Good work and hang in there. Good writeup and sounds like you even snuck some fun in all that hard work.

HA!.. you calling Sean "portly?"



Hmmm.. on second thought... perhaps something to this!?...



Lessee.. some quick math (which usually means 'bad math', but I digress...):

Bike... wet wt: 415lbs (err, near as I recall reading

somewhere??)

Sean...'wet' (eww!) wt: 190lbs (trying to be nice, Sean-O)

Bike-HP: 120 (from the article)



That's 415 + 190 = 605lbs (OOF!)



605lbs/120hp = 5.04 lbs/hp.



Whew!, you're safe there Sean... 5lbs is worth only

1hp... so you can stuff down that Ultimate Cheeseburger and

just spring for the fuminous fuel.



Then again, an ultimate-cheese weighs about a bazillion pounds, or one metric butt-load, once it's in the depths of your pizza-prison, errr. Yeah.



Anyhoo.



Congrats on the whole deal though, hope it brings many more chances!

Hey Sean,



Great article and congrats on the nice finish. I'm sure an Ohlins shock would've helped... maybe a top 25 finish? Next up is Sears Point. If you're coming up to the Bay Area, I'm rootin' for ya!

Getting lost in the 909 is dangerous indeed. They all could have ended up as indentured servants in a meth lab.
