Default Re: Well it didn't take long. kpaul's short rebuttal

Ah but shortride, its not obscure. I´ll put it a bit simplier to help you understand better: The worst case is not a person who is often wrong. Much worse is a person that is not all that often wrong, but absolutely and categorically refuses to accept that sometimes he is wrong. I hope "categorically" was not too long a word, sorry about that.

Your analogy is amusing but not original and certainly not me.. The kPPI remains the same as when I invented it. Changing the rules would be dishonest.

So now that you understand that you are wrong, can we drop it now, or do I need to put it more simply, so you can understand it?

Default Thanks for the constructive criticism

You are absolutely right. This only strengthens the case for the V-4....

I prefer Seruzawa's Price Performance Index.



1- Any bike that makes you whoop it up and laugh like a fool = 100.00

2- Any bike that doesn't make you whoop it up and laugh like a fool = 0



All else is pure bullshyt.

Default Re: One Racer's Opinion Regarding The Future Of AMA Superbike

I think overall i'd have to agree but i have these observations.



I would observe that only dunlop and bridgestone tires have had the catastrophic failures. in motogp or ama. pirelli and michelin have not.



lap times drive racing and right now it appears the 800's are turning faster lap times during testing. i can't figure out if that means they are safer. since top speeds are down that must mean corner speeds are up.



so is it more likely that the 800's will increase safety? I don't know for sure, but i don't think so. i believe the limits are now with tire grip and durability, not engine displacement.



as for the debate, i think ama doesn't need both superstock and superbike. superstock will allow more people to afford it. it is a way cheaper bike to build and without superbikes, better contingency money.

Default This intelligent post of LightninRVF750 needs more visibility

pdad13 said "Alas, they (V-4s) were too complex, expensive and heavy--oh, and not all that competitive."

LightninRVF750 replied with

Right... the VF/VFR and the RC30 won five consecutive AMA Championships from 1984-1988; won the first two WSB Championships in 1988-1989; the RC45 won both the AMA and WSB in 1995; and Joey Dunlop and company won SIXTEEN consecutive Isle of Man TT's from 1983-1998 on VF/VFR/RC30/RC45's.

Nope, just not competitive at all...

Excellent use of facts and data LightninRVF750 you are my hero
