the fizz has been on tardmax for aboot a month nao. had a guys mate (who was probably in his mid 60's) come and look on behalf last weekend. he didn't take it for a ride, just listened to it, cracked it up a bit in neutral to listen for cracks and pops. he's helping a mate get into track racing down in invercargil. they plan on entering the post-classic 750 class, and want a yamaha because of the lower seat height, being a bit moar beginner friendly i guess. the dude himself is coming up for a squizz tomorrow. so my fingers are crossed. would be rad to see her blasting around the track, it'd give me a godd excuse to head down with my mates to watch it every odd weekend.

I went from 100cc two stroke to 650cc four stroke in one jump when I was 18, it took weeks to wipe the grin off my face :D

well talk away. you have a number of options, you can pm me here if you have any specific questions. Or I'll be back in NZ in about Feb, probably staying around the Rotorua area. Or you can find a bunch of other info and pics and videos of my trip as I write it on ADVrider.com same screenname as I use here.
