Default Re: H1

All this and the legendary flexframe. It certainly seemed much more. Especially after a hill crest facing a sudden tight lefthander on a choppy pavement (ok so that went straight). But, having not found a H-2 dyno chart in the net (help, anyone???) and having checked the MO 2006 Middleweight Supersport comparo´s dyno charts, I would think that, say, at 6-8 kRPM the H-2 would wax these butts

Obviously the definition of a wheelie is the key here. Is any amount of the front wheel coming off the ground under alll conditions considered a wheelie, and thus reckless driving. There is a big difference between your fron wheel coming 4 inches off the ground and riding a quarter mile with the front wheel nearly vertical to the rear wheel while flipping off the law for style points.

Hell, I was a firefighter/medic for 17 years as well as a rider for 38 years, and haven't seen several of any specific bike wrecked, and I bet I saw hundreds more wrecks than our resident village idiot has. Liar? He certainly is. Not hard to figure that one out.

I've probably seen 5 street wrecks in 30 years of street riding and I was in 3 of them, 1 was my buddy screwing around doing burnouts on a wet wooden bridge and the last one was a guy on an R1 who cannonballed his way through the blackberries when he missed a corner.



The remarkable thing about our boy is he has had 1 bike, hardly ever rides it, yet has tons of annecdotal evidence of which bike is best, which style is best...etc. He's a true engineer, all books or in this case internet and no experiance.

Default KPaul vs. XXXXX at YYYYYY Track...

MO should pony-up and pay for KPaul's ticket to the track of his choosing.



KPaul tells MO which bike he wants and MO provides it at the track of KPaul's choice. Other riders in attendance are: Longweasel, Bozoglide, Racer Boy, Ashley, and one other reader or staff member of KPaul's choosing.



KPaul's total cost and total liability = $0.00 all he has to do is pick the track and bike, MO does the rest.



I propose a new poll.... "Should KPaul follow-through on his oft-repeated threat to meet various MOrons at the track?"

Get Buzz and Longride to Vegas for the school.

OTOH, you may have put more time into that post than KP has thought about showing up.

I've ridden with Buzz and Longride. They are great guys and they are very good motorcyclists. I'm thinking they will do just fine on the track, without a school.

Gotcha.... But I'm pretty sure Freddie stopped holding his breath over a year ago.
