Estrella Galicia 0,0 joins the pinnacle of World Motorcycle Racing with Honda Racing Corporation

Estrella Galicia 0.0 takes an important step forward in its commitment to motorcycle racing sponsorship as it partners Honda Racing Corporation for 2013.


Famous World Champions such as Freddie Spencer, Mick Doohan, Alex Crivillé and Casey Stoner have won Championships with the factory team and this year, for the first time since Crivillé and Gibernau, two spanish riders will once again defend the colours of the Repsol Honda Team, the experienced Dani Pedrosa and ‘rookie’ Marc Márquez, will become the most exciting couple on the grid for the Spanish fans. Estrella Galicia will also become the official beer in HRC’s hospitality.


This is the third season in which Estrella Galicia 0.0 is present in the MotoGP World Championship, supporting Marc Márquez in his brilliant career, when he won the Moto2 World Championship last season . The beer brand now takes a step up reaching the premier class with HRC's factory riders Pedrosa and Márquez. Pedrosa, the current MotoGP World Championship runner-up has a brilliant experience in the top class and will be one of the favourites for the title in 2013.


The first images of the riders wearing their new leathers with Estrella Galicia 0,0 logo will be available on the 24th January, after the team’s official presentation in Madrid, where Pedrosa and Márquez will unveil the 2013 RC213V bike, and it’s new livery.

Awesome eagle eye headlights

Well I doubt I will ever be brave enough to buy a conversion like this but saw these and the think they look amazing.

New rear suspension link (AKA Dog Bone)

As a fan of making the CBR1000RR that little bit better, I stumbled across a shock linkage from Lee's Cycles.
The Honda CBR1000RR comes with a standard Shock linkage of 175mm. HRC provide these in different lengths (170mm-172mm) to change the handling of the bike.
The Lee's cycles link is 170mm long and is based on the HRC version at a fraction of the cost. 
HRC List 4 different links listed for the blade:
1) 52470-MFL-R10 CONN ROD ASSY., CUSHION R1 (Standard) 2) 52470-NLR-A20 CONN ROD ASSY., CUSHION (MEL) 166.2mm 3) 52470-NLR-A30 CONN ROD ASSY., CUSHION (P2) 178.8mm 4) 52470-NLR-A40 CONN ROD ASSY., CUSHION (P4) 170mm
In Brief, MEL is the most aggressive, P4 is less aggressive, P2 is quite flat and the unlisted is offers the characteristics of the P2 but adjusts ride height.
The idea in general gives better rear grip on the rear and raises the seat somewhat to transfer some weight to the front of the bike. 
Besides the obvious advantages to the handling 5mm means less material and a few…
