Hey everyone,

Introduced myself briefly in the introductions forum i'm a proud owner of a soon to be put on track 929 and a nice 954 road bike, hoping to start logging the work and track days on my 929 on Youtube. I did have a track day booked for yesterday at Llandow but cancelled due to Covid so gave me an excuse to go through the bike, haven't owned it long and i'm glad I've done this as found a couple little things I need to do, some will be in the next video as still recording it as and when I get time.

Let me know what you think, be gentle i'm not the best at talking on camera but all criticism welcome. Here's the link to the first episode:


Cheers Dan

Fairings come off a lot easier without all the headlight crap, etc.

Have you considered Dzus fasteners for the fairings to aid remove/replace speed? I'm assuming tracks will allow them.

Ye I am going to look into them before I put everything back together, Dzus do seem pretty common on track bikes. Next up is tyre swapping and a few other bits I've found that need doing (y)

Good video Dan, I really like the bike, it does what it says on the tin!
Thank you very much, ye it is what it is, never going to be a show winner but as long as it rides reasonable and I can have some fun on it, I will be more than happy.

So here it is, my first track day at Pembrey, absolutely awesome day but I did lowside in the second session :ROFLMAO: got it up and together for the rest of the day though (y)

Did quite an in depth talk about the day and how it runs if anyone is interested. Let me know what you think.

Ouch Dan! Actually the crash didn't look that bad. So no soreness at all? Regardless, good stuff & informative video (y)

I was VERY lucky, only pain was a slightly sore right knee and I thought my back was very slightly tweaked, like I say in the video I literally could have done another days riding the next day (weather my body would stiffen up I don't know). No obvious ill effects since so think I got off lightly. Looking forward to my next one now! Thanks for replying :)

Great videos and info.
Why don´t you ride Track Days in one piece skin suit?
Must be much safer if you crash and feel better on track.

Understand that. In Sweden you are not allowed to enter Track Days unless you have real good skin suit and back protector. Every Track Day they inspect your bike and your clothes.
I did 5 Track Days before my gear box did´nt want to work in fourth gear anymore sadly. Know Bike is at mechanic for total overhaul on engine and gear box for maybe one more Track Day this year or ready for next year. Also have a movie here.

Ye over here in the UK we are pretty poor when it comes to safety and bike inspections unless competing, applies to a lot of motorsport over here to be honest. I've been keeping an eye on your thread, good watching your videos, I aspire to ride my 929 as quickly as you ride that 954 (y)
