It is actually metric, but usually only used in the plumbing industry.

For those who care or are interested in bikes, here is my newest toy. Got rid of the Gixxer since it was too uncomfortable for my girlfriend and I when I ride two up. Decided it was time to pick up this monster, and man do I love this thing.

2008 Hayabusa w/ Yoshimura exhaust. ~190-200 hp at the crank.




See you guys at the Autocross, though, I won't be participating

These are a million times more comfortable than any of the actual "race" bikes. I'd classify it as a "Sport-tourer" on steroids.

Hell no, no turbo for me lol. Have to learn to tame this beast in it's current form before I commit absolute suicide

AKA "Supersport-tourer".
I once overheard a guy trying to get his money back from Struthers Bros. when he blew his engine after putting a turbo on his 'busa.

Wow I think that might void the warranty, but I am not sure.

Well you didn't say anything about the bolt. We broke one on my car and I don't know if he ever took the other one off.

Filled up today, did some maths... I got 15 mpg last tank >.< I'm starting to wonder if my short ram intake is hosing my Cobb Stg. 2 base tune and therefore my mileage. Granted I usually see about 20 and I've been running the AC, but still.

What do you guys with Stg. 2 WRX normally see for city heavy mileage? I also tend to keep my foot out of it. Most of the time I'm just puttin around town.

I used to get 17-20 when it was mostly city in my Legacy and I never keep my foot out of it.
