Yamaha MT-10 / FZ-10 Motorcycle Picture Image
OMG! This new Yamaha MT-10, also known as the FZ-10 in the United States, absolute rocks!! Well, it does in this new livery idea in the dark grey and lime green. Wow. Amazingly, it is less than 10 grand.. Umm, that will put a lot of noses out of joint. I can imagine a lot of MT-07 / FZ-07 and MT-09 / FZ-09  riders moving up to this new litre bike. It will obviously be a detuned R1 engined bike as opposed to a over-tunes 900cc form the 09 series. The current specs are: MT-10 at a glance   Max Power 158.2bhp @ 11,500rpmMax Torque 81.86ftlb @ 9000rpmSeat Height 825mmWeight 210kgCost £9999When can I get it? May 2016   Form an orderly queue now.. I wonder the competition is thinking?...

The Hendee Manufacturing Company introduced the 1.75-horsepower, single-cylinder Indian in 1901. Harley-Davidson followed in 1903. Inevitably, racing ensued. Early contests were held on horse-racing ovals and bicycle velodromes, but around 1909 wooden tracks built specifically for cars and motorcycles began to appear in Los Angeles and then elsewhere. It was in 1911 that a livery worker named Ashley Franklin Van Order moved from Illinois to Southern California so he could ride his motorcycle year-round. Van Order took a job selling Harley-Davidsons and began riding competitively, but his racing career was cut short soon afterward by an accident, followed by an ultimatum. “His wife, Lilly, told him that if he ever rode again, she was out of there,” says Van Order’s grandson, Jim Bolingmo Sr., a retired professor of science and math. Van Order turned to photography, and the images he amassed from the mid-1910s through the 1920s—his own and possibly others’—constitute...

 During a particularly damp weekend on Daventry I decided to kick off my mini bike racing again. The conditions could not have been more difficult, rain, the sun, rain, then sun..... and although I have wets for the bike, I don't have spare sprockets and discs and so it was matter of wait and see what it was going to be like and change the wheels to suit 20 minutes before the race.  I got down to the track at about on the @ 22:30 on Saturday night, pitched my cheap ass setup and bedded down. Arguably there is no better way to spend a Sunday. Practice, Qualifying and 2 races, and the bonus of being surrounded by pleasant like-minded people.           Despite my being awfully slow, running in group B in the stock 140s (fastest 30 riders go in group A) I came 20th in race 1...

During 2013 I was out on the bike at least once a month, £25 for a entire day out on track was too good to say no to. In 2013 a new race series started up, this was set by member of another UK series who decided to go it on their own, and set up a mini bike racing series "by riders, for riders": http://www.nmrrc.co.uk/ Unfortunately during the 2013 summer series I was unable to race, but i did however agree to help by coming down and help during race days with gridding up, as well as doing some filming and editing for them, please see the two videos in the blog. The series has grown over the last two years, and is now televised on Motors TV, therefore, my services are no longer required, but yet, still appreciated.  In November 2013, I got some money together and entered...
