I met a few of you at a Brands Hatch track evening a couple of months ago (I see that Highside has found his way on here and I was on the other black and white race Hornet)
I’ve had a good look around but thought it best to finally register and say hello.
Apart from the 2 Hornets I also own a VFR800VTEC and a 1983 GSX1100 Katana, so the garage is a bit crowded!
I race with New Era MCC in the Hornet Cup (pretty obvious really) and am currently 5th in the SuperClub championship and 2nd in Club.
Also, I downloaded the podcast and listened to while I was flying longhaul to Chicago (where I am now with time to spare to get this done). Congratulations on an excellent Podcast, I’m hooked on that.
Hopefully then I shall be seeing some of you on track or at a nice biking hotspot soon!
Hiya and welcome to LB
poke poke with our newbie stick…
Hey Paul, welcome to LB! Post up some pics of your rides in the Pictures & Video forum, why not!
Hi Paul, welcome to the site
I’ve just purchased a new ‘bullet’ camera that I hope to be able to attach to the race bike without the scroots having a problem with it so I’ll be able to post up some video footage to give people an idea of the amazing fun/terror that is Hornet racing.
Welcome to LB mate. Looking forward to seeing some footage.
hey edith welcome to lb, hope to see you at the cubana sometime!.
I’m in 2 minds whether to reply to that
My initials are PF so I was given the nickname ‘Edith’ many years ago by some cultured so-and-so…
Edith PF, geddit?
All I can remember is René from the TV comedy Allo Allo shouting “Ediss, Eeeediss” at his wife!
oh, and welcome Paul!
Pull up a seat and enjoy Paul welcome to LB watch out for the poking
hello to you and welcome to the mad house…x
I never went to see her play live, but I’ve been told she could sing a bit
As for me…
Live out west, the Chertsey area
VFR 800 vtec - love the vtec bit, nice wheelies at 7000 rpm . Done 18000 miles in 3 years, over half of them in France and Spain. Needs a new clutch and fork seals and a damn good wash.
GSX1100 Katana - 1983 vintage, all original (wears a Harris 4 into 1 but I have the standard pipes). For sunday trips to Boxhill and the Ace cafe.
2 x racing Hornets - pretty much identical - one has racing Bridgestone wets and an Ohlins the other has Bridgestone BT002s and a Nitron shock. Since I started racing last year everything I do kinda revolves around it - kinda takes over your life
So when you add the car, the missus’ car, the motorhome, the trailer and the mountain bikes up, that makes 30 wheels
“Needs a new clutch and fork seals”
hummmm i wonder why that is?
