A main dealer's open day may not sound like it's the most relevant event for the Streetfighters blog, but when it involves stunts, horsepower readouts and the SF merchandise stand - like the Rocket Centre Open Day on Saturday July 11th - it's worthwhile mentioning!
Aside from the usual open day stuff (clothing, new bikes, salesman banter etc), there'll also be the Dynojet mobile dyno in attendance - Rockets actually have their own dyno, but to make life easier, logostically speaking, and allow people to see the bikes being dyno'd, the Dynojet truck is brought in to allow anyone to find out their bike's power output for just a fiver. Last year's best was 185bhp from a Gixer Thou, so there's room for improvement there...
There's also the Vertical Trix stunt team doing displays,and they're also taking their wheelie machine along if anyone wants a play.
various racing luminaries, including Leon Haslam, will also be in attendance, and there's live music, trampolines, and bouncy castle thingy and, best of all, face painting!
All proceeds from the open day will be going to the air ambulance.
The Rocket Centre is in Blackburn, Lancashire, just off the M56.
