Default Pinks

Did anyone see TV show Pinks tonight? I was fliping channels tonight and cought the last 30 sec. or so and it looks like somebody lost their V-ROD. That means it got its a$$ kicked by something but I didn't see what.

Saw bits of that too. Got beat by a Suzuki I think. The VRod's clutch was smoked. Hate to see anyone win or lose due to a malfunction. I'd rather lose straight up than win against someone who's limping by.

That might be an old one. Guy on an old GS1100 hands the V-Rod dude his arse. The V-Rod was beaten round after round.

I knew I was dreaming to much to have it be a modded Warrior.

Yea, its a old Pinks. Guy pulls his dad 80's suzuki gs1100.out of.the garage and flat a$$ whoops but on the vrod. It really was pretty sad. The v rod owner didn't have a clue what he was up against.

Those bikes used to rule drags back in the day. I had a GS 850 and it held its own for quite a few years.

Yepperssss.........that's an old show. The bike was old GS 1100 and I think it might have been juiced up with a fresh set of Makuni Smooth Bore Carbs. Those things ruled the track in the back in the day until the GSXR models came along which happened to be built off of the GS 1100 platform.
