A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE ASKED ME WHY I USE THE NAME HIGGSPEED, SO AS ITS MY WEBSITE! I THOUGHT I WOULD TELL YOU THE STORY.
IT ALL STARTED AS A BIT OF A JOKE WHEN I WAS CLUB RACING AND THE LADS I WORKED WITH AT THE TIME STARTED CALLING ME HIGGSPEED AS A BIT OF A LAUGH, TAKING THE MICKEY OUT OF ME.
WELL AS THESE THINGS ALWAYS DO , IT STUCK!! THEN WE STARTED USING IT ON MY RACE BIKES AND ON OUR TEAM SHIRTS FOR THE MANX GRAND PRIX. I HAVE USED IT AS MY E MAIL ADDRESS FOR YEARS NOW AND WHEN I STARTED THIS EXPANSION CHAMBER BUSINESS IT JUST SEEMED TO FIT!
SO THERE YOU ARE , YOUR CURIOSITY HAS BEEN MET. JUST TO DEMONSTRATE THE STORY HERE IS A PICTURE OF ME ON MY GSXR750K5 RACE BIKE AT ANGLESEY.
DAVID AKA HIGGSY AKA HIGGSPEED !!

I just had a good weekend at Angelsey though, 1 DNF (timing slipped) 2 second places and finally a win.
