News Dec 1st 2007
Ok guys I know its a bit late but here it is at last. ZX10R.co.uk was asked to provide some hairy backed hard nuts for TWO magazine to see which of the sports bike owners ruled the roost. I now let one of our riders/members tell the story of the 2 days we had with TWO magazine.
ZX10R.co.uk members are 'Turf Wars' Winners!
The ZX10R is king of the litre sports bikes. Official!!!!!!!!
On August 11th this year, TWO magazine invited riders of ZX10r's to step up the 'Turf Wars' challenge to see which of the four jap 1000cc machines (R1's,Gsx-R1000's,Blades & ZX10R's) and their riders would be crowned KINGS.
Not only did we have a chance to win, but we got ourselves into a monthly motorcycle publication. Twice!
The challenges were hillarious, ranging from running up hills and press-ups in full riding kit to general knowledge questions. Oh, and eating cheesecake while wearing a helmet and gloves!
GRNINJA rounded up members to challenge the GSX-R1000 blokes, as the R1's were knocked out previously by the Blades.
Well after the heroic efforts of GRNINJA and his team we thrashed the Gixxers to go into the final , at 'Bruntingthorpe proving ground' on the 8th October.
We were up agaist the 'Blades' for this one. And as before GRNINJA rounded up willing volenteers to which was such a turn out in suport of 'ZX10R.co.uk ' we out numbered the blades nearly twice their number!
This was a walk in the park for us. With such challenges as wheelies, top-speed runs, drag races and knee-downs.(and running and eating challenges!)
Our riding spoke for itself and we were crowned 'Kings of the Turf Wars'.
We are proud of what our members achived that day, not only for the ZX10R but most importantly for this forum.
