My only question is- When will Terry sell his drag bike motors to the public?

Do these guys race against Japanese inline 4s? If so is there a displacement advantage for the V-Twins?

No, there's a cylinder advantage for I4s.

Of course, there's a displacement advantage. We're talking about Haaarwllaayy-Davidson, they couldn't race their way out of a wet paper sack without all the rules put in their favor.



I think it's 2600cc for the Hardley-Ablesons and something like 1400cc for everyone else..



Like I said we're not talking a small difference, FWIW Ducati does just fine with no advantage at all..

Oh sheesh, I just started WWIII with that.



Oh well all the better, always fun to see how the dyed in the wool defend themselves.

My mind must be all ****ed up. I thought the rules were for v-twins and not just Harley. Thanks for setting us straight on that one. I'm sure if the Japanese could race under those rules they would whip out a v-twin and kick Vance & Hines (along with Muzzy, who is racing a Buell) asses. Since the rules are for Harleys only, that isn't possible ,is it? I'm sure glad guys like you have all their facts straight before talking out their ass.
