I am glad I started with the stock IRC's for the first few track days while I learnt the feel of the bike moving around as the pace went up.

Yeah. It is dangerous out there but it beats driving a car (most of the time). Deer are what I worry about....

TechSpec is another tank grip that works well. It has for me and I am pretty sure that the California Superbike school uses it also on their BMWs also.

I have had it on my 2012 CBR and it works great. I just used a hair dryer to put it on and that was it. They come molded to fit the bike and it went on easily. They are very comfortable and do not tear up the leathers. I have never slipped using them when I hang a cheek off.

After coming back from the motherland and committing to my beloved, I think my street riding career is over. When she dropped me off at the airport, she gave me a sanctified crucifix as a parting gift and told me to attach it to my motorcycle. She was almost in tears when she observed my love of riding and that she didn't want to deprive me of it. She always thought that my circuit exploits were cool, but dreaded the fact that I commuted on my bike everyday. It's sombering for me to give up daily riding. But it was excruciating for me to see her pained expression when she spilled her heart out about my riding.

I just love the smell of Taiwanese cardboard in the morning.

Gonna love the 10hz setup.

The final lap and an all time PB.

Was a bit glassy eyed to say goodbye the the most user friendly, reliable and trouble free motorcycle ever built.
It never put a foot wrong.

Honda got the recipe just right with the MC41 at a bargain price.

Collie Motorplex 20th January 2013.


A few laps into the first Group3 session,
The crashed R6 had just passed the Black ZX10, me on the green bike (following the bike with the rear facing camera) while puffing smoke,
next thing the R6 dropped its juices all over and spat the rider in the chicane.

You'll see me try to signal but in group3 you never close the throttle unless a dire emergency as the pace is pretty high and there is a pack of riders behind.

Bit of a shakey start to the day on a foreign bike that i'd never even ridden, first few secs of the vid shows I was flying into the lefthander before the smoke screen started.

Track was closed for an hour while the cleanup took place in 35 degree heat.

Rest of the day went well.



Getting used to the feel of Supercorsa SC1 's love em, can even slide the rear with confidence.
