Overlooked LDT bike choices

How about a 1200cc Suzuki Bandit?

I might actually get to the top of Crackington with this. But probably not. ;)

He'd have failed the section though; did you notice him footing?  And what about the tyres?  They didn't look compliant to me  ;D

Ha ha.  That reminds me of spectating at Simms in 2014 when some guy kept pushing his way to the front of the barrier at various places to video the competitors coming up the section.  He ended up with a flying stone striking him in the face, then he got carted off to hospital.  But, never say die, he continued videoing his experiences, which were published online, while in the ambulance and A&E  ::)

I think this guy may have hit on a guaranteed method of ensuring you keep your feet up.  ;D  it never crossed my mind to sit on the tank whilst going up a section. hahahaah. bonkaz.
