Nothing shows up who is the best rider quite like making everybody race on the same bike.

Default Some, Reason...Others Ride (what I meant. to say).

Jungkvist, cant affordÂ…the reason, or the rational, of othersÂ…he just rides!



Hate when I get things outa sequence, and then push send, by mistake.

You is so right. And, I hope none of them bang valve covers on their K-bikes. I was thinking this was the new GS race series. I didn't realize these were the inlines going at it. Should still be fun to watch.

It'd be fun to see a bike with those total-loss water-cooled brakes that those big trucks run.

I liked the Boxer Cup, I thought it was a good support race at Daytona. I think this new series will be entertaining. I'd like to ride one of these new K1200R's and see one in person, to me it seems interesting.



I was talking to a guy (22, never rode) yesterday that was interested in getting into Motorcycling, he asked me if I thought an "R1" would be a good starter bike... "OK, what about an R6?"...



One of my nephews, 16, 6'3", maybe 160, (he has ridden an XR-100 for a couple of years) asked me what I thought would be a good starter bike (for the street), I kinda threw out "maybe a GPZ250" but more and more I am thinking a Suzuki DR200SE or Yamaha XT225 dual purpose bike would be better for the first six months to a year. He has wanted me to go to bat for him with his folks but he has to fight that fight, it's hard to encourage those you care about to ride on the street. I will help all I can if he gets the go ahead but he has to have the passion to make it work. If something happened and I was the "instigator" it would be hard to accept.
