Or start using heavyweight V-twin cruisers. Imagine Rossi on a Yamaha Roadliner with "GO!!!!!!!!!!" painted across that big, valenced fender.

All is fair in love and war but some things are a little cheap.

haha pole times aren't the best to look at though, they did those on qualifier tires which only last 1 or 2 good laps. I doubt they were testing the 800's with qualifiers on!

The one where you can actually watch the cylinders swell and contract as the piston moves up-and-down in the bore? (with like a 30rpm idle and an 1875rpm redline......)



It wouldn't be like those wimpy open-piped Harleys with their "potato-potato-potato" - it'd be more like FOUR-ASTERISKIN'-POTATOE-FOUR-ASTERISKIN'-POTATOE-MOTHER-FOUR-ASTERISKIN'-POTATOE!!!!!!!!!!!!



(yes, they would have to add an "E", just to get the "full effect".........)



Heheheh........
