Default We ought to make an example of...hmm...well, somebody...Damn It!

I agree 100%! The bastards should to be flogged! Unless, of course, they happen to read this board, and see things we (myself SO included) say about some stuff. In that case, I probably would blame them (the bastards) too much.

Default Re: 2005 Yamaha R6 Track Test

With the 2003 R6, is it difficult to fix the funky front end? Sounds like putting a 70 series tire on the front along with some simple suspension adjustments would do it? I ask because I'm looking for a track bike and have found some nice 2003 r6's. Thoughts?

Default My money is on the ZX-6.

Then again... it doesn't matter... no way i'd own a Yamaha... I know I know... there pretty. whatever.



I'm starting to think the motorcycle market is as brand loyal as the pickup truck market.

Yes, the 2003 R6's front-end feeling issue can be easily "fixed" with a swap to a race-profile 70 series front tire and by adjusting the suspension accordingly. -Sean

Dude are you trying to get us killed ? I cannot believe that you would offer up your team hillbilly teammates for the simple need for vicarious pleasure. Clearly you will have to be dealt with.



For the record Sean can stomp me at the racetrack in every contest except for the footrace to the snackbar. I think I can take him there.

Oh yeah? Ok, Hillbilly Boy, you're ON! Racer Boy is going to kick your tobacci chewin ass all the way back to Idaho. Footrace, please you need two competitors for a "race". This will be more of a demonstration than a race. Bring It Bumpkin! -Sean
