Canadian Superbike fans?

Is there any Canadian Superbike (or 600 Sportbike or Open Sportbike) fans out there? If so I'd like to hears some opinions on riders and some views on the series(s).

Guess who ?


I haven't been following it that much. I only caught the first race at shannonville. I don't get speedvision so I have to rely on TSN.

How about Owen Weichel on that zx7rr !

I've got something for you: "Z" is pronounced "zee," not "zed." Dumbass canucks.

Honestly, I love watching Canadian Superbike. The shitty tracks with their undulating pavement and in-your-face concrete barriers make for some serious on-the-edge excitement. In WSBK and AMA racing, the announcers sometimes have to wait for the infield dust to settle to be able to tell which racer crashed; in CSBK, they have to wait for the racer to come out of the shoulder-high grass. LOL.

Shannonville's track has grass growing out of the cracks in the corners.

It's a little scary to drive over the first couple of times, but it adds to the "serious on-the-edge excitement" as you so put it.

Its not "zee",that implies that there is something after ZED like another letter,which we all know there is not and"Zee" has a flowing sound the way it rolls off your tongue."Zed" has a finality sound to it meaning there is nothing after the letter ZED.That is why it is pronounced this way.And before you Americans start bashing Canadians,remember that Pete started this!.

I AM CANADIAN

To further distiguish us from Americans, I'm thinking of petitioning the Canadian goverment to change the pronounciation of V to Ved. As in SVed650 or VedFR. What do you guys think?
