Obviously you don't race much or at all

Research, vs. Motor, vs. (R+M)/2 ratings.

Yes I do race and I have tried race fuel and did not notice any improvement at all. As a matter of fact it ran worse. So tell me why should I fix something thats not broke and pay $7.00 per gallon?

Even with Race Gas....
A properly tuned and jetted machine runs well and generates more torque and HP. Weather it's using Pump Gas or Race Gas.
If you are not jetted properly for the fuel and condition your bike will run like crap, thats a given.
There is much data to confirm that race gas makes a difference in engine temp, and sustainment of HP for longer periods over Pump Gas. There is also data showing longer upper end life due to the lower levels of carbon produced during combustion.
I do not know "ANY" professional riders or Teams that run down to the local BP or Shell station to buy their fuel to race with.
You appearently like pump gas, and that's fine. I'm not attempting to belittle you or say your opinion is wrong. What I'm saying here is that there is substantial data to confirm the properties and benefits of using race fuel, but your bike has to be properly setup and configured to reap those benefits. For some of us it's worth the extra time and effort.
