ok fine I'll drive across the country and race him
Nah. He just doesn't want us to know that he went against his word and is riding that overpowered, underinsured monster all over the county. ;)

Now look me in the eye and tell me you haven't been.

heres a race: tl1000s vs. old man on marauder
My money is on the old man on the marauder since the tl1000s doesn't have a rider. ;)

Me too!
"Youth and Talent are no match for Age and Trechary " or something like that! :twisted:
Old Man!!!!! WTF? I resemble that remark. Watch out I've got smoke screens, oil slicks and a bag of marbles on my bike. Yer damn right I'm trecherous, and I'll cheat too. Mwuhahahahahahahaaaaaa

@ Skate1248: I'll race ya on one wheel. or two, whatever----whenever

So If I jump on a 600 and get my track times then jump on a 750 and do the same track, you're saying that it will be the same time. Bigger cc's have more potential to be faster. Common sense.

Yes of course bigger is always better !

Wrong !

On a track with more turns and shorter straightaways the 600 will shine. On a longer track with sweeping turns and a longer straightaway then you'd want to be on a 750.

The extra HP is there mostly at the top end so unless you're on a track that'll allow you to reach that top end the extra CC's are only dead weight.

But we digress, I think that what was meant to be said was that a rider increasing his skill level will allow him to be faster and is a better investment than betting a bigger bike to go faster.

Sure a skilled rider on a 750 will probably be faster than the same rider on a 600 . But the bike with the better rider will probably beat the rider with less skill even if the lesser rider has the bigger bike.

if I wasnt on a computer I would look you in the eye and tell you. my bike is still sitting in the shop
The 750 is only about 5 lbs heavier than the 600.

I knew about the differences of the 600 vs. the 750 vs. the 1000 and how long track/short tracks are affected. I just felt like messing with Rowdy since no one has misspelled anything in a while. :p

Now, I gotta get into photoshop and create a flyer for the big Skate1248 vs. LayinLo race......:lol:
Didn't you read ? He's chickened out of racing you , now he wants to race an old fat bald guy on a Marauder. Next he'll be challenging Pinhy on his Model T Suzuki.

Note: I added "bald" and "fat" for dramatical effect. I'm not that fat.
