    Yes, it all depends on the engine. Equipment is secondary in importance. The top two finishers in the Tour de France this year did not use "super bikes" with the latest technology.

    The engine definitely matters most, that's why some athletes build theirs illegally. You're going to see both engine and equipment in Reno, Will and Muffy have both. We might come up Sunday, should be a great crit to watch. Best of luck Richard, you'll have a blast racing some of the best.

    good, if you had a 13 yo kid you should be monitoring the net activity,. this guy is 41, not 13. the sopur ad is not targeting young ppl obviously. if you were that concerned why quote it.

    I think that ad is great, and yes it is targeting young people. Shes not naked.

    I don't have a 13 year old, but I know you get my point, was just interested in your response; which is pretty much "I'll be myself, everyone else watch out".

    The way I view the internet is that it is like a shopping mall. Everyone is there and able to hear what you say. Open forums like this are like the food court and so I act and talk like I'm in the food court. I'd never say out-loud what you posted in the food court at the mall. I might think it.

    If I had a family and we were sitting next to you eating when you said that out loud, I'd have moved my family and made a polite comment to you as we left.

    I'll add to that; we are both type-A men around the same age. I'm not expecting a comment from me telling you to watch your language to particularly upset you; and any comment from you telling me to mind my own busines doesn't particularly upset me either. We're just speaking our minds.

    Fuente, I'm not telling you what not to say. You do what you want.
