The team from MotoTT Trackdays decided to hold a two-day trackday, using a different track for each day.
It was to be my third ever trackday at the Taupo Motorsports Park and I was feeling great! It was a Friday, so had taken a day off work to participate, I had one goal to achieve by the end of the day… to get my ‘knee down’
I got an email from MotoTT promoting a Suzuki Trackday at Taupo on Track 1 for only $80.

My first impressions were damn!, this thing looks mean as and sounds ever better!… Continue reading 2007 Suzuki GSX-R1000 K7
Today I had the chance to take out a demo 2009 Suzuki SFV650 Gladius from Boyd Motorcycles in Hamilton. First impressions were not too bad, some similar styling and performance to my brother in law’s Triumph Street Triple. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Iz0xlLDpjU
So the family and I were off to Hamilton today for a birthday and xmas shop for all of Joshuas’ cousins. I was on the look out for a new scooter to get around in Rotorua.
