Default Taking my CBR for a shakedown

Got a test day at 3 Sisters in Wigan today will be the first time out for the CBR & the weather forecast doesnt look good.
I have never ridden on Wet tyres yet, so it's going to be a big learning curve. Really looking forward to it tho

Well, what a waste of time. My son ran my FZR400 & was faultless. The CBR didn't even turn a wheel
She has been running fine up until it was time to go out on track when there was a puff of white smoke out of the exhaust & it started to run on 3 cylinders So it's back to the drawing board.

It's made my decision easier, I'm racing my FZR this year & the CBR is going to be a project for my eldest, he wants to race again this season but hasn't got a bike.
Roll on June for my 1st race at 3 Sisters
