Re: Headshake at 170mph

Thinking more... what about bar-end weights? You didn't mention if you had any. Kawasaki released "ergo bars" for my street bike that were just 20mm higher at the ends (same inside mounting point so just a small angle change and they tripled the weight of the bar-ends to suit.

Re: 200 mph plus bike tires

Nice work, there were a lot of people with tyre problems this year.

Re: 2018 Speed Week

It was an excellent week of racing and the whole even ran like clockwork. Kudos to everyone who made it happen. Of course, it wouldn't have happened without the tireless effort for 12 months by the committee and the huge amount of work on the ground for the racing week. This was only our second trip...
