          "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

              You should pop the rear screen out and run it like that. :D :D

                Made it to supercruise 6 for a shakedown. The week leading up to it was full of late nights getting as many little details as possible sorted including modding my trailer to get it to fit (not sure if i should post in towing einstein thread). The ECU tune was just enough to get it started and be able to drive it onto the trailer so the plan was to spend the day doing little runs and getting the tune right. Unfortunately the windows xp laptop i was using to program the ECU gave up a couple of days beforehand and I couldn't get my usb to serial adapter to work on my windows 7 machine. Pissed about until 2 in the morning the night before then spent a large part of the day at supercruise trying to get it to work without any luck. In the end I gave up and just drove it as it was and hoped it wouldn't break. It would hit a wall and miss like crazy above about 3500 RPM so had to short shift the whole day which probably helped it survive. Despite this I had a great time and was happy with how it went otherwise.

                Had an issue with the front wheels rubbing when cornering and braking so lifted the front coilovers a bit to fix this and the shifter got a bit stuck between gates a couple of times but this was probably mostly due to my lack of skill. Behaved quite predictably around corners and I only looped it once... which no doubt is because I'm hopeless but I'm blaming it on the ancient second had tyres.

                Got 2 months to sort out the issues and build a new trailer before the next supercruise but I'm ready for a bit of a rest first.

                        Love it (still :p )

                        I've seen trailer set up like that for sprint cars etc. Drive over the top and have all your tools etc underneath.

                            There's a guy up here has a second ramp on his trailer - stacks a F5000-ish single seater and a clubman on it. looks retarded, hasn't rolled it yet!
