Hello from France :)

Hi everybody,

After many visits on this forum, I cross the line of subscription

I'm an happy owner of a RC51 SP1, which I only use on track, for training and races (at a rookie level !).
I love riding, but my first pleasure is learning mechanics, working on my SP1 and finding lots of nice parts to install and run together.

My fist goal, at this time, is to prepare the old motorcycle championship for 2019.
So I have one year to finish my second engine, my bike... and improve myself to be a little more faster...

Please don't hesitate to correct my english if you see mistake !

I'll post pictures later : I still have to understand how the forum works

Regards to all !

Yeah : I managed to post

So pictures now

Here is my "second lady", in her first dress, when I bought her
After one week of road riding, I asked my wife to keep the key hidden, until I modify the bike to be only a track bike : too much pleasure, lake of brain... ^^

Then : I love the grey, but I have to change all for track and keeping safe the OEM fairing parts.

I have always thought that biking means also "being watched" : so let's go to the yellow force :P

Some pictures before and after my first crash (water, optimistic braking...)... Funny : the man just in front of me falled two curves after the picture, and I falled the next turn, one curve after...

Then, pictures with repared bike, but not yet re-painted : I was testing my new parts

Finally, pictures for my first speed race, organized in memory of a famous man in the french motorcycle word : Robert Doron. Three days of extrem pleasure and improvement, with my new flashy paint

For this season, more things to come (DHC snorkel, SP2 body throttle with velocity stacks, Moriwaki airbox, ...).
For next year (work in progress...) : Piston JE, Carillo rod, "Revolution" camshift kit, Akrapovic Exhaust full titanium...

Did I said I prefer parts than track ?

Nice Old Harley you got there! Mind if I kick it over?

Welcome!
That's an awesome paint scheme on your track bike. I didn't think I'd ever like yellow on a RC51, but you've done an excellent job of it. The white perfectly accents the yellow. Nice work!

Can you tell me more about 'the old motorcycle championship' you intend on entering? What other bikes will you be racing against?
