New Sponsor: Woodcraft
When I started converting my 2011 ZX-10R to a track bike I wanted to protect her as much as possible from my lack of knowledge and skill. I researched like crazy and discovered that I should have two things changed on the bike before going to the track:
* Rear set
And I should also add two things:
* Frame sliders
* Case covers
In my research one name came up over and over again; Woodcraft. Everyone's opinion was simple, buy their products. They are built by racers for racers. At the time I figured if their stuff was good enough for racers it had to be good enough for me.
Years later, I am still using those original parts I bought. Even though I have crashed since then, every single part I bought is still usable.
I am extremely pleased to announce that they have accepted me into their racer program for 2015. I have already made my first purchase under the sponsorship and I have to say, the experience was amazing. They really treat their riders well. The experience was far better than I have come accustomed to in this field as a privateer racer. It wasn't just a matter of "hey you are giving them money, of course they are nice". Spend time in the racing field and you will find a lot of vendors don't subscribe to that opinion. Woodcraft went above and beyond to SAVE me money as part of the conversation.
I am looking forward to a very busy and exciting season in 2015. I am extremely pleased that Woodcraft is along with me for the journey.
