“I’M FROM Wakefield but a few months ago I moved to Edmonton in Canada, about 100 miles north of Calgary. It was -20°C when I got there, so I decided to leave the RGV250 I’d just bought at home.
“It’s a great bike, especially with the Zeeltronic ignition system and 1993 GSX-R600 rear shock. I’ve actually only had it three months and given that the bike’s in England I hadn’t even ridden it, so I thought, ‘There’s only one thing for it: the PS trackday.’
“I landed at Heathrow on the Thursday before Cadwell, and Saturday was the first time I’d ridden it. Initially there were a few jetting issues but once we’d sorted those the bike was brilliant, especially on new Pirelli Diablos. What a top weekend – I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.”
