I never saw the post on the R1 Forum and I surely wasn't EVER going to mention anyone's name on any board...
I wasn't talking about anything particular above except that a lot of people pick and choose which versions of stories they relay...not just on this board of course. Find my reply about the beating someone 4/5 then they only talk about the one for instance.
As far as talking about character on the websites...read each and every one of your posts on this board, check how long we've both been members, and then ask yourself about character.
Your one of my friends and if you read every post of mine on any board (Same name on all of them except the ZRX) you will not find me mentioning anything untrue or ever mentioning any individuals especially in the negative.
I've beat on R1's, ZRX's 600's, ZX9's and others with the FZ1 and lost to a R6, Clay's TL1000, D's FZ1 and others...it's the game and I can accept that...but I don't think you can. You really don't know that much about me...I'd suggest you research a little.
I've owned or own 5 Kawasakis (Z1R, ZRX1100, 1200, ZX9R, KLR650), 1 Honda (Superhawk), 3 Yamaha's (FZ1, R6, R1) and 1 Suzuki (I was the owner of that "highly modified Suzuki Hayabusa that's never been beat") all in the last 4 years.
I like motorcycles and fast cars and very nearly bought a ZX10 myself but I chose to not have the latest and greatest because everyone expects 'it' to do the job.
As far as the front straight at TWS is concerned...read your post on racing the 04 R1 and seeing the elbow drop...same thing. I outweigh you by at least 60#'s BTW and D never passed you down the straight so I assume you weren't coasting BUT I NEVER posted any smack about that on here and only mentioned the occurance in an abstract post on the R1 Forum WITHOUT NAMES, dates, or even the place.
I really don't care if I have the fastest bike or not which is why I sold the Busa to Ed and bought the FZ1. I just get amused with your posts on here. I've got lot's of years of racing in my past and learned long ago there is ALWAYS someone with a faster car, bike, boat or anything else.
If it is important, pull my parts off of Mike's R1 in your garage and send them to me through D or E this week and I'll get my bike down there. I won't be able to ride it because of the clavicle (might have to get operated on again BTW) but it hasn't been ridden since TWS because I can't ride and you still have my axle nut and hardware.
It really won't matter in the end anyway because no one bike is best in all situations (one can just keep changing the game until the desired output is achieved) but I didn't make the wrong choice for me because I didn't take the dealer hit, which allows me a lot of flexibility to sell and buy again if I get the urge.
I have no ill feelings for you or anything else so I don't understand the total outbreak in your post in here...flaming away.
If my attitude has changed any in your presence, it's due to your posts regarding the other bikes and riders in your group...
This kind of crap actually does piss me off (as opposed to being amused)and if you want me to drop out of your 'group' and let you be a legend in your own mind then so be it.
