"change the rules to have 4s (inline and V-4s) go down to 800cc and let Ducati race the 1000 or bigger bikes cause it won't matter. 4 cylinders rule"



Considering that three of the top seven bikes in the WSB standings are 1000cc Twins, reducing the 1000cc Fours to 800cc would get them well and truly spanked. But I've bashed your titanium-reinforced skull with variations of that particular clue-by-four about 35 times in the past two years, so why am I bothering?

Anyone else remember The Highwayman?



Why can't we bring him back? I wrote my best stuff lambasting that persona way back in the early 2000s. Alas! for a worthy oponent.

Default and NOW...The Highwayman.

He was the cruiser equivalent of a squid, and was too over the top. Pure camp. At least he was grammatically correct most of the time. God what a tood shed though. I'm amazed anyone believed he was real.

KP- You will see FIM cave to the 1200 but all the hi-tech goodies that are allowed will be disallowed. Litre Superbikes will be around for at least 5 more years- minimum! I used to be on the "750-800" cc bandwaggon but no longer. Honda made it pretty clear in a written statement a few weeks ago that they will not develop a 750-800 cc sportbike for street use. If Honda says NO then there is no reason for anyone else to develop one. Honda wants GP style bikes to remain 'experimental" as is the nature the the GP class. Just like F1, GP is about what if's. If they allow for a "new" displacement category in street bikes then the GP bikes will have to change cc size again- and no manufaturer wants to be burdened with development of a new motor any time soon.
