My Race 250 Finally Ready

Some pic of my just finished race 09 250. I'm pretty happy with the end result.

I don't know if I will have a chance to do it soon though.

My goal is to overtake some guys on 600 and 1000 on the brakes at my local track. I already have a beast of a zx-10r so I think it will be fun to push a small bike very fast.

Very nice build! It's the same with me, I have bigger bikes but I always enjoy pushing small bike fast!

Nice build. Really cool setup with your forks. Should be a super fun ride. You might start dragging pegs pretty quick with out risers though. Pegs touching isn’t a huge deal since they fold. Very soon after they touch your rear brake and shift lever touch as well. They don’t fold.

the rear is up 30mm and I have room to rise the front by 30mm also.

I will be carefull on my first couple of runs. if its a problem. I'll buy some rear sets.

I've done my first track day with the "Beast". the bike is super planted, telepathicaly flickable and the brakes are amazing. I ended by adding 4 washers under the needles (2.3mm total) and the mid is great.

Here's a video of me and my students this sunday. I'm 9 seconds off my zx-10r pace, but the strait is sooooooooo long (hahaha)

Enjoy.

this is what we have as race tracks. it would be worse if the tires and bales weren't there.

You could loan us $200 000 to redo all the surface so we can get rid of those tires and bales

It's very nice and challenging track! I like it. I have organized many races and see the dangers.
In U.S., we have to worry about idiots injuring themselves and suing.
Last year, Keigwins was bankrupted by rider with more money than skill.
He crashed at Laguna Seca, was injured and sued. Horrible!

What does it cost to entre trackday at Autodrome St Félicien?
I may have to try it when I'm visting my aunt and grand-ma in Montréal and Quebec City..

If you book and pay in advance (before April) it's $300 CAD for Friday night Drag, Saturday track day 9:00 am to 6:30 pm and Sunday track day 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

after that, it's $345.

St-Félicien is a single annual event always around Canada Day (July First).

We have some other track days this year near Quebec City at RiverSide Speedway (Ste-Croix) : August 8th, September 5th and 6th.

10:00 am to 6:00 pm

If you book and pay in advance (at least 10 days before the event) it's $230 CAD per day. After that, it's $260.

here's a video of me (2014) at Ste-Croix. it's a fun but short and physically demanding track. it was the Superbike style start session at the end of the day.

I hope to seen you soon

I plan on visiting my grand-ma as soon as allowed after this COVID-19 thing goes away!

I really like tight challenging tracks. So much fun!
