    Re: PK-isms....

    it's an SV. if your throttle cable isn't an inch longer by the end of the race, you're doing it wrong.

    SV's don't have throttles, they have on-off switches.

    My favorite PK rant

    I repost it at least twice a year on SVRider when the gixxer shock klowns start pushing back.

It is clearly defined by science and mathematics. It follows every known physical law and postulate. Every action can be explained using the basic laws of physics, chemistry, quantum mechanics, and mathematics.

    The other only applies to motorcycles and nothing else. It clearly states that motorcycles are exempt from the first set of laws. It is the most simplistic of laws. The size and complexity of a problem and it's solution are directly related to the amount of money some jack ass wants to spend to fix it, and whether or not said jack ass can find some barn yard engineered solution on the internet.

    For example: A motorcyclist is traveling West at 35 mph. An oncoming car traveling East at 35 mph turns left in front of the motorcyclist. For simplicity we'll assume both vehicle slow to 20mph at the point of impact. According to the first set of physical laws the motorcycle and car collide with a relative velocity of about 40 mph (again for simplicity we'll say that vehicles collide roughly head on). The resulting force of the impact can be calculated using force vectors and extrapolations of E=MC*2. The result is major structural damage to the motorcycle frame, forks, triple clamps, swing arm, and axles. Cost to repair will be several thousand dollars. How ever, since the rider does not carry collision insurance, the second set of laws must then be applied. The result is the total damage is a clutch lever and some model paint to touch up the bar end. As long as the rider ignores the fact the front wheel is now 15mm closer to the exhaust and is 8mm to the side all will be fine.

    hahaha....the physics laws are great. I hadn't read that one before.

    I'm personally a fan of his advice for riding a motard fast at Loudon.

    "Chirp it twice and whack the fuckin throttle open! If it chirps three times you're going down"
