“My two-stroke col­lec­tion now num­bers 16 but th­ese are the three I brought to Don­ing­ton. I’ve had the Mk2 RS250 for five years. It’s seized twice since I’ve had it. I bought the Wal­ter Wolf RG500 five years ago to re­place an R1 that I kept get­ting done for speed­ing on. It has usd RGV forks, Met­machex swingarm and Suzuki GSXF600 wheels. I bought the other RG a cou­ple of weeks ago. That has GSX-R1000K1 forks and a JMC swinger.”
