Bike Freight Transport racing Buell 1125rr
Lucifer’s Hammer loaded up and ready for some serious track time. Yesterday afternoon, 1 August on our way to Killarney International Raceway for some serious practice. The bike is pretty much sorted out. The issue with the charging system was simply a disconnected plug. I did about 15 laps in all over two sessions. Bike was great, pulling like a train, even on normal pump gas. Next session will be with race fuel. Tyres are getting a little shot. The last time they were ridden in anger was nearly 18 months ago and they were new then. So they have tended to dry out a bit and are much harder than they should be. however after putting a couple of heat cycles through them they have started to come back.
All in all a great session, getting of the bike quite nicely but can do more. Very cautious on brakes though but this will come as the confidence builds up. New tyres on order, a set of Dunlop GP-A Pro which I hope to get soon should be ready for next race qualifying on the 9th August for the Power series round 6.
