Default Your list is growing.

Funny but your list of things you are wrong and or totally ignorant keeps getting longer much faster than mine. Now you claim an engineering background but don't know why a LaPlace transform is valuable. All engineers should be able to answer that since they all are required to take electrical circuit analysis. That is of course if they go to a school which has the proper accreditation.

Here is a partial list of wrong stuff
[*]You said velocity not important in a crash, indicates a lack of basis physics education i.e energy varies with the square of the velocity
[*]You said cruisers have better brakes
[*]Iraq War
[*]WMD
[*]V-Twins in racing
[*]Budget deficits



The list is growing keep talking..

OK here is my quick summary..

V-Twins are on their way out in racing..They are inherently inferior to I-4s and V-4s. That said the Buell V-Twin is much more inferior to Ducati V-Twins. Just to muddy the water but back when Twins had a 250cc advantage to I-4s in World and AMA World superbike. Honda built a V-Twin, RC-51, which was superior to Ducatis. Colin Edwards on the RC beat Bayliss on a Ducati. In addition the Honda engines lasted a lot longer..

You can take that info to the bank between all that track time and competitive racing you have under your belt. Plus all that time you have wrenching and rebuilding bikes over the years really puts you in positions to comment on so many aspects of the integrity and real world competitiveness of the racing community and engine design.



I value this info and hope some day a book will be available for me to purchase that will allow me to reference all of the golden nuggets of information that has streamed from your fingers in such a thought provoking manner.



Truely, this is the Stephen Hawking of the motorcycle world.

I'm sorry that facts, as well as they can be presented, elude you. Buell uses a 50 year old motor design and is TRYING to compete in racing with it. CAN HE WIN?! NO. CAN HE PLACE. By God's grace- but God probably has more things to attend to. SO, Buell (if he wants to WIN) must change his motor design.

As for me and my job working at a Ducati Shop, doesn't matter. Facts are plainly stated below as to why Ducati is petitioning for a 20% increase. They are valid. Ducati cannot compete with the F6 motor because the design is too expensive to keep alive. If they are allowed the displacement increase they can change the way they set-up the monitary struture of the race teams because they WILL NOT have to spend so much money trying to make the motor (F6) compete. The 1200 petition will allow TWIN teams to spend less money because they will concede all the "special" rules that are designed just for them. That's as simple as I can get it. If you are still lost please seek help from sources that may provide medication for your problem.

What's up with the crash, repair, ride, repair thing? Did you have another crash?
