1995 Aprilia RS250
Max Biaggi two-stroke race replica in Chesterfield Livery
California plated, insured and registered (Clean Title in hand)

I'm the fourth owner of this original Max Biaggi Chesterfield (not a sticker kit replica). I bought her from a good friend that needed a car for his growing family. This was THE bike I originally wanted when I first got into motorcycles. 18 years or so and a lot of bikes later, I was lucky enough to get my hands on this wonderful machine.

She has 13,060 on her currently, and runs flawlessly.
Top end rebuilt at 10,000 with Wiseco pistons and Boysen reeds. I just had her serviced and run through by Nichols Sportbikes in Milpitas. They went through the whole machine and have her running tip top! including; coolant and brake fluids flushed, new battery, gear oil change and had the forks re-sealed. The tires were replaced around 12,000 miles or so along with fresh brake pads. Plenty of life on all.

This bike is a beautiful Italian specimen that loves to flaunt her stuff. The decals are not in perfect shape, but are in great condition for the age. The bike decals came original on top of the clear coat, so after 21 years they have some sun fade, minor wrinkling and an occasional worn edge. The bike has never been put down, and the original fairings are in perfect shape. She is a street machine and I take it out regularly for the Italian tune-ups to keep her purring like the hot cougar she is.

She is original with the following exceptions;
- Arrow full exhaust (you're welcome, future owner!)
- Toby steering damper (again... you're welcome)
- Aftermarket turn signals (They were on the bike when I got it, never changed them but I have 2 of 4 of the original signals which can still be found on AF1)
 

I have the owners manual, service record receipts, workshop manual and other parts (gaskets, screws, brackets, passenger pegs and passenger seat). I also have an OEM tank decal replacement kit (if you're not a fan of the awesome, road pounding patina of the current tank decals).

Bahrain track days

Tue, 17 Dec 2013 00:00:00 -0800

A few months ago, expat (and ex racer) John Beddall made contact to ask if I fancied doing some track day instruction out in Bahrain.  After thinking about it for two seconds, flights were booked and a plan was put in place to look after around forty riders for a day at the Bahrain International Circuit (BIC).  Young Taylor Mac was also recruited to look after any tasty riders that I couldn’t deal with   The Brits out there love their bikes, however, quite a few locals also turned up plus a few others from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar.  Most were on high end Superbikes, like S1000s, Panigales and RSV4s but there was also a healthy number R6s and new 675Rs.   Although this fabulous Hermann Tilke designed circuit is around ten years old incredibly it has never hosted a bike race.  The highlight of the year there is F1 but being owned by the Bahrainian Royal family, there is no desperate need for the circuit to operate as a profitable business.  The track reminded me of Qatar but much more interesting as some great undulations have been built into its desert location. We shared the track with Supercars on the day (20mins on/20mins off) and as you might imagine it was betty swollocks for seven hours in the 30 plus temperatures.  As usual there was a few offs with poor old RS1000 Aprilia mounted Andy breaking his femur early in the day.  Two other buddies appeared to swap bikes mid air in another incident but fortunately escaped unhurt.In the evening everyone stayed for an al fresco dinner in the paddock with the craic going on for hours as the Fosters kept flowing.   All in all it was a brilliant trip and it has left me thinking there could be cost effective ways of getting Brits out there for track days next winter.  I'll keep you posted.Cape Town next to make my racing comeback at the Killarney 8 hour on a CBR150 Honda.  Hopefully I can manage the beast, I'll post a full report next week.

WSBK 2013: Magny-Cours Race Report

Mon, 07 Oct 2013 00:00:00 -0700

Tom Sykes snapped up a pair of wins at Magny-Cours, setting himself up in good position to capture his first World Superbike Championship at the season finale in Jerez in two weeks. The Kawasaki rider scored his series-leading eight and ninth victories of the season, giving him a commanding 37-point cushion over Eugene Laverty and 38 points ahead of Sylvain Guintoli. Sykes needs only score at least 13 points in total over the final two races at Jerez to secure the championship.

Moto3. Recession racers?

I've sat through enough manufacturer' presentations recently to know that we're in trouble. Ignoring the still booming Asian markets, the rest of the motorcycle World is in free-fall. Even looking at the figures optimistically we're still only selling half the volumes we were in pre-crash 2006.
