You say that like it was a difficult thing to do. The new Duc superbikes look ok, but they don't have the rolling art drool-icious look of the previous generation.

OK, I really know the answer but it begs to be asked:



<blockquote>Did you pass a guy on a goldwing, or

Were you riding a gold wing while passing a guy?</blockquote>

Default Useful numbers

My MC spreadsheet predicts maximum wheelie speed on the basis of weight/power ratio. Given your weight of 220 lb, a 400 lb dry weight and a 66 lb allowance for fuel, oil, water, brake fluid, etc. it predicts 1 G acceleration up to 83 mph for 686/152, or 4.5 lb/hp. Given a 130 lb rider it the speed goes to 97 mph at 3.9 lb/hp.



When you plan to include rear wheel dyno results with road test numbers it would be real nice to include the actual test weight with the rider aboard. Dry weight of the bike alone isn't particularly useful.

Default Little help, please?

Mr. Allcaps has soiled his pan of brain gravy. Can someone get him a fresh bowl, please?

I'm guessing the latest GSXR750 will kick the CBR1000. Honda sucks!
