So I arrive at an aquaintances place to check out the TZ750 race bike he is building, envious expression, and propped up in his lounge is this SP1 race bike, one of two imported to New Zealand, signed by Aaron Slight and taken for a few laps to check it out. Very nice and more envy for me.

Pretty cool! So your pal actually ran this bike?

No, he bought it after it had been down quite badly on track. Rebuilt, that's why he got Slighty to check it over. It would have been a great conversation as he was pointing out all the extra race mods etc

Met a super nice Kiwi (aren't they all?) at the Austrian MotoGP last week who told me Slighty is still a hard riding man 🙂

I recall seeing him at Assen in 00's WSBK. We had a Kiwi family in the guest lounge. When he saw the younggirl with the NZ flag he pulled over on his way to the pits. Really nice.

That's the truth, he still shows up at bike events and is Honda's man at the track days they have.
