Re: 800 GP Bikes No Slouch!

Nicky said yesterday it was obvious that the 800 could carry more speed on entry and exit of corners. If you drop a few mph on top end but gain in corners it is easily possible to turn faster times without gaining actual top end performance.

Re: 800 GP Bikes No Slouch!

Didn't Hodgeson say something to the effect that Miller's layout reminded him of Qatar? The only reason Bostrom and others dig on Road ATL is because Panos won't change the run off on 10-10a. The wall is simply too close. Otherwise, Bostrom loves the track.

The ST 4 makes more power but the ST 3 has a better torque curve. No S, yet. BTW, I'm not the twin hater. KP thinks the motor has outlived it's racing life. He is the GMP. We'll all pay homage to him- yeah, right.

Just take the Hawk GT out there and you can run full tilt all day.
