I was installing my Scott's Damper on the other day, and this guy walks up by my building with his girlfriend and says, "Hey I like your ninja, ninja R1 is it?" Then he continues by saying, yeah his buddie's R6 will whoop my R1 in the quater mile.:dunno Then he continues and says, "yeah, I can't quite handle the r6 and the r1 isn't enough power for me, so I'm getting an R3." :crash
Then I say OK, I and I agreed with him so that I wouldn't start any beef(I don't want him to kick down my bike later). But do people really think that an R6 is faster than an r1 because 6 is greater than 1? What an idiot.

Just the other day I had to explain to some idiot that the 1 meant 1000 not 100. He then asked me why they didn't call it an R-10.

I wanted to :2bitchsla him.

Your first sentence sums it all up, this guy and his girlfriend!! He most likely was trying to impress his chick with his ....ummm.. "knowledge" of all things motorcycle. I'd love to see him on the street with an R3, What a pantload. Was the girl at least good looking?

Just last week a guy was saying that his buddy had the first year R6 with alot of motor work done to it. Put out more power than any of the newer bikes. I said Hmmm? I used to have a '00 R6, is your buddy running Noooooos? He said "No, theres not enough room under there after all the motor work. I'm thinking ok,. So, how much power is your buddy putting out? I've got 138 on my R1. He said Oh no, it's got more power than an R1. Luckily I had to leave at that point so he didn't see me laughing.

I had a guy ask to race me in his F and F eclipse. He said he could do the quarter in low 13's....i sorta laughed..he wants to race me title for title his car for my bike. People that don't ride don't realize. And yes I have had my bike called,"One of them ninja's" i mean i understand why they would say that..you know with Yamaha big as hell on the lower fairing and Robotic R1 decals all over the bike. Let alone my yamaha jacket. It is an easy mistake

Actually, if I remember correctly there was a mockup done by yamaha called an R3.

I believe that is an RZ350 oil burner with TZ bodywork and R1 paint/decals

or did you already know that?:crash
