Overmarketed? I've seen lots of Japan commericials on TV but no Ducati ads.

Those aren't my words. I'm just beating KPaul over the head with his words about Ducati.

Default Re: Final Combined Wed/Thu Superbike and 600 Laptimes from Daytona Tire Testing

Cycle News is quoting Mladin -- http://www.cyclenews.com/ShowStory.asp?HeadlineID=4166 -- 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.

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

Default 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.

Default 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.

Default 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 http://www.silver-bullet.co.nz/news.php3?id=2038 remembering its summer here now.



Cheers

Merv.
