    Default AHRMA 2014 Season Opener

    March 1-2, Roebling Road Raceway, Savannah, Georgia. AHRMA features everything from handshift Indians up to Panagles. And, of course, 851s and 888s in Next Gen Superbike.

    The 888 relaxing in the warm Georgia sunshine at the start of the race weekend. Fun racing, good results - finished second to Chris Boy of Moto Corse in Florida by two-tenths of a second, then turned the tables on Sunday for the win by about two one-hundredths of a second!

    Mark-

    What bike is Chris riding this season? He had asked me last month if I was wanting to sell one of mine or if I knew any Corse's for sale. He sent me some pictures of ones he had bought or was hoping to buy. I commented on them but he never wrote back.

    It was a 92 851. Motor was stockish but he had the full Ohlins front end with the brembo monoblocs up front, Ohlins shock, carbon tank, light wheels, etc. I had motor on him, but I'm also 8" taller and 50 lbs heavier than he is so I needed it.

    BTW, just saw the official margin of victory on My Laps: 0.012 seconds!

    Great looking bike!

    FWIW. put some stompgrips on the tank, it really helped mine.

    P.S. What about that RC 30 that you were battling last year, was he there?

    Way to go Mark. Your belly pan looks good. Is that a modified 998 one?

    I've tried Stompgrips and other types of tank grips before and just don't like them. I have a 36" inseam, so I'm pretty locked-in on the bike as it is.

    The RC30 "sold" on eBay a month or so ago to a UK buyer for $38k. Apparently he flaked out and the bike is for sale again. Too bad, as I imagine it will end up in someone's living room rather than out on the racetrack.

    Other than Chris and I on Ducatis, there was a ZX7, and GSXR, and a FZR, so a nice mix of bikes.

    Hi Bill:

    It's a Chinese-made carbon fiber pan for a 748/916/996 that I bought on eBay. My CF V-piece fit in the front well, and then I trimmed the side fairings to match the belly pan. It's not perfect, but it's pretty good.
