Cool V fortuitious? ...Nope

“For me the angle is not a main issue. I think we could design a great bike
with 90 degrees
and a great bike with a smaller angle. There are some
advantages with a smaller angle and some disadvantages, especially for this
displacement. This displacement is obtained just increasing the stroke
because the bore is more or less similar to the 800, so the engine becomes
higher if you close the angle. There are some disadvantages in doing that if
the stroke is very high. But if the engine is higher it isn’t as long, so it is a
compromise.”

Quote Burgess Jan 2012
“The 90-degree is a very good engine although perhaps a little more difficult
in the packaging but not something that I would be afraid of.If you can
package a V4 the right way it's the best engine.If you spoke to most of the
engineers in the world their choice of engine would be a 90-degree V.
The
packaging issues are not impossible to overcome and it has won races in the
past, so no one can say that is holding us back.”
It is worth repeating:
"If you can
package a V4 the right way it's the best engine.If you spoke to most of the
engineers in the world their choice of engine would be a 90-degree V".


Nice one Larry..

So, here are my questions Larry. Will Ducati win some races this year? Are you finally going to do a proper track day with your Rc45?

looks like a call out to me. and I was poking fun at ya just because nobody ever sees you anywhere but in the war room, but no I haven't won any races in 2011, does that make you feel better about yourself? good, now lets move on.

I am dealing with crazy people in the War Room.. The 'no facts/all emotion' 'scientists'... So, it is hard to change gears sometimes..

I wasnt calling Larry out at all. I was complimenting him on his quote finds.. You have to admit, it's pretty choice. I was also simply asking if he was going to put his 'race machine' into the line of fire and let us know...
I also really wanted to know if Larry thinks Ducati will win in 2012?

However and alas... Methinks Larry may have packed up and gone. I wouldnt blame him either. I hope he finds an internet place where grown men can actually learn to use a simple, basic, uncomplicated ignore feature instead of sounding off at every opportunity.. to the dismay of all those who liked Larry's posts......

Ben

I started a thread.. Someone trolled in with a "Do you even own a bike" comment... Is that not an insulting, inflammatory comment? Why would you not tell that person to stop trolling? Instead, you wait for my answer?

Instead, you're going to tell me to read rules that he broke with his comment? This is how its going to be?

WoW!

Mom took the keys to goggys bike 4 years ago. So no, technically he doesn't own a bike.

You forgot 'Obama was born in Kenya'..
Tea time?

At least you haven't ruined your record of non truths and off topic nonsense..
Another guy who doesnt ride accusing others of not riding?
Doh..
