"Look for a Buell on the FX podium, haters."



I love the Buells, but... BWAHAHA!!! Seriously?



"The race, I believe, is schedjed on the Speed channel directly following the GP race in which Rossi will kick all their assets again."



Haven't you heard? Rossi is a washed-up has-been. No chance at all to win the championship. Stick a fork in 'im, he's done.



Y'know, just like Nicky was out of his league in MotoGP a couple years ago...

Nick might win a championship after Rossi retires. Other than that I think not. It'll be fun to see how he handles the pressure. He is 26 points up and hanging by fingernails with what? 7 races to go... Has he even had a DNF this year? need some Gibernau luck to set things even.



at least it is best GP season in as long as i can remember.

$100 a pack and you're not allowed to smoke 'em after you buy 'em.



In FL they hand you a pack at birth.

The XBRR will not finish on the podium and Colin Ebwards will win the GP. I have spoken and so it will be.

Default Re: What, the fairing should look more 'stealthy'?

In his column for MCN, Glyn Kerr has commented a couple of times on the advent of Stealth aircraft and their influence on styling and fairing designs. He noted that most manufacturers were adding sharp edges and creases.



Having seen a few of the shapes that seem to offer the lowest drag coefficients, I have to admit that I prefer pseudo-stealth to actually 'clean', and the XBRR is just one more example of why!

Default Oh, stop it.

You remember Mad Mick very well, I'm sure!



Of course, maybe I'm just making your point. I remember the commentator's take in those days: "...Doohan's lead had increased to 15 seconds, but his times have slowed by half a second per lap with fewer than ten laps remaining..."

Throw in 2nd for Nicky, 3rd for Hopkins, a top five placement for Rossi, and a finished race for McWilliams, and I'd call it good. Hell, I'd open the Glenmorangie!

Stealth aircraft are shapped for reduction of radar signature not aerodynamic efficiency or stability (it takes several computers to create the illusion of stable flight i.e. the pilot's actions are filtered by flight control software(FCS) so that it appears stable to him meanwhile thousands of actual corrections are made by the FCS to the control surfaces).
