I bought this 06 R1 new and I've been tweaking it ever since. It's a long term love affair, and there isn't much of it left unmodified. I love racebikes of all kinds, but the World Endurance Championship machines have always grabbed me the most. I've built GSXR's, a ZXRR and a couple of CBR's into endurance styled bikes, with single offset headlights and race parts. But this one is a bit special. I'm rebuilding it after a lowside at high speed, and it's not quite complete...but I fitted the freshly painted bodywork today and I'm stoked with the result. I hope you like it. :D

If that's the short list, the long list should be really impressive.

Sweet and sic! Does it run as good as it looks?
Even better! It's as easy to throw left to right at 250kph as it is at 60. It takes off like scalded cat, and the engine revs so quickly I have to be on the ball to change gear quickly enough. It's like ballroom dancing with high explosives! lol

Have you ever raced it?
No, but I've done plenty of trackdays in raceglass. Here it is at Phillip Island. The highest average speed racetrack on the GP calendar. At the end of the main straight you top out in top gear...300kph-ish...go down to 5th, no braking....and peel in to T1. The G-forces at mid corner fix your angle and trajectory. You can't change them so you'd better have it right! :)


Heading up to Lukey Heights....





Mid straight...250kph... 15kg Cape Barren Geese waddling in the background!





Siberia...120kph





Turn 10, just after MG at the bottom of Lukey Heights. Short shift into 3rd....80kph **** all revs...huge lean...no noise. Weird!
