As I recall that's a titanium can on the GSXR, a couple of years ago factory teams would have been the only ones to come near something like that.



Now this guys yarding it out for what, a Yoshi?....Amazing.

Actually, I was choosing last month between the dl and a z750. I thought I was too short for the dl, but I have had second thoughts after watching my better half rubbing her knees after a hour or more of continuous riding on the back of the z. The dl has much lower rear pegs and more room for carrying stuff.



I know you probably really want me to fit into that stereotype, but it ain't happening. I ride what I like, I don't pick my riding partners based on what they ride, I don't try to buy an image, even though I think v-twins sound like suped up lawn mowers I like the way they make their power, I don't follow national politics much if at all, and I definately don't look like Micheal Douglas on Steroids...

Thanks for the "legend" bit. Just like the Darwin candidates. I am now about 30% scar tissue, and switched from fuel to gas dragsters to slow down. I retired for good in 1959, after I got married. My wife got mad at me when I quit. I did run 150 at Avenue 5 in Pomona on my gas dragster in '58, but am snail-like since. I got a draft notice for the Korean war 2 weeks after the accident, so at least I didn't get a free trip to Korea. No, I'm not Rollie Free (he wore tights), but I did know Mary ****erson (150mph at Bonneville on the fastest gas Vincent ever). I was riding Blackie Bernal's 650cc Triumph, prepared by Bud Hare, since the HD knucklehead I normally rode was apart waiting for billet cylinders. The cause was "headshake" due to a "slow weave" (fishtailing).

It was MARTY ****erson, not Mary. Sorry folks. The Triumph did make the cover of the Nov '52 Cycle mag with owner Blackie Bernal sitting on it. The bike was fixed by the next day - I took 16 months. Pictures of me at Bonneville were never published. Cycle mag gave the negatives to me, so I have the only prints. I guess I am a legend only in my own mind. Some real legends I admired were Chuck Basney, Jimmie Phillips, Feets Minert, Ed Kretz, Joe Leonard, Bud Ekins and a bunch more who were all better than me.

Click on the academics tab, grade level teams, sharks, Mr. Grigsby science. Go to biography, there is a picture of me hiking in Turkey Run state park. It's not the best picture, but its the only one of me on the net that I know of. I look more like a middle schooler than a middle school teacher so I have heard all of those jokes before.

I know, it's like "here, take this bike that wouldn't be competitive power wise 10 years ago and have fun, oh and by the way, it's the best dirt bike ever made".



My buddy rational for buying the Katoom was "It'll make me a better rider". He's already a good rider, what he needs now is something more powerfull. Like perhaps his old KX500?
