At last for the ER6 and Versys Motad have made stainless steel downpipes to replace the crappy mild steel ones that Kawasaki (and most other manufacturers) use on their bikes. Exactly the same shape as the OE part so a perfect fit is guaranteed and the standard silencer will fit straight on. The ER6 and Versys are renowned for having rusty minging headers
American Kane Friesen has broken Gary Rothwells long standing world record by pulling off one of the most impressive stunts ever.
Kane managed an amazing 137 mph on his Kawasaki breaking the old record by nearly 40 mph.
Brave and crazy. Please do not try this at home..
I have to say that Chris Martins superman impression at Brands Hatch is one of the things that sticks in my head from this seasons racing, and believe me i watch it all.
Having just seen pictures of him at Croft this weekend i now feel bad that i actually enjoyed watching it happen.
Poor bugger, he looks like his whole upper body is being held together with meccano.
Get well soon Chris.
Times are tough in the bike trade these days and proof of this is Kawasaki anouncing they will be moving production of their larger machines to Thailand from 2010. Following Triumph (Made in England?) who have been doing this for some time, rumour has it that Honda are getting ready to follow suit. What happens when it becomes too expensive to have bikes built there? Maybe all the petrol will have run out by then and we shall all be riding electric bikes once again made in Japan. Ah, the circle of life continues.
