'86 TZR250 Racer
« on: May 17, 2016, 11:53:51 PM »
I thought I would share a few pics of my TZR  O0

I bought it 3 years ago as a standard bike dressed for the track. My Dad and I have had it to nuts and bolts and turned it into a championship winner!

Onboard from Donington this year

Superb!
Thanks for posting.
Bike is singing and rider to.
I like that guy who tried to take the lead from you, he caught a massive speed wobble and backed off. Ace!

Cheers gents! Really proud of it. I owe the engine to my Dad and Graham File, really flies when on song   considering what it has to drag around

I use a Diablo rosso 2 rear (the fronts a bit hard), and a Bridgestone BT090 front

That was Rik guest riding on an LC/RD350 hybrid, that thing rips! But is hilarious to watch wobble and slide through the corners.

It's crazy how much fun the 2ma is to ride fast. The club I race with has a club bike available for people to try racing as a rookie or returning racer! Check it out here: http://www.ypmrc.co.uk

Here is another one from the Oulton roller coaster :)

I watched the Oulton one last night - my favourite track. I have many many happy memories of racing around there, both on a TZR and a TZ. Cascades is the best corner in the country. And before they put the chicane in, Knickerbrook was one of the most terrifying. I lobbed my TZ away there (I'm such a ham-fisted idiot that I didn't actually realise I'd crashed until I saw sparks coming off the brake lever) and went about 400 yards up the grass on my arse.

Particularly like the flower on the seat unit :) My last race TZR had some daisies on the seat unit, and my current road TZR does too. All the best TZRs have flowers on them.

Great to watch, and a brilliant result from that start position.

I couldn't help think something was missing from the track - then I realised Starkeys Bridge has gone................when did they remove that ?

The place is as awesome track but boy have they ripped out the trees from the infield !!

That Tzr is one of the best out there without a doubt, beautifully prepared  8) As Ironchief said, so much fun to ride fast, you can embarrass a lot of bigger and more expensive bikes on a little 250  :))
Also proves you don't need to be a midget racing snake to win a championship, just ride it flat out and be consistant.

That's my LC/YPVS ridden by His Hairyness! Wayward, unpredictable but shed loads of fun to ride, i can't get her going as well as he does though  :-[

Got to be one of my favourite vids that, it's a lesson on how to get on with it after a failed qualifying, from the back to the front. Sorted!

NRonketti, we all run the Sunflower, it's memorial. Sunflower for Shophie, Den Grants daughter who sadly passed away. Flowers are always cool :-)
