A ride report from Karl (Skidoooo)
« on: January 04, 2014, 09:37:57 AM »
Whilst this is a ride report of an attempted IBA run, it is Karl's comments at the end under the heading "When should we pull the pin" that are worth noting.

From the IBA forum under IBA Australia sub forum:

IBA #38035
FarRider #189
Ulysses #42456

I think it is relevant for any sort of riding or driving.  You don't have to be doing distance events to be too fatigued or lacking enough focus to be safe to continue.

Excellent example of FR rule #1 at work  :clap  :clap

Karl's exploits on his 150cc are leaving his GTR1400 green with envy....... :grin
