bar end mirrors...


... are on the W now. - pros: lower silhouette, the position works better than expected; cons: i dislike the look a bit, they give a closer image in the mirror and therefore less overview

trackrace meeting bielefeld 2011

... arriving @ the trackrace meeting the bad weather already left a sign:


... real old paint. - i whish the paint on my W650 was looking like that!


... inside the arena - really impressive curves!


... but again & again there was rain.


... and the track was very slippery like that. - and it seemed there's no racing for today.


... i fell in love with this Norton CS1



... and this one - Saroléa OHV 500 Supersport.


... the rain left time for closer looks on various bikes.

... love these open valve mechanics.

... nice clutch(?) lever.

... love these bar-end-levers.





...then these three dudes carried their bikes into the arena for a photosession



... this lured others into the arena and slowly the sky cleared!

... the track is open!

... but the end of the race was already on the horizon.

... old indians never die :)


... a few minutes later she was all wet again.

... great event - hopefully with better weather in the future.
