Cheers boys, it's been fun.


I have now sourced a replacement frame so when all my maintenance on the race bike is done I will change the frame of the Fazer and put it back on the road,,it's sat in road trim now,, I may sell the blade and keep the Gen 2 fazer as I kind of am stretched to it now.  :lol

Oulton park was the last race,, I entered the open too as we only had one race, wet track qualified 20th in the open then not long after was our qualifying and I got onto the front row, 3rd,  from about 30 bikes,,later on the open race  I fucking dropped it on the warm up lap, broke my handle bar off, foot peg, shifter..
We got it ready in amazing time thanks to mates and missed the warm up lap for my race so they put me at the back of grid,,I started 28th and finished 15th, 5th in class,,a good day I suppose, not hurt, lol
I finished 3rd in our streetstock class overall, 8 trophys,  very very happy and continually surprised how life throws these opportunities my way , I shocked myself, my friendsthink I am crazy,well,,,,,,maybe  :lol

So out with the internet and buy the cheapest 2004 R1 so that all my wheels, engine protectors fit and found a little beauty, a bit of work to get fairings to fit, replace broken engine mounting bolt,,I had bought some R1 upgraded forks for 5he Fazer so they went straight on,the bikehad a £1,000 rear ohlins shock, nice, a £200 ohlins steering damper and a £400 GPS lap timer.


At Pembrey first time I had clutch slipping problems so I have learnt how to change the clutch, new plates in.
All this for £3200

Then sad news, my frame cracked,  :'( 
I have thrown it down the road a bit mind,,cant complain, its been brilliant nearly two seasons of thrashing and crashing.
Until this I have never fell off a bike but at this you get used to it, but circuits are much safer than roads,  well over a hundred and lose the front on the brakes, slide and slide and see your bike bouncing, jumping down the field,haha,,then get a 3rd trophy next day, good job I had a spare front fairing made up.

Fair,  or not fair ?
We out in the country know nothing of a congestion charge,
My mate in his old mitsushi payer took his wife into London on a Friday and came home on Sunday night,
He got an invoice for entering a congestion emissions zone twice, at £250.00 per trip, yep £500.00 for the weekend.
We never got any notice of this low emissions zone, no letters ,nothing.
This must happen to thousands of innocent drivers,,bad shit really.
