The oil needs to be made out of corn, but first, remove the v-twin from your Harley. It is ancient, under powered, and will be no fun to ride on.



While you are doing that, I will sleep with your wife/girlfriend/mother.

Yep that R1, GSXR1000, CBR1000RR and CRB600RRR are terrible better to have a bike with ancient motor that cost more.. Good thinking..

I'd rather have the Buell if I could only have one bike and those were my five choices.

Default It's not the displacement...

...that tweeks me: it's the liberal interpretation of production motorcycle that the AMA uses whenever thay have to in order to put a US manufacturer's bike on the grid. Then again, the AMA has a history of biasing it's decisions in favor of the good ole' USofA, too.



Bryan...remember the British invasion?

It's better to have the bike that's most fun to ride!

If AMA keeps the Formula Extreme as the premier class at Daytona, it may be worthwhile for Yamaha to build a all out racing bike using the Raodstar/warrior engine.

Since most all bikes are fast enough for the street I'd prefer the bike with the shortest stopping distance. I made up a list of the bikes that MCN teated that stopped from 60 mph in less than 110 feet. (Note that the fastest stopping cars run in the 120s, the 911 for example.)



Buell M2Cyclone

Monster 750

Monster S4

Vrod

Nighthawk 750 (shortest distance of all)

VTX1800

Vulcan Mean Streak

Marauder 800

Speed Triple

Speed 4

TL1000S



Only one "sportbike" on that list. And it's not the ZX6R. Looks like you bought an underperforming bike with a poor cost/performance ratio...



With the awful visibility of the sportbike and the poor handlebar leverage and it's no wonder that the kids on 600s are killing themselves off so quickly.

wanna bet they are already on the case? i doubt the japanese twins could ever be shrunk small enough tho, they made them MASSIVE bec. that's what cruiser guys like.



Cycle news says Mladin avg. speed at Road America 109 mph, avg speed Rossi at Mugello 105. It is a fast track in other words and the Buell's real advantage is handling. I think.
