Suddenly it is most fun AMA class going. Where is Cashley? Build me a Buell, woman, I am ready to re-enter the Arena. I will be needing some sort of cape also and a large motorhome...

I'm thinking you'd look good in an ascot. Kind of like Fred on Scooby Doo.

MORE like FRED GASSIT. Outtamyway ya fuggnkunz...



seriously, how cool if Triumph would get off its ass and build a nice 675 to mix it up with Buells and Ducatis and four-bangers. Should allow like 2500cc singles too...

Should be an exciting year. Wonder how many Triumphs we'll see.



What is the current rule regarding the Ducati motors in Formula Xtreme?

equally important to the Daytona 675 racing is the Ducati ss1000 desmo bike. Ducati is selling track versions of the desmo bike for under $9000 in plastic that has already removed all lighting.

Ducati Supersport 1000s up to 1100cc. In addition, liquid-cooled 4-valve twin-cylinder bikes (Ducati 749, Suzuki SV650) can be punched out to 850cc, and air-cooled Twins using pushrod valve actuation (Moto Guzzi) can have up to 1200cc of displacement.

After the race you could pop out the piston and use it for a coffee table.

"All bikes except 900cc-135-cc 4 stroke air/oil-cooled 2 valve pushrod twin cylinders will have to tow around a 50 lb. boat anchor at the end of a 10 ft. logging chain"





There you go JB, now your Buell will be competitive, if you're wearing the ascot, I'd go with white E.K. stars and stripes bell bottom leathers and 3/4 helmet with orange bubble shield for the total effect..

Bitter, aren't we? Y' know what, i don't really care if Buell wins or not but i respect them for GIVING IT A SHOT ya know what I mean? I bet they are working on new top-secret engine right now and you will be picking black *****y crow feathers from between yellow hillbilly teeth any year now...



Um, If the rules are so tilted in Buell's favor, why haven't they won one yet? Yes they have finished a few.
