Honda CB description

Here you go look at this sweet CB550k!!! This bike can be a show winner or just a super nice rider!! The bike is all original except for the sweet sounding 4into1 exhaust!! It has a seam coming apart on the seat a cheap fix, eBay 75.00 and a small blemish on a strip on the tank No DENTS! The bike runs and shifts awesome, all lights work as they should and even the factory beeper for the turn signals works. the only thing mechanically the needs attention is the fork seals. Let the pictures do the talking. I will store the bike until you find a good deal on shipping and help load for the shipper.. If you have any questions please feel free to give me a call or text at 319-533-8905. I have video of me riding the bike on a great summer night if you would like I can text it to you.

Bahrain track days

Tue, 17 Dec 2013

A few months ago, expat (and ex racer) John Beddall made contact to ask if I fancied doing some track day instruction out in Bahrain.  After thinking about it for two seconds, flights were booked and a plan was put in place to look after around forty riders for a day at the Bahrain International Circuit (BIC).  Young Taylor Mac was also recruited to look after any tasty riders that I couldn’t deal with   The Brits out there love their bikes, however, quite a few locals also turned up plus a few others from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar.  Most were on high end Superbikes, like S1000s, Panigales and RSV4s but there was also a healthy number R6s and new 675Rs.   Although this fabulous Hermann Tilke designed circuit is around ten years old incredibly it has never hosted a bike race.  The highlight of the year there is F1 but being owned by the Bahrainian Royal family, there is no desperate need for the circuit to operate as a profitable business.  The track reminded me of Qatar but much more interesting as some great undulations have been built into its desert location. We shared the track with Supercars on the day (20mins on/20mins off) and as you might imagine it was betty swollocks for seven hours in the 30 plus temperatures.  As usual there was a few offs with poor old RS1000 Aprilia mounted Andy breaking his femur early in the day.  Two other buddies appeared to swap bikes mid air in another incident but fortunately escaped unhurt.In the evening everyone stayed for an al fresco dinner in the paddock with the craic going on for hours as the Fosters kept flowing.   All in all it was a brilliant trip and it has left me thinking there could be cost effective ways of getting Brits out there for track days next winter.  I'll keep you posted.Cape Town next to make my racing comeback at the Killarney 8 hour on a CBR150 Honda.  Hopefully I can manage the beast, I'll post a full report next week.
