RC213V-S at TT 2016



Can't wait to see this fly down the streets with Bruce Anstey aboard!
Interesting that Mr. Padgett had to UPGRADE Bike
“We have had to beef the bike up for the TT course and we can't get anything off the shelf so everything has had to be made bespoke. Things like the wheels, the K-Tech forks, the rear shocks, the brakes and the radiator guards have all had to be specially made.”
Now I just have to find a streaming site online.

They're generally ok, but prefer to load the van with beer and bbq and sit in a field with mates waiting for the bikes to start, it is the best place ever and can't imagine being anywhere other than the Isle of Man during TT week.......

I believe this is why they changed out the stock suspension. Don't think Mr. Ohlins had this in mind for GP road racing suspension. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cFjEz4qZAE

Found it... wasn't the RC bike;

Anstey, a 10-time TT winner, came off his Honda Superbike machine at Keppel Gate, but walked away with a suspected minor ankle injury.
It's unsure if he'll be fit to race this weekend.
Keppel Gate is a left-hander that marks the start of the steep descent off the mountain towards the finish line in Douglas.
Anstey was riding his regular bike, not the one that is based on the MotoGP machine that he has also been trialling this week.
