I would pay to see Ed McMahon doing power wheelies in the front. Especially since the front is zeroscaped with rocks and boulders from the desert.

Let that be a warning to people who own badgers. When going out take a large wooden badger instead.

Desert landscaping really hurts when you're drunk...

Wouldnt it be sweet if they did? They could have their own class called STbike or something. FZ1s and Bandits and Honda 919 and z1000 and even a naked Buell just for good measure. I bet it would be a blast to watch.



Oh, and the riders have to be 40+ (and a little overweight) b/c we all know that no one younger than that would be smart enough to ride such practical beasties in the real world.

I think we just invented a new AMA competition.



We could race touring bikes too. Harley Ultra Classics and Goldwings and Rocket IIIs and that new Victory Vision thing.



Maybe we could even sell FIM on it.



I would pay serious money to watch either one of these races.



Rossi: 'I go very fast on very fast bike.'



Harley Ultra Rider: 'Son, I only go half as fast on the same course but I do it on that sled over there. [Points to Orange and Black racing Ultra parked behind him]



Rossi: 'I...er...I am...' [wanders off muttering to himself in Italian]

Great, I have to age 10 year and add 40lbs to buy my next bike. DAMNIT!

I like the touring bikes idea. Sparks everywhere, metal chunks flying around, plastic burning!



And a high speed (kind of) wreck with an 800 pound bike would be a hell of a site on the track.

We've kicked this idea around before and I still think it's a spectacluar idea. Who wouldn't want to watch it as a support class? You could keep the races short by making them just 10 laps.

Default I don't get cruisers...

I don't see what this thing and similar things offers over the substantially cheaper technowidity Concours 14, apart from saying "I got a small penis" to the rest of the world.
