Cc vs skill

https://youtu.be/rDJZjdKai24

Perfect example on how skill outweighs performance.
“But I must has 1000cc to smoke meh friends” and then in the corners they smoke you on their 600’s.
Thought this was a cool video. Tbh I was a little disappointed the sportbike lost but it was a little out of its element.

Cc vs skill

I ran into a local for sale post on Facebook yesterday. Guy is selling a 2014 Ninja 300. Post read that it is taking up space because he upgraded to a 1k and doesn’t need it anymore. I immediately noticed that the bike had the OEM tires with massive chicken strips. I asked him how long he had been riding. His reply, “ not that long.”

The Number 5 bike was designed for that type of racing . As soon as I saw Frankenstien I knew he was going to take it before the flag dropped. The guy looked like he was riding a barkolounger he was so relaxed .

Re: Cc vs skill

Bike built for the intended purpose. Just like you don't see cruisers doing well in road racing, you don't see GSXR on the baja 1000, and you don't see adventure bikes dominating supermoto.

Yup, seemingly a little pointless.

I'm off to Donnington park in a few weeks for another spin on the Fireblade SP1's
