Kudos, Sean, from me and JR actually dropped his sippy cup watching the vid.



So the snap over 6 gets your attention, eh?.

The apex of 5 through the apex of 7 is the mose entertaining part of the track by far. It isn't scary like 8 and 2 are, it's just a really neat line and a fun place to play traction games. I dislike the big track and only have a total of about 40 laps there in my entire life, but those three corners are OK in my book. -Sean

Holy Sh!t Sean, that track video alone more than justifies the paltry $11.96 cover charge that some whine about. I will incur some extra cost though as now I'll be needing some Dramamine after viewing your track exploits. VWW

I don't know why graves doesn't offer one of these bikes for sale or simply offer a option to send them a bike and they'll build it. Build it and they will come. If they offer this up for 25k I would buy it. I just purchase a new duc for around 20k.

I can't even imagine the temptation to not go as fast as you possibly can and rate yourself on equal equipment against the pros.

I think MO has finally found the magic formula:



Give SA a REALLY fast bike, strap a video cam to it and let him do what he does best, while Fonzie does what he does best, and Gabe errr, holds an umbrella and cheers? Then write as little as humanly possible and head to Del Taco for the traditional 3 hour MO lunch.



Good sheet mang! More of the same fellers. I think you've hit your sweet spot!

The red leathers clash with the blue bike. Next time have Yamaha paint the bike to match. You lucky bastard.

6 seconds ... really? That is an amazing difference. Sounds like it was mostly tires, I wonder why Dunlop doesn't sell what the factor guys get? Privateers would buy them in droves.
