So Harley makes a slow factory drag racer for 30 grand and you say they suck, but Eric makes a slow factory road racer for 30 grand and he's sooooo fuggin cool? I don't get it. Maybe I need to be a liberal to figger that one out.
something tells me this thing will be competitive instead of needing its own class. On tight tracks especially, 100 ft-lb of torque could be good, esp. since it's in probably the most advanced chasis out there.
You only need to be a liberal in order not to have knee-jerk simplistic strong reactions to things outside your comfort zone, ie, practically everything in your case.
Given that this machine will have a 739cc advantage over the 600 SuperSports, if raced in the AMA Formula Extreme class, it better hold its own..i.e. it has a engine as big as a Hayabusa..I still wonder how the Buell frame would do with a Ducati or Suzuki V-Twin in it..Cool to see though. Keep trying Erik..
Could be competitive instead of needing it's own class???? Don't special rules make this thing even able to run on the same track with 600's?? Gee, isn't it a 1200 competing against 600's?? Am I missing something here? Are you really dense, or do you just act like that here?? Wouldn't a lightly modified, 8500 buck R6 run this thing into the weeds?? I guess I really DO need to be a liberal to see how 1200cc against 600cc is the same class. I guess you need to be simple and knee-jerk to see the irony of the duplicity of your thinking. If ignorance is bliss, you gotta be the happiest MF'er on the planet! This just in. The Buell is overpriced, slow, and unless they have special allowance for motor size, it ain't got a class. Get it Slick Willie??
lessee...if Burns is a kneejerk liberal who disdains the harley drag racer but likes the Buell RR,and you're a kneejerk Consrvative who likes the HD dragracer but disdains the Buell RR,then I must be a kneejerk moderate cause I like em both(LOL). Anything that brings variety to the race grids (and hopefully the podiums) is welcome to me. I would assume that the formula Xtreme 600 cc racers cost closer to 30K than the 10 K stockers but it really doesnt matter to me as a spectator. If this bike competes in the daytona 200, I may actually attend for the first time in several years...Im not really into watching hondas race each other but if Buell has a chance for a podium it could be fun. Politics and liberal vs.conservative rhetoric isnt important here.....I ride and race motorcycles and follow racing for fun ,and if unequal rules and games playing results in more competitiveness,thats fun and I'm all for it. And that applies to NHRA Pro stock or AMA road racing.
The only point I was making is how JB could rag H-D so hard for their 30 G drag racer, and kiss Eric full on the lips for making basically the same thing. Since he realy has no reason for it he has to then attack something other than the truth. It's the liberal way.
