I'm off to the Stafford Classic Bike show this weekend - any one else going.

I seem to remember someone spotting my Van last year at this event.

If anyone does go keep an eye out for my Yellow Harris.

Cheers

Jimbo

Surprised a few people with just how quick you can hustle a big boat like the XJR through the hairpin and chicane at Mallory. Forget gerrards though!

Me up until 2 months ago, with 6 years under my belt, getting through this winter without a bike and with luck next year re-stocking with a war dated and maybe another sports bike, we'll see..

Hi . Jimbo .
That looks one double hard street fighter and extra loud exhaust.
was it all built by your own hands.

I have owned a few bikes now started with a home built hardtail chop made from a yam xs650 took me about a year.
Then sold it for a sports bike .
From gixers milly and r1 and finally i have a zx636 that i turned into my trackbike .
Also being a famliy man i never found the time to ride it on the road.
But it looks like im going to have to sell her or the t4 .
So the bike will be on ebay soon. family commitments and lack of use.
which is a shame i love track riding and i will miss it.



cadwell park



now with full race fairing done in marmite red you either love it or hate it ( but green did not match my leathers sad i know )

by the way ROSSI is still god ...

cheers .Lee.

Hi Lee

Yep, every last nut and bolt - its a bit of a bone of contention with Specials - far too many Cheque book bikes winning shows that have never been ridden or had a spanner turned by the owner.

Anyway - a very brief insight to the last 13years here if your interested JIMBOS HARRIS

Dude - hang in there with the track racing thing - if you get half the buzz I get from blasting up the srtip, you won't be the same person without it....

Jimbo
