Thanks Couz!

Suzy V has Moved on

Suzy V has now gone to a good new home.

Young hot-shot Aaron Silvester will be using her as a 'spare' bike as he challenges for the NG Racing Minitwins title next year. I know Aaron from Dirttrack racing (where we've had a few battles :-) and this year, his first in road racing, he took the Novice Championship and a fantastic 4th in the Minitwins Championship.

All the best for next season Aaron.. and take care of her  - she's a goon 'un!

Suzy V for Sale

Plans are underway for next year. Unfortunately, Suzy V has to go :-(

She's been a faithful servant - a veteran of 5 Manx Grand Prix and earning 3 replicas for her efforts. Just one DNF with a faulty battery and a finishers medal after some plonker replaced the carb diaphragm cover the wrong way around before the race.

This year, outgunned and underpowered against the modern machinery, the 13 year old old carb-fed sweet-lookin' gal did a best lap of 109mph and finished 9th in her race. The first Suzuki home - she showed 'em what's what.

Original Suzuki front-end goes back on...

Frankenstein Aprilia front-end (with the help of Kawasaki bottom clamps, original stem and GSXR top clamp)...

...goes back in the box for the next bike.

Ay yes... all 'original' again.

She's been immense. I'm going to miss wringing her neck around the Isle of Man.
