Slowcock's Racing - VRRA 2017 Rd.4 Calabogie Race Report

For our fourth and final VRRA round of the year, we found ourselves at Calabogie Motorsports Park for the second time this season. This track is awesome! It has 20 turns and is over 5km long with exceptional grip. This was our third time visiting the track and as a result it's starting to feel more familiar and we're figuring out what-to-do-where a little better.

2018 Yamaha XSR700 - November 2017 Window Bike

After having the XSR900 in our window last September I was curious what I would think of the smaller, twin version. Unfortunately not being able to ride this one I can't give you a thorough comparison but based on looks alone I feel I appreciate the smaller somewhat more compact XSR700.

Octobers Window Bike is a bike that we are very familiar with, as it is one of our Slowcocks Racing P1-350's. The bike was built by Tim Voyer of 840 Racing out of North Bay. The bike started life as a street legal Honda CB350 Twin, and was transformed by Tim into a very competitive race bike which Thomas from Town Moto raced this year. The paint was done by Ryan Stack, a super talented and self-taught hobby painter out of Welland.

RIPPLE ROCK RACERS 1969 HONDA CB750 - AUGUST 2017 WINDOW BIKE

RIPPLE ROCK RACERS 1969 HONDA CB750 - AUGUST 2017 WINDOW BIKE

In the summer of 1969 I was just a teenager when Honda introduced its magical CB750. I remember seeing my first one at a little gas station in Winnipeg. Candy Gold paint, 4 cylinder engine and disc brakes made it revolutionary. The wail of the 4 exhaust pipes as the rider raced up the hill, echoing and reverberating long after the machine had disappeared, was forever burned into my mind. In 1970 Honda entered the CB750 into the Daytona 200 Roadrace as a pure factory racer called the CR750. They won!
