I am with TexasKid, I will be looking for a RXR for a photo op.
I hope the shutter speed on my Wifes disposible Kodak will catch it.
Madracer must have spent time writeing for a cycle mag.
Thanks for the info, and good luck at the race.
Brilliant Madracer! They're the best pics I've seen yet!
Good luck with the racing season. I live about 5 miles from Oulton Park so I might bob down in September and see you fly (if my 1098 turns up by then).
Nice report. I saw that you complained about the suspension on the bike. Can you give more details on this? How does it compare to the stock suspension on say the 996 or 998. I will be using the 1098 (when I get it) strictly for race/track duty, just wondering if I should just wait and get a 1098S (long line) instead.
The main problem was that the forks bottomed out when braking very hard from high speed, I am getting a 20mm conversion done by a British firm K-Tech and will report back. Hope it works as my next outing on the bike will be this years first race meeting at Croft on 31st March. I have not had the pleasure of the 996 or 998 so cannot compare.
A friend of mine is racing the 1098s in the British Superstock Cup series and he is changing the suspension, both types it seems are not really up to race spec.
Will be putting a report of the race weekend on my web site hopefully with good news of the forks
