‘Who needs a 1000?’

HONDA RVF400 NC35 DAVE BOWLER

Performance Bikes (UK) - - YOUR BIKES -

I’VE WANTED TO try rac­ing for a long time. Last year I booked a Yamaha Past Mas­ters Ren­taracer. For £500, I got to race Satur­day and Sun­day, all tyres and fuel and the aid of a fab­u­lous me­chanic Len Grant, from the club. On the Sun­day night, my road bike, a 2017 BMW S1000RR went on eBay. I bought an ex-RLR Honda RVF400 NC35, with tyre warm­ers and two crates of spares for £4000. Two week­ends later, I bought a VW T5 trans­porter for £4500 to move it all around. I raced it at Don­ing­ton for the first time last month, and got faster all week­end. Ev­ery­one should try it!
