Wood-Rotax Next Generation


This is Matt Weidman on the Wood Rotax twin. Yes, it used to wear a roundel, but the engine was made by Rotax in Austria and the chassis by Ron Wood in California, so it's a Wood Rotax and that's the name it entered the first GNC twins race of 2010 under. Weidman rode the bike for the first time on the Friday of the Yavapai, Arizona round and made the main the next day. That is pretty incredible.
BMW? Nein, nein, nein (not till they give Ron some support). GI

Good on all involved, nice to see the both names together on a new bike

That is probably my fave flat tracker of all time (which just goes to show how new I am to this game).

Hm...I wonder if it's possible to build a similar one as a street tracker. Didn't Ron Wood say something about the electrics beeing a right bother?

/D
