Default Re: So doesn't this make the Ducati 1098 outdated???

I think they were also going for a countdown-to-blastoff thing - "TEN...NINE...EIGHT..."

If Ducati puts "74 Cubic Inch Big Twin" on the side I'm buyin' one.

just goes to show how much bsb has become the feeder school into wsb ..excepting motogp guys moving backwards into it..



bsb has always been a very competitive championship with a lot of teams getting full factory support, obviously wsb seems to feel what happens there is worth paying a lot of attention to



once they keep it within some kind of equality, which is probably hard to do but i dont want to see any 1600cc thumpers out there or 8 cylinder mobile chicanes stinking up the track!

Well obviously the WSB is getting some under the table compensation from Ducati. WSB was the Ducati cup until inline 4s got a fair shake. While you guys were here whining about things I was out on nice long ride (no pun intended) Met up with a rider on a new ZX-6R definitely a good rider blew past me I could of kept up but my radar detector was going off sure enough state trooper. When I got gas at Morton the rider pulled up. Off came the helmet and it was a women in her late 20s early 30s I suspect, blonde, lean and very attractive.. Talk about a turn on. Tight fitting leathers. Think I need another wife i.e a riding wife.. like the TV character Doug on King of Queens. I need a flying wife too..

[i][b]

kpaul sez bigger isn't better WSB go to 800 cc for fours and 1000's on Triples and twins.. the V-4s will win anyway. Bigger displacement is just an excuse for lazy engineering Ducati.
