SOAR Racing Round 5

I’ve fallen behind with updating the site again so I’ll jump to round 5 while it’s fresh in my memory and then go back to 3 and 4 later. Josh’s wrist was feeling pretty good so Josh was riding and was keen to do the 3 hour endurance race on Friday afternoon so we roped […]

SOAR Racing Round 3

Last weekend we went up to MotoPark and my middle guy, Jake was out practicing a set of 3 jumps that he liked. When he decided to finish off the lap and go back to the paddock he forgot about a new nasty jump and massively over shot it to land on the up face […]

SOAR Racing Round 2

After doing the track day and then helping me last round, Josh got the bug and signed up to do race school on Friday practice so he could get his race license for this round! He found a race prepped 2003 SV650 pretty much ready to roll, sold his street SV650 on Tuesday then had […]

SOAR Racing Round 1

First race for me since 1998! I was anxious and nervous for pretty much the whole weekend apart from when I was on the bike. Friday was a KSR track day and Josh came to that on his road SV650, we were running the Screaming Alien layout in reverse (CCW). Track day went well, conditions […]

CBR600RR Rebuilt!

Next on the ‘to do’ list – the belly pan. I picked this one up from Milton with a couple of other damaged parts, it’s in better shape than the one I had but the same mount tab on the left is broken! The guy that gave me it said he thought he had the […]

CBR600RR Rebuild 7

We left off with waiting for the paint on the upper fairing to dry before removing the masking tape … again. This time it came out great so I got on with making a white number plate. I wasn’t sure whether to put the plate off to one side as there aren’t as many curves […]

CBR600RR Rebuild 6

I’ve been making slow progress with the rebuild, mainly painting the fairing and it’s been a bit frustrating so I haven’t felt much like posting – I realize now that was a mistake and it would have been better to document the stuff that didn’t work out. On the plus side, I have installed the […]

Hunter 400 V-Tail Quad

It has been too cold for me to paint the fairing for the CBR600RR and not long ago I found a deal on Kijiji for a drone kit that I couldn’t pass up so I have been putting in some time on the drones lately.I don’t care to remember how many years ago it was […]

CBR600RR Rebuild 5

There’s not a lot of room in the trailer for painting the wheels and I wanted to be able to rotate them and preferably be able to get to both sides while painting rather than do one side and then turn it over. I found a tube in the garage that fit through the hubs […]

CBR600RR Rebuild 4

I took a little break from posting due to some personal issues, I still made a bit of progress and am starting to get back on track. For a start I got a great deal on a mint set of fairings. They also came with a tank cover and seat cowl that should work great! […]
