Sportsbike Tank Capacity (rant)

Anyone else notice the insidious attempts lately by multiple manufacturers to induce hard-ons in buyers by posting lower wet weight numbers?

This happens because they're cutting your km's short by giving you a smaller shopping basket.

That's right, the once 18L/19L tanks have become 16L/17L! Helloooooo race bikes typically have 22L+ tanks. Why are manufacturers selling race replicas with about 5L- 6L less in tank volume?

**** you Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha, Suzuki, Ducati, MV Agusta etc. I'm on to your scam. Just for that I won't buy any newer superbikes. What's the point in me having 210hp if I can't outrun the police because I ran out of fuel?

Quote:
8. We have no tolerance for street stunters, street racers, or anyone else who gives motorcyclists a bad image. There are proper places for that type of thing, and a public street isn't one of them. Posting material which could reasonably be construed as celebrating or defending these types of activities will cause you to be flamed, and will probably cause you to be banned. Further, even if done in a controlled environment, FireBlades.org is not the place to discuss stunting tips, tricks, or techniques. There are plenty of other sites that cater to stunting, so please take those types of discussions elsewhere.

Is there anything else you do in life besides looking for any opportunity to quote your rule book?

I see you've been stalking every single post I made since the day you got served hard by the thread regarding learner licensing. STILL a bit sore? In fact I reckon everytime I post, some abject hysteria is induced and you rush to the rule book.

Don't take it too personally that you got lambasted. It just means you got other frustrations in real life you're itching to get rid of here

I'm out, sorry I can't feed your sexual fetishes anymore. I'm not putting my undies out on the clothesline as you seem to run to sniff them. You little arse-bandit you.

Re: Sportsbike Tank Capacity (rant)

Since you can't follow the rules and think you are the exception to them, there is only one course of action to take.
