Cool Nice shot!

Just thought Id share this shot looking back from Rossis bike in the French Grand Prix this past weekend. Lorenzo is finally showing some maturity and is not only there to fight but to win.


Oh and what is this,...backfiring coming from a Factory machine that can't be right?

It's something that, when it happens on your streetbike, you F-bombed-up the fuel-mapping, 'cuz you a "Tuna" Yo!


But that's "normal".

Dude seriously get in the know and step out of the car,... it's something that happens on every properly tuned sportbike today when tuned right. On decel only!

And actually a motors a motor it happens in your car as well.

Course you'll probably argue this with Jeremy Burgess on why Vales bike backfires going into a corner once he barely let's off the throttle then drives out of the corner.

I guess that depends on your definition of "properly tuned".

Which is not a legal tune for the "Street". You should step off the racebike for a minute, and notice that about 98.75% of all Motorcycles ever made will never make it to this thing you call "The Track". Nor will 96% of the riders of those bikes that DO make it to "The Track" ever be able to utilize any "tuning" to make their bike spit and pop and flame out the exhaust on over-run.

Moke, lose the attitude that I "don't know WTF I'm talking about" - it's like Ken goin' off on Lush Rimjob and how every Right-leaner hangs on his every word. You know as much about it as I do; and you know what I wrote is true. I've always maintained that what's good for use at "The Track" is not necessarily good for Reality.
