of course... me too. but not when ur runnin on big fast tracks like TWS (Texas World Speedway) & MSR CRESSON. that KTM will easily do 135mph on the front straights. it will out motor any 450 or 550 on the track. i know cause ive done it on that bike. ur comparing apples to oranges here. the smaller bikes like the 450 are much better on small tight tracks like GSS. trust me. i just had my 450 there 2 weeks ago and out rode every bike on the track. 600's,750 & 1000. didnt matter. mike and i ran circles around them all on motards

Yeah but you're forgetting one thing: you're a BMF.

So, your opinion, what would you prefer @ TWS (Texas World Speedway) or Cresson or Arroyo or such? A 400lb 150+hp tard or a your RR? That's more along the point I'm getting at.

Hey Jody I don't doubt anything you're saying here in fact these are the kinds of questions I need/want to hear.

So having said what you just said here would you say that the KTM as a big motard handles better or worse on MSR or TWS (Texas World Speedway) than your sport bike? Or does a smaller lighter motard handle better than the KTM? The KTM isn't all that much lighter than a 600cc sport bike and it won't have as much speed so which one would you say you could make a better lap time on. Also answer the same question comparing the KTM and a 550 motard.

Thanks,

u have me confused with steve a.k.a Macman... im a little 5'7" 175lb guy.

of course id want to ride my 1000RR @ TWS (Texas World Speedway). thats a no brainer ! but macman cant ride a sportbike. so thats why he rides the KTM. i was just explaining to you why he rides the big heavy tard. he bought it to run the big fast tracks like TWS (Texas World Speedway). we are fixin to start building him a 70hp. CRF 450X motard to ride at smaller tracks like GSS.

yes, the KTM has nowhere near the handling capabilities that my 1000RR has. the 1000RR wins that one hands down. yes, a smaller lighter motard is a better handling bike. what would u rather toss from side to side in the corners... 260lbs or 400lbs. it makes a huge difference. just ask macman. he is fixin to build a CRF 450x motard after riding ours. a 600 would turn a faster laptime with the proper rider. that day @ GSS there were no expert level riders out there to even give us a run.

I guess it takes all types. That's why there are all the different options.
I'll keep my RR, maybe get a CRF450 and be happy.

, I couldn't ride the motards on the street anyway. Probably wouldn't keep my license a week....
