Time to finish jobs.

Well it is sunny again still some wind though.

Have dropped the forks another 10mm as Gordon is still a little lazy at turning.

Plenty of time to get other jobs finished, just tidying up the starter, you can see the works Jawa supermonos of Jan and Libor in the background.

Gordon is learning to speak Czech now with his new friends.






It would be easy to blame the wind, but to be honest I was simply riding hard - as this is what testing is all about; I am not here to ride round.

Mariska was just in the right place to snap Gordon feeling so sore he couldn't get in the recovery van without some help.
Just running through the damage and cleaning Gordon up at the moment.

Main problem is the front wheel is damaged, just as well I fitted the crash bungs that Stuart gave me yesterday or it would be an early bath....





Up and atom.

Bodged, sorry effected some repairs and as luck would have it there is one of Gordon's Dutch cousins here so I have found an original SZR front wheel to borrow.

With a bit more work I should be able to get back on with the job of testing this afternoon.




Ready for a small glass of wine.


Well after a lot of hard work I've managed to get Gordon back on his feet.

Just had some good news from the UK, Dave Bennett has generously donated his spare FZR400 wheels to Gordon, the front which I need right away.

Destroyed my leathers as well - bu$$er!


Another great action shot from yesterday by Mariska.
