2021 SOAR Racing Round 6

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 Lost Era and Old Folks!! […]

2021 SOAR Racing Round 4

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 but towards the end I […]

2021 SOAR Racing Round 5

That’s me on 73 BTW! 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. I got good starts in my qualifying races and managed to finish in the top 10 in both but the rear […]

2021 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 […]

2021 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 […]

2021 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 […]

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 […]
