Crank's 2 lbs lighter? Does the bike idle at all?



Maybe soon they'll have counter rotating crankshafts to eliminate all that pesky flywheel effect.

Remora [Remora remora] (Linnaeus) 1758



Description—



The chief distinctions between the remora and the swordfish sucker is that it has a larger number of ridges in its sucking plate on the average (16 to 20, as against 14 to 17), and that there are only 22 to 25 rays in its dorsal fin, whereas the swordfish sucker has 29 to 32. Like the latter, it is a stouter fish than the shark sucker (p. 485), and its ventral fins are similarly attached to the skin of the abdomen along their inner edges.



Color—

Uniform brownish, blackish, or sooty, both above and below.



Size—

Maximum length about 18 inches.



Habits—

Very little is known of the life history of the remoras. The young fry of this, and of other species of Remora have been taken in the open Atlantic, usually in June or July which suggests a sharply limited spawning period. A remora may join a shark, or other host, when only about 1½ inches (3 to 4 cm.) long.[26] But we have yet to learn how long or how constantly one may accompany a single shark, or how often it may transfer from one host to another.



General range—

Tropical seas generally; very common in the West Indies, occasionally north to New York and to Woods Hole, and only a stray north of Cape Cod. It is usually attached to large sharks or to sea turtles.

Don't have those problems up in the mid 40's Lat. Of course you probable don't slip with the bike on the ramp finally bringing it in out of the snow this morning. We do have good sailing though.

Excellent write up Gabe, thanks. Yes it is too bad those racing tires aren't legal and get only 300 miles. In Seattle they would be great. I like Alabama, having been to Huntsville I can testify to what Gabe said i.e . it's under estimated sophistication. Huntsville has lot of Phds in science and engineering running around for obvious reasons i.e. the Marshall Space Flight Center and Redstone Arsenal are located there. I had a offer to move there but my wife, being a Seattle native, would have none of it. I would prefer Alabama over Chicago any day.



It will be interesting to see if the lack of slipper clutch will be seen as big negative in this class.

I agree about the humidity. When I lived in Fla I got used to it though. I actually found that when it was easier to get warmed up for exercise i.e. less muscle pulls.

Slippers are for Cinderella, Foo!



Proper clutch control and rev-matching. If you're man enough for the bike, you don't need no steenkeen [i]slipper-clutch!

They last longer than 300 miles at street riding speeds. I know of folks that use them in Seattle on streetbikes. Illegal, but they work very well on wet roads.

Default You don't have to tell me they work!

Although they don't grip any better on sand or gravel than street tires. Another thing, when they start going off and losing grip, they don't give you much warning,a nd you are leaned over...don't ask me how I know this...



I can't see how rubber that soft could last longer than 1000 miles, although I did get a LOT of trackdays out of a set of RS125 rains I had mounted on my Derbi Supermoto...that was a lot of fun!
