Re: Bostrom and Ducati are Faster than Haga and his Yamaha
 
First post beeatches! Bostrom rules! GP's will be great this year. It would be way more fun to ride a GP bike. More power and minus 60 pounds! It's hard to imagine Yamaha not taking the title.



Haga's time makes me wonder if he's on the juice again??????

Uhhh...the whole point is that Bostrom is turning faster lap times than the best GP riders...



...on a Superbike!

Re: Bostrom and Ducati are Faster than Haga and his Yamaha
 
Yeah, "the juice." Steroids and more body weight would be great for a rider! Too bad Haga's time isn't that great. You'll note it's not even faster that the top Superbike times. Personally, I'm impressed by the Proton KR3 bike being so close to the top of the list. Sure, it's 9th but it's only a .625 off of Rossi, and he proved last year he was the fastest rider out there(taking the partial season into account). It's nice to see King Kenny's team at least semi-competitive, even if it is early.

Look at those times! Close times mean one thing: competition and better bikes. I'm just waiting for the (insert 600cc sportbike here) guys to start saying that this brand sucks or that brand rules. I love it!



When you're talking about hundredths of a second, we all benefit! Except the ones who crash and burn, that is....

Here goes Bostrom again. 1 fast lap and he becomes god.

As the season unfolds he will be fast on occaisions and most times 7-12th.

Another Mike Hale.

People like you are too negative
 
Sure buddy, right. Bostrom isn't as gung ho as bayliss to fly into a corner before he knows it well. As hard of a track as Brands Hatch is, it took Bostrom two races to run the same times as the leaders, but by then it was too late. THis season, he may not do as good as Bayliss, but I bet he does well.... Atleast top five. I am going for 3rd at the end of the season.

who the hell is Jurgen Vd Goorbergh?
 
Who in the hell is Jurgen Vd Goorbergh? And what is he riding? A Proton? Never heard of either. Any info, anyone?

To find more, try www.vdgoorbergh.com

or take a look at www.robertsgroup.com

Brief summary, he is a dutch rider, who rode for MuZ in 1999 (often faster than Cadalora), rode a twin Honda in 2000 (being the best twin rider) and for 2001 rides the 3 cilinder Proton (former Modenas) KR3 of Kenny Robert Sr.

Proton is a Malaysian car brand, and main sponsor of the team by the way.

first off, head to head a grand prix bike would make mincemeat out of a superbike.

a superbike maybe could run with a 250 grand prix, whose times are just a second or 2 slower than the 500's, just like superbike times.

dude, if you think a superbike could come close to a grand prix bike, you're setting yourself up to be made a fool of. i wouldn't read too much into bostrom's times. there are certain tracks where all the performance of a 500 cannot be used. lesser bikes that run WFO(superbikes) can then be close or equal.
