Default Re: 2003 600 Shootout: Is 636cc Cheating?

Thanks for your post. I've not bought a Honda in a number of years, but your post convinces me that I'll avoid their products in the future as long as they continue this unwarranted arrogance.



Last Honda I bought blew-up anyhow.

Don't forget to put out the "No Foreigners Allowed" sign on the front door too.

First thing. Congrats to Sean, you go boy, Full factory supported ride in and actual AMA race. When you go pro and start making all that money and have women getting moist just talking to a real motocycle racer, don't forget all the small people who where here at the begining.



Second; great review, but.. No street rides, I know its kool that you got the Duc for a long term, but some street impressions would be nice, I think it would have up'd the Triumphs finish. I know the flames will come (these are race bikes ) but most sold will see no to limited track days. my 0.02$.

Well I haven't weighed 135 since high school and I'm 20 years removed from that. I was a skeleton then too.

You forgot to mention the 600 Silverwing scooter with the collapsing rear wheel (that would be a wild ride!).

Newsflash- the 636 was a DIFFERENT BIKE last year, and it got its ass handed to it by last years' 600s.

While I disagree that what wins on Sunday always sells on Monday, I also disagree with your assumption that the 600 class will move upwards to 750. Unless insurance companies suddenly change their displacement guidelines, the displacement limit for this class will forever remain at 650cc.

How about being allowed to race a bike in a production class that's not available for the public to buy? How is THAT not cheating?
