I was actually in the pits that day at Daytona and got to talk with him for a few minutes. Super friendly guy...very cool. I remember being totally shocked at how short he was . LOL!
You should see his dad. He was racing the old H1R’s back when they were a little weird handling. He raced against Gary Nixon and Romero, all those guys. He had crashed in the corkscrew at Laguna more than once and said he ought to buy the track and take the corkscrew out! He’s a little smaller than Miggy but those dudes ride like they got some big brass ones! Just added this to my baby, took some doing as it affected other stuff like no ignition switch mount.

Where did you end up putting your ignition? I'm actually working on a project to make a clear clutch cover for the RCs. Should be sweet when finished but lots of trial and error. I noticed a few duc's clear clutch covers start to turn hazy after so long. Can't have that for the RCs.

Thanks man. I’ve put a lot of work into this bike and have to say even when issues came up I enjoyed every minute. Just about done now. Still have a slipper clutch sitting on the bench for install this winter if we ever get any rain. Wibbly was a big help and inspiration for several things including the triples and rfid key system. His bike IS a work of art.

Most definitely beautiful. Let me know how you like the slipper clutch. I have been thinking about going that route also.
