Default actually ....

ummm .... actually, yeah, i raced against some factory riders, but back then "factory rider" meant something different. guys like gary bailey and make hartwig were factory guys, but they weren't big time like they are today. bailey actually DID lap me, but only once



i might have to respectfully disagree with you regarding the equal equipment part. stock parts are pretty darned good these days.



i still think if you're being lapped more than three times, you prolly shouldn't be on the track. just my opinion.

Default Re: actually ....

Thanks for the respect Valk, but I guarantee you that no matter how good stock parts are, they do not make up the difference between a 180 H.P. Works Ohlins Suspended, Minimum Weight, Professionally Tuned, Factory Superbike and a Ride your stinkin butt off, 140 H.P. Privateer GSX-R 750 (superstock legal, except for the slicks) "superbike". Those guys are not squids, by any stretch of the imagination (Unless you catch them on Main St. in flip flops, shorts, tank top, etc.)

Default Re: Road America Saturday results

Agreed. I used to have MO set as my homepage so I would go straight there and read the latest news. Now I use Cycle News for all the up-to-date reports. Here in New Zealand its 12.15pm Tuesday already and if I'd only read MO I wouldn't know anything about WSB results, world MX or anything since posting of the practice times for WSB. Is that what I get for paying in NZ$?

Cheers

Merv.

Agree this is getting old. A free site like motorcycledaily.com gets updates faster and has more bike articles and more indepth bike reviews.

I agree. Update the *&%$# site so I can find out who won the second AMA superbike race!

Default Damn this!

F U C K Yeah! Damn, and to believe the one real reason I paid up was to read the R1 review and thinking all content after that would be as good and up to date. These guys are out using our cash for crash replacement parts, gas money, and trips to thailand to buy pirated software. I have done cyclenews.com and amasuperbike.com all weekend and that's where I seem to get my info.

This is getting sad. It's Tuesday morning about 10:00a EDT and MO still hasn't posted the results of Sundays race. If this was the only thing that MO has been slow about I wouldn't waste my time writing this letter, but it's not. What ever happened to the apology that JB assured us was coming for accusing the wrong person in his rant about advertising and politics. What happened to the shot out between the top 2 inline 4's and the top 2 twins. It was implied that we would be seeing that article at the end of last week. If any one on the staff at MO would care to comment I will listen with an open mind, but I don't expect to get a responce. It appears that some of the staff think that we reads are unimportant. If I am wrong about this then I will aplogize. I hope that I'm wrong, but I don't think that I am.

Default MO getting sloppy

Yes this is getting quite ridiculous. The news is now over 2 days old with no updates to race results that other sites have had for a while now. "promised" tests as you mentioned not appearing (heck, I'm still waiting on their hotted-up Kymco scooter test that they promised, what 7 months ago?). I'm not going to complain about paying for the site because seriously, $11 is not gonna change your life, but it is getting rather lame when free sites are more current.

Hey now watch what you say in here, you might get your subscription cancled.......The freedom of speach even in a flame forum like this obviously has no meaning to a jurnalist...
