Default Stat chart

Maybe the stat chart could now include something like:



Now 142% beyond the average rider's ability.



732% beyond KPaul's.

Default kpaul's training status report (Eye of the tiger)

Laugh it up Fuzzball er BuzWeasel. Got the Ninja back yesterday. Looks brand new plan to install frame sliders. Battery is down put it on the charger think I need a new battery eventually. Ordering new Pinlock face shield so no more fogging. See you at Willow in July. If you guys want to race somewhere else let me know. Going to 4 10 hour days so I can have 3 days to train on variety of roads. I'll be doing 150 miles a week on twisty roads. Which is equal to 1500 miles of Chicago roads.. Watched Rocky III for motivation. Mr Ts character Clubber Lang was from Chicago like longride.. "Eye of the tiger, Eye of the Tiger...

Why have you taken to calling people weasels? Just curious. It's strange.

Default Re: Stat chart

As I've stated before, incremental changes are required to be competitive in the racing classes...



Let's see:

1998 Yamaha R1 - 150HP

2007 Yamaha R1 - 178HP (~18.5% increase--claimed numbers of course)



1999 Twin Cam 88 - 82 ft. lbs.

2007 Twin Cam 96 - 93 ft. lbs. (~13.5% increase--also claimed numbers)



You can get your improvements incrementally, or all at once. The tuning fork got their increase with no increase in displacement, and this doesn't even account for the suspension improvements--night and day.
