Early bath...

Testing this morning has not gone to plan, as you can see.
Highsided at the chicane. Bugger!!
I had done several laps to warm up the left hand side of the tyre that is always a problem at Snetterton and was starting to pick up the pace.

The lap before the rear felt like it was gripping well so I opend Gordon up coming on to the straight. I was well out of the corner and sitting the bike up when the rear came around - and then it's all 'ground - sky - ground - pain....'





No way Jose...

This picture only tells half the story.
Even if I set to try and rebuild him there is major stuff that I just can't put right before racing tomorrow.
Both wheels are wrecked, exhausts are ripped off, and sub frame is remodelled.
Good job there are five weeks until the next event.
