Very Impressive. Both John McGuinness and Guy had some time learning the new changes on the bikes and were very open to conversation. The new technology on the bikes allows them to be recharged in 3 hours instead of over night as it was before.

Well worth the trip out to the short 'stop start' quirky little track, hidden away in the Forests 70 K's below Tokyo. Thank you all and to Mugen for the sandwiches and view of the bikes.
