'99 Proton KR3

So last week I stopped by my friend's shop to drop off some stuff and we start shooting the sh*t. About a half hour goes by and we start talking about MotoGP, Rossi, Kenny Roberts... blah blah blah. Then he gets this little look in his eyes and says, "Oh, did I show you what Kenny dropped off?". I say, "nope" and he says, "I know you'll appreciate this".

We walk into his showroom (the place I can spend hours) and this is standing before me... 1999 Proton KR3 MotoGP bike that was piloted by Jean Michael Bayle.







It's simply jaw dropping how light every single component is on that thing. He pulled off the tank and handed it to me. I'm guessing it weighs about 6oz. Nutty.

Not for sale.. but rumor is that one other (there was 2 or 3 factory bikes) might hit eBay for shits and giggles.

A&A Racing in San Carlos. Private shop but he does bring his toys out at most races. Last year he had that TZ750 up at Alices when Doc Wong had the shindig.
