Nope. I think you'd want to be a very very good rider to be considering this sort of thing, someone who is pushing the bike close to the limit and able to tell if it is actually making the bike better or worse. There's an old saying "just 'cos you've spent a lot of money doesn't mean you haven't bought a lemon" which equally applies to building as much as buying. And if you are cruising around in Group 2 'cos you are worried about crashing your expensive bike it kinda defeats the purpose of supposedly making the bike better, doesn't it?Not much have happened the last month due to a death in the immediate family but I will hopefully get back to it very soon.
I will be taking delivery of the Radical Ducati on Tuesday so can hardly wait for that! I've continues stocking up some various parts and have put together a plan for how I want to go forward with these builds.
While making room for the latest addition to the garage yesterday I got an email from GripOne about a newly released part so currently trying to argue myself out of getting one to test out. I'm a sucker for electronics and really interested in seing how well this works. Considering his expertise in MotoGP I'm inclined to giving it a go. Anyone else tempted?
It's just one more complication you don't need. Funny, some of my most enjoyable track days are the less complicated ones: I've a couple of race bikes but when they are out of action (hey, Ducati's...) I just rock up on my old roadie '06 R1 (Lil' Miss Reliable) and rip it with absolutely no expectation, no fiddling, just accepting it is what it is instead of fiddling and farting around trying to improve this or that. So I'm all for less complication not more, just enjoy the day and wrench in the shed, it's a shit time trying to combine the two.
