Nah she's a bike rider. She stole my cool aluminum beach cruiser. With only one gear it is quite the workout in the hills!

Re: A pox on the boxer?
I wonder if a good stunt rider could spin a BMW around on one cylinder, like a top?

Might be the next big sales tool for the beemer folks. Get in cozy the the Gen-X crowd.

Re: BMW Boxer Cup Replaced By New Power Cup
It seems a class of bikes left out of the "fist bike" category are bikes like the ZZR600 or FZR600. They really should be classified as "value 600's" or something of the sort. If you like the fully faired street bike look, want to be able to tour, ride twisties, and cruz around town all at a good price these bikes are hard to beat. The more I read about them the more impressed I am with them. In the real world these might be some of the best do-it-all street bikes out there.

Did you notice that my post was moderated down? This means that once again Kook is a liar and he's renewed.. as we knew he would.

Re: Boxers vs briefs
How about they just go with an old Pratt & Whitney R4360 Wasp Major? I think it makes 3000+HP at sea level. It would certainly validate the name "Power Cup", although you might need larger wheels, and a little extra splash of fuel...

Re: BMW Boxer Cup Replaced By New Power Cup
That's a fair comment but the Boxer Cup was run in addition the 250cc twostrokes AND the SUPERBIKES in the 200 (2003). That made for a good day of racing, on Sunday. I'm usually there for multiple days but for the sport to grow I believe it must appear interesting and exciting any time someone happens to go to "the Races". It's obvious that most of the people that "do" bike week are almost unaware of the Races and/or don't attend. This year THURSDAY??? looks to be the best lineup by far IMHO.

Unless I'm mistaken they used to, at one time, run The Supercross and Road Racing events on the same day. I can think of no safety concerns not to, I could be wrong. I would like to see SUPERBIKES in the 200, Superstock, Supersport, Formula Extreme and Supercross run on the same day, Sunday. I think that lineup would set attendance records. I think it is wrong that they don't allow infield camping (unlike at other Speedway events) and I don't like cars parking along the infield fence, (which restricts prime viewing areas from many for the benefit of few) other than for Handicaped People while I'm at it!
