Commenting via Facebook about his machinery line up for 2020, which includes the aforementioned Gordon Huxley Racing Kawasaki, he stated:
“I will be once again riding the Gordon Huxley Racing ZX10R, the bike has had a full overhaul with a few extra new parts and is ready to go for some winter sun in Cartagena, spain with No Limits Trackdays.
Looking forward to riding the bike there again and building on what we have learnt this year, as it’s the first place I rode the bike last year it will be a good test to see how we have developed.
Supertwin – I have decided to stick with the Super Twin for another year. For next year I will be building a new Z650, after giving it everything on my faithful ER6 and not being too far away from the front, I believe the swap to a lighter chassis along with a few small improvements we can be at the sharp end.
I’m excited to get the bike built and see how it rides compared to the heavy ER6 frame I’m currently using.”
