Re: The 51st Percy Duff Barbon Motorcycle Hill Climb (NW)

Hello Carlos, I got handed one of your cards at barbon

I was riding the black TL1000S #62 and Black ER6 #49

My friends Stu #61 and Tom #60 were riding other TLS's

I know Kev from TLZone.net and also Facebook and had the pleasure of meeting him at Cadwell when I ran the Supercharger :crazy:

Mr and Stu were the only "Dumpers" or "HGV's" to make the top 15 run off, then Top 10, and I sneaked into the Top 5.

The Oo Rr 6 (Yorkshire version of the ER6) was going well but no match for the top SM's unfortunately but still managed a 27 sec run on it :rev:

Look forward to seeing the pics, the 2nd left hander is a proper scary corner, bumpy, blind and knee touching down on cold tyres.......

Thankyou, the swingarm is a metmachex running a ducati hub and modified to take a TL1000R ohlins direct acting shock.

There's not much TL left on the bike, main frame and engine cases I think.

Fairly sure I have a sequence of you off the start on the er with a slight pop on the front wheel in first and second, will take a while to dig out though I took quite a few pics :blush:

Re: The 51st Percy Duff Barbon Motorcycle Hill Climb (NW)

The lovely little ER6, bloody great fun.

Just recently repaired after Stu crashed it at Epynt a few weeks back, hence why it now has brush guards to stop him grinding anymore of his fingers away...............

The amount of starts we do drys out the clutch packs and make them grabby, we usually lay the bikes over to soak them but the ER got forgotten about hence the little wheely :cry:
