    Well I decided that my road days are over, for now anyway. Bike has had a bit of work done and is now ready to hit the race track. Carried out a full service, changed all the fluids. Replaced all the brake lines for HEL braided hoses, also HEL braided clutch hose. Sintered pads all round, new adjustable rear sets. Removed all lights but after winning and carbon fibre nose cone on ebay then being told it wasn't good enough to sell I opted to strip the headlights of all internals and duck tape the lenses. Had to lose as much weight as possible but couldn't stretch to full fairing kit, that's on the list for next year. All in all, I think she's turned out pretty well and can't wait to get some track time on her now.

    I have done more track mileage this year than road for the first time :)
    but I can change it back it back to road trim 40 mins (hence the chinese fairing rather then full track fairing) if I fancy the odd trip out lol ;)

    Thanks Andy

    I can count on one hand the amount of times I've ridden her on the road this year. I can still daytime mot it though so I can have the odd blast if I fancy it, just a case of putting number plate back on which is 5 min job. If all goes well with her I might race in the No Limits series next year.
