Hello All,

We're in the process of finishing some vintage racers and just really starting a pair of Classic SBK's
The ones that we are just getting back on track with are a NC-30, 400 cc Honda. Fresh engine,suspension and cleaned up body work. Then there's our 1980 Moto Guzzi Le Mans (see attachment) that lost her clutch last year at Phillips Island. All we need here is drop the engine replace the clutch and off we go.

The two Suzuki's are 1982 GS1100E,s in the Yosh look that Greame Crosby rode. These we plan on taking to Phillips Island next year. Then we'd like to come back to the USA and head a wee bit south and do the first ever south of the boarder Real Road Race through the streets The Mexico TT is to be run in the early part of '21.

Also we want to do some of the Road Races in the UK and Ireland ending at the Manx GP. We ran there in '16 (see "[email protected]....IOM") with a wee bit of calamity so we are hoping to redeem ourselves.

Anyway and wondering old guy racers and adventures please hit the forum and say hello.

Rich

The 2021 lap of the world sounds interesting. Is this friends with deep pockets or do you have a corporate sponsor package? It's got to be a hefty tag to ship a race team US to Aus to Ireland/IOM and back to go vintage racing.

I'll buy a 2$ lottery ticket today, maybe we can get lucky.

So TR you buying Lottery tickets. too ? It's not as costly as it may sound. First off we have a super deal with a shipper and all of us from the states band together as Team USA as do the Canadians and the folks from New Zealand. Everything goes in one container so the cost is fairly low. We also get a heck of a deal on hotel so it's more or less a two week vacation is all. Now heading to the IOM and the UK to some degree it will be the same. We also have a wonderful lady on the island that has been putting us up for what is almost 20 years at about 10% of what a hotel room during the Races would cost. She also lets us us her kitchen and fridge so food costs are nil. UK we're counting on mates we've met over the years to give us floors and garage space between the races so again not as bad as it sounds.
Now a spare Million would make it all a wee bit easier but that's may be a lot of lottery tickets.
Cheers
