Good on Ya! That's a smokin' deal. A far as the run-in goes, have a mate go along so you can ride the bike on the remote Outback parts of the A1 where LEOs are least likely to be encountered. What tracks are they using besides Phillip Island? Are these the rounds?I put a deposit down yesterday on the new race package offered by Yamaha Australia for the R3 cup
I had planned to race 2 ninja 300's this year and have literally just completed building the second one to race (finished it 2 days ago). However, with the enticing contingencies and greater rewards I've decided to make the switch to the dark side- ordered a Matt grey/black 2016 r3
Hopefully I'll sell one of the ninja's so my bank balance doesn't start looking too depressing! Lol.
What makes this venture more difficult is that this series is run on the opposite side of the country (>3,500km's away) on tracks I have never been to or ridden on! The bike is also being purchased from a dealer on the opposite side of the country, that means I'll most likely be building a race bike in the back of a van on the way to the race track. I also have no idea about what to do about the run-in period
I've actually not yet ridden an R3 and honestly I wasn't a huge fan when I sat on one at a dealership ~6 months ago. I haven't booked any of my flights yet but expect to pick the bike up in 3-4 weeks.
This season should be "interesting" and no doubt expensive, hopefully I can get a setup I'm happy with relatively quickly.
I will still be racing one of my ninja 300's in the state championship this year.
