NEVER, EVER think that you need more power to go faster. 95 percent of track riders think think this and they are so wrong. Anders post was a good example of how some people just seem to feel comfy with a particular machine. Unfortunately a lot of us are like that. I feel so much more at home on my 998 then my 999, and I have ridden the 999 far longer. So no one on the planet can tell you which bike is "best" for you, period.

Yes, and to prove it, here is Simoncelli with his 2012 Vision 50 taking a mid-race break from the Italian MotoGP as he was so far in the lead:

Posa from sweden has dominatied this scene where the russians are really competitive, declined at 62 years old or so, he crammed the little batters, too funny.
