Can only tell you what I've been told mate ;) as not a biker myself. My mate is an ex motorbike racer who used to race with Barry Sheen, he's now a photographer and have got to know him through my racing.

Bloke who owns the bike is Brian Robinson, he's known Brian since he was 13 and introduced him to motorcycle racing at Cadwell Park when Brian was 16 at the Yamaha 350 production race, where Brian won all 3 races and won novice of the day :)

Brians competed in over 30 TT races and is an independent motorcycle engineer now who looks after Jamie Whithams bikes for Goodwood so think he knows his stuff :smthumbup

Sorry for hi-jacking your thread nwwil :)
