Drag racing is for those with testicles that want real speed.

It takes big ones to go 100+ with the knee down also.

Real speed is Twisty waiting until the last braking marker at 175mph and putting a knee down at 120 through the corner.. Any lame brain can twist the throttle it takes a real rider to cut a corner.. My goal is to be a 1/10th as good as Twisty at cutting the corners and I will be happy..

I'm just messing with him, I like all sorts of racing. But, he sounds like a typical ricer when he says that. . "Yeah, it's slow as **** but I'll take you in the twisties." Hell, Moto GP is by far one of my favorite sports to watch.

If that was true people like Angelle Savoie wouldn't be dominating their respective sports.

What series does Twisty race in?
