[QUOTE=urbanXJ;3806561]are you delusional ,bipolar or both?

QUOTE]

Niether, I can see both sides of a complex argument and recognize that there is middle ground. That and I enjoy a fun debate every now and again. Its all good. IE

Locals don't like bikers distrubing the peace
Bikers want to enjoy one of the few twisty roads around.
Bikers make conscious effort to enjoy road while maintaining the peace.

or

Some feel the only safe place to ride(hard) is the track
Some ride Hard on the street
Some go to track and it redifines what is safe for the street.

Something feels wrong with his speedo, he should be overtaking people much faster than he seems to be. I guess it could be a depth perception problem on my side though.

Sprocket change. Helps with the wheelies but throws the speedo off.

Speedo error will be a percentage difference in relation to the size of the new sprocket(s).

^This. There's a website that will estimate speedo error with gearing changes. Couple gearing changes with the fact that bike speedos usually read 7-9% high from the factory (you're going slower than what your speedo says), and the error can be pretty large.

My bike was off 7% from the factory, and I went down two teeth in the front. My speedo error jumped to 18% (according to GPS). I had to correct it with a SpeedoDRD.
