Lighten the mood

After all this chat about new clubs and where we will race I think it's time to get back to talking about bikes!!
So who is prepared to reveal how much their bikes weighed at snetterton??
Mine was 169kg but it is pretty standard at the moment and god knows how much fuel I had in it probably enough for three more races!!!!
Just interested as clearly my lack of pace is down to weight and NOT MY ABILITY

Mines a 160 ish if I recall correctly, but the turbo I have just added to it will probably push the weight up a bit, but will come in useful at Castle Combe in 3 weeks time

What I really want to know is Badger fitting a NON race winning Transponder and if so could it prevent him from ever winning again

mine was 157kg with just over 2L fuel so i got rid of battery in favour of a lego one so should be about 155.5kg now-

- if i get a good dump before race that makes bike and rider combined about 225kg- (75kg more than a moto3)

Miles I've entered Mini Twins at Combe, even if I couldn't get a entry I would have gone along to help my mates. I have done this a lot over the years if it hasn't clashed with our racing
