25/02/07 – Work Begins To Prepare Race Bikes
With a little over six weeks to go before the first round at Donington Park we have finally received the first of the bikes for the season. Matt and I helped unload seven GSXR1000K7s, including ours, at Steve Jordan Motorcycles the week before the public launch.
The suspension parts are on order, there is no bodywork available and we only have a vague idea when the exhausts are due to arrive. Needless to say we are in a similar position as we were last year! I hope things start moving quickly as Matt has a big learning curve ahead of him to get up to speed on the bike.
In case you were wondering, the lovely black and orange coloured bike is ours. You won’t see them on the roads as Suzuki are only selling those bikes to racers for the moment. So anyone that wants that colour will have to find a racer willing to sell the body kit that they will be removing.
