On a motorcycle site, no less.



It always comes down to a choice between Ginger and Mary Ann.

higher r's, lighter weight, same or better breathing and hp, you've got a winning combo.

That is the main thing that has turned me off to auto racing over the years. Someone comes up with a better idea within the rules and the others simply get it banned. So much for the idea that racing improves the breed.



Like the turbine car. I've never watched the Indy series since the Offy mafia banned it.

Rossi ran a 990 and an 800 if you look at the results. He was faster on the 800.

Not according to "Soup" coverage of the same day. Their coverage seemed more extensive... All for fun.



Remember this was coverage for Wednesdays testing session.

This article is completely wrong. Rossi posted the fasted time on his 990. Here is a link to the article with the same numbers, only the 990 is where the 800 was.

I feel like someone just pulled a fast one on us all.
