IN SEARCH OFPERFECTION

Last year, Motorcycle Diaries rode the new Yamaha R1 from Berlin to Marseille. The search for the elusive “perfect” feeling while exploring, however, was not found. This ignited the strong desire to seek out the quintessential road for the R1. A road that would align with the bike, a road without signs or speed limits.

ATTACK THE TRACK

It was clear. The bike could only unleash its full potential on the racetrack. After adding sticky tires and carbon fiber bodywork to the bike, it was time to search for the perfect track.

First, they tried Jerez in Spain, but that track did not get them into the right rhythm. Then they had another go during a hot and crowded track day in Assen. Again, they couldn’t get to find the feelings they were after.

PARADISE FOUND

The quest for the ultimate playground continued. So, where could their paradise be? The answer was really close to home. Tucked away in the Belgian Ardennes, there used to be a road.

And that road became a track. That road is now the legendary circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. That’s where they finally found the flow.
