Update of 27/05/2001
Finally I have a new rear tyre, the latest D207 J spec apparently made
for the Hayabusa. Relatively cheap at under A$300. So how does it go
? Still new it does feel a tad slippery, as in not gripping the road with
authority as per the AVONs. The profile is noticeably rounder and the
tread pattern as per the usual D207. Personally I think they feel a tad
more isolated from the road. More updates on the tyre over the next few
Due to unforseen circumstances I left the converted dyno pic files disk
somewhere...I will try and find them for next week.

Another huge week, managed to complete updates to
the pictures site. Couldn't finish the update on the survey so there'll be
a mega stats update next week. Just very busy with stuff.
My bike will receive the latest
Dunlop D207 J spec tomorrow so next week will include its review and new
sub-frame news and dyno graphs courtesy of Kai.
Update of 13/05/2001
Despite being hugely occupied with other matters I
have complied the results of Survey 2. I'm trying to complete the pictures
site update due next weekend so not too many site changes. Quite a few new
pictures will be available, some very nice Hayabusai out there !
As for my new rear tyre...well I'm
still considering a few brands. Stay tuned for news next week.
Update of 06/05/2001
Well, I've made the decision. The bike will
stay till the 2nd anniversary. It's a great time to sell here due to the
expectant 6 months of dry weather. Why ? I still wouldn't mind riding
around for a little while more hence the June date.
This site of course will still
continue if I get settled quickly the only new bike will be another Hayabusa.
Although I am tempted to get a dual purpose or more touring orientated bike.
