Tokoroa GP 2013

April 27, 2013

Wow, what an awesome weekend that was! That was my first time visiting Tokoroa and it’s such a fun circuit, although hard on the body into those down hill sections. Huge thanks to the organisers, time keepers, flaggies, and everyone who drank beers with us on Saturday night. Congrats to everyone who raced and those who triumphed. The GP looked fierce, I was nervous before qualifying and I wasn’t even in the race!

I just wanted to point out that there were TEN, yes TEN Honda RS chassis’ at the GP (including a RS250) and not including the GPR diesel which is pretty much a RS. That’s more than a nationals round I believe…

Cheers to Glen for showing me a few improving lines during the track walk and to Cully for letting me pervertedly handle his RSGP125. On that note:

GP BARS

January 25, 2013

I made some clip on bars this week after work for the GP125. I’ve very stoked to have them at a more suitable height! Now I just have to cut off the front and rear foot pegs and make some new ones to correct the seating position.

The bars are currently at quite a shallow angle due to the bulk of the factory tank. I’m not about to chop and weld it but man I wish I could! I’m toying with the idea of making one from scratch in the search for less mass and better fit. I suppose I’ll see how I get on.

The above are two reference images including the bars. Note the frame shape, I’m hoping to change that…
