Getting the YZ250F ready for 2023

Stu

Since we didn’t get out on the dirt bikes at all last year, I’m determined to go up to MotoPark at least once this year. The older kids are both over 18 so I don’t need to provide bikes and equipment etc for them, I’d love for them to come […]

2022 SOAR – Round 6

Stu

Technical layout – my favourite. Lost the front end in turn 2 in Am Old Folks on Sunday but got back on and managed to finish the race – leathers were scuffed up nasty on the left elbow and hip but the new Shark helmet didn’t get marked, very happy […]

2022 SOAR – Round 3

It was long layout and I struggled to find grip and confidence in turn 5, the second hairpin left. The practice day was wet so I was out on the B bike with the wet tires on – it was great! Danny loaned some wet tires to Heather so we […]

2022 SOAR – Round 2

We had to wait for Josh to finish work so left for Grand Bend early on Thursday evening and had asked our pit buddy to save us a spot since last year was mayhem. When we got there, we found that our buddy had fobbed us off to pit with […]

2022 SOAR Racing – May Practice

Stu

First opportunity to test the new A bike was at a private practice day that Danny sorted out. I threw the bike in Danny’s trailer and we headed out the night before but when we offloaded the bikes, I found that my front triple stand hit the upper fairing so […]

2004 CBR600RR #2

Stu

After selling the ZX6R this bike was listed on FB for a good price and since it’s the exactly same year, make and model as my other bike they can share parts, so I did a deal. It came fully race prepped with, The grey paint is just primer so […]

2021 SOAR Racing Round 6

Stu

The final round of the 2021 season, a special round with a 6 hour endurance on the Friday and then full races on Saturday and Sunday. It was my favourite Technical layout and I had my best two races of the season on Saturday – top ten finishes in both […]

2021 SOAR Racing Round 4

Stu

Josh wanted to do an endurance race and offered his bike to use so we enlisted Danny and entered team Old Fast Slow. The endurance race is 3 hours long, the team that has completed the most laps at the end is the winner. We ran 20 minute sessions each […]
