diy speed blocks with white vinyl:









it doesn't look too bad, but i think I am going to redo the middle 2 blocks as the plan was to make them smaller as they went back

Cadwell Park naturally  :D

Best off doing a track I know well, then at least the bike is the only variable on the day and the track knowledge is already there.

I cant wait to over take someone on the power instead of getting them on the brakes!

It certainly scrubbed speed off very quickly in that clip.

I thought this was one of his best. last race of the season last year. if he binned it he would have lost the title.

awesome. but hes still a c :censored t.

A lots changed in 20 years but Doohan would turn the front to scrub speed - you see it routinely in BSB if you ever stand at Druids and watch them just before turning in - here's Doohan trying to save the front https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mHAGdSQpRM

Groovy. It's reminding me more and more of my XTZ as they converge into a similar colour scheme.
I was likely gonna get some of these.

so anyways i did about 30 mile on the bike yesterday. No problems this far!


its pretty quick, and the riding modes are quite nice. being a bit wary from the last incident where I spun the rear up I decided to put it into rain mode which softens the power delivery a bit and chops a bit of the top end. Comfortable with how the bike was performing I knocked it back into A mode.

Its pretty fast, not litre sportsbike fast but I would like to think it will have the power to hold its own in any group I choose to ride in. rapid enough that I couldn't really open it up properly without doing silly speeds.  a couple of squirts down slip roads and the bike hauls ass.  I removed the baffle as the bike is not that loud at all. I will take it to the track day but hopefully I will get away without it.

So the bike is ready. nothing left to do. so I decided to muck on with making some graphics this afternoon.




Sort of made it up as I went along, its not fantastic but it will do for a race bike.

Aleix Espagaro, Tom Luthi, Bradley Smith - take you pick. I think he'd lost the plot and something had come loose inside his helmet.
