Honda Collection Hall - October 2016 *** PICTURE HEAVY ***

A selection of pics taken with the guys from Tyga Performance, whilst they were over last weekend for the Motegi Moto GP, which some might like to see.

It seems each year the selection of historic bikes on display varies; the Endurance RC51 & RC45 were missing this year.

Being 2-stroke nuts especially, they drooled over the amazing collection of bikes. I don't think there was any question I asked they couldn't answer about the historical significance of the bikes we looked at - Walking encyclopedias!

This NSR250SP 1998 model had approx 20,000km so it's used, but had been painstakingly restored too.



This CBR400RR was also super sweet. Again, with average mileage but beautifully restored as well.



They put on a display of historic race bikes whose engines they started on Saturday early evening, warmed up then revved, to the delight of all the bike nuts attending the Moto GP weekend.



One of the halls has road bikes on display. Nowhere near all the bikes Honda has ever produced, but always an interesting selection to look at, all pristine of course!





The NR750 was a firm favourite, not least as Tyga have one of their very own in their collection of bikes, so it's a machine they know well of which I've heard fascinating stories of their experiences of riding & ownership.

8 valves and oval pistons. Apparently nobody can make these piston rings and Honda has no stock left, so if anybody is unlucky enough to break an NR engine.... yikes!



We each got to sit on an RVC212.



Lots of amazing historical race bikes to look at:







The guys particularly enjoyed seeing stuff like this closely:



Apparently it's crazy difficult to match the semi flourescent paint shade on this Doohan 1994 bike.

Afterward we trekked around a car park or two, admiring some of the rare machinery that people had ridden to the Moto GP.

Was surprising to see so many 2-stroke race replicas of the 1990's, as well as NC30 & 35's, etc.

This was a particularly rare and beautiful example of a tastefully modified Suzuki GT750.
