Still on the front brake and already tipped in so 'scrub a rub' is highly likely !

Yes quite....let's face it, its name and the sign at the top that says 'Zig Zag hill ' really give no clue as to what might be coming  :D

I did warn a few, that black BMW gave us a load of abuse at the bottom of the hill as well del. We just gave him a friendly wave.... I did not know about the Kawasaki at that point either.... All ended up OK with no injuries are any damage. Zig Zag is a difficult road but its just slow, no front brake and put your feet down if you need too.

I am a one of a kind and as mr dawkins rightly says should never be compared to anyone else :o :o. i remember the last run i did there. I sat at the back and watched the drama unfold in front of me.  I am glad everyone had a good time and thankfull nothing major went wrong. A lot of it due to pauls planning and execution of the day, i have no doubt :)
