I was chatting with veteran road-racer Steven Ashkenazi up at the Robbo Pie Shop an hour or so ago. He was there with a couple of his old mates, and he was riding his wife's new Honda 400 Four. Now Steve's has ridden the odd bike or two, from before the first Six-Hour (in which he competed) to the present day, and he knows his bikes. I asked him what he thought of its LAMS status. He laughed loud and long. I gather he was suggesting that somehow, Honda are fudging the figures because the bike is restricted, but it sure doesn't ride like it is .
