Don't you just love those people that come up to you and talk to you about your bike and have to have something "better" than yours? I just walked out to have a smoke and this guy comes up to me and asked if that was my bike and I said yes, and that's about all I got in. He went on about he has this 929 drag bike with a supercharger that will kill my bike and he uses it everyday as a commuter to work and so on, blah, blah, blah... who is he trying to impress? Himself or me

That's nothin' dude. I had two guys interrupt ME once. And they were speaking to ME in two different languages. And this one time, at band camp....

Also looking forward to photos.

Reminds me of this punk kid who walked up to me and starts talking about how his bike can smoke mine. I was about to explain to him the 90% rider 10% bike thing when he started to tell me more about his bike. He tells me it is a 2000 RC51 and it "ain't stock either" and I was thinking yea right like a piece of trash like this could own a bike like that. He then went into detail about what he has done to it "yea...its got a Muzzy, K&N, blah, blah, blah, and a JET KIT".

After I caught my breath from laughing so hard I told him next time he told someone he had a bike to make sure he got his story straight. And explained that RC51s are fuel injected and therefore do not use jet kits.

And he still went on about how "I do to own it...and blah, blah, blah, blah..."

In this area there are a number of Suzuki Ninja's. They tell me they'll beat anything out there. One of them reputedly does wheelies!

Hey how'd you hear about my EX?


I have had people go on about how fast there bike is. I deliberatly kept the bike stock so I could hear these people talk. All I do is wait up for them at the end of the run. I do let them know that it is 90% rider and doesn't matter what bike you have.
