    Optimistic sellers

    Thread Starter: Rcktfsh

    F5ís first ever brand new bike!

    Thread Starter: F5 Dave

    . . . Will have to be deferred as I’ve gone & done something else. See picture (haven't taken one myself yet, this is from past owner). My rational is that one probably won’t be able to new register a 2 stroke in this increasingly worrisome cotton wool environment. One can’t buy a new 2 stroke,...

    suzuki Series, not the Tri Series

    Thread Starter: jellywrestler

      Some technical infringements in one new class which were apparently sorted before they went out on track

      Indeed, but they got off on the grass at that last start but the CTAS coverage wasn't close enough to show us exactly what happened, and they had a good comeback from that - well done boys .

      His favourite action? What about you Kick were you happy with the weekend?

      I watched a bit of the CTAS coverage and that was pretty good compared to previous efforts including the post race interviews.
