Jeans WTF that's nuts

Yes, jeans are allowed, [ride dayers only..]but most guys have leathers anyhoo...
This is the only track like it though, as the race/ director was at pains to point out last time around, and around.

Fuckin oath mate that's unreal all the tracks down this way are leathers or no go

I'm one of the loonies still using jeans, at least I wear two pairs......
The time will come when we all have to wear leather/kevlar, the "fun police" will make sure of that...

Pity you missed it Jarrod, it was a good day, and we managed to get five sessions instead of the usual four. Only two guys down , one on a H*nda cbrrrrr1000rrrrr, flipped it into the fence at the blind lefthander at the entrance end of the complex. I saw the bike in midair, looked pretty messy, but he was okay, and the bike is not too trashed. The other was a 675 Triumph that lowsided coming out of the hairpin, just trying too hard,and caught a 'peg I think.
Rod, you will not see any hard core kneedown riding from me, the thought of catching the ripple strip with my knee has me lifting it back up every time I drop into a corner!
The ZX9 performed well, no issues, if you don't count being baulked off the track at Ducati[turning right out of the valley] and at the end of the straight. Kept it rubber side down though, on both occasions, more lessons learnt...
