Had a fun weekend at Taupo, as I did not have any spannering to do other than taking off the fairing due to broken bracket I had time to wander around... Steve Bryant ( aka Sidecar Bob) owns both bikes and his missus 'swings'....:huh I had a ride on the R100, needs some suspension and brake work but he is faster than me... Kanes R100 is plenty fast but developed a bad vibration so he called it a day ...hope hes sorted for Barry Sheen in 4 weeks. Vince Burrel on his very fast Guzzi. post classic 500 Morini...the one to beat in 500 class. My fav outfit a 1955 Triumph. they have taken it to the IOM. Young Tyler Lincoln, up and coming, not yet 15 on his 75 kg RS 125 Honda with 45 HP....:eek1 and the Mighty Ninety, went really well and I looked up my times from April and have improved by 7 seconds a lap.... .check out my $150 ride on stand...uber cool.
