    My best guess is that you never "blend in", @Bad Billy. :) And I do mean that in a complimentary way. ;)

    Wow, a photo is worth a thousand words, Billy! Great pic, BTW. I recall seeing it previously and it's fun to see it again, especially in the context of this conversation. :grinning:

    I got a bit curious as to the size of MotoGP riders while reading this thread. I remember reading something awhile back about how small those riders are so did a quick search and found this. Sees you're only 82 pounds and 7 inches taller than the average MotoGP rider! :) I'm sure all of it is pure racing muscle, though. And torque! ;)

    Thanks for that @Sandi T. I now see the issue, if it is 5-7 pounds for every inch over 5 feet then if I was 8 feet tall then I would be fine, if a little less aerodynamic! :D

    On the flip side though, when I was racing Moto-X in the 80's the bikes were so tall, shorter riders really struggled to get on them, I remember Dave Thorpe who was world champ being very similar height & weight to me back then, yes in those days I was more like 185-190 pounds before the piss taking starts! ;)

    I'm sure Marquez gets his fair share of piss taking on social media. As for any of us having a go, for me no way I'm happy for you to do it and for me to watch from the track side. You are definitely the man @Bad Billy :)

    Crikey Billy what’s happening to you :eek:

    The hole should be on the top side all the way through the filter to the bottom, then you thread the wire through the filter and twist her up:worried:

    You’ll never make a scrutineer,,,,stick to racing ;):)
