  • Race bike in my garage!!!

    Hey all, Calvin's just dropped round with the race bike. Looking pretty good for the season.

    Though I'd put these up cause not much else is going to be seen on the track other than the tail pipe.

                It was a short day for me :cry:

                Lost the front on the left hander, made a mess of the new paint work :cry: I felt really comfortable and I don't know what went wrong :?:

                Oh well that's racing, better luck next time 8)

                    i was watching you beforehand and you seemed to be doing pretty good...i left to get ready for my next session and saw you and the bike returning to the pits on the back of a trailer :shock:

                    as you said, shit happens :!: at least you walked away from it and hopefully the damage aint too bad.

                          oh man. thats shitty.

                          Have they resurfaced the track yet? and that left hander ate me also apparently it has a reputation of being a little slippery.

                          at least u'll be back to fight next time.

                            Well at least I got some positivies out of the day :?

                            The bike was feeling really good 8) I was going around at 85% effort, due to new track surface and running new type of tyre (Dunlop 208GP). I was breaking early and not very hard, just working on lines and refferance markers etc, but was doing 65 Seconds last couple of laps, with any luck and if I can stay upright should be able to drop times by a second or two, fingers crossed.

                            So what happened? Fuck knows, was taking the left hander and the front just washed out :cry:
                            The main damage is to the rear sub frame and fuel tank. The rear sub frame and exhaust is pushed to the right by around 6" and the fuel tank has been pushed down below fuel tank cover.
                            The fairings and new paint work is slightly second hand, I have repaired the fairings today, well I got a fibreglass repair kit and refitted all the broken panels back together again, just require rub and paint and resticker numbers etc.
                            That's racing, and I will learn from it, no pain np gain (that's what they say) :roll:
