I love this comment by Erik!

"So, 15% of the time [18 seconds on the track] we have an acceleration advantage. During 18 seconds a lap you can see an acceleration advantage. Plenty of time for a redneck to holler out on the TV show, "Dayum, look at the power of that Hurley-Dayvudson!," or some equally edifying treatise. So we are ahead of the 600s by a percentage of 18 seconds x 7%, or 1.2 seconds, and the Aprilia by about 0.9 seconds. That makes sense. See! Unfair, unfair!"

Too bad that everyone who is anti-Buell anyway don't care about facts...they just want to say its unfair no matter what. You could prove beyond a reasonable doubt and STILL they would say "nope your wrong, you cheat!"

yeah i found it awesome that eric shoved cold hard facts into the face of the everyone who called him a cheat...like he said when the jap companys hire your riders after they win on a "cheaters" bike, theres someting to be said about that
