Yeah watched that, looks like great fun. Cheap racing too, although helps when you are fast. Having said that looked like there were some slow old wobblers going round so I might be alright :lol:

One of my brothers and I were regulars as Team Fiendish in the Moped Endurance series for several years back in the 80s, with a best finish of 4th at the inaugural Bike Mag event at the Birmingham Wheels project, a grandiose title for a grandiose scheme. We were promised the site of an F2 standard race track, we got a car park with heaps of old tyres around it.

Good fun though, and we had one of the quickest bikes there, a home-tuned AR50 that topped 60 mph. The only trouble was, the straights were so short it was getting out of the corners that really mattered and we struggled against the twist and go's... and the Team Kawasaki Staff entry, who had - judging by the engine number (000004 IIRC) - a pre-production engine straight from Japan!

Have a look back through the last couple of months 44 teeth feed, there are a few videos of the 125 endurance racing with Fagan and assorted other riders on the little bikes just having a whale of a time ragging them to death :D

After the first one I found myself looking at GSXR125s. First time since I was about 19 I looked at 125s :D

125s need to be 2 strokes for power.

Have you seen the price of 2 stroke 125s :wtf: Even shitters.

I looked at TZRs first, then moved on to the GSXRs, at least I might finish the 6 hour race even if slowly :D

You can understand why Fagan kept saying "Sorry little Suzuki", "Sorry little engine" in the first video they ragged the bog stocker :mrgreen:
