Default Re: World Superbike: Ducati's Laconi On Pole

Before we trash Speed Channel, remember they are in business to make money. Ratings for motorcycle racing are abysmally low. One could argue that if it wasn't for all the money they make off Nascar, we wouldn't have any motorcycle racing on TV at all, tape delay or otherwise.



I outta be able to sell the Duc to Kook for a princely sum. 30 minutes with him his kids will be going to junior college and he'll have a nice, shiny 5 year old Ducati to admire!

How about Kdike? Wants to be a man, but lacks some of the necessary requirements. VWW

Aw c'mon. Wake up. Get yourself a GSXR and forget about those "V2s".

I just buy the season preview on DVD to get my fix, although it's a bit expensive. The Duke USA videos are about $35 a piece USD. I find them used from time to time too. I'm pretty sick of all of Speeds idiotic NASCAR coverage, I really can't see what the big deal is. It's the most boring thing I've ever seen, also FWIW they do between 180-190 on the superspeedways, that's very slow. I heard somewhere that an F1 car would do 250 mph.

Since January we've had more rain than Seattle. LA has had more than 30 inches of rain this season.



Near my house, Lake Hodges was at 15% capacity in December. It's spilling over the top of the dam now.



My son lives with me 100% now so it looks like I'm a Harley rider for the next few years. The sportbikes are collecting dust.

I'm looking forward to the AMA Superbike and Superstock series again this year. I expect once again, we'll see some strong privateer efforts in both classes using the awesome RC51. Once again they'll use their righteous and superior power delivery to beat up on the barbarian hordes of inline fours.

The new KSpike hasn't gone totally mental yet so I'll humor him for a while.

Not an F1 car. They don't do superspeedways at all. I was at California Speedway when the CART qualifying record was set at 240 mph!



Keep in mind the NASCAR boys are doing that same track with almost no downforce and relatively skinny tires for a 3500 lb car.

Inline4 shminline4... Vtwin shmeetwin.



I'm just happy to see the two biggest spending companies out of first and second posotions. Guess Honda and Yamaha couldn't buy the pole position this time.



And seeing Honda way down at 8th plase is especially edifiying. Maybe Honda could bully another rule change for itself before the race?
