Default the beggining of the end

very interesting. i wonder if electric bikes will do to 4-strokes, what 4-strokes did to 2-strokes. a careful manipulation of the rules to favour the electrics ought to do it don't you think

They didn't say what cc's the bikes will be.

It will never work. Chicks don't dig electric motors unless they fit in their purses.

They'll have to play the sound of motors over the loudspeakers.

It's all Liberal politics and a power-grab by tree-huggers.

What's the pit crew going to do, reel in the extension cord when the race is over?

Michael Jackson would have stopped this if he was still around.

I'll be the pit guy with the extention cord. Pit stop usually takes 2hours if our guys are on their game.

LOL!! way too funny.
you won't want one until you get passed by one.
don't worry about the pit guy. you can still hold the pit board, or spare bike with appropriate tires (wet or dry tires).
it might be a good time to get a job with general electric. (test monkey)

its not how good you do it. its how good you look doing it
