fun to watch
I saw it. Great racing! Much more fun to watch than the other races. The top three racers were really going at it. I actually was impressed how fast they were hauling on those sporties. Anyone who thinks Harleys can't lean should watch that. Yes, they're down bigtime on power compared to the open sportbikes, but that's what having 90 hp vs. 180 hp means. They sounded sweet! Too bad they didn't turn up the track volume more. Kudos to SPEED for showing it. Hopefully more in the future.
