Default Check out the gearing!

Talk about close ratios! With a 150 lb rider it goes to 75 mph in 1st in 3 seconds with 1 G of grip. I figure it takes 580 lb of thrust to get it there and about 10% more than that is available in 1st. It won't power wheely in 2cd with the rider tucked.

Speed in gears:

1 75

2 95

3 115

4 135

5 155

6 172 all at 15,000 rpm shift points.

I'm assuming a 150 lb rider. Sorry, big guy.

Looks like they did a damn good job. Suzuki's earnings this year is going to skyrocket on this bike alone... Finally somebody gets it!!

Default What is the freaking URL for that 2003 honda preview?

I assumed you could get to it off the main page but I did not find it. I know the secret password but I can't find the URL. Am I too early? I thought it was 9:30pm central.

According to the Honda website, they'll have their '03's (and a few '04 sneak peaks) on their site starting tomorrow. What a great year for new bikes so far!!!

Default NICKY HAYDEN TO GPS

Just to let you know, Nicky Hayden is now Valentino Rossi's new team mate. Don't believe me, you will find out.

No fookin' way. There is no way that Honda is running a factory team in the top flight class of racing with a non-Japanese rider. Torhu Ukawa will stay, they won't send him to the Fortune or Pons team.
