MY SHANNONVILLE TEST ON RS125 WITH MICHELLE DUFF, POSTPONED
Here we are in late April and the temperature hangs around 3 degrees. Due to this, we will not be testing this weekend in Shannonville. The Dave Hughes Honda RS125 or the TZ350 Yamaha will have to wait until later in May, for me. Couple reasons, its too cold--can't really get to true testing with such minimal grip.We are anticipating 10 degrees max on Saturday, if lucky. Plus Michelle has an additional opportunity to fly to Germany for an Isle of Man TT pre-training, and maybe using her original machinery from Yamaha. We've postponed training until after she returns, its a combined decision. Fact remains, if my testing goes well, I'll race on Dave's Honda or Yamaha in the vintage races. I do hope it goes well, as you can imagine how fun this would be.
