Project Bike Build: Yamaha R6, Part 2

The Superbikesupply.com Ryhno Racing project bike build is well under way. Currently, I’m taking time to tear down the bike. The first step of this project is taking off all of the street plastics, mirrors, turn signals, etc. since these parts are not needed nor allowed on a race bike.

Project Bike Build: Yamaha YZF-R6

Those of you who have followed me for a while now know that racing is more than just a hobby to me. Racing is my passion and part of my DNA. Ever since I began riding motorcycles when I was 16, I always wanted to race. My lifelong dream has been to race in the top professional series in the United States. I have worked hard and taken all of the steps to make that dream a reality. From my race license class in 2014 starting out on a 2009 Ninja 250, moving up to a first and then second gen SV650 and finally transitioning to a 2017 Yamaha YZF-R6 in 2023, motorcycle racing has been my drive and joy.

Final Impressions: REV’IT! Hyperspeed 2 Motorcycle Race Suit

We have come to the end of my CCS racing season and the perfect time for some final thoughts on my experience with the REV’IT! Hyperspeed 2 race suit. If I had to sum up the suit in one statement, it would simply be “quality and attention to detail, at an affordable price”. I’ve really grown to enjoy this suit and appreciate the finer points of its design.

Motorcycle Gear: REV’IT! Hyperspeed 2 Midseason Update

I have loved putting the REV’IT! Hyperspeed 2 race suit through it’s paces, other than testing crashability. Having a few race suits in my closet now, I have a solid base of comparison given my experience over the past few seasons. At this price point, I wouldn’t call this an entry level suit but when comparing to suits around the same dollar amount, I think REV’IT! has done a few things to make this suit stand out.

Motorcycle Gear: REV’IT! Hyperspeed 2 Race/Track Suit

We recently were given the opportunity to review the new REV’IT! Hyperspeed 2 race and track suit, and being a racer, I was thrilled. REV’IT! is known worldwide for their high-quality road and off-road gear, but they also have a line of track and racing gear that is every bit as high-quality. The Hyperspeed 2 suit is new for 2023, so we were grateful for the chance to sample this suit, along with a pair of their Quantum 2 gloves and an Excellerator undersuit they sent us with it. I purchased a pair of their up-spec Jerez 3 gloves for racing this season, so we set about to evaluate all four items for the 2023 racing season I was preparing for.

Riding The Yamaha MT-10 SP

When the MT-10 was first launched back in 2016, it struck a polarizing figure with that “love it or hate it” Japanese cyberpunk, transformer styling. Then add in that addictive R1-derived powerplant mated to a chassis that strikes a balance between aggressive and comfortable ergonomics. While out of the box many raved about the motorcycle, others felt some upgrades would really take things to the next level and really allow the bike to shine. Unfortunately, here in the USA we often are left wanting when special versions are released only in Europe or Asia. After the MT-10 was released it followed a similar pattern with an SP version, and we were left wishing we lived across the pond.

Pit Crew Life

Daytona for racing fans conjures up many different thoughts and images. For some it means the Rolex 24, some the Daytona 500, others it means soaking up some rays at Daytona Beach, but for a lot of us motorcycle riders it means Bike Week. Yet for me personally, it means one thing- the Daytona 200. And this year, I would be attending as a motorcycle racing pit crew member.
