It's a sweet bike for a street model alright, lots of very tasty bits on it too. Ohlins shocks/forks, Brembo brakes, Corsa Diablo tires, slipper clutch, steering dampener Marchesini wheels....Even without the 200 hp engine she's a treat. I offered to load the bike into the transport trailerafter the show closed, never got a key handed to me....go figure

So with my winnings from the article, I revamped my track gear with a new Alpinstars Motegi 1 piece racing suit. On sale through Parts Canada at half off. I figure if I never get over there to witness a MotoGP event, I can at least wear the leathers LOL. Anybody need a red, white and black Honda logo (size xl/ Euro 54) 2 piece leather sport suit? Got a heck of a deal on one...

Was a great day yesterday all round. Met another dealer from Calgary, Ed from Bow Cycle North, great guy and awesome vintage bike. He runs in the intermediate class on his "little" 125cc 2 stroke (with the modern 600s and litre bikes) and does that sucker haul! Very nicely restored and the workmanship on it is exemplary.

Some more action shots from yesterday. Sorry, can't burn your eyes with any shots of me, no track photogs on duty yesterday, Grrrrr.
In the last photo, the white bike with the cat's eye front fairing is a remarkably well built Ducati. Never got a solo shot of him as he was always in a group at my location. Hadn't the proper lens to take a close-up in the pit but the go fast and chassis bits he's put on this bike is utterly amazing (and no doubt very expensive).
To give you an idea what goes in to actually racing a track bike if you're not sponsored, the instructor I worked with took a year off to just race after selling his business and ran independent at as many races as he could here and around the US and Canada. He spent $28,000 in tires alone! Don't worry, that ain't happenin with me...

Why are they all dressed up like spacemen? Motorcycling riding is casual affair except for those that wear the leather vests and patches.

Oooh, that Castrol livery is very tasty!
If it's a track bike now I'd think track bodywork would be a really good idea, chances are pretty good it's going to see the pavement once or twice (maybe that's just me..) - save that nice stock stuff.

One easy cold tire low side and my fairing looked like this:


Lucky the rest of the fairing pretty well looks like that already
