If this were a no holds barred event, I'd take the CR80.

It would be one thing if it was actually your material that they weren't giving you credit for; this is nothing but a link. Big deal. Hell, they might have found it before you how can you be sure?

Default Re: My Capt K-Y comment is how I know.

Kpaul, my friend, the staffer who posted this wasn't the same "statistical genius". It was me.



I left out the "Captain K-Y" comment because I would like to see a kinder, gentler, MO community forum. Just like I would never post something that was derogatory written about you, such as "Kpaul the dipstick," or "Kpaul the Kook." What other staffers may do and post is up to their discretion, and fortunately when I find something I'd like to post, I am afforded the right to use my own discretion to clean things up should I choose.



Furthermore, I would be more motivated to leave in such petulant, grade-school, name-calling, if the post wasn't "anonymous." If a person is being called out, he should know by whom. You don't need to post anonymously in the hope that just because it's Kpaul posting it won't get put up.



We do look at Sportrider, and I myself am quite a fan of their site and publication. We keep abreast of every site we can, not just because they are our competition, but because we are motorcycle enthusiasts.



I don't want to get in a pissing match with you, because unlike the majority of this forum, I like you and consider you a friend. But please, Kpaul, chill out a bit. We are all motorcyclists and we are in the minority. Find cause for solidarity, not for division.

Not to open this can of worms again, but I never contested that cruisers would beat sportbikes 0-60, only in 60-0 and roll-ons from town speeds.
