From the desk of Johnny B:
It's our own little World Superbike stop, really, but withoutthe whiny four-cylinders. Mini could pass for Colin Edwards if he were shorter and muchbetter-looking, Hackfu Calvin's almost indistinguishable from Haga if you're a round-eye likeme (though his McRib/fries staple diet means he's also too tall), and with longer sideburns I couldpass for Troy Bayliss in the dark--but I don't have to because we brought in a real Australian toserve as expert witness. Aaron Clark is actually a New Zealander, but comes to us by way ofAustralia, where he raced GP bikes extensively. But now, he's here to help us get on with the final flog of our Year 2002 Open Twins Shootout.

We visited the Streets of Willow as well as the Big Track at Willow; its very fast layout anddearth of slow corners the very antithesis of the tight and technical Streets course. Then we spent some time at the Drag Strip of LACR and managed to put a few hundred more street miles on all the machines in the process...

After reading the story, let us know what you think. And, of course, don't forget to check out the Spec Chart, just like y'all requested.
