Out with the old/worn Rosso III's





In with the new; Angel GT2's this time round. The WSBK Assen trackday will not be until end August (if ever), so I decided to give these a try. I liked hem a lot on my VFR...

Hey Dutchy. I have Angels on my RC-51, like them a lot. I don't have a spare set of tires (or wheels!) for track days, so they are a very good compromise IMHO. Not as sticky as a track tire, but a much wider temperature range for street use.

BTW, last night I watched race 1 of the opening round of the 2000 WSBK season, Kyalami. First RC-51 race, fantastic finish, Edwards vs. Haga. Fogerty, Chili, Corser, Crafar on the other RC, Bostrom, and even the GoShow (DNF). Thought of your bike in Castrol colors, fun stuff!

Pre Ordered the latest and greatest chain adjuster/Lift combo from RaceTorx. Not cheap mind you, but Quality made, and looking bit for sure!

Ordered a chain/Sprocket combo from Kyle Racing on Ebay. I was cleaning, lubing, and adjusting my chain for a ride recently, and realized the chain had a section of about 6 to 8 links that are much tighter than the remainder. I've put about 8000 miles on the bike since I purchased it. Previous Owner said he had just replaced chain and sprockets, which I believe to be true. Rear sprocket teeth look fine. I'm guessing chain is just stretched/worn. I'm going to make a point of doing chain maintenance on a much more frequent basis from now on.

Got the white beast fired up for a ride today. Paid the penalty of the Covid-19 surplus food consumption and lack of available gyms.

An extra 2 kilos on each butt cheek made me very uncomfortable. Will put it away for a while and keep to my 'old man' Firestorm/Hawk until I become a svelte, macho fashion icon once again.:D
