It’s been said that it would be good if shots of race bikes were in one thread so they don’t get lost with lots of other pics. I luuuuv the race bikes. The V&H series bikes were limited to certain mods but the bikes from other series were less confined and had room for handlebar changes and such.
In action or static here’s a place to put race bike pics. I’ll start with a couple favorites.

Awesome thread, glad you added it. It's cool to see these bikes in race form. I know the V&H series ended... but does anyone still race these bikes? If so, what class are they in?

Thanks Geno, I've seen Hutch56 on here but wasn't sure if he was still racing.

In the UK XR Trophy races bike numbers 1,2 and 3 were run by Harley Davidson UK who invited guest riders from all over the world, some were racers, some were magazine test riders and others from the biking world.

This is Guy Martin on bike 1 at Cadwell Park in 2010, his first time back out on a bike after his horrific fiery crash at the IOM TT. He did quite well!
