George - I am right with you on that thought. It isn't only Ed Key that goes fast on an SV although he definitely is a stand out. There is also Kyle Keesee and Rodolfo Ramirez from the Florida region that can really fly. Kyle was able to run a 2:08 flat at Daytona, on a stock SV, some 2 seconds faster than any other SV. He does pretty well against those Duc 1000s.
I still race my FZR400 although severely outclassed in all departments. Yes I could build the motor to a 489 and sit on a potential grenade under me. This FZR is a reliable ride that teaches me on so many demensions.
