Nothing beats the sound of a Ducati WSB twin for mine. At the Phillip Island WSB races in 98 starting our bike in the pits we used a Honda stationary engine on a small trolley with a longish handle and a T bar with a twist throttle. The Honda engine had a Go cart wheel and tyre on the end of the crankshaft and the process was with the 996 Corse spec Ducati on the race stand I'd push the Go cart tire hard against the rear slick and give the little Honda engine Full throttle and spin the rear wheel up to maximum revs which took about 5 seconds. You could hear the drive chain whizzing around over the exhaust of the little Honda engine and Mal would pop the clutch on that angry 996 engine and it would start instantly. I was less than a metre from those Termi pipes as the engine lit up in an instant and it was a glorious sound. An angry, impatient, dangerous sound full of menace, with the big 65mm throttle bodies lending their voice. No Japanese four even at WSB spec could come close to that sound. I'll never forget that sound. Starting that bike was always a joy and just thinking about it gives me goose bumps. Ciao
You and I are going to be ex motorcyclists when everyone is forced to ride electric bikes. Ciao
