    So do I.

    That's a bit of a given isn't it....

    Anyway, my Lucas Rita ignition will it be affected by the cop-death-ray
    thing or is Lucas still at the valve end of technology?

  2. Not even that. Wick and flint, I think.

    Would it stop a Faraday cage?

    Champ says...
    My oldest bike (18 years this year) is the most technologically

    But it's the slowest and worst handling of all the bikes you own, so all
    that technology counts for nowt.

  5. It was somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the
    Fucknose. It wouldn't stop a faraway cage, that's for sure.
    I first heard of this utterly yonks ago and thought it wouldn't work on
    the car electrical systems of the day, being as how they were so crude.
    That, and the metal shielding of the bodywork.

    Might've caused the villians some mild annoyance, not being able to play
    toonz as the boombox burnt out.

    Nuke the fuckers, and count the bodies, it's the only way to be sure.

    You been watching to much Aliens. You forget to say from orbit.

    And wasn't Stinger was meant to be the be-all-end-all solution to car crime
    once upon a time ago?

    How about a "chatter to stop chases"? ......
    Bore the **** out of them on loudspeaker - one way to make a productive
    contribution to society from the labour/conservative/lib dem et al otherwise
    wasted with their canvassing crap?
    The little dickheads would soon lose the will to live given a recount of
    Frost on Sunday or similar, certainly take some amount of joy out of their
    activities anyway :eek:)

    I assume you mean the Turbo?

    I'd take issue that its the most advance technologically, especially
    compared against your GSXR.

    It's got a Turbo. So what? I've worked on 50 year old diesels that had
    turbos. Not exactly cutting edge.

    The materials; the calculations; the equipment used to design and
    manufacture your GSXR are far more advanced than the paper; slide rule
    and pencil used in 1971 (?) to come up with the Z engine.

    The amount of modern and advanced technology that makes the fuel
    injection system as effective as it undoubtably is trumps your rather
    primitive turbo.

    There again you may not mean your turbo; which makes this all rather

    How do you figure that one then? Shirley the EMS on the gixxer will be
    much more advanced, in processing terms, than that on the turbo?

    As others have pointed out, I /think/ he's trying to claim that:

    20-odd year old FI + turbo > 3 year old FI (in technological terms, and
    conveniently ignoring all sorts of other characteristics of the two bikes).

    Alternatively, he /could/ be fishing...

    Ace Guest

    Well yes, clearly, but equally clearly he's not thought about how much
    information is being sampled and acted on in the two systems...
    Shorely not?

    Pah - the turbo has fuel injection too!

    Champ Guest

    Just being a bit lazy, really. OK, it's got digital FI, a turbo,
    anti-dive etc etc. The gixxer has water cooling & 16 valves, but
    otherwise it's pretyy much a UJM
    I wasn't.

    Ace Guest

    And you don't think the superior engine design, suspension components,
    aerodynamics, electronics etc. etc. count as technology?
    Ace, Jul 13, 2004

    Eddie Guest

    Yeah, but water-cooled, multi-valve engines were around 20-odd years
    ago. What about all the other flashy stuff: fancy coating on the forks;
    materials used in the construction of the frame, engine, etc., that just
    couldn't be worked with back then; ram-air, even?
    Ah, well. One man's lazy response is another man's bait.
    Eddie, Jul 13, 2004
  16. What about leathers with humps and stick on helmet ears eh? Time has not
    stood still.( though I will except that a few people round here have had
    humped leathers for years).

    Champ Guest

    Mebbe. But evoluntionary refinements in, say, materials technology
    (thus allowing high revs, for example) don't get the juices going the
    way the word T U R B O !!! does, do they :)

  18. My GT380 had that!

    Yeah, right.
    Ace, Jul 13, 2004
  20. Yeah, right.
    Have you tried googling on "GT380 ram air" oh sceptical one?
