    Racing where? With who on it against who?

    The bike itself is cool as hell.

    When I was doing CCS at NJMP last month Barney was there testing the 1190 in a few classes. If I remember hearing correctly over the PA I think his best time was a low 25's (fastest lap that day was Eric Stump doing a 24.8). I have to say though, friggin bike sounds like a monster from another planet, lol.

    Good point, all depends on who shows and how hard he has to push it.

    The racing this weekend will be at Streets of Willow -- counter-clockwise, too. Not the best arena for larger bikes.

    I know!!! :D

    How dare they stick a water cooled V-twin in place of my beloved, late 60's techno, air cooled, pushrod tractor motor! :wow:

    In all seriousness, I do expect good things in 2012 from the 1190. I'll predict a top 5, possibly even a podium!! :rock:
