Lose the first day of testing has not affected us too , we could try everything we had planned and I think the track conditions were not very good on Tuesday, because it was shot very quickly.

I'm still not perfect in the back, but the bike is going well. We have reduced the chattering and some minor modifications we tested with the rear shock, among other things. So far has been quite positive. Just wait to see what we have for the next test and hopefully we can improve some more. Now I have only wanted to get home to see Adriana and wait for the baby. "
