Out and about with my Camera, it was qualifying for the BSB and here is the pole man on the full HRC, money no abject, Blade. Ryuichi Kiyonari…remember that name guys, I think Honda are grooming him (and the bike) for bigger things.
Remember who else used to ride the HM Plant bikes? Ole Neil hisself.
Wondered what kind of company would sponsor a BSB team.....HM Plant is the UK distributor for Hitachi earth moving equipment....how this advertising helps to sell earth moving equipment is one of life's great mysteries.
Guess it is no stranger than the one-time sponsor of a big-time AMA team....Bruce Transportation Group......who's business is providing school buses to rural counties in Vermont....go figure how an AMA deal helps them.

A Japanese rider... on a premiere Honda team... in MotoGP maybe? You know they would love that. Heck, short of Okada and now Tamada, who else has there been?
Love the Kawi pic. That lean angle PLUS he is still trailing the brakes.
Roadkill, I think it’s because the business owner is a bike race enthusiast. I know quite a few guys who put lots of money into the sport and their business interests are a little obscure, miles away from bikes.
999, Kiyonari was in GPs but I think he wasn’t ready, he's only 22. Watched him today, two dominating wins and to be honest his performance was machine like. His team mate Michael Rutter who leads the championship must be wondering what to do to beat him, he was that good. I think Kiyo could still win the championship.
Tripod R, yes I took the photos.
RC BS, that’s a good point and when the bike first appeared in this livery there was a few raised eyebrows.
He's come a long way. Two years ago at Assen he qualified next to last (22nd) on the Telefonica Honda. He was 3.9 seconds off the pole time and was out qualified by 3 Kawasakis, 2 Suzukis and one of the Proton smokers! Good for him!

My main lens is a 300mm 2.8 canon lens, used mainly with a 1.4 extender. (teleconverter)
Outside the full blown pro digital canon cameras, they cost a small fortune, the 20d is the only digital camera that I’ve ever seriously considered……I think it’s that good.
Same here, mate....mighty fine camera. Super value for the money, good choice.
I used to have a high-end Nikon but lost it due my own fault. Second time I have done that so now I am quite content with my new Fuji Finepix S5100 w/ both of the extra lens available (wide angle and telephoto). Only 4 megapixels but super sharp...did a lot of legwork before buying it.
Super camera you have there and a good sense of how to use it! Send us some more pics when you can.
