    No. That's an ex Billy Hamill Weslake. I have a soft spot for Weslakes. The one I bought from Scott Autrey makes no.3. being an Otto Lantenhammer builr Weslake I caved and bought it. Not 100% sure what I'll do with it right now. But couldn't walk away. I'm building this Godden for Bonneville.

    Went down on a wet track this weekend. Supercorsa SP and rain suck monkey balls. I was relatively crawling around the track entering the last corner about 40mph and the front end just folded as I crossed from new to old asphalt. No brakes the whole lap. Just mild engine braking.

    Live and learn... I'm fucking getting too used to crashing.

    I got a side cover to replace and will drop the pan to make sure some metal from the ground through hole didn't make it into the engine.

    Lowsiding at the track in full gear is mostly painless except to the ego and wallet. (which currently is at an all time low)

    Lowsiding in the rain is like taking a ride on a waterslide and almost fun.

    I think I hurt myself more picking the bike up than the actual fall.

    Not sure what u mean. But I was first out for that session. No one else on track 'cept me and the corner workers...
    I picked up the bike cause no one was on track yet. Remounted and had to ride another complete lap because I crashed past pit out.
    I got bitched out when I came back in because they thought I tried to keep riding after falling. Even got a black flag for it... lol. All on an empty raining track.
