Keep er' Between the Ditches
DTT BOTM WINNER
I'm just glad the Honda with the red tank won.
I guess part of what im not understanding too is that in a quick glance over the last 6 months or so, the only two bikes that won that WON'T do the ton have been my gt250 (which likely would do the ton in the right conditions and with a lighter than I 250lb rider) and a gt185 that was at least done in the cafe style. The rest may not have been a cafe racer style, they will do the ton, and that's your argument right? I have no doubt that even the dual sports (the klr and irks beemer) would crack 100mph.grandpaul said:NOWHERE has there been discussion of the fact this forum is still named "do the TON" (meaning or at least assuming, bikes here should be capable of doing the ton).
I HAVE NO OBJECTION to any person, and bike, any build, any brand, any style, or anything else EXCEPT bikes that CANNOT do the ton. If the NAME of the forum is "Do The Ton", I really believe the bikes here (at least the BOTM nominations) should be able to do the bloody ton.
Well said. I love this forum because of all the different bikes being built by very different people. Long may it continue as is .The only improvement to BOTM would be an increase in the number of people voting. With the forum's membership to have only 71 people bothering to vote is disappointing!
Do we even race from cafe to cafe? Or participate in scrambles races? Stop calling it a cafe racer if you just ride it to work every day (like I do)grandpaul said:Then really, the forum should be renamed.
Why name a forum Do The Ton if it no longer has much to do with actually doing the ton?
