I saw on "you gotta see this" an R1 hit another bike that had rolled onto the course at about 130, and from what I saw, R1's dont do bumps. Not well anyway. The guy on the ground did better than the guy that hit his bike by far. The guy that hit the downed bike broke 21 bones I think. It was a huge get-off.

YZ+bumps= good
R1+bumps= bad

Ok .......It IS official.

Over the last day or 2 I pulled my speedo off of my Schinn 3spd and modified it a little to fit my 4HUN.
I was going slightly up hill and the speedo indicated 44mph. (It had already gone around 2 times and nearly 3 when it read 44mph!)
That thing is just like new, so I know that it is exactly right.
I would love to try it DOWNHILL! :D

No, it's not, but it obviously went right over your stupid head didn't it.

If you go back and read the thread, someone was comparing a street bike speed to a dirtbike and how the dirtbike doesn't feel fast after the street bike. Hence my comment, now sit down and shut up.

WOW! Vegas, dude! You are funny, probably the funniest that I've seen! "stupid head", "sit down and shut up"! That is classic material man. Where do you come up with this stuff?? You just keep proving your brilliance don't you. I think that it is safe to say that we all knew what you were refering to. Maybe what I should have done is thank you for pointing out the painfully obvious. If it was not for folks like you, people would not know that riding on dirt and riding on the steet is different! Heck, everybody would be flying down the freeway on there YZ's looking for huge doubles and deep loamy berms. So..to reply to your original post, I'll keep that in mind the next time I come up short on a double while riding my CBR. As a matter of fact yznvegas, I'm just about to eat food. Can you come over here and tell me which one is the egg and which one is the bacon. There has to be a difference, but my head is to stupid to figure it out
:) .

Have a nice day :D ! or is it night :D

I was at Willow springs a couple of years ago and I past Barry Sheene on my 426, he was on his championship Suzuki. I went smokin past him in a two wheel drift cuz the knobbies dont bite the pavement well at 180. And man, if it wasnt for my Scott damper, I woulda died for sure, because I could feel the thing trying to headshake something fierce! Ole Bary walked over to me and was blown away. Kenny Roberts walked over and wanted to know my secrets, so he could get that rattle trap triple of his up to speed. It was a geat weekend. While leaving the park, I was loading my bike into the back of the space shuttle and.......

Shawn Was that you I passed :) Man we was hooked up
