corners on Mundairing road, i guess it added to my trepidition on taking those corners so quickly, Mal and Di thought that maybe I should start by increasing it to 3f6 psi, any thoughts?

    Yeah 36psi should be well within spec, usually the harder the tyre the firmer the ride and on a dry surface, grippy too. You might find on the forum what other typical 3 owners run theirs at. It will help in cornering though. Not to mention slight performance, economy and handling are all increased with appropriate psi. Since you're not in the middle of winter, harder will be better. I look forward to the next cruise, hopefully for you meet a few more members too
