Quit the smoke and mirrors game Sean. You know you wanna start racin' again and do a little sandbaggin' at the club level. I hear there's a couple fast guys up there who'll give ya a go. Marteen Hackathrottle and Stevens Vlipabout, or something like that?

Nope, this is the day he totalled a new R6. Roughly three weeks after he totalled the Daytona 650. He also broke his cocyx in this one, so let's just say it hasn't been a good four weeks for the guy.

Those Joe Rocket leathers look good on you. They say black makes you look thinner. Not that you look fat or anything. Just forget I said that. The red Alpinestars are your Sunday (race day) best eh? Better save the those for those foreign bike intros with the Italian model umbrella girls...You lucky dog... Actually I thinking of getting the some black Rocket leathers like what you have before I head down to Vegas for Freddies school...

It seems strange that "in this day and age" a major manufacturer is still making distinctions between (established) online and offline pubs. My perception was that Yamaha is more marketing-savvy than the other Japanese bike makers and should know better than this.

Burger Barn Report/Tank Bag Edition

So, give us the skinny, Sean. Is the new one .001% better than last year's? .002%? .003%?

ESOTERICA TODAY/EARLY stages of senility EDITION

Yeah, it’s getting so every time I read a report, I feel like I should be sitting here with a set of dial-calipers and a magnifying glass. Things keep going like they are, a guy’s gonna need to take advanced-geometry, and go to track-school, just to fantasize about riding.

This keeps up, I'll have to start reading Hustler.

We ought to make an example of...hmm...well, somebody...Damn It!

I agree 100%! The bastards should to be flogged! Unless, of course, they happen to read this board, and see things we (myself SO included) say about some stuff. In that case, I probably would blame them (the bastards) too much.

With the 2003 R6, is it difficult to fix the funky front end? Sounds like putting a 70 series tire on the front along with some simple suspension adjustments would do it? I ask because I'm looking for a track bike and have found some nice 2003 r6's. Thoughts?

My money is on the ZX-6.

Then again... it doesn't matter... no way i'd own a Yamaha... I know I know... there pretty. whatever.

I'm starting to think the motorcycle market is as brand loyal as the pickup truck market.

Yes, the 2003 R6's front-end feeling issue can be easily "fixed" with a swap to a race-profile 70 series front tire and by adjusting the suspension accordingly. -Sean

Wow! It’s the NEW & IMPROVED Kpaul!

You make a good point. The guy’s definitely a fine wordsmith (hear he’s an Okay rider, too).

Somebody gotta gun to your head, or something :)

Dude are you trying to get us killed ? I cannot believe that you would offer up your team hillbilly teammates for the simple need for vicarious pleasure. Clearly you will have to be dealt with.

For the record Sean can stomp me at the racetrack in every contest except for the footrace to the snackbar. I think I can take him there.

Oh yeah? Ok, Hillbilly Boy, you're ON! Racer Boy is going to kick your tobacci chewin ass all the way back to Idaho. Footrace, please you need two competitors for a "race". This will be more of a demonstration than a race. Bring It Bumpkin! -Sean
