Topics I've Started
22 March 2015 - 08:44 PMThings are a little quiet on here so though I would try stir some conversation by putting up some old photos I have from forum meets / rides. Some faces are still on here and you may recognise then. Some have unfortunately disappeared over the years. Nevertheless I just thought it might be a giggle.......
Not all rideouts were in the nice sunny weather:
20 March 2015 - 08:20 AMAnybody watch Bike World on the telly box last night and see the review they did and the new Kawasaki H2 and H2R? :blink: WOWZERS!!!
Looks like an awesome piece of kit, both of them. Even the guy reviewing it seemed totally speechless by it. Very much doubt I will ever get to experience one though :(
26 February 2015 - 09:37 PMJust can't get this new bike clean!! Lowered seat. Lightweight. Smoked lenses. But one careful owner??? My ass; have you seen the rear tyre, no chicken strips on that bugger!!!
Just bought this as a CAT B. Rear end took the heat (rather than fire itself) and smashed and melted rear plastics and electrics within the subframe / seat unit. But other than that, and some other bodywork melting and deforming, the rest of the bike looks good. So looks like it is going to be a track bike build :D
Also picked up an RSV1000 ....... or whatever they are called (not sure how to spell Aprillia / Aprilia) but this really is just to break for spare parts:
22 February 2015 - 06:07 PMAnybody else watch the opening round of the WSBK today? Was some good racing with great finishes to both races. 1/100th between 1st and 2nd places in the second race!!
Looks like the Brits are going to dominate as both races had Brits 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, and in the first race there were 6 Brits on the top 10. Alex Lowes though continued his disappointing form in WSBK though with a poor finish in the 1st race and then a retirement in the 2nd. Real shame for him as he was such a good performer in BSB and has also been practising well before this 1st round at Philip Island.
18 October 2014 - 09:09 PMThis weekend is the last weekend of BSB (British Super Bikes), at Brands Hatch. First of a 3 round final meet was today and the last 2 rounds are tomorrow. Was billed as being a final battle for the title between Shakey Byrne and Ryuichi Kiyonari, with Byrne going in to the final weekend with a 12 point lead.
But unfortunately Kiyonari highsided in morning practice and ended up with an undisplaced fracture of the left collarbone ruling him out of todays race, although Alex Lowes seemed to think he could have manned up and rode as it was a wet race and would take less toll on the body :pardon: Not sure I'd have fancied it.
So that looked like it was going to be handed to Shakey on a plate even if Kiyo managed to make it to the grid for the 2 races tomorrow......... but then Shakey lowsided in todays race. No injuries for Shakey so he should be fully fit tomorrow, riding against an injured Kiyo, but at least it means that there is a slight possibility for a battle for the title still.
More twists and turns than an episode of Hollyoaks :rolleyes:
