Which com with radial brakes,,waiting for pads,,,and have now fitted clip.ons,,so looks a bit more race,,I got some odd looks in the paddock and on the grid..especially when I beat them on their R1 or Zx10  :lol .so looking forward to testing the new setup,,we have practice day next Friday, Snetterton then Saturday and Sunday racing.come see,,I am the old bugger getting in the it way  :lol

Well I raced the tarmac tracks last year, one incident, Cadwell, got rammed, 2 broken ribs ECT,, but only missed one race weekend.
Second race meet this year, last week at Cadwell,, practice day went onto grass, dropped it,,screwing fairing and fibreglass, scrutineered for Saturday and Sunday races ok..
Sunday I got two 3rds in my class, well chuffed, got some silverware.Fazer gen 2 went well,can't be many with trophies.

I test my rear wheel on the bike, put it up on paddock stand  and run it through the gears up to high revs,,,it does not jump or vibrate,,good enough so far

Got the covers off my gen 2, battery would not go, trickle charge, no good,, jump leads =started,, so will see if trickle charge will save battery, 5 year old moto batt, I have high hopes,,, if not will be getting a lightweight one.

I have ridden to Donnington many times in the rain and back, watching moto gp,  100miles, I didn't mind it,, be careful.. 150 miles to Harrogate a few times,  wet is ok ,  cold is a no no. Now heated grips rule...
  On longtrips , I start careful then k relax and can really get a move on as you learn the safe level

Yes Dude, all fixed up, three races since the smash, bike has been brilliant, threatening me three times of a highside but I hung on, lol.
Had a fantastic duel with an R1 last race at Thruxton , I managed to pass under him about 120 on a long bend, I was pleased only to run out of fuel on last lap, doh, all good fun.
These bikes really work well on track, main upgrade is rear shock .
