Re: [ST] Bike or Rider?


It's quite a challenge really.  If you got it street legal you could
talk all that stuff up and maybe think you got your money's worth.

If you bought it and sat on it on the grid you'd have a heck of a lot
to live up to!

Mixed blessing advertising like that perhaps...?  Especially buying off
advertising like that!

I just saw a classified add for a race bike for sale.  It was touting
how the bike was a champion with all "x" amount of pole starts, race
wins, etc.  It got me thinking.  As great as that all sounds, and no
doubt the bike is preped as good as it can be, it's still all the rider.
 The bike can't win that all on it's own.  It needs a rider.  And that's
not all.  It needs a rider who can utilize that top notch bike to it's
fullest or beyond.

It reminded me of these golf club ads touting extra distance and
strokes off your game.  Sure a club design can add 50 yards to your
game, but if you suck (like I do) your slice will only go that 50 yards
further into the trees. :-)

I think that goes the same for motorcycles.  All that technology and
setup isn't gonna do a lick of good unless you're able to use it
properly, right?

So, bike or rider?  I thinks it's a mixture of both.
