Funny how the death of the Vtwin became the death of the Vtwin in racing and now it's the long, slow death of the Vtwin in racing.



I predict a million years from now, there is a 50/50 chance the earth will erupt in a ball of flames.

Default Great ball of fire.

When the world erupts, I predict it will be the last day of tractor-pulls.

"Another prediction by the Great Motorcycle Prophet (GMP) comes true.. "





Name any other one that came true, cause this one certainly didn't.

O how they howl when KP is right about a thing...



Big deal Ducati is dropping out, I don't remember even seeing any of them on the tube, they too far back out of the picture except when crashing...



No way a 1000cc 2-cyl. engine can make as much power as a 4-cyl. without spending about 5x as much $$$ maybe. I don't know how AMA didn't realize that when they changed the rules? another mentally challenged decision...



V2 used to have traction advantage, but that is out the window now that EFI is here.



Yeah, they should build a factory 749R and race Formula Xtreme, which would then be even more the most interesting class in AMA.

He's only got two weeks for the "$4 a gallon gasoline by summer" prediction.

Takes a big man to admit he's wrong there Longride. I don't mean physically big. You still backing W? He's really making a case for staying the course.



"Because you guys are wrong."



funny if not so tragic.

We just had a W flame war jb. I would really rather this stay a Vtwin flame war.



You think this leaves the door open for the return of the VR1000 to Superbike racing?
