|It was a good start for the Repsol Honda Team in Laguna Seca. Both riders had
their first outing on the challenging American track also taking the opportunity
to try some new parts in this morning's session.|
Dani found pace very quickly and after two runs with his 'standard' bike, he swapped to the new one he first tried in the Mugello test, with new engine and new chassis, to set the fastest time (1'21.424), less than 1 tenth off the circuit record (1'21.376, Casey Stoner 2010). Casey also did his last run with the new engine mounted on his 'standard' chassis, which he feels more familiar with, and also improved his lap time to finish third with a fastest lap of 1'21.829, 4 tenths off his team mate.
The action continues in Laguna Seca with the second free practice scheduled at 14h10 local time (23h10 C.E.T).
Well I doubt I will ever be brave enough to buy a conversion like this but saw these and the think they look amazing. I find that a great deal of headlight conversion often look tacky and dread it when I hear of angel or demon eyes. These however seem tasteful and do seem to suit the lines of the bike.
