Technical and tyres
Lot of Rubbish spoken about oil ! How good the oil is in code on front or back of tub.Quite often there are four or so standards ,its same stuff ! just Japan America Europe etc use their own codes.
Decide to use "semi synth" or "fully Synth" (dearer).I use semi as I tend to change every 3000 miles or less.If I was doing a big tour and would miss my 3000 change ,would use "fully synth" as it lasts generally twice as long.
Some Bargains about , Motul "semi synth" and JMC fully "synth both same spec" JASO MA2 (japanese standard) APSI SL (American).I'm sure I paid less in this case for 'fully synth".Is JMC crap coz its cheap brand ?? (german). How can it be, when its actually meets the same standards JASO MA2 etc..Stop looking at BRAND look at standard it meets !! JASO MA2 latest spec.
@alol I tend to agree. Nothing against Shakey but I was routing for any of the other riders to win the series. Saw the Donington Park round and enjoyed it but the main events were a bit of a let down because of over dominance by the Ducati team.
Legal and insurance
we often SORN the gsxr over winter and as it wont be used , I aint paying tax on sometime that wont be out to play , its always insured , no point in faffing about with the insurance as any adjustments come with a administration fee so leave it insured . its off road and garaged . we have timed the MOT brought it forward to the tax renewal date , so its always legal , the zxr always remains taxed as you never know when a good weather day when the nasty road salt has gone will come your way .
i think you will have to check the small print on your agreement or call the provider if your unsure .

I filled in the survey as well, highlighting all the mistakes.
I'm not too bothered if Chroma run it again so long as they get everything correct and dont make so many fuck ups. Understanding bike racing and the basic rules might help them. Lets hope the new reversed grid for WSB R2 doesn't confuse them in the same way as BSB R2 grid positions did.
