Pinks tonight....

Tonight's show focuses on a motorcycle drag race in which one of the contestants is racing a V-Rod. I hope he doesn't let me down! LOL.

Re: Pinks tonight....

I TiVo'd it but have not watched it yet. I heard he lost but was crying about a slipping clutch before the race. DOH! Aw well... I'm not one to say a Rodder will beat everything.

Re: Pinks tonight....

i couldnt believe it but the GS1100 took the rod, it was close at the last race,, bout 1 bike lenght diff. i didnt the he could take him, the GS kept pullin wheelies out of the box losing time, so the rod took him on the little end and the GS prevailed at the big end..



he was a good loser..

Re: Pinks tonight....

On the Rodder forum, they're talking about the clutch but also saying the Rodder had no clue how to launch. I can't wait to see it. Not making excuses for the guy, though. If you don't know how to race, then practice until you DO know how then make an out of yourself on TV

Re: Pinks tonight....

I was going to start a thread about this. Pinks is an awsome show, the only one I have watched was the Fbody grudge match in chicago, and I realy liked the show. Were the gs and the rod racing heads up? if not how many lenghths were they giving each other.

Re: Pinks tonight....

You mean the GTO and the 29 Ford?


The ford wanted 1/4 of the track on his first run, they agreed to give him 3 lengths.

Re: Pinks tonight....

I watched my TiVo'd Pinks last night. It weren't pretty. The dude's launches reallywere pretty bad and he was whining about his clutch. There's an easy mod he could have made to the clutch before racing whouch would have fept it from slipping.. Why he didn't, I'll never know.

Re: Pinks tonight....

Actually I was talking about the suzuki and the Vrod, but I have to see what your talking bout, I love rods. I had no idea they had a rod on the show.

Re: Pinks tonight....

I liked to fact that the GS1100 gave the Rod a 15min break for his bike to cool off and a bike length and still toke him at the end.

Re: Pinks tonight....

Took him convincingly, too.... Oh, and you didn't mention the bike-length handicap. That fella with the Rod had no business racing it.
