Default Re: MotoGP is great

Let's see, it was seven GPs ago (counting into last season) that Max Biaggi won a GP on an inline four Yamaha.

The only fun thing to ride on those twisty roads near Sturgis is a dirtbike so you can more easily dodge all the drunks riding back from Deadwood...

They gotta get that damn Aprilia sorted for Colin as its making him look stupid compared to Bayliss.



As for looking stupid what about our boy Scott Dixon hitting the wall during the Indy snorefest when he was weaving to keep the tires warm under yellow? That was some way to screw up his rookie drive there when running about 6th.

"Ducati was doing well until Baylis(sic) slipped."



That's right up there with "I missed a gear" and "If I only would have...." How was Honda doing when they waved the checkered? Ducati isn't an inline four either.



"The season is still young."



Wanna bet on the outcome then?



"Your Harley made it all the back from SD?"



3500 miles and never missed a beat. It's got 23 grand plus a few and still looks and runs like new. Hard to swallow, is it not?



"But those twisty roads near Sturgis would be so much more fun on your Ninja."



How so? Riding a dresser two up quickly takes as much or more skill as it would on the Ninja. Not going as fast, but cranking on the dresser is just as much fun. Since riding skill is in short supply these days, most people buy faster bikes to stroke their ego. Besides, I don't really own a Ninja, remember?



"Good thing I met the nicest people on inline 4s "



Too bad the ones that met you can't say that!

Never said I was pro inline 4. I am only anti-VTwin.

Since YOU ride on the street and at less than 140 MPH I don't see why.
