Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki's Shane 'Shakey' Byrne is in a positive frame of mind after the PBM team wrapped up its pre-season testing programme in Spain on Monday.

Byrne, who switched to the team from Honda for the 2012 MCE British Superbike Championship, is impressed with the ZX-10R and travels back to the UK in buoyant mood.

The Rapid Solicitors PBM Kawasaki team tested at Aragon and Cartagena before bringing the shakedown to a conclusion on Monday at Almeria.

Byrne said: "It has been a good end to the test and we are definitely making progress. After Cartagena we knew there were still some modifications we want to make but I am feeling pleased with how we were running today and that we were able to run laps consistently.

"There are things we still need to test but I am happy where we are at now before heading home. We know that Almeria is notoriously hard for tyres but we have had some consistent runs today so overall we are really positive. I need to thank the boys as they have done a great job."
