it was only sideways in one pic, grip looks excellent .... :o :D :D

Believe me, it was SLIPPERY on top and with the VERY PEAKY power of the SC 500, I couldn't really open the throttle hard until I got it straightened up........hence, not much sideways........LOL !!......in the OLD days on oil it was much easier.......these days I can't really hook in until the tracks dry out a little......Very Frustrating at times......
Here's a shot from Nepean, earlier this year, when the track is dry. ;D ;D ;) ;)

True enough.........however, already running 2 head gaskets.........#55 Dennis Whilesmith said his 250 was quicker than his 360 on the day......
