It's been too long since we posted. But our excuse is - we've been incredibly busy! The CMR Team is very grateful for being so busy, thanks to all our customers from around the world.
We'd like to update our readers about successful events worldwide, stories of the many riders using our CMR Yamaha TZ750 frame and fuel tank kits. This post is just a sample.
We'll start with New Zealand...you couldn't be farther away from Canada. They're actually having summer!
Our great friends in New Zealand have sent us photos of their machinery, beautiful builds all. Alistair Wilton purchased the CMR-framed Yamaha TZ750 from Norm Randall of Australia. Here are some photos of how Alistair wanted his bike to look. What a great job you have done Alistair!
Also from New Zealand is a new customer, Norm MacDonald, who's building a CMR-framed Yamaha TZ750. He sent us these photos to share with you. This bike will be ready for competition in time for the Phillip Island races in January of 2017!
Next we'd like to talk about our Australian Team entrant into the 2016 Phillip Island International Classic in January. This CMR framed Yahama TZ750 is owned by Phil and Roz Andrea and successfully raced by Marty Craggill. We'll tell you more in a later post but for now, here are some images.
This last photo shows Phil and Roz Andrea's Team. From left to right: Marty Craggill, Phil Andrea, Bill White & Roz Andrea.
Marty ran a very respectable 1.41 at the Phillip Island International Challenge in January 2016. At the support races for the First World SBK Round at Phillip Island February 2016, he ran low 1.40s.
So at the Barry Sheene Memorial races in Sydney, Australia in March, we are hoping for high 1.30s, if conditions are favourable. Congratulations to Phil, Roz, Bill and Marty for an outstanding performance. And to my good friend Jon Cornwell of Ohlins Canada who was over there on the other side of the world, helping out with the latest Ohlins suspension settings on his buddy Marty Craggill's race bike .
