Anyone catch the latest issue of Sports Illustrated? There's an article on a professional golfer with a nice picture of him standing by his R1 Yamaha. At first I thought, "Cool, earlier this year they had a picture of Steve Rapp's endo (even though they said he 'washed out' instead of something more appropriate) and now here's a picture of a guy and his bike!" Reading further, it's apparent that SI has no access to any information regarding motorcyles. According to them, the R1 is the "fastest bike made". My condolences to you slowpokes with Blackbirds, ZX-12s and Hayabusas; you bought the wrong piece of machinery.

Yes, but that's only because you were racing against the YSR50 class! ;)

That statement is arguably true when you throw corners into the mix...for stock production bikes, of course. Aww, hell, I'll come out and say it: The fastest bike on the road is whichever one I'm on! :D

Mashuri, did you ever find that special helmet you were looking for? You know, the XXXXXL one to fit that head of yours. :D

Pete - ROFLMAO!!

Actually I purchased a special ego-sensative
helment that expands with the amount of
compliments I get about my riding abilities.
Lately, I've been having trouble fitting
in small tunnels and under bridges.
Mashuri you too may want to concider such an
investment :D

To be honest I haven't found a helmet to fit me yet. No matter...I'm too good to ever crash anyway.

I hope you realize I'm just kidding, Rossco. I wear about $1,800.00 worth of protection (custom Bates leathers w/ Bohn armor+back protector, Alpinestars boots, Tourmaster race gloves, Shoei X-Tec helmet) and hope I never have to use any of it! :)

Z06??? All I can say is get it, get it, GET IT!!! Everyone I talk to loves theirs. I personally have to have a drop-top but I know I'm sacrificing some performance in return. Have you been to the Corvette Forum? Go there if you haven't. Any questions you have about ANYTHING concerning Vette's will be answered on that board.

Thank goodness, Mashuri, I thought you were a squid! JUST KIDDING!!! :D :D

BTW, Mashuri, can you say "Z06"? I am drooling big-time over that one, and the wife is all for it!
