Re: The death of the V-Twin continues
Overmarketed? I've seen lots of Japan commericials on TV but no Ducati ads.

Re: The death of the V-Twin continues
Those aren't my words. I'm just beating KPaul over the head with his words about Ducati.

Re: Final Combined Wed/Thu Superbike and 600 Laptimes from Daytona Tire Testing
Cycle News is quoting Mladin -- -- as saying that his big Gixxer is actually slower on the banking than Eboz's punched-out Kaw. The Suzuki is apparently making more power than it can get to the ground.

You forgot "Ducatis the Harleys of sportbikes" Buz.

If Bostrom doesn't win the AMA he should become a girl.

Getting to Know You...
Congratulations to all in the KPaulCook thread above. He's a pretty good guy when you get to know him, isn't he? Brave, too. A little suicidal, but brave.

Wheel speed
I remember some data aquisition posted from Daytona last yeat had the bike rear wheel speed at 180+ mph on the straight, but the bike itself was down 5+ mph from that. It seams that they are actually spinning the rear all the way around the track.

MO without KPaul would be like MO without Burns. They're two of the reasons I'm a regular reader. Good on ya jmeyn.

Re: Last time I looked the RC51 was a V-Twin
So much for death of the V-Twin. However I can see the fours being developed pretty quick. Out hjere in new Zealand the GSXR1000 and R1 are doing very well in production based superbike racing courtesy of Andrew Stroud (remember him) and others. Honda tried the RC51 last year but within our rules were no where near competitve enough so they have given up with it. Results of this weekends races here remembering its summer here now.

New Zealand should be banned for good weather.
