As my first post, I thought it should be in the racing section since I am a racer (and now a street bike owner with my 10). The Suzki have TC. Those things sound just like the ZX-RR did at Laguna last year. That thing was loud (had to have the ear plugs in) and would sould like it dropped a cylinder or 4 coming out of the turns. There was a few teams going to protest the Jordan bikes a few time until the fixed their "engine management" thingy. This is my vid, but good to hear the TC. You could also hear it on the Road America race last weekend.

I only heard it once last weekend at road america but thats only because the freakin' announcers on Speed were always running there mouths and wouldn't ever shut up.

"Any man who says he is an AMERICAN, but something else also, isn't an AMERICAN at all.
We have room for but one flag, the AMERICAN FLAG .... We have room for but one language here, and that is the ENGLISH LANGUAGE...
And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the AMERICAN PEOPLE" TR

The video above was interesting because you can't hear that on SpeedTV. Are they (SpeedTV) editing the sound or what? I would think we could hear it somehow but that video was eye (uh, ear) opening. The Ducati sounded like a freaking beast, while the 4's shreeked. Cool video.

Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.

you could hear it at RA when Spies and Mladin were running together for a few laps down in the hairpin. I have it on tape and actually rewatched it to make sure I heard it.

Good Read! Funny how even the top racers think that traction control make riding the bikes and the races boring! Kinda like AMA Superbike this year and last year!!!

Hell yeah it's fast..........DUMBASS!
