On the Lean - 1

There will be on or two more of these to follow in due course.

Taken at Snetterton on 13th.May, 1979 when there was a 100 mile Endurance race held at the circuit. I believe the rider is P.Soulas on a 996cc Kawasaki.

Nice action shot. I can't believe they can drive at that angle! It looks like he's about to crash.
Brian Walbey: Thankyou Jelya, some riders get even more down than this these days. Phew!!!!

Great action again here, like it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid. Will have to go through my files and find some more.
Very nice action shot. I like the tones here!
Brian Walbey: The colours of the bike seem to compliment the colour of the grass in the background.

Classic bike shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, will dig a few more out. Unfortunately I've only got old ones.

Lovely blast from the past Brian. I do not recognise the name, but those old bikes were great - I will maybe put up a shot or two soon, of the guys over here riding something similar in the Classic Bike class at regional racing. Kind regards, Neil.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Neil, I look forward to your classic shots. There is a good bi-monthly magazine published here called "Classic Racer" by the way.
Hi Brian, Nice shot !

This is my local circuit , i live about 20 miles away .

Cheers

Brian Walbey: Thanks John, I used to live about an hour away near Cambridge but now I am in Leicestershire and haven't been down to Snetterton for a long time sadly.
A classic shot indeed Brian, never made it to Snetterton, Oulton PArk was my local circuit but never had a camera with me when I went.
Brian Walbey: Now I've never been to Oulton Park Les but on the T.V.it looks a really picturesque circuit, and remember, never forget your camera.

You know what struck me first? That his leathers matched the colour of his bike.
Brian Walbey: They all seem to be colour co-ordinated these days Ellie when you see them on the T.V., corporate image I suppose.

A great action capture, and with thirty odd years of biking in my blood, you could say this shot is definitely my cup of tea.

I had similar leathers a few years ago to match my Lime green Eddie Lawson Rep ZRX1200R
Brian Walbey: Thanks for looking back at my picture from February Paul, nice to know you were a keen biker. You might find my posting for this coming Monday to your interest as well.
