Default Re: Could you be more specific?

Once again Dyp***** doesn't discuss anything related to actually riding a motorcycle. He can sure talk about other people riding a motorcycle though.



I spent the day riding the Brutale at Willow Springs while he was trying to convince everyone he has an engineering degree.

Default Re: R1 vs 911

After watching the video it appeared to me:



1. The guy on the bike- considering his professional ability- looked like he was out on a Sunday ride and was clearly not pushing the R1 to its capabilities.



2. The car looked like it was being pushed to its limits.



3. I don't know the context of this test but it looked and sounded as if it was staged (i.e. not a real test nor a real race between two drivers putting it all out to win) and purposely so to sell cars- Porches by chance?



4. The narrator is a prick.



I believe that production sport bikes are faster in nearly every aspect than any production car (okay, I don't know every crazy expensive production car out there but lets just say any car where more than 200 are produced and sold to the public). However, it takes a more skilled rider to extract that speed out of a bike than out of a car. The learning curve for a bike is much steeper than for a car. And, unless the riders are equally skilled for their respective machine and can squeeze the max performance out of the machine, it's not an accurate test. Clearly the R1 pilot was not pushing his or the bikes limits.



Conclusion, bs test IMO. However, Wambo, very interesting and fun subject. It made for some good posts (even though some of the usual suspects couldn't manage to harness their flammable ways).

Default Re: Lap Times at Daytona

Having driven an M3 and ridden a Ducati ST4s over the same roads, I have to agree; I am much faster on a motorcycle.
