fred, you're right. i didn't mean to make sweeping generalizations. i also have a competitive spirit. but it's also in commoraderie. we don't rip on each other for riding other brands of mopeds, styles, years, whatever. we even help each other out before the race to get everyone going as fast as they can. and i like motorcycles and people of all types, except for people who are meanspirited.

mark, i wouldn't race your bike because it would prove nothing. of course you'd beat me. i'd be an idiot not to think so. i only have 50cc. my moped tops out at 35mph. i'm also geared for top end, so i don't have much acceleration. your bike is clearly faster. you win. i declare you the winner right now. i could only beat you if you ran out of gas, fell of your bike before crossing the finish line, or spontaneously exploded. that's why races have criteria, right? to make the playing field more or less fair and make even-handed comparisons.

my moped might beat a horse (maybe). does that make a moped better than a horse for riding? of course not! horses are fun to ride. and there's no comparison. they're not the same at all.

finally, all people are welcome this forum, too. but you should read this entire thread. this "mr. h" has posted here again and again and just deliberately tries to pick fights. most of the time i ignore him, sometimes i don't. it deepends on how bored i am.

anyhow. everyone should ride what they want. more power to you. but bragging that your 250cc motorcycle is "better" because it can beat my 50cc moped is rather ridiculous. a porsche can beat a honda civic. but does that make it "better"? only if you really like porsche (nothing wrong w/ that, but it's a purely subjective and normative position) or you only use max speed as the criteria for "better" (which is also subjective, why not pick color? or size? or fuel efficiency? or ease of maintenance? etc. etc. etc.)
