How about "the difference is below experimental tolerances." I didn't want to use big scientist words because you don't seem to grasp the concepts.

Don't argue with him. . .IT'S A TRAP!!!!!!!! Never argue with an idiot, they will just bring you down to their level and beat you with experience! Based on the OP's ramblings on this forum, I have drawn the conclusion that, at some point in her life, his mother crossed paths with the once great GIXXERBILL and the OP is the result of that chance interaction. If the OP ever shows videos of himself riding wheelies on a goldwing or doing christ airs with the cruise control set at 70MPH we'll know beyond a shadow of a doubt who his daddy is.

I gave you r6 data and two liter bikes data. What have you done with it? Did you watch the videos even?

How would you know this without even gathering the data, much less looking at it, and furthermore not even understanding what the data's intended use is?

Look out, your hubris is showing.

If I don't understand its intended use, its because you failed to convey it. And that begs the questuon: why? The internet isn't some magical place where other people altruistically do your work for you.

I stated in easy to read terms what the purpose of the data was. I've showed this thread to some people for lulz and they understood what I was after without any further explanation needed... but I'm sure you're super smart and it is someone else's fault if you don't understand something.

The internet kinda is like that, though, and it is reciprocal. Most of the questions answered are answered just because people wanted to help, and if people DON'T want to help, they don't answer. I help people when I can, and when I can't seem to figure something out, I ask for help. Help is appreciated, but not really expected.

Then I do understand its use, but you don't. You want data "for highway use" about bikes ability to do things that are expressly forbidden on highways. So you want race data, but dont want race data from race bikes. That youre somehow going to use to compare to determine which bike is the best not to race. I can go around this ridiculous loop again if you'd like.

If race data is anything beyond the speed limit, then yes, but that isn't what race data actually is.

Also, if you've ever driven on a Houston road, with your head not in your , mind you, you would know how few Houstonians give a about what is "expressly forbidden on highways."

So you're, then, asking us to break the law for you and give you data? I'm not altruistic, obviously, and I sure ain't risking my wallet/time/jail for your raceymcnotracebutkindarace data collection.

I'm collecting data that would be little use to someone who is concerned with traffic laws, outside of racing in one way or another, or the Autobahn, I guess.

It's perfectly fine if you don't want to have anything to do with this. You, and everyone else, are under no obligation to collect or share any data whatsoever. I don't understand why people seem to think I think otherwise.

You see acceleration tests up to 120mph and back down to 0 on public roads often?

So once again, you want data "for highway use" concerning things that you shouldn't be doing on a highway, ESPECIALLY in light of your contention concerning "how few Houstonians give a about what is 'expressly forbidden on highways?'"

What people should or shouldn't do is irrelevant to this, as the fact of the matter is, people do it. I have no contention with people breaking stupid, outdated laws, and even if I did, why would that matter?

I missed the part where mr. P analyzed a Kawasaki and aprilia from my videos? Could you quote that for me?

We all know what data you and think it's stupid and already available since Mr. P used already available data to say how faster it is. So while you thought it was a super cool idea, your data collection method is flawed and it wasn't original research or anything worth going to jail over.
