Got some photos from years back when Nate came over to Le-Mans to ride the factory boxers it was good fun to meet him.

As for buying ex racers!! When the Boxercup series was on it was quite heavily policed ECU’s with race chips were dished out on a Friday and bikes were cheacked on dynos as with all one make series it’s who can cheat the best and the trick with the 1100 was to run the bike with a little oil as possibly to cut down on drag buy an ex racer? Not likely.

I thought Nate hung around this board for a bit back when it was going strong. Pretty sure he did as he is still a registered user. But, maybe he deleted all his posts, can't remember anymore... it was like 50 years ago.

I could be remembering something that didn't happen... but I seem to recall that Ralf organised a track day (or some event) with Nate.
