There's no money under the table. I'm sure that all of the manufacturers realize that having Ducati--and now KTM--in the series is good for the health of WSBK, especially since there is so much focus on Europe.
Your 800cc "plan" makes no sense. You still have a 200cc difference. You think the Big Four wants to create new 800cc models when their literbikes sell and race well already? Why the hell would they want to do that?
You've got the tail wagging the dog again, genius. Did you forget that racing exists to develop and market bikes for the consumer?
I never thought the letters you received were true, until I had a mind-blowing experience I'd like to share with your readers. I was taking a 60-mile motorcycle ride through Washington State back roads that make Deal's Gap look like a Nebraska highway, the pocketa-pocketa-pocketa of my finely-tuned steed singing a symphony as I passed Troy Bayliss on his Ducati like he was standing still, and all of this with my bike still in the shop. My riding group, composed of lean, muscular Gen-X boys whom I had taken under my wing (more on that in my next letter), stopped at a gas station where I beheld the most stunning creature I have ever seen in my 40, er, 45, uh, 42, uh, forty-something years on this Earth. She was a dusky Palestinian wearing skin-tight leathers and a Semtex belt. I nearly creamed my jeans imagining her binding my hands and feet as she probed my Bekaa Valley with the bayonet of her AK-47 while calling me her "dirty little Zionist entity." I instantly forgot about my wife/ex-wife/girlfriend/blow-up doll/semen-encrusted sock as l felt the burgeoning growth of all three inches of my "Seattle Space Needle" (that's eleven-and-a-half Chicago inches)...
LOL By conincidene, when I was Israel I did have an intimate relationship with a Palestinian women (before I was married). It in no way influenced my political beliefs. The Arabs and Palestinians I met were very friendly to me..and they have the best food...kosher stuff is a little bland for me.. You should go to Israel and see for yourself. I admire the Israelis but their eye for an eye mentality hasn't brought them peace. i.e I hope we don't have to live that way. The Palestinians have a legitimate point of view despite what Bill Buz O'Rielly says on Faux News. .. Try to be opened minded..
Thanks for reminding me of Michelle and our walks on the beach near Tele Aviv. I love the Mediterranean
The Space Needle thing was really funny.... I don't care what the other GPTBs say about you. You are a great guy kgay.
