You must be better looking than George Clooney because my guess is the little woman isn't marrying you for the scintillating conversation.

You're right Buz, but it probably has more to do with his long travel suspension. VWW

Don't give this jerk a second thought Sean. Having had an "off road" experience on a CB 1100F back in the old days, I know how much it can shake someone's confidence. For you to get back in the saddle the next day after a brief beer session, and a long freeway ride on a modern torture rack with all of your bruises and a broken hand, and then rip off the lap times that you did is most impressive. Pated obviously hasn't a clue as to what true professionalism is all about. Perhaps he isn't aware that sometimes humor is the way that men deal with near tragedy. VWW

Default Editing....

'taunt' was used where 'taut' should have been...

Also, the specs at the end list the Daytona as having an 'all new 998cc inline four cylinder engine'....gads!



I caught these after 3 glasses of Port, c'mon guys!

Default Holy Crap!

Great Article boys. Absolutely a stunning read. Incredible. Dare I even say... worth the wait!



JohnnyB is gonna fume with rage over a Honda victory.



Funny though. the guys at Kawi must be pissed. The ZX-9 would have won all of it's comparo's if you had used the same standard as this one. So kawi finally makes a bike that will kill in your comparos, and you change the rules. Cracks me up.

Somebody moderated this post down to "Dipstick", but JALacroix has a point. I should have caught those mistakes (we're correcting them now thanks to him)



In the future, if a post is factually correct and not presented in an inflamatory manner, please leave it as posted, or moderate it UP to informative or something like that.

Default USC? Nah...

...I actually attended George Washington University in Washington D.C. but I have a whole buncha college jerseys from all over.



As for Sean's Mom, the rumors are false, although I have met her on several occasions and can say that I like her enough to have sincerely dreaded having to call and tell her that her only two sons were permanently fused with a Duc and a Gixxer to form the first 2 headed, 4 wheeled, 8 limbed, 6 cylinder, 1,999 cc cyborg in scientific history. Which would have been a best case scenario if Sean would have impacted the Suzi about two feet of distance to the right of where he actually did. Phew!

Fantastic! I've been waiting for a shoot out like this for years! Goes to show you that specs aren't everything. Good to see the RC51 get the respect it is deserves (yes I own one).
