Default Re: How Fast are You going? - I wana know

I think if I try to organize a NorCal racing event or series of events, there will be different classes of competition, it's okay to have the mixed field like ALMS auto racing, but racing a Morini or Predator 212 directly with a 49-66cc China bike is unfair. There could be an overall award, but podiums for the top three in each class would encourage close competition within classes.

I'd love to have a Dax GP50 Morini clone, but I can't really justify spending $400 on a powerplant. For a more powerful bike, I'm going to get a motorcycle that is engineered to handle and use the higher levels of engine power, then 100mph won't be scary because it will have stability and I don't have to worry about an unknown fatigue crack opening up catastrophically at high speed.
