Then if it wasn't the air resistance then maybe it was dragging your ego that slowed it down
And I saw a picture of you. You qualify for the title adult how?
I think your just angry cause they made the sidewalk too close to your butt
This is an ego driven sport. The difference is some of us deserve to have one...
You can call it anything you want, but some of us really do know and understand these bikes better than the vast majority of riders. From the simplest things like knowing how reasonably lower tire pressure offer more grip & compliance versus the guys that think they have to use the max pressure rated on the tire to be "safe" all the way up to what type of fork valving and oil height is required for certain race tracks and why. Yes, there just might be someone that does know more than Joe Schmoe from Florida who happened to find his way to the internet.
Some of us do the behind the scenes testing on parts before the general public even knows those parts exist. Some of us write the magazine articles that many riders use to form opinions on products because they lack the experience to discern the differences themselves. Some of us are or have been employed by professional road racing teams. Some of us get to ride the newest hottest bikes at the press intro's and some of us have built a reputation on backing up our over-inflated ego's with eyes wide open results in front of everybody at the racetrack under controlled conditions. We do it with no excuses instead of hiding behind a keyboard doing nothing, but talkin $#!* on the internet and wadding up our streetbikes on a simple daily commute.
You can talk all the crap you want Barton boy as I find it mildly amusing providing you keep it civil, but the bottom line is I am one of those people that knows what he is talking about and I have the facts, experience & credentials to back it all up.
I make my living by setting up the suspension on sportbikes, testing parts & instructing track riders. We're the guys that the top club & many pro racers come to when they need help. Now if that doesn't give me some credible input on these forums then maybe you can tell me what you do that adds so much weight to what you post...
Barring that, what I have learned on these forums over the last 10 years is that most posters that are seriously seeking answers would rather have them from an egotistic guy that really does know the truth rather than from a smartass that makes up his own answers based conjecture.
