Hmmmm....

I've just finished running the 910R in. I pulled up at the lights today next to some hoon who thought a poxy Ford Falcon could beat me away from the line. Since it was run in, I thought "I'll show him what real power looks like!"

Now to the point of the post...

Why does MV Agusta fill the front tyre with helium?

John..... I think I'm to blame! ..... for the gobshites in jamjars thinking they can blow away bikes..... I was on a DT175. Pulled up alongside a gobshite in a Fiat Ritmo 105CL... the sporty version....... The shootout was in a place called Palmerstown... on the road to Lucan... on the outskirts of Dublin...

.....the Lights went from Red to Green... I dropped the clutch ....and Nothing happened..... the sporty Fiat comprehensively blew me off... to the shame of ALL of bikerdom.....

.......my back wheel was on a wet manhole cover AND spinning like Karl Rove in Election season....

Sventekoz........ hope you explained that YOUR helium, was a recently discovered isotope...

On the other thread about the guys in the SR71, my friend and I were having some fun on the bikes (me on F4 and he was on his 996 Duke). We caught up with this guy in a WRX on a straight piece of moorland road with no other traffic around. The guy was clearly going for it, around 140 and was concentrating so hard he didn't realise we were coming up behind him. We passed him as one machine almost at errr. rather high velocity and I snook a glance over at him as we went by. The poor bloke nearly shit himself when he realised he wasn't alone and I raised an apologetic arm before we left him as an ever diminishing speck in the mirrors. Don't try this at home kids

At least he was a little humble. I've found that lost of guys in WRXs are anything but.
