So, when Eslick puts the Buell on the box again will there still be whining? Probably. Just remeber this, the 600s you see are virually 600cc Superbikes. The Aprilias and Buells are stock motors with fuel-injection and exhaust upgrades. Also, the 600s in almost every instance are turning better lap times.

You could possibly afford an identical bike to Eslick's. You could never ever afford or even for any amount of money get the factory to provide you with the same bike Hacking rides. Those bikes are true factory one offs. The factories purposefully limit the upgrades they will sell to ensure that their professional riders always have a big leg-up over the privateers. The numbers or people who insist on siding with the factories.. the nemesis of the proverbial "little guy"... are simply amazing.
