Hmmm, I wonder how it'll do compared to the Fireblade that they have heaps of information on....

They ran a couple weeks ago. He didn't do anything special this year. It was all about Ian Hutchinson and Michael Dunlap. Those 2 pretty much owned the TT.

Interesting to see if Dunlop would be faster on it that is...

Bruce was banged up from a crash during practice week. But, no data on that bike - and most of the parts for it were made in house by Padgett's....

There's a reason it wasn't given to McPint.


In other news, you guys heard a customer RCV was knocked over while parked during the TT right?

Insurance totaled it....from a parking lot tip over!
ouch

Yup, that's it! Title to the bid was "written off with frame damage"

So here's the question, you could buy 1 new superbike from all of the other manufacturers with that insurance check, do you buy 8 new superbikes and have your own magazine style shootout whenever you please?

Or do you replace the RCV.... which gets totaled from a tipover... (can you imagine how much Honda cringes when Cal Crutchlow leans into a corner if the frames are that fragile?)

I'd get the winner of each shootout for each category, except the cruiser one.
